switching to pedo

So I currently work in a general practice and applied for a position at a pedo office, a pretty big one for my area. My concern is that I’m not sure if I’ll get burnt out because of how many kids you see. Also does anyone that went to pedo miss general practice. Any advice would be great.

The only way to know if you’ll get burnt out is to try it! This is where working interviews are helpful; they are not only for the office to see if you’re a fit, but if the office is a fit for you. It is an increase in patients per day, but if you love kids it may be right down your alley. I once worked with a hygienist who worked one day (the day I was off) in general practice and the other days in a pedo practice and it was the perfect mix for her. So there’s always this option to help with any burn out. Again, you can only know if its a fit if you give it a try because what works for one hygienist may not necessarily work for you. The best of luck to you!
