BRAVO-R., Lidia  y  LAGOS-TISSIE, Denisse. New Code of Professional Ethics for Dentist in Chile: Contribution for a Modern Doctor-Patient Relationship. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2017, vol.11, n.4, pp.419-424. ISSN 0718-381X.

The objective of this study was to analyze the new Code of Ethics recently presented by the Chilean Colegio de Cirujano Dentistas, in light of the results obtained in the revision of the Codes of other countries, focusing on the doctor-patient relationship. Search and obtain from public websites, the Codes of Ethics from the European Union, the United States, Australia and some Latin American countries. Identification, classification, selection and analysis of the most relevant topics. Regarding the dentist-patient relationship, the selected topics were: Informed consent, confidentiality and professional secrecy, discrimination in care, emergency care, application of up-to-date quality standards and specialization. We observed important differences in regards to the depth in which each topic is covered, and the scope of the established norms. We believe that these differences may arise as a result, on the one hand, of the sociocultural diversity of the analyzed countries and, on the other hand, of the different legislations that these countries may have in place on those topics.

Palabras clave : professional ethics codes; doctorpatient relationship; informed consent.
