ADA Code in Dentistry

The dental profession holds a special position of trust within society. However, the people afford the profession certain privileges that are not available to everyone on a regular basis. As a result, dentists make a commitment to the people that they will follow high ethical standards of conduct. These are the ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct (ADA Code). Additionally, the ADA Code has three main components:
  • The Principles of Ethics
  • The Code of Professional Conduct
  • The Advisory Opinions
These are all outlined in detail within the course, but are all valuable aspects of the ADA Code for dentistry.

Patient Autonomy

The patient’s rights to confidentiality and self-determination must be respected by the dentist. This principle articulates the idea that healthcare providers should respect patient confidentiality and serve patients in accordance with their preferences while staying within established therapeutic parameters.
