Revisiting Professional Promises 2006 – Ethics of Access to Care
ADEA Annual Session

Summary: In 2006 a meeting was held to address Professional Promises: Hopes Gaps and Access to Oral Health Care. Key stakeholders were invited that represented education, public health, health and dental industry, organized dentistry and dental hygiene and ethics-based organizations. Ten years later it is important to revisit the themes discussed in 2006 and determine where we are as a profession. The panelists presented information based on three themes: evidence-based information outlining what the data says concerning access to care, professional and ethical issues related to social justice and oral health care including inadequate financial resources, and proposed solutions including direct access to care.

Panelists included: Pamela Zarkowski, Professor, University of Detroit Mercy, Kamyar Nasseh, Health Economist at the American Dental Association, Ralph Fuccilo, Senior Advisor, DentaQuest, and Frank Catalanotto, Professor, Department of community Dentistry and Behavioral Science at the University of Florida.
