Dental Ethics & Legal Issues
This program will provide a virtual option due to COVID-19 restrictions for public gatherings. We are offering an online option that meets the requirements for ethics and legal content for dental professionals.
This continuing education program will explore the ethical dilemmas faced by dental practitioners and the values involved in understanding and deliberating these dilemmas. Specifically, the core values of trust, responsibility and service will be discussed within a pluralistic framework derived from real-world case examples. Indiana statutes and Indiana administrative rules governing the licensure and practice of dentists and dental hygienists will also be presented.
