dc.description.abstract This study was designed to assess ethics instruction in sixteen dental schools from the midwestern region of the United States. It is imperative that dental students develop a system through instruction for dealing with moral dilemmas that confront them in real life clinical situations. Upon completion of dental school, students must have the ability to embark on their careers and successfully handle challenges that arise. Ethics is required for an accreditation for all dental schools, and this study shows a wide range of approaches to ethics instruction throughout the sixteen schools. Along with a brief history of ethics and similar surveys from the past, this study compares ethics courses and components in the curricula of the various schools to the Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct of the American Dental Association.
