Same-Sex Couples With Kids Find Comfort In Oklahoma Dentist
Gay and lesbian couples in Oklahoma have been raving about the quality treatment they have received from a pediatric dentist in OKC. Reflections dental has welcomed many members of the LGBT community in with open arms and has provided non-discriminatory pediatric dentistry to their adopted children. It’s difficult in some communities to find professional service providers that don’t discriminate when two men walk in the door with their child and need pediatric attention. We have heard feedback from members of our community about the warm welcome they have received from the staff at Reflections Dental, and the quality of treatment they have received has been a reflection of the amazing people working there. It is our belief that doctors and Reflections are THE BEST pediatric dentist OKC has to offer!
Adopted children that have been parented by gay and lesbian couples have enough troubles in school and dealing with the feedback they receive from their peers, it’s refreshing to see true professionals embrace these children regardless of their parent’s sex. There have been many stories that have surfaced through our Sneerzine blog over the years about certain professional practitioners rejecting patients due to the parental arrangement. This, of course, is saddening for everyone involved and should not be tolerated. That being said, it is times like these that make us want to blog about great people, doing great things, in great communities. When professionals do their job and are not concerned about the personal lives of their patient’s everyone wins. This of course doe does not apply to child protective services or any other professional service that is tasked with monitoring the well being of a child, adopted or not.
We are excited to also make mention of other professional services outside of Oklahoma that have embraced our often discriminated communities. There is a story of an audiologist in Seattle, Washington that took in a same-sex couple that had been denied service to their 3-year-old child because of the doctor’s extreme Christian stance on homosexuality. This was a heartwarming story for members of the LGBT community that was shocked by the practitioner’s actions and discriminatory remarks. Hundreds of people gathered in protest in downtown Seattle to push back against the opposing views of people in positions of power. An audiologist should not be concerned about the marriage of two men as much as he should have been concerned about the hearing loss of the 3-year-old boy. It just goes to show har far we have come within our communities, yet how far we have to go to get to a place where we as humans are excepted for who we are, not by our relationships with other adults.
