Our Personal Information Procedures:  We have appointed a Privacy Officer as our principal advisor and issues manager regarding personal information protection. On your behalf, our staff is trained in personal information protection. We review our information collection procedures and consent forms on an ongoing basis, and we ensure that any contractors we hire who might have access to your personal information also take steps to protect the privacy of your personal information. At the Leigh Smile Center we have a privacy policy in place for patients and employees. The Personal Information Protection Procedures below tell you how we fulfill the commitment to patients in our Privacy Policy at the Leigh Smile Center Dental Health Clinic.
Protection of Your Personal Information in Our Records:Our records containing your personal information are stored in a secure place. Our electronic records are stored on hardware that is secure. Passwords are used on all of our computers. We take care to protect screen monitors from public viewing in the office. Paper records are transferred outside our office in sealed envelopes by secure methods and with reputable carriers. Telephone discussions with patients in the office are carried on with sensitivity to protecting personal information. Electronic information is transferred in secure files, and sent anonymously wherever possible. We do not share your personal information outside our office for any marketing, promotional, publicity, educational or research purposes without your consent.
Our staff is trained to handle your information only through the protective measures outlined in our privacy procedures. If we hire consultants or contractors who might have access to any of your personal information, we will take steps to ensure that the consultant or contractor takes steps to protect the privacy of your personal information.Storage and Destruction of Personal information:

We are required by legislation and regulation to keep records containing personal information for specified periods of time. We keep your records for a maximum of
11 years from your last service (as recently mandated by the ADA+C), even if you move from our office. We destroy personal information in paper records by shredding it. We destroy electronic personal information by deleting it. When discarding hardware, we make sure the hard drive is destroyed.

We have also recently implemented a program to provide all our Dental Implant patients with a complete Implant component parts list for their Dental Implant treatment. This list contains the implant manufacturer, implant type with serial numbers, size, and all the prosthetic parts code numbers. Since Dental Implants could potentially last a patient's lifetime, it is important that the patient maintain this information for the future. This will protect the patient after the 11 year period for maintaining records.
