Objectives The aim of this study is to examine the condition of women as far as the dental profession is concerned and to evaluate all those oral pathological conditions which may affect in particular the female gender as well as the pertaining treatments. Materials and methods In addition to Authors' experience and contribution, research was carried out in PubMed, Embase and Scopus, in order to collect previous studies. Results and conclusions Professional subject and role of the woman dentist with her specific characteristics toward both patients and her own family were considered. The Authors evaluated the most common pathological conditions of the oral cavity occurring more frequently, or with particular characteristics, especially in adolescent and senile age, although not exclusively affecting the female gender. Specific problems in pregnant and breast-feeding women were thoroughly examined with a focus on effective steps to be taken and the use of drugs. © 2014 EDRA LSWR SpA. Tutti i diritti riservati.
