A Woman Dentist Can Be Two Things, Who And What She Wants

A Community






The vision behind developing Women in Dentistry was to create a supportive, collaborative community centered around the needs, strengths, and challenges that women dentists face. It includes a professional learning component as well as social opportunities.

Women in Dentistry is all about bringing dentists together, so it is open to all women dentists in the Arizona Dental Association.
