The most recent volume of the Journal of "Pediatric Dentistry" Vol. 28, No. 5, September/October 2006 had a study of pediatric dentistry program applicants and pediatric dentistry residents. It found that the quality of applicants is increasing and that the proportion of female pediatric dental residents is rising as well. In fact, of pediatric dentistry applicants (those that have graduated dental school and are applying to a residency), almost 60% are female!
