She is a mother and a certified pediatric dentist, a certification achieved by only 5% of all dentists in the U.S. Dr. Yum is the former founder and practice owner of Yummy Dental & Orthodontics for Kids and she is also the founder and CEO of Mommy Dentists in Business.
Mommy Dentists in Business was started in June of 2017 by Dr. Grace Yum, while on a business trip with her husband.

The Facebook group was a way to connect dentists from all over the world, especially dentists like herself, moms that are business owners.
In addition to managing the MDIB community, Dr. Yum hosts her own podcast, Mommy Dentists in Business Podcast. With 20 seasons and counting, Dr. Yum’s podcast has been in the iTunes top 100, was ranked #3 of 15 of the top dental podcasts by Patterson Dental’s “Off the Cusp” publication and has been downloaded over 200,000 times.

Dr. Yum has appeared and was featured on TODAY Show on NBC nationally, NBC Chicago as a repeat guest, Parents Magazine, Parenting Magazine, Chicago Parent Magazine.

Learning To Care Well For Yourself: The Psychology of Secure Attachment
What does it mean to provide yourself with self-care? It starts with your sense of self. The science of attachment theory offers a beautiful lens to understand what it means to have a healthy sense of self and how to care well for your sense of self. It’s no secret that many Mommy Dentists are great at caring for others but struggle to care for themselves. Mommy Dentists will have the chance to explore their sense of self and how they can use practical therapy exercises in their own life to provide self-care guilt-free. Psychological Self-care is as vital as brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day

Pursuing health, wellness, and the ever-elusive self-care for the MDIB CEO
What does it mean to be healthy? How do we define self-care? And when life gets busy, how do we make time for any of it? We’re playing the role of business owner, medical professional, mother, friend, partner, neighbor–you name it. The busier and more complicated our lives get, the harder it can be to implement appropriate and successful ways to care for ourselves, and stay mentally and physically healthy. Participants in this course will explore what it means to care for themselves holistically and examine what gets in the way, from the workplace to home and everywhere in between.
