Who We Are

We are a group of women from all over the country who are here in Detroit, both short and long term, who share the common bond of being married to doctors, dentists, and those still in medical or dental training. We relate to, support, pray for, love, and encourage one another on this ever-changing journey of the educational and professional process, while spurring one another on in our personal relationships with Jesus Christ.

Women in medical and dental marriages can struggle with resentment, exhaustion, depression, loneliness, and isolation; often moving wherever their husband’s career takes them. There is a common bond between the wives of medical and dental spouses, and something special about the support that we can offer one another.

Together, we hope to grow in our walk with the Lord and apply the Bible to our lives, while cultivating and developing relationships with each other and supporting one another as we journey through life.

Side by Side is a national, non-denominational, Bible-based organization that welcomes ALL medical and dental wives, regardless of religious background or denomination, and ministers to women through Bible study, friendship, and prayer.  Founded in 1988 in Rochester, MN, there are currently over 100 chapters across the country and worldwide. You can find more information about Side by Side here! We work in partnership with the Christian Medical and Dental Association (CMDA).

We warmly welcome all.
