The North Carolina Dental Society endorses the powerful statements of the National Dental Association
and the American Dental Association
as they denounce acts of racism and violence. We stand strongly united with Old North State Dental Society
and will work together on this issue to help combat the acts of racism in our state. We echo the ADA's sentiment that "This is the moment to unravel from whatever personal biases we may harbor. To become allies. To have the hard conversations. To listen to voices that have long gone unheard. To speak up for those who have been disenfranchised. To commit to empathy and understanding. To be forces for change. To be agents of harmony. To call out wrong when we see it. And to do what’s right when we can."
