In honor of Pride Month, dentists seeking to learn how to be a stronger LGBTQ+ ally in their practice are invited to a virtual open forum organized by the ADA’s New Dentist Committee and Diversity and Inclusion Committee.

The forum, Amplifying Voices: An Open Forum on LGBTQ+ Community and the Dental Profession, is scheduled for June 23 at 7 p.m. Central time.

“As health care and dentistry continue to make progress, the only way we can have true equality is through the allyship of all of our colleagues and those in leadership positions,” said Alex Barrera, D.D.S., who is one of the event’s panelists. Dr. Barrera helped found the Houston Equality Dental Network, an organized dentistry group specifically for LGBTQ+ dental professionals and patients.
