Research output: Book/ReportBookAcademic


Ethics is an integral part of the health professions. Even if dentists rarely deal with popular bioethical topics like trade in organs or assisted suicide, they face ethical challenges and must make ethical decisions in their everyday practice. Many of these challenges are resolved by experience. However, sometimes experience is not enough, and the dentist may need practical tools to assist with ethical decision-making.

This Manual prepares dental practitioners to confront important ethical dilemmas and uphold and exceptional standard of care throughout their careers. It is user-friendly and relevant to a wide and international audience, including experienced clinicians, first-year dental students, dental office managers, or policymakers.
