The development of predictive medicine for dentistry is very promising but there are potential abuses as well. Given that genetic testing is at the forefront of predictive medicine, legislation has been established governing activity related to genetics that is both open to the advances that genetic testing can provide and, at the same time, respectful of the fundamental rights of patients and in particular of the rights of minors.
Key words: Bioethics / Consent / Genetics / Genetic testing
