Implicit Bias Training (Part I)


This webinar introduces participants to the concept of implicit biases by demonstrating their power in daily life and dentistry-related situations. It explores how implicit biases can change over time and in which circumstances we are more likely to use them.

Learning objectives:

  • Define the term implicit bias and how its existence can be demonstrated.
  • Identify how implicit biases matter in personal and dentistry related settings.
  • Describe in which circumstances we are most likely to utilize implicit biases.

The state of Michigan issued a requirement for all health care providers in Michigan to attend continuing education courses addressing the topic of implicit bias. This course counts toward that requirement.

Co-sponsored by MDA Insurance and MDA Services.
