How to Create an Equitable and Affirming Dental Practice: A Guide for Dentists – 2 CE
LGBTQ individuals have always been stigmatized and discriminated against on many fronts, including access to affirming and culturally competent health care. While LGBTQ individuals need access to nonjudgmental, affirming, competent dental services just like everyone else, they often face barriers ranging from outright hostility to a lack of providers who are knowledgeable regarding the unique health needs of the LGBTQ community. This course discusses strategies on how to become an LGBTQ ally and create a nurturing, equitable, and affirming dental space.
This self-directed course is equivalent to two (2) credit hours and can be completed using a computer, laptop, or mobile device.
At the conclusion of this continuing education activity, the participant will be able to:
- Define key concepts and terminology related to the LGBTQ community.
- Identify common barriers LGBTQ individuals face when trying to access dental care.
- Recall LGBTQ health disparities that may affect oral and dental health.
- Recognize common oral health conditions affecting LGBTQ individuals.
- Recall the strategies to use when trying to create an equitable and affirming environment.
