This paper analyzes a case study about an ethical dilemma where a dental technician has failed to give the proper information about the benefits and risks of dentures to the patient. Once the dental technician has gone through the ethical reflective process of evaluating the ethical dilemma, the author advises that she can use clinical guidelines to assess an ethical decision-making process. The paper applies codes of dental professional ethics to the practices of the dental technician.

From the Paper:

"In a survey of traditional ways of learning, one way of learning is the process of reflective thinking. All education should include the process of reflective thinking whereby a person turns a subject over in their mind to give the situation serious consideration. This process of reflective thinking allows a person to puzzle together situations whereby the person's inquiry can help them come to a decision-making process. The objective of the decision-making process is to improve the practice of a situation."
