Abstract
Informed consent is a fundamental component of good clinical practice and clinical governance. Dental practitioners must be aware of the principal factors that need to be addressed to ensure that consent is valid. Consent, as defined by the Websterís dictionary, is to give assent or approval. Informed consent is not just a signature on a consent form, it is a process of dialog between the dentist and the patient. It requires a full explanation of the nature, purpose and material risks of the proposed treatment in a language that the patient understands. The patient should have the opportunity to consider the information and ask questions in order to arrive at a balanced judgement of whether to proceed with the proposed treatment. The value of obtaining informed consent is of particular importance in orthodontics. Orthodontic treatment is usually of long duration, involves a number of appointments and is extremely reliant on the patientís co-operation, in particular with appliance wear and maintenance of good oral hygiene. This article highlights the concept of informed consent which is based on the premise that each individual has a right to make decisions concerning his health, disease and treatment.

Key words: consent, informed consent, orthodontic treatment
