About Us

The Mississippi Association of Women Dentists is affiliated with the American Association of Women Dentists, an organization that has helped promote and foster the careers and interests of women in the field of dentistry for over 90 years.

The Mississippi Chapter was formed in 2007, and currently has over 130 member dentists. Dr. Mindy Austin of Tupelo was the chapter's first president; our current president is Dr. Jennifer Ray.

We are actively seeking members to help us grow the organization into a powerful voice in our industry. The women of MAWD have proven their commitment to positive change and considerate philanthropy, and we need your help to continue. Please consider donating to our endowment fund, and if you are a woman dentist, MAWD needs your support to continue building our wonderful organization.
