David W Chambers
The American College of Dentists is embarking on a multiyear project to improve ethics in dentistry. Early indications are that the focus will be on actual moral behavior rather than theory, that we will include organizations as ethical units, and that we will focus on building moral leadership. There is little evidence that the "telling individuals how to behave" approach to ethics is having the hoped-for effect. As a profession, dentistry is based on shared trust. The public level of trust in practitioners is acceptable, but could be improved, and will need to be strengthened to reduce the risk of increasing regulation...

Ronald S Brown, Michael Mashni
This paper discusses ethical dimensions related to the formal recognition of emerging dental specialties. It explores several issues related to the potential emergence of several new dental specialty areas. There are good reasons that dentistry should open the door to these new specialties, and patients would benefit. The ethical considerations for and against formal acceptance are examined.

Dental boards are agents of the state, sworn to protect the public. They combine the skills of professional training with responsibility to ensure that patients receive safe and effective care. They can play a vital role in ensuring that the profession does not invite more regulation by working to maintain the public's trust. Two cases are presented illustrating that one's perspective can cloud the sense of what is right and that it is wrong to pass ethical responsibilities on to others.

The central point in the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the Federal Trade Commission's action against the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners was that they acted without proper supervision from the State of North Carolina in curbing commercial activity: issuing cease and desist orders to teeth-whitening businesses, for example. It appears unlikely that the law of the land will allow professions to enforce and may substantially limit a profession's voice in defining nearby commercial activity. The line between professional services and commercial ones is not clear...

The contract between the public and the professions is between two parties; so it is reasonable to expect that there might be at least two perspectives when a ruling is given regarding the interpretation of the contract. The Citizen Advocacy Center recently convened a conference to look at the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the functioning of the North Carolina Dental Board in balancing protection of the public with availability of oral health services. New questions are being asked.

On February 25, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court rendered a six-to-three opinion in favor of the Federal Trade Commission in their dispute with the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners concerning teeth-whitening services provided by nondentists. That decision was the culmination of almost nine years of arguments and allegations that began with a disagreement regarding the definition of the practice of dentistry. The ethical aspect of this dispute resides in the one's perspective regarding the motivation behind the actions taken in the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners...

The social contract is an implicit agreement between parts of society and society as a whole. Since the Middle Ages, the learned professions, recently including dentistry, have had a covenantal relationship with the public based on trust, exchanging monopoly privileges for benefiting the public good. Unlike commercial trade in commodities, professional relationships are grounded in ensuring an adequate level of oral health to all. A second contract is emerging where dentists relate to society as business operators, exchanging commodity services for a price...

The most common approach to ethics in dentistry and bioethics generally is through principles. To be effective, principles must be interpreted in particular situations, and the skill of interpretation requires many years of practice with feedback. The opinions of 91 dentists and 54 patients regarding multiple potential actions and justifications for these actions were gathered for eight dental ethics cases. The summary responses of dentists and patients have been integrated as feedback in an online ethics education exercise that individual dentists can use (see www...
