Where did it all begin?

Over the past five years, The Lucy Hobbs Project® has been introduced to some incredible women in dentistry. These women have persevered throughout their careers and have set the benchmark high in the  profession, similar to Dr. Lucy Hobbs Taylor, the first American woman to earn a doctorate in dentistry.

Today, Benco Dental invites nominations for the 2018 Lucy Hobbs Project Awards, which will honor six exemplary women in the dental community.
Powered by Benco Dental, The Lucy Hobbs Project® empowers women in dentistry to drive change and deliver success through networking, innovation and giving back. Named after Dr. Hobbs, this project aims to bring women together from all facets of the dental profession – dentists, dental assistants, hygienists, receptionists, sales representatives and others.

The project is free to join and offers networking opportunities, educational programs and charitable events.
