The once male-dominated dentistry industry is quickly shifting towards a female-dominated industry. Here are the numbers backing up this eventuality.
- 60% of practicing dentists under the age of 44 are women
- Percentage of females enrolling in US dental schools is nearly 50/50
According to The Dental Geek, the majority of practicing dentists will be women in 2020, just three years away.
And while most of these new entrants into dental practices are in group dental practices, eventually they will migrate over to the solo practices as well.
