Trust is the belief that someone is reliable, good, honest and effective. This definition couldn’t be more true, that when speaking with a health professional. When speaking to a health professional you need to trust him/her; if you are unable to trust this professional, then would you allow the health professional treat you? The American Dental Association (ADA) is America’s leading advocate for oral health. The ADA is the nation's largest dental association, representing more than 157,000 dentist members. Since their beginnings, the ADA has grown to become the leading source of oral health related information for dentists and their patients and thanks to the ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct the association has been able to gain your trust.
ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct
Being a dentist involves a commitment to society and all the ADA members have accepted to adhere to high ethical standards of conduct. These standards are embodied in the ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct. The ADA Code has three main components: the Principles of Ethics, the Code of Professional Conduct and the Advisory Opinions.
The Principles of Ethics
This section of the ADA Code involves the aspirational goals of the profession, this section is important as it provides guidance and offer justification for the Code of Professional Conduct and the Advisory Opinions. There are five fundamental principles that form the foundation of the ADA Code: patient autonomy, non-maleficence, beneficence, justice and veracity.
The principles stated in this section may at times need to be balanced against each other, but, otherwise, they are the profession's firm guideposts.
The Code of Professional Conduct
This section of the ADA Code involves an expression of specific types of conduct that are either required or prohibited, the Code of Professional Conduct is a product of the ADA's legislative system. The Code of Professional Conduct is binding on members of the ADA, and violations may result in disciplinary action.
The Advisory Opinions
This section of the ADA Code are the interpretations that apply the Code of Professional Conduct to specific fact situations. These have been adopted by the ADA’s Council on Ethics, Bylaws and Judicial Affairs to provide guidance to the membership on how the Council might interpret the Code of Professional Conduct in a disciplinary proceeding.
