Who We Are
The Lucy Hobbs Project empowers women in dentistry to drive change and deliver success through networking, innovation and giving back.
Our initiative is named The Lucy Hobbs Project to honor Lucy Hobbs, the first woman in dentistry. Born in 1833, Lucy was refused admission to dental school because of her gender. But she persevered, eventually learning dentistry as an apprentice, graduating from the Ohio College of Dental Surgery, and becoming the first licensed female dentist in 1866. Her leadership, courage and success paved the way for other women. Benco Dental is committed to helping others to do the same. We will host networking, innovation and give-back programs, both virtually and in person throughout the country, including a national annual event. Check out our website for more details on an event near you.
The Lucy Hobbs Project is open to women and men dentists, dental assistants, hygienists, office managers, sales representatives and consumers.
Joining our initative is free! Simply click on the membership button and you will be updated on all upcoming programs and events. Hope to see you there!
