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.
