Top 25 Women in Dentistry

March 21, 2012

As the number of women in the industry continues to grow--in the practice, in the lab, in the schools and in the manufacturing sector--Dental Products Report wanted to develop an award that recognizes them for their many contributions. This year, our second soliciting nominations, the publication received more than 300 outstanding submissions among the five categories: dentists, team members, dental lab, research and education, and industry.

As the number of women in the industry continues to grow--in the practice, in the lab, in the schools and in the manufacturing sector--Dental Products Report wanted to develop an award that recognizes them for their many contributions.
