  • Title: Healthcare Workers as Cosmopolitan

Synopsis:

During the last several decades, the gap between the poor and rich has been wider and deeper, not only in an individual country level, but also among the countries. As dental health care workers, we need to think what can be some possible ways that we can contribute to the world. We should feel responsible to the people living in a place on the other side of the earth, simply because they are our neighbors and we are their neighbors. Every one of us has the right to stay healthy regardless of anything that hinders from accessing to this God given right. This work can be done not only internationally but also locally. More important matter than where we work is our attitude to the work. We should have an understanding that we are doing our work because God called us to do so. This makes us the royal priests who are doing God’s work. Keeping this in mind, shall we broaden our perspectives?
