Oath to the Profession

ARIZONA SCHOOL OF DENTISTRY & ORAL HEALTH

CLASS OF 2012

Oath to the Profession

In the presence of classmates, family, friends, and teachers, I (you will say your name here)


pledge to faithfully fulfill my obligations as a member of the dental profession.

My responsibility is to promote the health of the community and those I serve.

The health of my patients will be my first commitment.

My practice depends upon the trust of my patients. I will not violate that trust. I will do no harm.

I will honor my peers and respect the diversity they bring to the profession and commit to our mutual success.

I will honor my patients’ dignity. I will be their zealous advocate, sensitive to their feelings, needs, and thoughts. I will not discriminate against any person in my decisions and care.

I recognize the limits of my competence. I will seek knowledge and inspiration from my colleagues whenever my patients’ needs require. I will strive to improve my knowledge and skills.

I am responsible for contributing to the improvement of the community. I will strive to prevent disease and correct adverse social conditions. I will serve as both a teacher and role model for my patients, my successors, and the public.

I am responsible for upholding my profession’s integrity. I will strive to counsel those deficient in character or competence and expose those who engage in fraud or deception. I will use my professional knowledge according to the laws of humanity.

With this oath, I willingly assume these responsibilities.
