Top 10 Ethical Dilemmas Facing Today’s Dental Assistant This is a Core CE seminar

July 30, 2020
12:00 am – 12:00 am
  • Natalie Kaweckyj, BA, LDA, RF, CDA, CDPMA, COA

The duties of the dental assistant are among the most comprehensive and varied in the dental office. The dental assistant performs many tasks requiring both interpersonal and technical skills. Although state regulations vary, responsibilities to the patients we serve do not. Ethical dilemmas are nothing more than complex situations that involve two or more choices, and selecting either of the choices results in some sort of conflict or transgression.

Learning Objectives:
1) Describe the evolution of healthcare ethics, including events that have affected development of the principles of ethics that guide the dental profession.
2) Understand how yesterday’s headlines have shaped how we do things today.
3) Identify current and emerging ethical challenges facing dental professionals.
