Finding a female dentist to photograph in 1972 was a challenge.  In 1978, only 15.9 percent of first-year dental students were women.  In 2016, there were 196,441 dentists working in dentistry in the U.S. and 29.8% were female. “Our profession, and society, has come a long way,” said Dr. Mary Martin, president of the American Association of Women Dentists. And while challenges remain for women dentists — addressing the lack of representation in leadership roles and education, closing a wage gap — Dr. Seldin and others say the rise in number of women in the profession has brought, and continues to bring, a number of positive changes.
