Dental Divas Launches To Support Women Dentists Nationwide

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – January 20, 2011– Dental Divas, a leading professional organization designed to support the needs of women dentists, today announced the official launch of Dental Divas Online, an interactive website enabling members to connect with other dentists in their city and nationwide. The goal of Dental Divas is to form an online destination for women dentists to share, network and giveback.

According to trends derived from an ADA study, the dental industry is comprised of 40% women dentists; yet there are very few options in the form of resources, networking and support for the unique challenges that women dentists face.

Dental Divas was formed four years ago by a group of local dentists wanting to help each other and fill in this evident gap. Today, Dental Divas continues to offer women dentists the ability to work together on a local level through events in their cities and on a national level at DentalDivasOnline.com.

"Dental Divas is a great blend of social and professional networking," stated Dr. Dina Giesler, an Atlanta-based General Dentist.

"Dental Divas has been an asset to my professional and personal well-being", commented Dr. Sonia Chopra, a Charlotte-based Endodontist. "Having a local network I can trust is important and the online resources allow me to find information when I don't have time to make a call."

DentalDivasOnline.com provides members an interactive online platform that includes:
