Is it time for your annual OSHA and HIPAA training? Join the Toothcop for LIVE OSHA & HIPAA Training! We know LIVE is much better and more fun. Interact with Duane, ask questions, and enjoy his kooky humor....you never know what he might say!
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.
With the help of his compliance team audit and inspect dental practices to find and fix the very problems that land dentists on headline news for issues related to infection control, drug diversion, insurance/Medicaid fraud, and other nightmares.
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!
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!
What is covered in the training?

HIPAA Training for Dental Offices
Patient privacy and security requirements for dental professionals are ever evolving. While training requirements are vague, the Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (HHS-OCR) has reinforced that they expect HIPAA training to be a continual process and that annual training is a ‘minimum’.
Dentists and their workforce (independent contractors and employees) must receive training that is relevant to their job function. This course will outline the fundamentals and latest requirements related to the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules, and Security Awareness requirements. This course will fulfill the requirements of HB300 (Texas Medical Privacy Act) of 2012.
