Two groups, one with ties to Nashville, team up to help women entrepreneurs in dentistry

The Dental Innovation Alliance and Women in DSO are collaborating to equip women with the knowledge, skills, and connections needed to succeed in dental entrepreneurship and venture capital investing.

An organization with one of its three offices in Nashville has teamed up with a group focused on the promotion of women in the dental services sector to collectively advance more women as entrepreneurs and investors in the dental industry.

The two groups are the Dental Innovation Alliance (DIA), which has a Music City location, and Women in DSO (WinDSO). Both are dedicated to driving innovation and excellence in dentistry, recognizing the importance of supporting and empowering women in leadership roles. Through their partnership, both DIA and WinDSO will leverage their respective expertise and resources to provide women with the tools, mentorship, and networking opportunities needed to thrive as entrepreneurs and investors.

The collaboration will involve various initiatives, including educational workshops, networking events, and mentorship programs designed to equip women with the knowledge, skills, and connections needed to succeed in dental entrepreneurship and venture capital investing. For starters, DIA is launching an “Entrepreneurship Corner,” a resource for women leaders who want to explore entrepreneurship. It begins with a breakout session, “A Step by Step Breakdown of the Dental Entrepreneurship Process,” at Women in DSO’s upcoming “Empower and Grow conference March 6-8 in Las Vegas.

DIA is a close group of dental industry executives that funds, advises, and propels the success of early-stage companies building the future of dentistry through technology. Its investor base includes executives and experts from some of the largest and most innovative dental support organizations and other dental businesses.

Created in 2019 by Dr. Aman Kaur, WinDSO is an organization committed to serve as a platform to advance and promote bright women leaders across the dental services space, specifically those currently leading, managing, directing, supporting, and developing the industry’s most progressive and high-performing dental practice groups.
