Communication with the patient in dentistry: what the law requires. What does the law require with respect to the communication of dentists with their patients? The answer is first of all to be found in the Act on the medical contract, which is incorporated in the Dutch Civil Code, and applies also to dentistry. In this article, that act is discussed with a view to dental practice. Particular attention is given to the content and extent of the duty to provide information, and to the liability of the dentist who acts negligently on this point.
