Diversity; equity; inclusion.
We hear these words a lot, especially this time of year.
But at Biteline, these aren’t just buzzwords – they’re standards by which we operate our business, manage our team, and support our users.
As a business, we are committed to serving dental professionals and offices in healthy and valuable, honest and mindful ways. We see it as a privilege and a personal responsibility to do the work we do, and we act in ways that honor a standard of excellence – we support choice, diversity, equity, and are inclusive across gender, race, sexual orientation, as well as cultural and spiritual practices.
As a team, we exemplify diversity. We are a small but mighty team, made of members of all different types of communities – across gender, race, and sexual orientation. Because of this, we hope to better serve our users by building and operating Biteline with the input of diverse mindsets and ideas; we want to advocate for and empower our professionals and our offices in the most supportive way possible. That means celebrating who they are as people, and we are a proud champion of people. And as we do to keep the body healthy, we work from the inside out.
As part of the dental industry, we hope to set a precedent. The patient population is diverse, but the dental workforce still has a ways to go. We want to provide a platform for professionals of all ages, races, genders, and sexual orientations, and we encourage offices to hire accordingly. Inclusivity is key; everyone deserves access to dental care.
But we strive for more than diversity, equity, and inclusion; we strive for belonging. Belonging for our team, our professionals, our practices. We want everyone to feel safe and welcome when working with us and in a professional dental setting; this is important work for professionals and offices, not only for the health of the workplace, but for the health of the patient – because it helps to create a safer environment, to serve them better and to ultimately encourage a stronger, more consistent oral health journey.
And as these values are the heart of Biteline, we know this is something we have to keep healthy; it is an ongoing commitment and challenge, as we are constantly learning and looking to improve. We encourage others to do the same everywhere – especially within this industry.
Because everyone should have equal opportunities for optimal health.
Because everyone deserves to smile.
Because everyone belongs at Biteline.
