Webster's Dictionary defines ethics as "the discipline of dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation". In the context of endodontic practice, ethical endodontic decision making may take into account a number of questions, including but not limited to: 1. Is the proposed treatment in the best interests of the patient? 2. Am I maximizing proven endodontic principles to achieve the most favorable outcome? 3. Am I providing treatment for a patient I would not perform for myself? 4. Am I using techniques and/or materials that have yet to be proven safe and effective?
Presenters with expertise and knowledge in the area of ethical health care practice have been carefully chosen to present relevant material that will address whether our moral duties and obligations to our patients are being met to the best of our abilities. It is the sincere hope of the AAE planning committee that attendees of presentations in the clinical ethical dilemmas track will find the material engaging, thought-provoking and meaningful.
