The Ethics of Dentistry

One of the standards of dental ethics is patient self-determination. By providing patients with the opportunity for voluntary, informed consent or refusal, dentists can empower patients to take charge of their treatment choices.

After being in the dental clinic as a pre-doctoral student, my eyes opened to the possibility:

  • What if this informed consent process were made easier – for patients and providers?
  • What if the information weren’t so … dare I say, boring, and possibly even confusing?
  • What if quality of process and experience were both taken into consideration in a re-haul of this tedious routine?

So I took to the Huffington Post with a dental practice management article of a research-base. If informed consent is something that interests you, be sure to FOLLOW THIS LINK and take a look.
