“I wanted to thank you for helping me/our office to better understand what is required to be HIPAA compliant. I was very nervous about your visit but you were so nice and un-intimidating. I felt very comfortable and after being with you for a while I knew as you said you were there to help us.
I have already sent your information to a friend at another dental office and told her how nice you were.
I appreciate your service and wish now I had called you 2 years ago when I first received your information. It could have saved me 2 years of misery & worry.
I feel much better now & more confident that I am up to speed.”

“Duane Tinker performed a compliance review on site at my office and I found it to be a very worthwhile endeavor. Tink reviewed all areas of compliance including radiation, OSHA, HIPPA, record keeping, and infection control. He has a very thorough and up to date knowledge in all these areas, and with his help, I felt confident that going forward my office had the policies, procedures and tools in place to assure compliance according to the letter of the law. Plus, he keeps me up to date through emails of all new laws and recommendations regarding compliance issues. Having a former investigator for the TSBDE review my practice gives me added peace of mind, and I would highly recommend any dental office make use of this valuable service he offers.”

“It’s hard to put a price on the peace of mind that comes from knowing your practice meets compliance standards. As hard as we try to have everything correct, you really don’t know until you are audited (hopefully not by OSHA). Tink made compliance training fun and engaging for my whole team. I would recommend him to any practice.”
– Neil Dean DDS
“We were extremely pleased with Duane’s presentation to our referring doctors and their staff. He was engaging, entertaining and very knowledgeable on the topics covered. We received great feedback from our audience, with hopes to have another event featuring Duane!”
– Casey Turner, DDS MS
“We hired Dental Compliance Specialist after learning of tall the overwhelming change to guidelines and laws made within HIPAA and OSHA.
As an office manager and now also the HIPAA and OSHA compliance officer, these changes are difficult to keep up with.
Duane came into the office and helped organize the office and supplied the office with the wit the tools needed to make sure our office stays in compliance with all the state and federal regulations. Duane and his team offer ongoing webinars and send frequent emails to keep the offices he works with up-to-date with any changes from the Dental State Board and federal changes and as we know, these changes are constant. He is always wiling to answer questions and is available to us for any questions we might have.
This service is essential to keep the office compliant. Should we ever have an audit by any of the governing agencies, we feel Duane has prepared us to face any audit with confidence. He is always just a phone call, email or text away for us and for us that is an amazing feeling.”
– Johnny D. Taylor DDS, PA
“Duane will help you stay in compliance with the biggest investment you’ve made, your dental practice! Duane operates with integrity and is extremely diligent.”
– Dr. Scott Peterson
“The laws are constantly changing, and not knowing is not a defense. Having Duane come into your office is the best money that I have ever spent. He was an investigator for the Dental Board, he knows what tolook for. By the end of the audit you know you will be in compliance with the Dental Board, HIPPA, andOSHA.”
– R. McNeill, DDS, MD
“We had a great experience having Mr. Duane Tinker from Dental Compliance Specialists come to our office and share his expertise; thus, helping us improve and exceed the basic standards of dental compliance in order to better service our patients. We are very grateful! The whole team gained so much from his input, and we look forward to our next meeting.”
– Dr. Lillian Adame-Nelson
“Duane Tinker came to our office two weeks ago for an in-office compliance consultation. He was professional and helpful with all aspects of regulatory compliance in our office. I feel 100% more confident now that we are very compliant with the current federal, state and local laws. He inspects the office and charts for missing or inadequate information, reviews all employee personnel files and I-9 forms for completeness, he reviews the OSHA and HIPPA documentation, he reviews drug logs, information posters, radiology manuals, MSDS notebooks, the infection control plan, and meets with the whole office and the doctor(s) to review his findings. Then he writes a report to document the findings and sends this report to you with optional continued management services to maintain your compliance at the highest level. His program is a “must have” for any and all dental offices in the state of Texas.”
– Dr. J. Darrell Steele
“Duane Tinker and his staff at Dental Compliance Specialists are amazing. The peace of mind that comes with having him on my team is wonderful. There are just too many regulations and recommendations for a dentist and small business owner to keep up with. Dental Compliance Specialists has helped keep me compliant and have given me the tool to stay that way. I recommend them to any dentist who wants to do the right thing and also keep himself protected.”
