The Dental Hygiene Code of Ethics

In my practice as a dental hygienist, I affirm my personal and professional commitment to improve the oral health of the public, to advance the art and science of dental hygiene, and to promote high standards of quality care. I pledge continually to improve my professional knowledge and skills, to render a full measure of service to each patient entrusted to my care, and to uphold the highest
standards of professional competence and personal conduct in the interest of the dental hygiene profession and the public it serves.
