This paper considers an ethical case in which a doctor in South Africa is offered a new and better product which she could use in her dental practice, and she holds out until the sales person offers her a trip to New York for a conference. The paper considers ethical issues raised and ethical lapses entitled in this case, finding both the doctor and the sales person at fault.

From the Paper:

"This case involves what appears to be a simple decision on the part of Dr. X to participate in a trip to New York for her and her partner to attend the World Congress on Alternatives to Amalgam Use. Such a congress is in itself not a moral issue, and meetings of this sort are held all the time to promote products, to report on research, and to meet others in the same field and learn from them. However, doctors should make their way to such meetings on their own and not with a ticket paid for by a company seeking to sell them a new product. Dr. X is a dentist in South Africa who currently manages amalgam restorations, and the new product would replace amalgam with a substance that has no mercury in it at all. This makes it a healthier product and so more valuable than the amalgam now in use."
