By JOY STILLEY AP Newsfeatures Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Petite and perky, blonde and beautiful, fragile and feminine are adjectives not generally applied to the family dentist. But they accurately describe Dr. Sheva Rapoport, president-elect of the American Association of Women Dentists. And add another one— enthusiastic, especially about dentistry as a profession for women. "It doesn't take muscles to be a dentist," says Dr. Rapoport, who is 5 feet 4 and weighs 115 pounds. "I remember back in my dental school days when my patient would be a big, strapping football star and the audience would move in closer and wait to see me struggle to extract a tooth. What fun it was to show them that it only requires a little technique." The Allentown, Pa., dentist, wife of a lawyer and mother of two young children, is dismayed by the small percentage of women dentists in this country—only about 1,300 out of the more than 100,000 practicing today. "We come out to about 1.3 per cent, compared to about 14 per cent women physicians," she points out. The proportion is declining, she adds, particularly in her own specialty of periodontics, or treatment of the gums and bony structure which supports the teeth. But she sees a reversal of the trend in the higher incidence of women starting dental school this year. "We've been doing more to show women that dentistry is available as a profession. We're getting away from the notion that men can be dentists, women dental hygienists. What is important is your motivation, not your sex. You either make the effort and develop techniques to get you there or you won't get there. If you have the motivation and the qualifications there's no reason you can't succeed." These qualifications include liking to work with your hands, she explains, and here she thinks a woman has an advantage over a man. "I sometimes wonder how a man ever gets his finger in some patients'mouths," she said, exhibiting her own small hands. "A woman's temperament is better, too. I think we can sympathize more and we have more patience. "You have to like people,"' she Continues. 'Hf you cant: communicate, forget it. You deal with a different person in the chair every half hour and you have to change personalities with every patient who comes into the room. One is all business and wants me to get in and get the work done, and the next one is petrified and I have to reassure him. At the end of the day I'm more tired from 'psychologizing' than from any of the physical aspects of the work." Dr. Rapoport is concerned with educating people on the importance of dental care. On behalf of the Lehigh County Dental Society she talks at schools and before various groups, utilizing films and pamphlets supplied by Crest Professional Services. "Today we're taking the dentist out of the repairman's corner and putting him into the prevention field, where he really belongs," says Dr. Rapoport, who has been in practice for 10 years.

Though she was one of two women in a class of 120 at Temple University School of Dental Medicine, she recalls that her fellow students "as a whole treated us more than equal. They didn't put us on pedestals, didn't carry our heavy instrument cases 0 would have like it) but were very kind of us." Dr. Rapoport runs a home- office combination, and if the housekeeper or sitter fails to show up there's no problem. The children — Jed, 6, and Dana, 4 — know she is handy and they can come down to the office if they need her. She adjusts the schedule of her full- time practice to give her more time with the family, taking two days off and working two nights instead, when her husband takes over.
