Indore : “Doctors must follow ethics during treatment of patients and they should remember few ‘not to do’ practices like asking patients about their previous consultant or telling them about wrong treatment given to him by the previous doctor,” said past president of Dental Council of India Dr Mahesh Verma.

He was addressing the national workshop of Indian Society of Periodontology postgraduate ‘Colloquium 2016’ on Sunday.

He said that working under the influence of any intoxicant, giving paid certificates, being paid witness, giving advertisements and promoting products of pharmaceutical companies are crimes in the profession.


Organising secretary Dr Gagan Jaiswal informed the audience about treatment of pieria through laser.  “Dental diseases are common but due to increase in awareness, number of patients has also increased. Earlier, an average 15 patients used to come to the hospital in New Delhi with dental diseases in a day and the number has doubled now. Even after increasing awareness, 70 percent of population is still suffering from dental diseases,” he said.
