Dear Valued Customer,

The Knight Dental Group is committed to protecting the confidentiality of your patients. Entrusting us with your patient health information is an honor and something we hold in high regard and with complete confidentiality.

The US Department of Health and Human Services has drafted the Privacy Rule so to not interfere with the sharing of information among health care providers for patient treatment.(1) The Privacy Rule classifies dentists and the dental laboratories that fulfill dentists' orders for prosthetics as health care providers. (2) Therefore, disclosures between you and Knight Dental Group for our treatment activities are exempt from the business associate requirements of the Privacy Rule. (3)

We appreciate your business and the trust you have placed in us. We pledge to you that we will not allow any unauthorized sharing of information and will safeguard all patient health information from any misuse.

Sincerely,

Knight Dental Group
