At Plaza Midwood Dentistry, we take great pride in providing a Safe Space for the LGBTQ+ community offering comprehensive, comfortable dental care in a relaxing environment.
Michael C. Farmer, DMD, FICD (he/him) is a member of the Charlotte Transgender Healthcare Group and has participated in Gender 101 classes not only for the team at Plaza Midwood Dentistry, but also for other dental offices in the area. He has also spoken at the American Dental Association’s (ADA) National Conference (SmileCon) in both 2019 and 2021 regarding transgender and LGBTQ+ care issues in the dental field including recommendations on how to move forward with training for dental offices and staff across the country and in dental schools. This helped lead to Dr. Anne Koch, a transgender endodontist, being one of the featured speakers at the ADA’s conference in 2021 on transgender dental care. Furthermore, Dr. Farmer was a member of the American Dental Associations Institute for Diversity in Leadership from 2018-2019 and is on the Board of Directors for the Charlotte Dental Society and is an Adjunct Faculty member at the University of North Carolina Adams School of Dentistry.
