SYKES, LM  y  POSTMA, TC. On being self-ish, self-less or well-balanced (other-ish), and how this may relate to practicing dentistry. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2022, vol.77, n.6, pp.369-371. ISSN 0375-1562.

It has been said that people are driven by either self-interest or caring for others. In extreme cases, the former selfishly seek self-fulfilment, often at the expense of others, while the latter selflessly and altruistically strive to please others, many times with personal costs. This paper will explore the issues of selfish versus selfless behaviour with regard to the practice of dentistry, and offers dialogue on how practitioners could pursue a more balanced option that will serve the best interest of both parties.
