Empowering Women 2021-2022: Gracing Our Faces With Healthy Smiles
Empowering Women 2021-2022: Gracing Our Faces With Healthy Smiles

STRENGTHENING WOMEN'S ORAL & GENERAL HEALTH
THROUGH PROJECTS BY DENTAL HYGIENISTS

"The empowered woman is powerful beyond measure and beautiful beyond description."

Social changes and awareness in the past few years have uncovered a host of vulnerabilities among the female population. We have been exposed to the delicate, frail, and desperate women among us. Some of these women endure both physical and psychological damage. Their oral health is affected from lack of self-care or minimal access to professional care.

Partners in Social Responsibility Program

Empowering women by creating awareness of oral health is a vital and worthwhile mission. A healthy smile generates higher self-esteem and confidence. And since women are caregivers to both their offspring and aging parents, they influence their entire families. Helping women to achieve better oral health will hopefully have a domino effect for a brighter, healthier future for all.

The IFDH is encouraging its members to develop projects that empower women through better oral health.

Are your members participating in a program focused on women?

  • If so, please let us know.
  • If not, we invite you to develop a project to share with colleagues.
    • It can be a small project in a community, or a nation-wide initiative, as long as it addresses the theme of Empowering Women. We will highlight 3 projects at a special session in Dublin, Ireland at the ISDH Symposium, August 10-13, 2022.

We've Got Tips & Tools to Help You Get Started

The Social Responsibility Committee welcomes your involvement. Please contact the Committee Chair Sharon Freidman, to let us know you are participating. Throughout the remainder of 2021 and into 2022, we will be in contact to support our registered members with tips and tools to Empower the Women in our World.
