The Power of Us WELCOME TO THE MORNING GLORY WOMEN DENTISTS NETWORK OF NEW JERSEY
Dear Lady Doctor,
education on the professional level, feel safe to discuss issues that may be professional or personal in nature, and be able to provide support for one another. I believe it is important to diversify your experience and broaden your horizon in order to be a better practitioner and, more importantly, a better human being. The mission of Morning Glory Women Dentists Network of New Jersey is to provide education and social networking opportunities to practicing women dentists in the state of New Jersey, and it’s also to provide support unique to women practitioners on all levels. This network is named after a very common flower vine, morning glory. Growing up in Taipei, Taiwan, I remember walking to school and seeing these purple and pink flower vines draped over the brick walls down both sides of the sidewalk. We called them “trumpet flowers.”These flowers bloom well, survive with very little water, and spread like crazy. They may wither or close up briefly, but these blossoms revive again, stronger than ever. The morning glory perfectly symbolizes the resilient and strong women of this network holding hands together. No matter what temporary downtime we face, we get up again and restart — we triumph! In the next few months, I will be hosting a launch event for the network. I invite you to join me at this special event where you can meet with other women professionals in our field. I’d like us to get acquainted and have fun! For those who have been to my events in the past, you know they’re a blast! This network will focus on continuing education events and social networking for practicing women dentists in the state of New Jersey. Stay relaxed and open-minded. There will not be any hard sells. This is not a solicitation letter; this is a call to action for women professionals to join forces. If you want to keep in touch and receive periodic updates about the network, please email MorningGloryWomen@gmail.com. Please use this opportunity to introduce yourself if we haven’t met in person yet. I greatly look forward to getting to know all the women of the Morning Glory Women Dentists Network of New Jersey and building something great together.
I hope you are reading this at the best of times. I am excited to announce the launch of Morning Glory Women Dentists Network of New Jersey, a nonprofit organization. Please allow me to introduce myself: I am a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon practicing in Monroe Township of Middlesex County. I have been practicing for 15 years and have hosted several continuing education courses for local dentists and dental auxiliary personnel. This has given me the opportunity to cross paths with many wonderful women dentists, including associates or practice owners in my area. As a female practitioner and a mother of two, I have faced many challenges over the years in terms of work-life balance. There were times I felt alone and needed advice from someone in a similar position. A lack of resources or my own pride always stood in the way. I certainly think you can relate to these difficult moments. Over the past year, I began to envision gathering women dentists together and creating an organization that can offer the kind of support we all wished we had at one point in time. Morning Glory Women Dentists Network of New Jersey is a local forum where women can receive
Have a glorious day,
