Do you ever wonder why people recommend visiting a dentist who is a member of the American Dental Association? If so, then our team is happy to tell you!

ADA dentists work by five ethics, which will help you have the best and most successful dental experience possible. Those ethics are:

Respect a patient’s wants and needs
As a patient, you have the right to be involved in your treatment decisions, and you deserve respect and confidentiality. This standard encourages the dentist to put the patient’s wants and needs at the top of the priority list and to involve the patient in every step of the treatment plan.

Do no harm
It’s your dentist’s responsibility to keep you safe and healthy. This means that your dentist needs to keep up with the current dental developments and technology to make sure you are receiving the best treatment and care possible.

Do good
This ethic ensures that your dentist provides high-quality and timely treatment all while keeping your needs, desires, and values in mind. This helps your dentist do whatever is best for you, no matter the circumstance.

Be fair
This ethic ensures that your dentist will provide dental care without discrimination or prejudice. Everyone is treated fairly regardless of race, religion, creed, socioeconomic background, ethnicity, and current health conditions.

Be truthful
The best doctor-patient relationships are based on honesty and trust. Once the patient trusts the dentist, they can both be partners and work toward a top-notch oral health together.

Because Dr. Fisher and Dr. Bergevin are members of the ADA, they work by these standards to make sure you are completely taken care of in the best possible way.
