Sunshine Act

 

COMPLIANCE WITH SUNSHINE ACT

Dentium USA greatly appreciates your support, collaboration, insight and knowledge in helping us improve the health and lives of patients each day. We strive to provide educational programs and events that allow you and other dental professionals to interact with one another to discuss the benefits, risks, and appropriate uses of our products, exchange information that improves patient care, and help raise awareness about new products or treatments and innovations. 

 

As you may know, the Physician Payments Sunshine Act ("Sunshine Act") provision of the Affordable Care Act will make information about certain interactions between physicians and medical device manufacturers, including Dentium USA, available to the public.  As required under the Sunshine Act, Dentium USA must report to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services ("CMS") specific information about physicians we collaborated with each year, such as names, practice addresses, dates of payment, amount of payments or transfers of value, and the nature of payments. 

Please note that as required under the law, Dentium USA must report separately any meals, travel, lodging, or other materials or items of value associated with your services or activities, rather than the total value of all such payments. Therefore, your name may appear multiple times for this reason.  If you believe that any of the enclosed information is incorrect or inaccurate, please let us know so that we can resolve any discrepancies with our reporting to CMS. Otherwise, we must report the value and information as we have recorded it. 

Dentium USA values your contributions and participation in our educational and informational programs and looks forward to working with you and your practice in the future. We value the interactions and collaboration you and your staff provide to ensure that we continuously improve our products and treatments to better enhance the health and lives of your patients.
