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. It is her legacy that fuels the three pillars of the project: networking, innovation and giving back.
