          Course Objectives:

          Cultural diversity pervades civilizations throughout the world. People are still not accepting the concept of diversity. This course is designed to give you an overview and foundation to develop cultural competence in the delivery of dental health care. We live and work among people of different ethnicity, origin, religious and political ideology and sexual orientation. It is vital for dental professionals to think about their behavior and their communication style with regard to their own ideology, beliefs and life experiences. Your life experience plays an important role when interacting with people who are different from you.

          After completing the course the reader will be able to do the following:

          Understand the cultural conflicts and misunderstandings in dental care delivery
