HIPAA Compliance Made Easy for Dentistry

  • This event has passed.
Male dentist smiles broadly at the camera. Around his neck he's wearing a mask, dressed in a white doctor's coat with blue gloves, he stands in the foreground of the image. Out of focus in the background a team member addresses the needs of a patient reclined in a dental chair. The whole space is bright and light.
