3.02.02. A dentist shall avoid any misrepresentation with respect to his level of competence or the efficacy of his own services and of those generally provided by the members of his profession. If the good of the patient so requires, he must, with the latter’s authorization, consult a colleague, a member of another professional order or another competent person, or refer him to one of these persons.
Similarly, he must avoid false representation with respect to the competence or efficacy of the services generally provided by the individuals exercising their professional activities within that same company.
The attending dentist must then, with the patient’s authorization and at the patient’s expense, provide the person consulted, or to whom he has sent the patient, with all pertinent information and copies of any documents considered useful by that person.
