There are certain health treatments that come with inherent connotations. Weight issues are associated with overeating, glasses suggest the wearer is nerdy and poor oral hygiene can lead to assumptions about class.
While none of these assumptions are grounded in truth, they persist nonetheless. Essentially, people can act cruelly and without thought for the feelings of others. It is up to health professionals to provide representation and shatter unhealthy preconceptions.
Unfortunately, many prejudiced views stem from a grain of truth. An unhealthy diet will lead to weight problems. Kids who are less focused on image are less reluctant to wear glasses. Those who do not receive regular dental checkups and education will have more oral health problems.
These stereotypes are unhealthy and need to change. Only health providers and educators can promote and enable such change. When it comes to dental care services, Mint Dental in Mississippi believes in representation for all.
At Mint Dental, we understand that every patient is different. However, the challenges that you face when it comes to diet and oral health are not unique. We can create a checkup and treatment plan to address your specific needs.
Education is a key component of keeping teeth and gums healthy. If you have dental phobias or other reasons for not attending regular checkups, we are here to help. Every patient type is represented in our ethos of inclusion, so book your first appointment today.
Dentistry should be accessible to patients from all walks of life. If you have felt devalued by a previous or current dentist, we want to change that experience. At our Mississippi offices, you will find a warm and welcoming environment where all your concerns are addressed.
