We are tida, a training provider using the inclusive diversity approach throughout our educational videos and workshops. The inclusive diversity approach will help you and your team discover new ways to develop more conscious and caring attitudes that will benefit the workplace and our communities. Through a series of online courses, we offer everyone the chance to self-develop and progress towards fairer thought patterns and actions, making positive adjustments to help create a more equal, diverse and inclusive society free from discrimination and racism. Our mission is to enable and assist everyone, including workplaces, the public sector, children and young people, to enhance their personal, social and emotional development by providing a framework that educates and promotes: equality, diversity, inclusion and empowerment. We want to remove the tick box and tokenistic approach to multiculturism, diversity and discrimination by creating a fully inclusive society where everyone feels comfortable in their skin. We also want to see multicultural and diversity practices embedded into workplaces, communities and classrooms. We believe that we must create a society that embraces change and difference whilst giving everyone equal opportunities. Here at Tida, we have developed a culture with values that champion compassion and understanding to ensure equality, diversity and inclusion are always at our business’s heart. Kindness and compassion are at the core of everything that we do.
The importance of Bias training
Dental professionals have an important and influential role within our communities. Therefore, you have a responsibility to check any hidden bias that may affect patients or other team members because your bias could impact someone else's life.
Your responsibilities as a dental professional
From the minute a patient walks through the practice door, you have a responsibility to treat every patient with dignity and respect.
How you treat and engage with patients can either have positive or negative effects on:
Yours and the patient’s day ahead – we all know what it is like to be mistreated or met with irritation by someone in a customer or patient-facing role. It can be really upsetting for both parties involved.
A patients overall mental health – you don’t know what that patient is going through on that particular day. How you treat them could have a tangible impact on their mental well-being.
The reputation of the practice.
How you engage and react with patients will determine the type of response you will get back from them.
