We create opportunities for women in dentistry
The opportunities for women to combine a career in implantology with family and personal interests are limited. Dr Laurence Adriaens is a dentist who has achieved both. Having grown up in Belgium, she qualified as a dentist and completed postgraduate studies in periodontics and implantology at the University of Bern in Switzerland. Today, she and her husband run a private practice in Mallorca and have used Straumann implants exclusively for nine years. Devoted to giving her patients the best possible care, she has a passion for deepening and sharing her knowledge, which is why she agreed to become the Director of ITI study clubs in Palma de Mallorca. “Straumann is always finding solutions with new technologies, new products and excellent education – which is hard to find as a professional.” Dr Adriaens was an enthusiastic participant at Straumann’s Women in Dentistry workshop in 2016, one of several initiatives to create opportunities for this group of professionals who will be the major providers of dental care in the future.
