NOTICE FOR OUR PATIENTS
Our practice Canterbury Family Dental (ABN 1260635609) collects health information about you in order to provide you with dental services. Personal information collected such as your name, address, contact details, health insurance and financial details are also used to address accounts to you, process payments and to contact you about our services and any issues affecting your health care.
We may collect your health information from other health care professionals, or disclose it to them if, in our judgement, it is necessary in the context of your care.
If you choose not to provide us with information relevant to your care, we may not be able to provide a service to you, or the service we are asked to provide may not be appropriate for your needs. Importantly, you could suffer from harm or other adverse outcomes if you do not provide us with relevant information.
For administration purposes, we may rely on service providers located outside Australia. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that any offshore data transfer complies with Australian privacy laws. Whilst our practice takes all reasonable steps to ensure the security of your information, we cannot guarantee secure transmission of information over the internet.
Our practice privacy officer can be contacted at the practice during business hours if you have any concerns or questions about a privacy matter.
