The ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Conduct
The dental profession holds a special position of trust within society. As a consequence, society affords the profession certain privileges that are not available to members of the public-at-large. In return, the profession makes a commitment to society that its members will adhere to high ethical standards of conduct.
Dentists who are members of the ADA and DC Dental Society have pledged to uphold the ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Conduct. Look for the ADA logo at the front desk of your dentist’s office, or ask if your dentist is a member of the ADA.
