The article focuses on the professionalism of all dental professionals being derived from the guidelines of General Dental Council (GDC) of Great Britain. Professionalism is said to have three cornerstones: patients related professionalism; colleagues related professionalism; and professionalism in the context of one's behavior and development. The idea of patient-centred professionalism was captured in a paper in 2004 by Sir Donald Irvine, past president of the GDC.
