As the first woman lecturer in prosthetic dentistry at the Dental Institute of the University of Utrecht, Jans Gretha Schuiringa (1887-1975) had to win a position in a rapidly developing field. She undeniably made a significant contribution to the development of dental education and more specifically to the field of dental surgical prosthetics. Her dedication to her patients led her to strive continuously for better methods of treatment. From time to time, however, her militant character provoked resistance from her colleagues, curators of the medical faculty and students. After dentistry had obtained the ius promovendi in 1947, she was passed over for a professorship and felt, as a result, that she was not properly acknowledged. Archival research shows that her personality played a major role in her rejection.
