Ethics in Dental Medicine
The American College of Dentists offers an ethics foundational course for free to registered members.
The Mission of the Section is to support professional ethics in dentistry as the foundation of oral health care. The members of the Section are dedicated to the ongoing study of ethical issues, ethics education, and the development of the profession to promote integrity and ethical practice in service of patients, community, and society.
The Society has been established to foster an international dialogue on the values guiding the practice of oral health care. This dialogue is intended to be multidisciplinary, involving the disciplines of dentistry and auxiliary oral health sciences on the one hand, and those of ethics and law on the other, as well as related disciplines such as philosophy, the humanities and the social sciences. The Society is open to all interested in partaking in this dialogue.
IMDEC’s primary objective in conducting its reviews is to help protect the rights, dignity and welfare of the individuals who volunteer to participate in research activities. The achievement of this objective is both the cornerstone of good clinical practice and the best possible service an IRB can offer the initiators of human subject research.
