Where can you see a dental set that cleaned the teeth of royalty, or a massive dental cabinet built specifically for the Centennial Exhibit of 1876? At the National Dental Museum on the grounds of the University of Maryland, Baltimore.

Reflecting on the Lucy Hobbs Project Annual Celebration

On June 5th and 6th I had the pleasure to attend The Lucy Hobbs Project Celebration in Orlando, Florida. The opportunity came to me because my friend and co-worker, Ashley Kapuschinsky had a great idea that was chosen from all entries. She chose me to accompany her to this event. Since I started working for Benco in November of 2013, I have heard a great deal about Lucy Hobbs and The Lucy Hobbs Project that Benco has started. From the beginning I thought it was a great initiative. Typically when you hear of a dentist, people will think of a male. However, there are very many female dentists.

Thanks to the opportunity to attend The Lucy Hobbs Project Celebration, I was able to meet and mingle with various dentists. This included the award winners that were being honored. All the women who were honored at this celebration were amazing women that have done so much for their community and the female dentists in the country. It was interesting to see dentists, men and women combined, interact and share their viewpoints on topics. Many times they would have similar or even different viewpoints but found a common ground. When the award winners were sharing their stories, it was inspiring to hear what they were able to accomplish in their lives and trials that they overcame to become the strong and determined women they are now. Working in customer service with Benco, I have had a partial opportunity to speak with members of a dental office and the doctors. However, with attending this event I was able to meet face-to-face individuals from offices I have dealt with or have not had the pleasure of speaking to as of yet. It was a great concept to be able to put a face with names that you hear about. I felt welcomed by all attendees.
