Summarized by: Alexander McGuiness

While as little as 20 years ago female dentists were somewhat unique, last year almost a third of all dentists were women, and by 2037 46% of dentists are expected to be female. While female dentists steadily make their way to 50% representation, the percentage of female leaders in organized dentistry is disproportionately low. Currently, there are 13 women serving as president-elect of their respective state dental associations. This is a significant increase from the lone female president-elect of 2009. The best way to encourage women to take leadership roles is often, quite simply, by asking. The humblest of beginnings can produce great leaders, and we all need to do our part to celebrate diversity in our profession
