For physical comfort reasons, one benefit of having female dentists is that they typically have smaller hands so it’s easier for them to work in the patient’s mouth without causing them much discomfort. Also, women are known to listen better than men, and be more attentive and intuitive towards others, making a patient feel that their problems are being fully heard and understood. Females are also generally seen as more compassionate and nurturing, which might make a patient feel more comfortable, especially if that patient is a child or an elderly individual.
A benefit to having female dentists is that females are more conservative in their approach and in the solutions they offer, according to certain studies. Furthermore, because women are typically gentler than men, a patient who has a fear of the dentist may feel more at ease with a woman dentist. Female dentists have also been known to be better at prevention techniques and provide more at home solutions than male dentists. Some people may prefer a dentist of the same or opposite gender than themselves. Regardless of what gender your dentist happens to be, they will all be skilled enough to treat you appropriately, these are only opinions after all.
