Compliance for dental offices comes in many different forms. But perhaps two of the most important among them are OSHA and HIPAA training and certification for the dental practitioners and the dental office staff. 

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) covers training for general safety and health hazards at the workplace such as dental offices, while the HIPAA refers to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 is a federal law that safeguards Patient Health Information (PHI). 

The former U.S. Deputy Attorney General, Paul McNulty, once said, “If you think compliance is expensive, try non-compliance.” These words also hold true for OSHA and HIPAA certification for dental offices. 

Did you know? The typical OSHA penalties for lack of training and certification compliance can reach up to USD 50,000. While in 2019, the average HIPAA fine was more than $1 million! Apart from fines and penalties, lack of training can also lead to health hazards and accidental breaches which can make a dent in your pocket. Goes without saying that opting for a one-stop training and certification solution for your dental office is the best way to keep your practice safe.
