Dr. Danny King, DDS

Children’s Dental Zone Owner
Pediatric Dentist

In 2005, Dr. King founded Children’s Dental Zone and set out to revolutionize the pediatric dental experience for the whole family. After eight years of refining and building the brand, he took the opportunity to design and build his “dream” facility and take the practice to the next level.

By utilizing his passion for architecture, he set out to design a genuinely state-of-the-art modern facility like no other… literally in the country. Dr. King has set the benchmark in the dental community by not just setting Children’s Dental Zone apart by offering the most beautiful and inviting environment, but even more so in delivering a one-of-a-kind experience with 5-star exceptional customer service. All this would be pointless if he couldn’t draw the most talented, caring and friendly pediatric specialists in the industry to provide the best care for your child(ren).

Throughout his nearly two decades in the dental field, Dr. King has gained invaluable experience. Dr. King was affiliated and gained unique experience with Texas Scottish Rite Hospital and Children’s Medical Center of Dallas in treating some of the most challenging cases in the world.

Dr. King was also chosen by his peers for the 8th consecutive year as a Top Dentist in the Pediatric Specialty. He enjoys wake surfing, lift foiling, snow skiing, and spending time and seeking new adventures with his three children.

Dr. Natasha Diaz, DMD

Board Certified Pediatric Dentist

When Dr. Diaz visited her pediatric dentist as a young child in Puerto Rico, she decided that one day she too would help patients fall in love with taking care of their teeth. She has continued to pursue this passion and is thrilled to share it with our community.

Before moving back to Atlanta, Dr. Diaz practiced pediatric dentistry in New York City for several years. There, she collaborated with some of the nation’s most renowned pediatric dentists and gained valuable experiences that allow her to practice at the highest level.

Her goal is to make your child’s visit comfortable, relaxing, and fun. She is fully trained in completing dental treatment under oral conscious sedation and in-office general anesthesia. By focusing on growth/development along with the overall health of a child’s mouth, she is able to help guide patients through the many changes they face as they mature.

Dr. Diaz loves volunteering her time to help children keep their smiles healthy and bright. She has traveled to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Mexico where she provided dental care to underserved local pediatric populations. She also enjoys visiting local classrooms and community events to show kids that the dentist can be informative and fun!

Outside of the office, Dr. Diaz enjoys spending time in the sun and exploring new cuisines with her husband, Dr. Grant Burgdorf, who is an endodontist in the Atlanta area. She is fluent in Spanish, loves salsa dancing, and is an avid home baker. She even made a 3-tier wedding cake! You may see her running around town in her University of Georgia gear (Go Dawgs!) as she loves training for marathons. She can’t wait to share her heartfelt belief that amazing dental health begins with a smile.
