Peer Review Board
New York University College of Dentistry ("NYU Dentistry") adheres to the principles of conduct set forth in the NYU Dentistry Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (PDF).
It is expected that these principles will guide the behavior of each member of the College community in his or her academic and professional life, patient care, and personal conduct. The College acknowledges the respect earned from the public and believes that all members of the College community should be exemplary in their compliance with local, state and federal standards, regulations, and policies that pertain to health and health care.
This Code applies to all students, faculty, researchers, administrators, and professional staff of the College. By adopting and publishing this Code, the College declares its authority over all aspects of ethical and professional conduct within the College and establishes the process to be followed by the College for adjudicating instances of noncompliance with the Code.
The responsibility for compliance with the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and for review of alleged violations by DDS students is delegated to the Peer Review Board on Ethics and Professionalism (PRB).
