The American Dental Association is an organization that helps your dentist be the best dentist possible. In fact, there are five promises that the ADA encourages your dentist to make, and those promises are:
No. 1: Respect a patient’s wants and needs
Your dentist respects your privacy and ensures confidentiality. Your dentist will put you first and will involve you in every treatment decision.
No. 2: Do no harm
It’s your dentist’s duty to make sure you are safe and healthy. This means that he works hard to keep up to date on the latest technology and treatment available in the world today. This also means that your dentist will refer you to another doctor or surgeon when necessary.
No. 3: Do good
Your dentist will provide high-quality treatment all while considering your values, desires, and needs. This also means that your dentist will keep your best interest at heart and will discuss treatment options with you so you can both decide what’s best.
No. 4: Be fair
Your dentist will always treat every patient equally. This means he does not discriminate and will always provide top-notch dental care without prejudice.
No. 5: Be truthful
Your dentist will constantly be honest and truthful. This will help you form a relationship with him that is based on trust and understanding.
Because of these promises, your dentist provides the best care possible.
