Simply put, corporate compliance means:
- We know what laws impact us.
- We comply with those laws.
- We always act ethically.
We have a corporate compliance program to ensure our employees, participating dentists, subscribers, and business partners are aware of the laws and standards with which we are required to comply. We are committed to preventing, detecting, and deterring fraud. Components of our corporate compliance program are below.
