Carestream Dental continues its initiative to elevate women in oral healthcare.

To continue to promote and support gender equality inside of Carestream Dental and throughout the dental industry, Carestream Dental is the latest sponsor of Leading Ladies in Dentistry (LLD). This international organization aims to help young women in oral healthcare become leaders of their field.

As its newest partner, Carestream Dental will share exclusive educational resources, webinars, access to mentors and general guidance with LLD members. Additionally, Shaveta Chalana, PhD, marketing specialist in Carestream Dental’s APAC region, and Andreea Nita, regional product manager for intraoral imaging and service in Carestream Dental’s EMEA region, have both been named Leading Ladies in Dentistry and have been invited to join the international board for clinical research and dental education.

“As one of the only women leading a dental technology company, diversity and gender equality are issues I’m passionate about,” Lisa Ashby, CEO at Carestream Dental, said. “When I speak with women in the field, a common theme is how they wished they’d had other women role models to look to when they were getting started. Now, Carestream Dental and Leading Ladies in Dentistry can connect more women in the oral healthcare field with mentors and guidance, unlike in the past.”
