Sex and gender will have an impact on women’s oral health throughout their lifespan. Not only are there specific health issues that are more common in women than men, but the way women present and seek and utilize care may differ from men with the same diagnoses. This presentation will highlight some of these diseases and differences at various stages of life.

History of Brauman-Bell Alpha Omega Lectureship
On September 27, 1992, the Dallas alumni chapter of Alpha Omega International Fraternity presented a $10,000 contribution from Alfred W. Brauman to Baylor College of Dentistry, establishing the Brauman-Bell Alpha Omega Lectureship. The lectureship was named in honor of BCD alumni Dr. Welden E. Bell and Dr. Alfred W. Brauman. The lectureship was endowed in 1997 through two generous gifts to Baylor College of Dentistry from Dr. Brauman’s daughter, Tricia Michaelson of Dallas.
Dr. Bell earned his degree in 1934 and was a faculty member in oral and maxillofacial surgery and a continuing education lecturer until his death in 1990. He was a visiting lecturer to 24 dental schools throughout the United States and Canada and the author of nine textbooks on orofacial pain and TMD.
Dr. Brauman, a 1938 graduate, was instrumental in establishing the Dallas chapter of Alpha Omega fraternity while in dental school. A practicing dentist in Dallas for more than 50 years and a commercial real estate developer, Dr. Brauman was an active community volunteer and philanthropist until his death in 1996. Drs. Bell and Brauman maintained a friendship for 52 years.
