Download the ODA's regulatory compliance guide!

Ohio Dentist Advisor: Your Guide to Regulatory Compliance was created by the Ohio Dental Association as a benefit to ODA members. The Ohio State Dental Board, Ohio Department of Health, DEA, Ohio Board of Pharmacy, Ohio Attorney General’s office, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and other government entities all have some level of regulatory authority over a dental office and can impact an office’s ability to operate. Inside this guide, you’ll find summaries, checklists and fillable forms to help you ensure your office is compliant with regulations.


Dental Insurance Working Group

Have a problem with a dental insurance or third-party payer situation? The ODA may be able to help!

If you have been unsuccessful in resolving a third-party payer situation, you may want to consider submitting information to the Ohio Dental Association’s Dental Insurance Working Group (DIWG) to determine if the ODA has a role in addressing the matter.

The DIWG is comprised of a dedicated group of ODA member dentists who volunteer their time to determine the ODA’s formal role in addressing dental insurance-related questions, concerns and complaints involving dental insurance and third-party payers that are submitted by ODA member dentists.
