What does the future hold for women in dentistry?

What’s the current state of women in dentistry and what can The Lucy Hobbs Project do going forward to continue to help?

A quartet of groundbreaking women discuss the state of women in our profession – and what the future likely holds with Incisal Edge dental lifestyle magazine. Who better to spark the conversation than Julie Radzyminski, Director of the Lucy Hobbs Project and Benco Dental Vice President of Business Innovation.

Hear from four Lucy Hobbs Award winners – those who best embody the spirit of Hobbs herself, who in 1866 became the first American woman to earn a dental degree:

  • Dr. Lynda Dean-Duru, pediatric dentist in Ashburn, Virginia; winner of the 2013 Clinical Expertise Award,
  • Dr. Maria C. Maranga, endodontist in Aquebogue, New York; winner of the 2014 Mentor Award,
  • Dr. Mary Hartigan, periodontist in Jacksonville, Florida; winner of the 2014 Industry Icon Award,
  • Dr. Terryl Propper, endodontist in Nashville, Tennessee; winner of the 2014 Woman to Watch Award.
