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.
