A letter to patients and community partners from Dr. Deborah Brown, My Community Dental Centers CEO
To our valued patients and community partners,
The events over the past few weeks have become a catalyst for change in our state and country. Systemic racism and injustice of any kind weakens the fabric of our society. Our strength lies in the diversity that has been our foundation. People are experiencing a flood of different emotions and it is our hope that these emotions will be channeled to create positive change, resulting in a society where everyone can have life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Every day, across our state, our team is working to support the communities where we deliver care. Our centers are a part of the neighborhoods and local communities. We are committed to being a different kind of dental provider- one that sincerely champions our Mission and Values rooted in providing a dental home that is welcoming to all.
We want everyone to know that we stand with all communities of color in solidarity as we work to address the fears and the racial disparities that exist. My Community Dental Centers is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
With respect and gratitude,
