Dental Ethics at Chairside

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. In issues ranging from ordinary chairside decision making to HIV/AIDS and ethical business practices, the first edition of this book has guided dentists, dental hygienists, students, and other oral health care practitioners to an understanding of the essential practice of ethics. This revised, updated, and expanded edition 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.
