SYKES, LM; SHAIK, S  e  BRADFIELD, C. Are you responsible and accountable for your actions?. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2023, vol.78, n.2, pp.105-106. ISSN 0375-1562.

In all walks of life we are accountable for our actions. However in dentistry the scope and extent of one's responsibilities may not always be obvious. This paper aims to remind clinicians of their need to be cognisant of some fundamental principles, and to ask themselves certain relevant questions before embarking on any procedure. It makes special reference to the obligations associated with the increased use of dental imaging modalities. It does not purport to be a comprehensive review into any specific dental condition or treatment modality, but is rather a broad overview and reminder of their ethical obligations with respect to their "duty of care".
