Rounding out our celebration of #HispanicHeritageMonth we've got another spotlight 🌟 🥼Meet Dr. Daniela Gurpegui Abud, Assistant Clinical Practice Leader at Touro Dental Health and Assistant Professor of Dental Medicine🥼 Being a #healthcare professional should be about treating ALL, not only those who can afford it. Helping the community has been a big part of my journey as a Dentist, and as a #Spaniard, being able to communicate in Spanish has greatly helped in treating the large Hispanic population in NY. Language is our main source of communication, and being able to do so in one’s mother tongue, especially with those Spanish speaking only, is key in building a reassuring and bidirectional trustworthy relationship with our patients. And what is most important, patients really do appreciate being understood and being able to fully understand us. I am a proud Spaniard and #Hispanic, and I hope to continue help increase awareness on the importance of oral health among patients, and promote easier access to treatment. ----- En #Espanol ⏬ Ser un profesional de la salud debería consistir en tratar a TODO paciente, no solo aquellos que puedan permitírselo, y ayudar a la comunidad ha sido gran parte de mi trayectoria profesional como Dentista. El hecho de ser Española y poder comunicarme en Español con mis pacientes ha sido de gran ayuda en el trato de la gran población Hispana de Nueva York. El lenguaje hablado es la principal fuente de comunicación, y poder hacerlo en nuestra lengua materna, especialmente con aquellos pacientes que solo hablan español, es clave para construir una relación de confianza bidireccional con nuestros pacientes. Y lo que es más importante, los pacientes agradecen sinceramente poder ser comprendidos y ser capaces de entendernos. Orgullosa de ser Española, espero seguir ayudando a concienciar a la población de la importancia de la salud dental y asimismo facilitar el acceso al tratamiento dental. . . . #tourocollegeofdentalmedicine #dentalschool #dentists #dentistry #dentistsofinstagram #dentistsofinsta #futuredds #teethpeople #dds #lohud #westchesterliving #picoftheday #oralhealth #Westchester #smile
