Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Societal norms are changing and the diversity of patients and dental professionals is rapidly expanding.

BCDA has curated the following resources that will direct you to various online content offering assistance or information related to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in organized dentistry.
