Abstract
There has been a dramatic increase in the number of females entering the orthodontic profession over the past few decades, however, there is very little published literature on female orthodontists and work-family balance. A qualitative study, using the framework of phenomenology, was used to analyze data obtained from semi-structured telephone interviews of a purposive sample of Canadian female orthodontists. Results conveyed that the issue of work-family balance is of paramount importance to the women interviewed. They defined balance in terms of having success, and satisfaction, in both their family life and professional life. However, they recognized the requirement of compromising and prioritizing. The participants discussed the specific challenges of work-family balance in orthodontic practice, and outlined adaptations to the maternal role and the professional role, to help achieve balance. Finally, they identified areas where they experienced the most role conflict.
