An Interview with Dr. Nixon:

Why did you decide to focus on pediatric dentistry rather than general dentistry?
I had a great example from my dental school professor about how cool it could be to treat children. It all started with an outreach program on Saturday mornings in Chicago!

Do you have kids?
I have two beautiful daughters, Kai and Malia.

What are some of your “tricks” to help ease kids’ fears about their dental visits?
Talk about something they LOVE!

What’s the best part of your day?
Heading to my bed at the end of the day and sleeping.

What’s your favorite kids’ show?
Scooby Doo!

What’s your favorite color?
Orange!

Do you have a sweet tooth? If so, what’s your favorite sweet?
I tend to stay away from sweets as much as possible, but I do like Key Lime pie and dark chocolate covered almonds.

Have you always wanted to be a dentist? If not, what did you want to be as a kid?
I knew I wanted to be a dentist as soon as I looked in a career book and noticed only 2% of women were in the field of dentistry at that time. I could have a family and still work, too!

Do you have a role model or a mentor? Why do you look up to them?

My parents are the perfect role models. They demonstrated unconditional love, strong faith, and the importance of being kind and respectful to others.

What is your favorite sports team?
I don’t have a favorite sports team, but I do cheer for the local teams!

Finish this sentence: When I was a kid…
My twin brother and I would wake up, pack our lunches, and go exploring in the woods together!
