Live Compliance training with the toothcop

Annual OSHA & HIPAA Training

Join the Toothcop for LIVE annual OSHA & HIPAA Training! We know LIVE is much better and more fun. Interact with Duane, ask questions and enjoy his kooky never know what he might say! 

Only want to take one course? No Problem! If you're just needing OSHA or HIPAA training, we have the individual courses available. Dates are listed below!

*Fee $30/person per course

Duane Tinker used to investigate ‘naughty’ dentists as a state police investigator for the Texas Dental Board. Quite literally he traded in his badge and gun (no joke) for the opportunity to share his knowledge and experience with dentists trying to do the right thing. He recognized that most dentists and their staff care about doing the right thing but struggle understanding and applying the multitude of rules and regulations they have to comply with. Tink believed he could stand in the gap and make a difference with his knowledge and experience to make dental offices safer for patients, dentists, and their dental teams. Since 2011, Tink and his team have supported nearly 900 clients and over 1500 dental offices.

Since we're all a bit limited, why not take part in a live zoom OSHA & HIPAA training session? We guarantee you'll get just as much out of it as you would an in-person training with the Toothcop!

*Fee: $50/person for OSHA & HIPAA Training (combined)
