After a much anticipated wait, due to the global pandemic crisis, the website of the AIO Italian Dental Association’s 11th International Congress “FOCUS ON THE GENDER SHIFT IN DENTISTRY: A NEW PERSPECTIVE OR A FUTURE CHALLENGE?” is officially open!
Everyone is invited to participate from June 10-12, 2021, in the charming seaside town of Chia on the island paradise of Sardegna, in Italy, where the stage will be set to explore one of the most important changes within the profession today: the gender shift in dentistry.
Since the times of Lucy Beaman Hobbs Taylor, the first woman in history to graduate from a recognized dental school 154 years ago, the number of women in dentistry has greatly increased. In Europe, one in every two professors in dental schools are women and in many countries around the world, women now make up the majority of the total number of dental students. Women have also increased their presence in leadership roles earning recognition in the top ranks of dental organizations and associations and for first time in the 717 year history of the Italian university La Sapienza in Rome, a woman dentist, Antonella Polimeni, has taken on the role of chancellor. Women are making enormous strides both inside and outside of dentistry, impacting the profession as never before.
An exceptional congress with an incredibly rich program involving leading women in dentistry awaits you. The following is a summary of the preliminary program:
Thursday, June 10th – two theoretical/hands-on workshops and three hands-on practical workshops will be held.
