The Standards of a Dentist Who is a Member of the American Dental Association

Posted .

Did you know that dentists who are members of the American Dental Association work by five standards? Well, it’s true! That way you will have the best and most successful dental experience possible. ADA dentists care for you and your oral health, and they want you to have the beautiful and healthy smile you deserve.

The standards that ADA dentists work and live by include the following:

Respect a patient’s wants and needs
As a patient, you have the right to be included in all of your treatment decisions and you have the right to privacy and confidentiality. This standard ensures that your dentist puts your wants and needs first, as long as they are within the bounds of accepted treatment.

Do no harm
Your dentist will do everything he can to make sure you are safe and healthy. This means that he will do everything he can to give you the top-notch oral health you deserve in a safe and successful way. Another way your dentist will provide safety and health is by keeping up on the latest dental technology and treatment in the world today.

Do good
Your dentist will do his best to provide high-quality and timely treatment all while keeping your needs, desires, and values in mind. This means that your dentist will treat you as an individual and will do whatever is in your best interest, no matter the situation.

Be fair
Your dentist does not discriminate and will provide top-notch dental care without prejudice. Everyone is treated fairly and equally.

Be truthful
The best doctor-patient relationships are based on honesty and trust. Once the patient trusts the dentist, they can both be partners and work toward a top-notch oral health together.
