The Arabic translation of the FDI Dental Ethics manual was launched during the scientific events of the 22nd annual conference of the Jordanian Dental Association and the 39th conference of Arab Dental Association held in Amman-Jordan from 19-22 October 2010
The manual was translated by Dr Ziad AL-Dwairi and Dr Hayder AL-Waeli from faculty of Dentistry-Jordan University of Science and Technology on behalf of the Jordanian Dental Association
Dr AL-Dwairi said that the manual is published in a practical pocket size format and it is hoped that it will become an invaluable aid to the work routine of dental practices and dental schools in the Arab World in order to give all involved in dental education and care the opportunity to benefit from the principles conveyed in this book.
Dr AL-Dwairi added: The manual provides a concise introduction to the basic concepts of ethics and their application to the most common issues encountered by dentists in their daily practice. In addition to its emphasis on the practical application of ethical principles, the Manual focuses on the relationship among ethics, professionalism and human rights.
It is worthy to mention that Dr AL-Dwairi was a member of the international advisory group formed for the publication of the manual in its English language.
