The Faculty of Dentistry strives to be a welcoming and friendly community!

Our efforts toward Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) are meant to enhance and connect our Faculty of Dentistry community with information and initiatives related to anti-racism, anti-homophobia and anti-discrimination within the Faculty of Dentistry and across UBC.

The Faculty of Dentistry hopes to improve our culture, overcome past failures, and fight racism and discrimination on a broad basis. We are committed to broadening diversity and inclusion within our various programs and our faculty, staff and student cohorts.

The DEI Office liaises with program directors and students to develop and improve curriculum content related to DEI, ensures Dentistry is in alignment with UBC initiatives and develops surveys for faculty, staff and students to have input into our culture, priorities and programming.
