Equity & Inclusion



Our residency program is committed to providing an inclusive, diverse, supportive, and respectful learning environment that values all individuals through our aims of equity and anti-racism actions. This has included the development of our Advocacy and Ethics Program.  This program aims to address the essential question of “how can pediatric dentistry residents address injustices in health in our community?”. Residents develop partnerships with community-based organizations to create initiatives to address injustices in health and advocate for our community. This program spans the two years of the residency program and helps develop and practice skills related to advocacy, inclusion, and diversity. Residents advocate at the local and community level and also have the opportunity to attend the AAPD’s Advocacy Day and advocate at the national-level. Residents also work closely with our social workers during this program.
