HIPAA Form For Dental Office
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is as important for a dental practice as for any other medical practice in the United States to safeguard the creation, usage, storage, and disclosure of patient records. Need to collect medical information and ensure HIPAA compliance throughout the process in your dental office? Grab this template on 123FormBuilder and sign up for our HIPAA compliance services that enable you to create the best HIPAA forms for dental office use.
Who Needs a HIPAA Form?
HIPAA forms are mandatory for covered entities that provide treatment and obtain patients’ PHI (protected health information). Our HIPAA-compliant forms for dental practices help collect, store, and manage ePHI (electronic protected health information) effectively, ensuring dentists with the written authorization they need to enable the appropriate treatment and healthcare operations.
To keep your dental form HIPAA compliant, train your business associates and employees about what it means to comply with HIPAA privacy practices, and how they should approach the health information you collect with the patient’s consent and notice.
It is important you use a consent form whenever you request health information from a person who comes in contact with your dental practice, and the agreement should contain a legally binding signature for authorization. You must provide patients with a checklist of your operations, disclosures, and a notice of privacy practices at their first appointment.
What Information Must the HIPAA Compliance Form Contain?
A HIPAA-compliant dentistry form document needs to include core information such as the covered entity and its business details, patient information, date, expiration date, privacy rule checklist, acknowledgment, payment process (where applicable), and additional authorization statements.
123FormBuilder is HIPAA compliant and dentists can use the form builder to create forms, gather health information from patients, enable payment collection, add electronic signatures, save records, and more at a reasonable price.

HIPAA Privacy Rule FAQs
What is a HIPAA Authorization Form?
A HIPAA authorization form is a document that grants covered entities permission to use a patient’s PHI for marketing or other purposes that do not involve treatment, health care operations, or payment. 123FormBuilder’s HIPAA compliancy enables administrative staff and medical providers to create online-shareable HIPAA authorization forms that patients may fill and sign on any desktop, tablet, or mobile device.
Is Dental Protected by HIPAA?
The HIPAA privacy rule applies to all dental practices in the United States but not all dentists are covered by HIPAA depending on the circumstances. A dental clinic is covered by HIPAA but not the dentists who are employed there. That’s why it’s the clinic’s responsibility to ensure dentists comply with the HIPAA compliance policies and address violations promptly.
Do HIPAA Forms Need to Be Signed Annually?
No, covered entities and patients do not need to sign HIPAA forms annually. However, if there are significant changes to the notice, the covered entity has to inform the patient and obtain a new signature. Here are 10 ways to prevent HIPAA violations in your clinic.
