Nurturing Your People Power

January 18th, 7:00-8:30 p.m. Eastern Time

(US and Canada)

Have you and your team been working on overdrive because no one is answering your ad?

Are you potentially burned out but afraid to admit it?

Could patient care and satisfaction be slipping because you’re shorthanded?

These sentiments are echoed across the country. It’s no secret that dentistry is still experiencing a good deal of transition and changes post-pandemic.

If we aren’t properly looking after our “people,” we will likely experience compliance issues. Think—violations, fines, complaints, breaches, and negative PR—the risk areas are endless when your core processes, including effective communication, begin slipping.

Walk away from this event with actionable items that will alleviate the impact of transition on your practice or organization. Address your pain points before they take control of your practice or organization, so you and your team can thrive, not merely survive, throughout transitions and changes.

$99 registration includes a 1-year free membership ($149 value).

The Importance of Compliance

Since the beginning of the pandemic, regulatory enforcement has accelerated. In 2020, OSHA proposed nearly 4 million dollars in penalties arising from violations relating to coronavirus, some of those penalties included dental offices. In fiscal year 2021, the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that it had recovered $5.6 billion from False Claims Act (FCA) cases. As more dental services are covered by Medicare, this has a direct impact on the quality of your recordkeeping. In 2022, eight dental practices and/or DSO’s settled alleged HIPAA violations with the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). The largest dental settlements were $80,000 and $62,500, respectively. Situations like these can result in:

  • Loss of reputation 
  • Loss of patient trust
  • Financial consequences of fines or penalties
  • Possible reporting to the dental licensing board with the potential to impact your dental license
  • Plan of correction and possibly monitoring by the enforcement agency

Join the Dental Compliance Institute today! Elevate your compliance, protect your practice, and enjoy peace of mind.

My confidence has increased and self-assurance abounds! Thanks to the Institute for providing this great opportunity for myself and others to grow.

The Institute made the learning process and implementation easy for me. If I ever needed clarification as I was learning, I could always ask and someone was there to help.

Barb Houser, CDSO, CDSH, Practice Administrator

With the right information we can all make better, more informed decisions that will help to prevent breaches and fines – because really none of us want those headaches do we?!

Cynthia Burstadt, Dental Coach and now CDSH

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.
