Pediatric Dentist, Dr. Kevin Boyd

Kevin Boyd is a pediatric dentist with over 20 years experience delivering outstanding dental healthcare to infants, children, adolescents, and young adults with physical and/or mental disabilities, and other special needs. After graduating from Loyola University's Chicago College of Dentistry in 1986, he attended the University of Iowa for his advanced residency training in Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Boyd also holds an advanced degree (M.Sc.) in Human Nutrition and Dietetics from Michigan State University where he participated in research projects related to unhealthy eating and how it contributes to tooth decay, obesity and Type 2 Diabetes. His strong academic background in nutritional biochemistry has been instrumental in motivating the importance he places on nutrition as being a key component of each child's dental health plan. He has been on staff at the University of Illinois College of Dentistry, Rush Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center and Michael Reese Hospital as an attending clinical instructor. Following this, he was in charge of the pediatric division of dentistry at the University of Chicago Hospitals and Clinics and La Rabida Children's Hospital where he also served as a member of the U of C Cleft Palate Team—a highly specialized group consisting of plastic surgeons, oral surgeons, pediatricians, otolaryngologists, speech pathologists, orthodontists and pediatric dentists, who manage the physical, emotional and social challenges of children with facial abnormalities.
