JUNE 10-12, 2021 – CHIA (Cagliari) – Sardegna, Italy
Dentistry has changed dramatically over the last decades. Aside from new technologies, procedures and materials one of the most important changes we have witnessed is in the gender shift in the profession, where the number of women practicing dentists is steadily increasing and where in many countries women now make up from 50% to 70% of the total number of dental students. Dentistry is well on the way to becoming a female dominated profession.
Nonetheless it’s surprising that the percentage of women lecturers in dentistry remains relatively low. This has led to the creation of numerous groups and organizations focusing primarily on women in dentistry.
The theme of the AIO International Congress, “Focus on the Gender Shift in Dentistry 2021: A New Perspective or a Future Challenge?” will explore this trend. Does there actually exist a difference in perspectives, visions and challenges experienced by men and women in dentistry? How will this inevitable gender shift impact the future of the profession?
The stage will be set for these issues to be addressed from June 10th – 12th, 2021 in one of the most beautiful settings in the Mediterranean, on the enchanting island paradise of Sardegna, Italy, at the Chia Laguna Hotel and Resort, winner of the 2019 World Leading Beach Family Resort at the World Travel Awards.
The AIO is honored to have earned recognition as an international American Dental Association CERP Recognized Provider that provides both ADA members and the international dental community with a mechanism to select quality continuing dental education (CE). The AIO is proud to offer participants of the congress ADA CERP CE credit hours to those making request. Certificates of participation will be available online to all participants following the congress.
