It’s a Woman Thing



LEADING Yorkshire orthodontist, Dr Catherine McCanny Hendron has teamed up with two colleagues and a famous legal eagle to raise funds to support young girls rescued from trafficking and domestic violence in Nepal.

Dr McCanny will join fellow practitioners Martina Hodgson and Andrea Ubhi for a motivational day for fellow female orthodontists keen to build successful practices, with Marilyn Stowe offering legal and business advice.

Multi award winning Catherine was keen to get involved in the project having built her own successful practice, but understanding the barriers that women can often face.   As the mother of two daughters and the founder of St Michael’s Orthodontic Practice, Wakefield, which is an all female team she was also determined to improve the lives of forgotten young girls.

“When we all met, we wanted to share our own experiences and expertise for the generation of female orthodontists coming through,” explained Catherine.  “Women have a different perspective on orthodontics and now equal men in the number practising.  Yet we have our own unique challenges,” she added.

“It’s a Woman Thing’ is an informal day at Hazelwood Castle on March 15, that will deliver real insight for orthodontists of the future, help them launch their own practices and help support a very worthwhile cause.”
