Since first entering the dental field more than 20 years ago, Dr. Grace Yum has quietly become one of the leading pediatric dentists in Chicago and beyond, as well as a thought-leader among dentists nationally. Dr. Yum found her passion for dentistry when she was 18 years old. She first worked as a dental assistant, progressing on to dental school, advanced training in pediatrics at Chicago’s leading children’s hospital, and then climbed the ladder to eventually start two new construction, fee for service, practices, and sold after 11 years. As a certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Yum has earned a certification held by less than 5% of all dentists in the United States.
Dr. Yum has an active presence on social media, where she brings together patients, their parents, other dentists, and working moms. Most recently, she founded Mommy Dentists in Business, a private Facebook group of over 6,800 mommy dentists in the United States and around the world who are dedicated to sharing best practices to achieve excellence in dentistry while balancing life and work.
