Every health care practitioner from Hippocrates to our own day has had to deal with questions of ethics in the effort to serve patients properly and well. The dental professional is no different. For nearly a decade, it has had sound ethical reflection on its side in the form of Dental Ethics at Chairside.
In issues ranging from ordinary chairside decision making to HIV/AIDS and ethical business practices, the first edition of this book has guided thousands of dentists, dental hygienists, students, and other oral health care practitioners to an understanding of the essential practice of ethics.
Now a revised, updated, and expanded edition of Dental Ethics at Chairside responds to the challenges of oral health care in the new century with chapters on managed care, confidentiality and electronic record-keeping, among other important topics.
“All dental students should read this book. It is one of the most complete books on the subject of dental ethics.” — Doody’s Review Service
“A ‘must-read and must-have’ book for every oral health professional….remains the ‘gold standard’ on the subject.” — Bruce S. Graham, dean, College of Dentistry, University of Illinois at Chicago
