My son has too many teeth

I took my son to the dentist today and they told me he has too many teeth. I don't know why a new dentist had to tell me this when I have been taking him in every 6 months and he is 7. Anyway the dentist said we need to have 2 of them pulled and his permanent teeth that are seen in the xray show he has 2 too many also that will have to be pulled. I am just wondering if he should really have to go through this twice or if we should just wait for the baby teeth to fall out?? Has anyone else had this or know more about it?

My daughter had two adult teeth grow in directly behind instead of underneath. Our dentist said if they didn't fall out in six mo he would need to pull them. They both fell out with in four months. So I'd say wait it out a while. She was six. :).
