Are Saying

There is a difference between a male and female dentist. There is an even greater difference as a Black female dentist. There are unique challenges, and it’s helpful to have others who understand your challenges.

There was a missing piece of ‘How do I get there? Where is the bridge?' This organization has just met me where I was, met me on my level. For so long I just needed that door unlocked, and now that door is open and I’m all in.

Our Founder​

Sharel S. Sly, DDS

In 2017 Dr. Sly created an organization, Sistahs in Dentistry, that is to serve as a sisterhood for black women who practice as double minorities in dentistry. It is a community where women support one another through some of the challenges of dentistry and life. The group is a network of over 3200 members and has been a useful resource for practicing dentists as well as dental students soon to embark upon the wonderful field of dentistry.

For Dr. Sly, it was important that students had the guidance before leaving school so that they are much better prepared to practice dentistry. The organization ABWD’s Sistahs in Dentistry is evolving and is a part of the parent organization, started by Dr. Sly, the Association of Black Women Dentists (ABWD). Dr. Sly is happy to see black female dentists connecting via social meetups, continuing education events, charitable events, mentorship programs, national conferences and networking.
