Michael King, D.D.S.
Comedian and dentist, Mike King, has built his pediatric dental practice in an unusual manner.
He incorporates comedy into his dental office in order to relax the children. Kid’s jokes, and magic tricks are all part of his treatment. His humorous holiday greeting cards are so popular; other dentists and patients collect them. One even sold on eBay for $100!
Dr. Mike’s father, Sid, was owner and MC of “Sid King’s Crazy Horse Bar” in Denver. (It was so famous, Clint Eastwood shot his film “Every Which Way but Loose” there.) With this background, Dr. Mike began entertaining audiences at a young age and has never stopped.
In addition to practicing dentistry, Dr. Mike also enjoys performing. In the comedy club circuit he’s known as “The Fifth Dentist”. You know, “Four out of five dentists recommend sugarless gum”. Well he’s the fifth! He appears weekly at Broadway Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, and Gotham Comedy Club. He also takes his hilarious stand-up routine on the road, especially to dental conventions. Currently Dr. Mike is working on his one man show, “The Fifth Dentist.”
Mike has managed to balance his love for pediatric dentistry with his love for the entertainment business.
His greatest joy is spending time with his family. He and his lovely wife, Sophie, have a daughter, Annabelle.
