What Our Patients Say

“At my first experience at the Penn Dental Medicine clinic, they were on time, personable, and exceptionally thorough. The medical history they took was the most thorough I ever had at a dental visit. They were patient and willing to answer any questions. I was assigned a dentist (student) who was friendly and concerned about all my worries. If the rest of the procedures go this well, I will feel that I have made a particularly good choice.”

– John

“I couldn’t have been more impressed with the quality of care and knowledge of the student dentist who I saw. She put me at ease and made me feel comfortable with the procedures being performed at every step of my care. I usually am nervous about going to the dentist, but am actually looking forward to my next appointment.”

Penn Dental Medicine Provides Compassionate Care to the LGBTQ+ community

The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) population has long dealt with disparities in health care. In fact, according to a panel discussion sponsored by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health regarding LGBTQ challenges in health care, one-sixth of LGBTQ adults have experienced discrimination in a health care setting. Additionally, one-fifth have avoided medical care out of fear of discrimination.  To better serve patients who identify as LGBTQ, dentists—now more than ever—must take action to help better understand and serve the specific and unique needs of the LGBTQ community. This means ensuring LGBTQ patients receive accessible, quality dental care and services. Penn Dental Medicine is committed to furthering progress in educating the current and next generation of dental specialists on creating positive change in these areas and others. To help showcase how Penn is meeting the needs of LGBTQ dental patients, we sat down with Dr. Oswaldo Nieves, instructor for the Division of Restorative Dentistry for Penn Dental Medicine. Dr. Nieves highlights Penn’s ongoing efforts to further education in the unique needs of LGBTQ dental patients. He also shares how his own experience has helped him provide valuable insight into propelling advocacy and eliminating health disparities within the LGBTQ community.
