The Women Dentists Network was founded as an opportunity to support women dentists to follow their passions, overcome challenges and excel at the forefront of all areas in dentistry including clinical practice, specialisation, professional bodies, education, research, industry, government.
Create and foster a professional environment within the dental sector that is fair, equitable and inclusive for all.
To help women dentists overcome their personal and professional challenges by providing a supportive, inclusive network and forum to address issues such as wellbeing, inclusion and career development.
We are a group of female dentists who came together to encourage our colleagues and friends to aspire to be at the forefront of dentistry because we have experienced, first hand, the challenges in developing our careers amidst busy lives, gender biases and multiple demands on our resources.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
How we do it
We are working to collate advice blogs, toolkits, role model stories, mentoring, training and recommendations to enable others to grow and achieve their full potential. If you are a woman who works in the dental sphere, in any role, we hope the site has something for you.
If there’s anything else you’d like us to include, let us know. Perhaps you’d like us to interview you about your experiences as a woman in dentistry? Or maybe you want to say something but remain anonymous?
