10 July 2011 latest news ROY MORGAn POLL SHOWS dEnTISTS AS OnE Of THE MOST TRUSTEd And ETHICAL PROfESSIOnS In AUSTRALIA QUEEn’S bIRTHdAY HOnOURS 2011 SUCCESSfUL RECIPIEnTS Of AdA STUdY GRAnTS The 2011 Roy Morgan Image of Professions Survey has shown that dentists are amongst the most trusted and ethical professions in Australia. The telephone survey, conducted over 22 to 24 March 2011, surveyed 638 Australian men and women aged 14 and over. The results showed that Australians are becoming even more trusting in their healthcare providers. Nurses are rated by 90% (up 1% in a year) of Australians aged 14 and over as the most ethical and honest profession, followed by doctors (87%, up 8%) and dentists (76%, up 8%). Nurses remain as the most ethical and honest profession for the seventeenth year in a row since the profession’s inclusion in the survey in 1994. As the healthcare of Australians becomes even more crucial to both the public and government, more trust is being placed in healthcare providers. On the other hand, car salesmen (3%, down 2%) were once again rated the least ethical and honest profession – a position they have held for over 30 years. Since 1974, the integrity of dentists has steadily risen from 61% to the latest result of 76%. The following members of the dental profession were honoured in the 2011 Queen’s Birthday Honours: MEdAL Of THE ORdER Of AUSTRALIA (OAM) Naren CHELLAPPAH OAM – For service to the international community as a volunteer dental surgeon.
