Recently there has been much discussion in the media and literature pertaining to academic misconduct in higher education. Dentistry has not been immune to this discussion. Recent "scandals" involving student misconduct in U.S. dental schools have sparked dialogue within dentistry's premier professional organizations. The authors of this position paper recognize that academic misconduct can be a serious threat to dental education and the profession of dentistry as a whole. This paper addresses academic misconduct in dental school, the impact it may have on our profession, and how educators can begin to develop strategies to curtail cheating in their institutions.
