The ethical responsibility to provide access to care as part of professionalism is explored. Several suggestions for positioning dental education to enhance the public service side of professionalism are presented prior to admission to dental school, during dental school, and after dental school. All three areas hold possibilities for dental education to instill and advocate for the public service aspect of professionalism.
