BRITEZ DISTEFANO, SC. Knowledge, attitudes and practices about the Code of Odontologic Ethics in odontologists of the National Police in 2009. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2011, vol.9, n.2, pp.26-34. ISSN 1812-9528.

ABSTRACT The concept of ethics is based on rules and principles governing the behavior of the individual consciously and freely. Odontology faces dilemmas because of the odontologist-patient interactions, access to dental health, and increased number of professionals which should be addressed on the basis of ethical practices inherent to the professional practice. The objective was to describe the level of knowledge, attitudes and practices of the Code of Odontologic Ethics for which a questionnaire was applied to 102 odontologists of the National Police in 2009 who met the inclusion criteria, without limit of age and agreed to participate. An observational descriptive cross-sectional study was performed. Forty eight percent of the evaluated people had sufficient knowledge of the Code of Odontological Ethics, more than 80% showed positive attitude and 94% implemented practice that fits with the standards established in the Code, which is consistent with the values that guide professionals and the rational procedure as a human being.

Palabras clave : Code of Ethics - Ethics - Ethical dilemma - Bioethics - Clinical Practice.
