The Aspen Group launches initiative to help women establish dental careers

The Aspen Group partnered with Women Employed and Midwestern Career College to launch an initiative to help low-income women join the dental workforce.

The three organizations are aiming to foster economic empowerment and create jobs in dentistry for women in Chicago, according to a March 7 news release. 

Through the partnership, individuals will participate in a program to prepare them to work as dental assistants in Chicago, Evergreen Park and Oak Lawn, Ill. 

Women Employed will provide need-based financial assistance for program tuition and other ancillary expenses. 

The Aspen Group's Oral Care Center also serves as a dental assisting externship site for participants in MCC's dental assisting programs to provide on-site training for clinical experience, the release said.
