Updated to reflect the current ethical climate, this e-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. 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. This resource 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.
"Ethical Questions in Dentistry provides a sound theoretical approach to help sensitize the health professional to the important role of ethics in the dental health field. The text discusses practical issues in ethical reasoning pertaining to dental-related problem solving. This second edition includes an entirely new section about the development of professions and how to understand their structure and function in today's society. It makes frequent reference to dentistry, presenting the traditional, ideal perspective of the profession, as well as views from its critics."
