The privacy of your information is important to us, and at Rio Grande Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, we follow all state and federal regulations protecting your private healthcare information. Information about you or your procedure will be shared only with your explicit permission, and generally, the information you share with us will be shared only for the following reasons:
- For treatment purposes — Your information will be shared with people who are directly involved in your treatment, like your doctor and surgical assistants. If your doctor needs a second opinion from a specialist to better provide care, information about your condition may be shared with another specialist to get their input.
- For payment purposes — Information about your procedure may be shared with your insurance company. Insurance companies need information about what treatment was given so that they can provide payment for your procedure.
- For healthcare operations — Your information may be shared so that we can undergo quality assessment, outcome evaluation, create training programs, and develop better systems for patient care at our practice. We may share your information with other businesses to obtain these quality assessment services. Your personal information will never be shared for marketing purposes.
Thank you for taking the time to review this information, and we look forward to seeing you at our practice.
