We investigate the Fock-Darwin states of the massless chiral fermions confined in a graphitic parabolic quantum dot. In light of Klein tunneling, we analyze the condition for confinement of the Dirac fermions in a cylindrically symmetric potential. New features of the energy levels of the Dirac electrons as compared to the conventional electronic systems are discussed. We also evaluate the dipole-allowed transitions in the energy levels of the dots. We propose that in the high magnetic field limit, the band parameters can be accurately determined from the dipole-allowed transitions.
