Abstract

Ethics are the moral principles or virtues that govern the character and conduct of an individual or a group, as a branch of both philosophy and theology, is the systematic study of what is right and good with respect to the character and conduct. As far as biomedical research is concerned, there are various associations, committees, national and international councils that regulate the protocols and ethical guidelines for research involving human subjects. This moral duty is equally important in our day to day clinical practice too. As various committees and councils have given their ethical codes for biomedical and scientific research involving animal and human being individually. This article briefly outlines what basic principles, one should keep in mind to do good clinical practice, ethical justification to their patients and how to apply this to the orthodontic practice.
