Technical and ethical decisions are inseparably interwoven in dentistry, and that is why the high quality of dental care requires professionals who are aware of the ethical standards governing health care activity. Within the course, students will acquire knowledge about the most fundamental norms of modern medical ethics, and about how these norms are implemented in dental practice. In addition, during the course, students will gain practically applicable knowledge about those sociological, communicational and psychological aspects of physician-patient relationship, which have ethical relevance in dental care.
