Odontology faces important ethical dilemmas: interaction patient-odontologist; access to dental health; consciousness about population's needs, among others. All of these attract discussion and have to be treated according to ethics. This paper wants to show that bioethics, as an open alternative based upon dialogue and comprehension of evidences, will provide tools to find ethical answers for dilemmas and for inter-disciplinary and inter-professional discussions
