American Association of Women Dentists
AAWD is the leading resource for advancing, connecting and enriching the lives of women dentists. We offer a variety of programs and services that benefit the special needs of the busy woman dentist. Although the gender composition of U.S. dentists has changed dramatically in the last twenty years, there’s not much else that has. Dental equipment is still designed for male bodies, journal ads are still aimed to a male audience and local dental meetings are still very much male territory. The American Association of Women Dentists, established in 1921, is the only dues-based national organization representing the interests of women dentists across the country. AAWD benefits its members from dental school through retirement.
