T K Hasegawa, J V Welie

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


This group dealt with the role of codes through developing a draft of a code that could be used as a framework of common values in an "Alliance of Dental Organizations." Such an alliance might be an umbrella organization of all groups interested in promoting oral health care by advancing ethical discussion. A set of potential core values, based on traditional ethical principles, is presented.
