Patient Privacy Policy

Personal health information is private and confidential.  The Doctors and Staff of Southern Maine Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery work very hard to protect your privacy and preserve the confidentiality of your personal health information. 

Please understand that we may use and disclose your personal health information to help provide care for you, to handle billing and payment, or to take care of other health care operations.  There will be no other uses and disclosures of this information unless you permit it.  However, please understand that sometimes the law may require the release of such information without your permission.

Southern Maine Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery has a detailed document called the “Notice of Privacy Practices.”  This notice is posted on the wall of each of our three offices.  It contains more information about the policies and practices protecting your privacy.
