Dentist Issues Call To Action To Help “Achieve A United Future”

“Together we can achieve a united future.”

Dentist Issues Call To Action To Help “Achieve A United Future”

In an op-ed in the New Dentist News (7/7), Dr. Zaneta Hamlin, a general dentist in Norfolk, Virginia, and president-elect of the Tidewater Dental Association, shares her experience being a Black dentist. She writes, “Despite my degrees, certifications and awards I have been pulled over by a police officer, with my children in the car, for no reason other than to be asked whose car I am driving.” She adds, “Earlier in my career a lot of people, including fellow dentists, assumed I was not the clinician.” She calls on her colleagues to “acknowledge that there is a problem,” stop making assumptions, and “welcome more diverse clinicians to the table.” In addition, she says that “if your state dental association does not have a diversity and inclusion committee then be the change you want to see.” Dr. Hamlin adds, “For my Black and Brown colleagues you must take a seat at the table.” She concludes, “Together we can achieve a united future.”
