In this course, the intersection of law and ethics will be explored. Dental providers must be aware of the legal and ethical principles that guide patient care, professional interactions, and record-keeping. Core ethical principles will be explored along critical legal concepts, including contracts, intentional and unintentional torts, informed consent, and informed refusal.

Learning objectives:

  • Describe five key ethical principles and the guidance they provide to dental providers.
  • Describe fundamental legal principles important to dental providers.
  • Emphasize the importance of record keeping.
  • Present a framework to resolve frequently encountered ethical dilemmas.

This course is designed for dentists, hygienists, and assistants.
