Updated to reflect the current ethical climate, this book presents clinical practice cases in which arguments can be made for differing courses of action or in which the obligations of the professional are in conflict; the reader is asked to determine the ethically correct response to such conflicts. In this revised edition, detailed background material has been added to many of the cases to foster more well-reasoned ethical decision making. In addition, cases on sexual harassment and advertising have been introduced, and those on financial and HIV issues have been updated. An entirely new chapter on the structure and obligations of the various professions has been added. This book will continue to be of value to members of the dental profession and is now better suited to the needs of ethics courses for dental students.

Review:

This is a very good overview of ethics in dentistry, with a strong emphasis of the philosophical basis for ethical decision making and practical examples for doing so. Because it makes a somewhat esoteric issue informative and interesting, it is recommended for all practitioners at whatever stage in clinical practice they might be. --Michael R. Breault, DDS, - The New York State Dental Journal, January 2005

This book is essential reading for all dentists who practice dentistry. Although not related directly to technical aspects of clinical dentistry, it enlightens the reader on what thinking must accompany the rendering of appropriate dental care, namely the issues relating to practising dentistry ethically... --Rollin Matsui, BSc, DDS, - Alpha Omega Book Review

"...The 88 cases discussed throw up a lot of questions but this is deliberately intended to make the reader think very carefully about the consequences of their actions and inactions. Dentistry is not just about repairing the contents of the human mouth, it is also about dealing with human beings who demand and are entitled to the respect afforded by such essentials as informed consent and autonomous choice. Although the cases involve a degree of philosophical, sometimes theoretical, debate in terms of Hippocratic responsibility on the part of the dentist to the patient, there are also many instances of substantial pragmatic concern to all dentists, such as the cases of HIV-infected patients. A fascinating and mind-expanding read."

"...The book remains a most accessible contribution to the professional literature on dental ethics...


Each case study is followed by concise discussion and analysis of the ethical considerations involved and, where appropriate, guidance is offered. Often though, the discussion highlights the key questions requiring the practitioner's judgment. This is valuable, since ultimately each practitioner is responsible for ensuring that their own value system and practice methodologies reflect an ethical perspective which marks them as "professional". A book which sought to deliver pre-packaged answers to all ethical dilemmas would miss the point. Thankfully, this book doesn't." --Garry Pearson, ADAVB Newsletter, March 2005
