Join Dr. Inglehart for Orthodontists and Their Patients from LGBTQ+ Backgrounds: Status quo Considerations and Future Needs (1.0 CE).
In 2016, a national survey of dental school and dental hygiene program
administrators reported that a large percentage of programs did not
educate their students about treating patients from LGBTQ+ backgrounds.
Recent surveys also showed that practitioners did not consider that they
were well educated about these topics.
Yet surveys indicate that a significant percentages of practitioners
report that they have patients who self identify as Lesbian, Gay or
Bisexual (LGB) or as transgender (T) as well as patients on puberty
blockers or receiving gender affirming care. These findings raise the
question what dental care providers and their staff should know about
the oral health, risk factors for poor oral health and oral healthcare
utilization of patients from LGBTQ+ backgrounds to become well equipped
to provide optimal care for these patients. This informative session is
being provided to assist orthodontists and staff to help provide better
overall care for all patients.
Participants will be able to define the terms LGBTQ+
Learn what puberty blockers are, when they are indicated and long term consequences
Be able to identify risk factors for poor oral health of patients who self identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community
What accommodations are needed to provide a welcoming environment for all patients and parents
