Women in Dentistry Symposium Empowers, Educates and Encourages

by Women in Dentistry Symposium


The profession of dentistry continues to evolve, and so does the gender balance that makes up the dentist population. Starting off as a male-dominated profession, dentistry is witnessing a surge in women’s access to and graduation from dental schools. Women are also opting to specialize and enter organized dentistry and private practices in larger numbers.

Women in Dentistry: Work. Life. Balance is dedicated to bringing together women in the dental field to network, share and learn from each other’s unique perspectives. Through regular events and initiatives we strive to mentor and empower one another by sharing experiences, knowledge and expertise limited not only to the clinical aspect of dentistry, but also to the business management aspect, while relating this to balance with a successful social and family life.

The upcoming 8th Annual Women in Dentistry Symposium, held on May 15, 2018, will be presented by some of the brightest female specialists in dentistry on a variety of relevant topics. There is so much to know in dentistry and it is difficult to stay well informed on new developments. The goal of this symposium is to provide an update on current concepts in dentistry, network with other female dental professionals and exchange success stories.  The speakers this year are Drs. Effie Habsha, Lesley David, Sally Safa and Ms. Elyte Barzilay. Event details can be found online at www.womensdentistry.com
