The dental profession holds a special position of trust within society. As a consequence, society affords the profession certain privileges that are not available to members of the public-at-large. In return, the profession makes a commitment to society that its members will adhere to high ethical standards of conduct. In this course, attendees will discuss:

  • The ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct
  • The evolution of the ethical rhetoric of dentistry
  • Concepts of patient autonomy, nonmaleficence, beneficence, justice and veracity
  • Central values in dental practice
