The professions of dentistry and dental hygiene each have a discipline-specific code of ethics. These codes describe the goals, aspirations and subsequent ethical standards of each group. A major purpose of a professional code of ethics is to bind the members of the group together, define expected standards of behavior and as a tool for self-regulation of its members.
