Detroit Mercy Dental and Benco Dental Present: Women in Dentistry - The Lucy Hobbs Project YOU Event

Thursday, December 1, 2022

6:30 PM-9:30 PM

About the Lucy Hobbs Project

The Lucy Hobbs Project is named to honor Dr. Lucy Hobbs Taylor, the first American woman to earn a degree in dentistry. Born in 1833, Lucy was refused admission to dental school because of her gender. But she persevered, learning dentistry as an apprentice, graduating from the Ohio College of Dental Surgery, and becoming the first licensed female dentist in 1866. Her leadership, courage and success paved the way for other women. Her legacy fuels the project's three pillars: networking, innovation and giving back.



Join us for an engaging evening of mentorship with fellow Women in Dentistry, including Detroit Mercy Dental students, alumni, and industry professionals.

Motivational speaker and bestselling author, Scott Burrows, will captivate the audience with his eloquent storytelling. Scott uses the principles of vision, mindset and grit to inspire others to drive results and stand up to any challenge.


All Detroit Mercy Dental alumni, students, and dental professionals are welcome to attend this no-charge event. We expect to fill, so reserve your spot today!
