    Description"Ethics and Law for the Dental Team" is designed to help all dental professionals develop their understanding of the ethical principles and professional guidelines essential in the practice of dentistry. This new title from "PasTest" is an accessible text written for the whole dental team, and reflects the General Dental Council guidelines. It features a wide range of 'real life', practical case studies of ethical dilemmas faced in dental practice. The cases cover the issues of inter alia consent, confidentiality, negligence, whistle-blowing and responsibilities to patients as well as to other members of the dental team and to society. Key notes, tips on good ethical practice and an extensive resources section make this a truly essential title.
