Lucy Hobbs Project


What we did at our 1st Annual Lucy Hobbs Project 2019

Our community has come together and donated over $5,000 in prizes to raffle off for the giveback portion of our event benefiting The Refuge DMST.

You shopped. You bought raffle tickets… 100’s of raffle tickets! You supported The Refuge for DMST and we raised a total of $7,625.00 from raffle tickets and vendor sponsorships.
It didn’t end there! We have a dentist that is planning to start a scholarship for any girl who has interest in the dental field! Gloria Chan (keynote speaker) has offered to teach wellness classes to the girls at the ranch! Her husband who is an Optometrist plans to provide eye exams! Dr. Briggs is providing orthodontics for any girl in need. Cecily Kertson with Straumann donated their horse Newton to the equine therapy center at The Refuge! The outpour has been just amazing! Thank you Thank You Thank You!

Why Lucy Hobbs? Austin Oral Surgery and Benco want to empower all women in dentistry in all areas of life, personally, professionally and we can’t forget to have some fun! We are so excited to plan this event for 2020 and will be posting details as we finalize plans so please check back to see what is new. The links below have pictures from our 1st Lucy Hobbs Project in Austin. Please reach out if you would like to learn more or have any questions.

What to expect at the 2nd Annual AOS Lucy Hobbs Project event

Mind+Body+Soul. Achieve Your Personal Best Balance, At Home & Work.

Celebrate Wellness Together With Your Entire Team.
Our 2020 event is the perfect for the entire team. Our thought leaders, panelists and networking event will focus on more than individual wellness. We’ll impart strategies for incorporating wellness concepts throughout your practice to build a happier, more productive and engaged team.

Panel Discussions:
– How to Make YOU A Priority
Running a thriving, rewarding practice takes a team and means everyone making themselves a priority. You can’t fully show up for your team as an effective and inspiring leader if you’re not in peak mental, emotional and physical health. Our panel of experts includes women who live your challenges everyday: successful practitioners, specialists, hygienists, office managers and more. Because it’s not about living up to unrealistic goals, it’s about becoming the best YOU.

– Inventive Solutions for Feeding Yourself & Family.
Busy lives demand energy. But chances are, you’re not only fueling yourself, but family too. When the pressure’s on, it’s easy to compromise for the sake of convenience. Our cooking & nutrition panel will help you live better through realistic tricks for incorporating healthy meals and snacks throughout the day… even when time is tight. From recipe planning to meal prep, you’ll take away valuable tips you can use as soon as you get home.

Keynote Speakers

Discover Optimum Body Health.
The physical demands of dentistry can be punishing – and the effects only worsen as we age. But you can take steps now to improve your posture and ergonomics, whether you’re a dentist constantly hunched over patients or an office manager too busy to leave your desk. Our speaker will open your eyes to the latest techniques for being more mindful of your body and including more healthy motion in your day.
More to come…

Networking Time

Women based businesses where you will have time to shop and network with other dental professionals.

Giveback Opportunities

The giveback portion of our event will be raising money and awareness about sex trafficking and all proceeds will benefit The Refuge Ranch. The Refuge is a home with a full circle of care for 48 girls who have been rescued from sex trafficking located in Central Texas.
