Dr. Chimmiri with Meriden Dental Group. He is very calm, reassuring, and non-judgmental. I had extreme anxiety about dental work and was embarrassed about the condition of my teeth. Not once has he or the staff made me feel bad or belittle me. I recommend him to everyone when I can because he rebuilt my confidence in going to the dentist's office.

Transgendered individuals have to go through mental therapy before medically transitioning to their preferred gender. They don't just wake up one day and decide to take hormones and become the opposite gender likes it's a fad. It's an identity they've dwelled on for many years. I agree with you that everyone can benefit from therapy. LGBTQIA+ have a high rate of suicide and mental health issues. They often run into obstacles obtaining care, which is what makes HHC's initiative so important.
