“Ethics and Dentistry”
Dr. Eric Katkow will share anecdotes about his experience as a member of the Maryland State Board of Dental Examiners. The audience will have an opportunity to put on their ethical hats and participate in a discussion of real life situations Dr. Katkow faced that require ethical thinking to resolve. Learn about the consequences dentists have faced when poor ethical decision-making occurred.
Dr. Eric Katkow grew up in Baltimore and attended Baltimore City College, the University of Virginia, the University of Maryland School of Dentistry; and spent two years of military service including VietNam with the Marines.
