How are You Breaking the Bias? Challenges Faced by Women in Dentistry

Every year on the 8th of March, International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrates women’s achievements around the world, raises awareness against bias, and promotes action for equality.

To commemorate IWD 2022, Dr. Lynn Tomkins, general dentist and President-Elect of the Canadian Dental Association, discusses the challenges female dental practitioners face today, and highlights some the key issues that need to be addressed to create a work culture where women’s careers can thrive.

Soon to become the 2nd female President in the history of the CDA, Dr. Tomkins also shares her own journey in organized dentistry and offers advice to other women in dentistry who aspire to enhance their dental practise and advance in leadership roles in the profession.
