American Dental Association on-demand webinar
This webinar was recorded November 2022.

In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, the ADA and the Society of American Indian Dentists hosted this panel discussion "Amplifying Voices: Decolonizing Dentistry." American Indians and Alaskan Natives (AI/AN), also referred to as Native Americans, currently suffer from the worst oral health outcomes in comparison to any racial or ethnic group within the United States.

The discussion covers:
• Ways to make dentistry more inclusive to indigenous populations (patients and professionals)
• How the infrastructure/profession of dentistry may challenge indigenous cultural values
•Ways indigenous populations celebrate culture in their practice
• Oral health disparities and barriers indigenous people face due to marginalization
• Personal experiences about their indigenous heritage and how it has informed and impacted their careers as dentists
