Ethical Decision Making in Dentistry

by Suzanne Stucki-McCormick

Ethical principles are essential in the practice of dentistry, and Ethical Decisions in Dentistry takes the reader from ethics in dental education to creating ethical protocols and public policy. This concise volume covers ethics issues in the education of dentists, in licensure and licensing examinations, in solo and group private practice, and in esthetic dentistry. It also supplies a chapter presenting the patient’s perspective on medical ethics, one on informed consent, and another on the process of developing the guidelines for ethical dental decision-making. The topics of billing, office management, and advertising are covered, and the book closes with a chapter entitled “Ethics in Transition,” which charts transitions in a dentists’ practice and career as well as transitions in how ethical principles themselves are viewed. Ethical Decisions in Dentistry is a valuable text for teaching ethics in dental schools, but also serves as a refresher course for practicing dentists at any stage of their professional lives.
