Course Description

I See Your True Colors Shining Through – Cultural Competence for the Dental Professional
In a country of ever-increasing diversity, clinicians must be equipped to interact with clients of varied cultural backgrounds. Those delivering effective, empathetic health care must be cognizant of the values, beliefs and attitudes toward health that people from various populations hold. The culturally competent oral health provider recognizes that cultural diversity means far more than just ethnicity and reaching all groups with various barriers can be challenging. This session will present cultural diversity issues, how dental professionals can become more culturally competent in the delivery of patient care and ways to use this knowledge for addressing access to care barriers among the population groups discussed. Different models of cultural competency will be explained, and a variety of diverse population beliefs and ideals will be presented, emphasizing communication and incorporation of respect for diverse beliefs. Oral health issues of various cultures will be presented and discussed.


The educational teaching methodology used in this course is a lecture presented via live webinar in concert with an accompanying PowerPoint presentation. Both the live lecture and the PowerPoint presentation incorporate a variety of audio and visual cues to enhance audience members’ understanding and retention of key concepts. In addition, audience participation will be encouraged and facilitated by group discussions as well as question and answer periods provided for at the conclusion of each section of the live webinar."
