Infectious Disease in Dental Practice: Professional Opportunities and Obligations
Neidle, Enid A.
Journal of the American College of Dentists. 1994 Spring; 61(1): 12-17.
This article presents one author's view of the dentist's obligations to patients, to the community, to the profession, and to the principles of ethics in a highly troubling time of serious infectious diseases. It essentially is an optimistic view that, while the epidemic of AIDS will continue and tuberculosis may become a graver problem in certain health care settings, the dental profession possesses the education, ethical insights, and technical training needed to meet with grace and authority the challenges of practice in this era of infectious disease.
