About Guiding Leaders

Guiding Leaders is an exciting professional development program that empowers women in dentistry to advance to new levels of leadership. The program provides a dynamic environment where women can learn, grow and make an impact in dentistry together. It is a unique opportunity for women to cultivate their leadership skills as they build long-lasting relationships on their journey toward becoming voices of influence.
