Recognize outstanding female dental professionals in our midst

Dental Products ReportDental Products Report-2012-09-01
Issue 9

The September issue of Dental Products Report is easily my favorite issue of the year. We spend so much time year-round dedicated to our coverage of products that the opportunity to step back and profile people who create, use, sell and market those products is a real treat. Add to that the focus on outstanding women in these roles, and I can barely contain my excitement.

The September issue of Dental Products Report is easily my favorite issue of the year. We spend so much time year-round dedicated to our coverage of products that the opportunity to step back and profile people who create, use, sell and market those products is a real treat. Add to that the focus on outstanding women in these roles, and I can barely contain my excitement.

There are so many ways that women are redefining traditional patterns and practices. These simple profiles are just the beginning of helping people throughout the industry - male and female - see the good that can come from a distinctively female take on everything from practice management, to clinical care, education, engineering, and running a company.

The diversity among our winners - in terms of professional calling and passions - is a reminder that our industry is a beautifully complex group of individuals who are creatively looking for ways to make a difference in their small corners of the profession. I hope you come away as inspired as I am.

I am especially thankful to this year’s sponsor for the Top 25 Women in Dentistry section, Patterson Dental. The willingness to demonstrate leadership in recognizing the contributions of this year’s winners is just one reason, among many, to applaud the people at Patterson.

 

Last month...

I’ve received several emails and phone calls from readers about the inappropriate nature of a recent advertisement in DPR. Many said it was disrespectful toward women in the profession. I completely agree.

We do our best to work with companies to facilitate best practices in advertising, but the final say is not always mine.
I recommend that any time you see an ad that doesn’t sit right with you, feel free to reach out to the company directly. Nothing makes a manufacturer take notice more than a potential customer making his or her voice heard.
