Get Essential Dental Compliance Support For Just $59 a year!

Stay up-to-date on critical regulatory requirements impacting dentistry, elevate your overall compliance knowledge and connect with like-minded dental professionals. All for less than $5 a month!

Dental compliance can be complex and overwhelming, with multiple laws governing your legal responsibility.

There are many sources of information, from books and free courses to guidance passed on secondhand from colleagues. In a regulatory landscape that is ever-changing, with new responsibilities and unknown risks, is this really enough?

Will it ensure your practice is protected from the fines, penalties, and negative press if a complaint is filed against it or if you have a random inspection?


And it certainly won't put you in a position of confident compliance.

What's the alternative?

The path to confidence is knowledge — knowledge gained directly from experts, firsthand. Knowledge that you can trust and depend upon.

At the Institute for Dental Compliance and Risk Management we want to give you the knowledge, skills, and tools to not only tackle the compliance challenges your practice faces today, but the confidence that you'll be able to truly safeguard your practice, your patients, and your team for the future.

Knowledge in Bite-Sized Chunks

Staying up to date with compliance is essential. But do you have time to spend hours trawling through pages of information on Google, or reading books and guides to get the answer to one question? Especially if you're still left with that feeling of whether the answer is right for your specific circumstances?

Our member articles and closed cases are focused and to the point. Our expert interview recordings and more in-depth and perfect for getting immersed in the topic when you have more time - like during your commute.

And when you have a compliance question or need an answer quickly, you can ask in our member forum - a closed Facebook group just for members. You'll be able to get feedback from other members and Institute staff.
