ADA Membership, Code Of Ethics Important To Most Patients

The ADA News (7/16, Burger) reports that unlike other dentists, American Dental Association member dentists have a Code of Ethics. A new survey commissioned by the Association’s Council on Ethics, Bylaws and Judicial Affairs showed that “nearly 70 percent of patients are more likely to choose an ADA member dentist knowing that those dentists follow a Code of Ethics.” In addition, the survey showed that “nearly 75 percent of patients said that simply knowing that a dentist was a member of the ADA would influence whom they selected as a dentist.”
