We understand that you trust us to protect the confidentiality and security of that data. The information that we collect is used only to provide the dental services that are requested by you. Although there is a new federal law designed to protect the privacy of nonpublic personal information about consumers, we have been and continue to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by this new law.
Information We May Collect About You
We collect nonpublic personal information about you only in connection with providing you with the services that you request. The types of nonpublic information that we collect vary according to the services that we perform for you, and may include:
Information we receive from you such as your name, address, social security number, and other household information.
Information regarding your relationship and past history with us and others, such as the type of dental services we have provided to you, your invoice balances and payment history.
Information that we receive, with your authorization, from third parties such as insurance companies.
How We Handle Your Information
We do not disclose any public or nonpublic personal information that you have provided to us to anyone outside of our practice except as authorized by you or required by law. In addition, we will release information to the extent required by law or regulation. We do not sell patient information to anyone or disclose patient information with marketing companies.
How We Protect Your Information
We restrict access to public and nonpublic personal information that you have provided to the staff members of Pediatric Dental Center who need to know the information in order to provide services to you. All our employees are required to maintain the confidentiality of all nonpublic personal information about you. We maintain physical, electric, and procedural safeguards that comply with both federal law and our more stringent professional standards to protect the public and nonpublic information that you have provided to us.
