We are committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information and to utilizing all personal information in a responsible and professional manner. In addition to the circumstances described in this form, we also collect, use and disclose personal information when permitted or required by law. Common ways we use and collect personal information are listed below: Contact information is disclosed to third-party health benefit providers and insurance companies when a patient has submitted a claim for reimbursement or payment of all or part of the cost of dental treatment or has asked us to submit a claim on their behalf. It is also used to invoice for dental services, collect unpaid accounts, or to remind patients concerning the need for further treatment. Financial information may be collected in order to make arrangements for the payment of dental services. Medical information is collected and used for the purpose of diagnosing dental conditions and providing dental treatment. It may also be disclosed to other dentists and/or specialists for procedures to which Living Wellness Dental practitioners may choose to refer them. If selling all or part of our dental practice, qualified potential purchasers may be granted access to patient information in order to verify information important to the potential sale. If this occurs, we will take steps to ensure that the prospective purchaser safeguards all personal information. Dentists are regulated by the Alberta Dental Association and College, which may inspect our records and interview our staff as part of its regulatory activities in the public interest.
