Your Employee Handbook Doesn’t Just Make Running Your Practice Easier. It Protects You, Too.
The most fundamental tool in any dental practice isn’t your drill. It’s your employee handbook. Your handbook sets employee expectations, helps you avoid or resolve disputes, creates legal safe harbors, AND drastically lowers the risks you face as a dental employer.
But to have all those superpowers, your handbook must comply with hundreds of constantly-changing federal, state, and local laws. It needs customizations for the dental industry and your business size. And it must be tailored to fit your goals and your practice, in ways that address your needs without harming your legal compliance.
CEDR currently works with over 1,000 dental offices across the country, so we know the dental industry inside and out. And our team of attorneys and SHRM-certified HR experts has decades of combined legal, HR, and management experience. Added together, you get first-class expertise and experience that we put to work for you.
Let CEDR HR Solutions do all the hard work of researching and writing a turn-key employee handbook for your practice, so you can concentrate on what you do best: creating beautiful smiles.

Your Associate Dentist Works for You. So Should Your Associate Agreement.
Whenever you hire a new Associate Dentist to work at your practice, you need a well-written, fair, and enforceable Associate Agreement to create a solid foundation for your new working relationship. This not only allows you to confidently expand your practice, but also protect the assets and patient base you’ve worked so hard to build.
CEDR currently works with over 1,000 dental offices across the country, and our in-house advisors have crafted hundreds of Associate Agreements for dental practices of all specialties.
The creation process begins with a one-on-one consultation with a CEDR expert, who will gather information about you, your practice, the associate candidate, and your needs. The final agreement you receive will be fair, comprehensive, tailored to your practice, and compliant with all federal, state, and local employment laws.
Your new agreement will also address non-competes; associate pay scales; if transitioning from a guarantee to a percentage; resolving upsets with an alternative dispute resolution process; protecting your practice and patient base in the event of a separation; and much more.
Chances are, you’re hiring a valuable asset who will increase your revenue while lifting some of the weight of your practice off your shoulders. CEDR’s Associate Agreement has you covered.
Begin a successful employment relationship with a Dental Hygienist Agreement.
Each time you hire a new dental hygienist, you must build a strong working relationship while minimizing your risks. We can help you with that.
CEDR’s Dental Hygienist Agreements lay a solid foundation for success. Each Agreement incorporates the experience we’ve gained over the past decade from helping over thousands of dentists build all-star teams and avoid employee issues. In fact, we’ve custom-written over 1,500 Hygienist Agreements, and counting!
Your new Agreement will include clear communication of your at-will relationship and your initial performance expectations, plus establish a non-solicitation of patients clause, salary structure and recall expectations, HIPAA confidentiality requirements, and more. Your agreement will also put the right tools in place so you can prevent or easily resolve any upsets and avoid employment pitfalls.
Best of all, with the terms and boundaries of your new relationship firmly established, you can get your new hygienist integrated into your team and straight to work.
Your HIPAA Compliance Solution is Here
Much like Human Resources, HIPAA does not need to feel complicated or stressful. And we can prove it. We’ve made HIPAA training convenient, user-friendly and cost-effective for all dental offices, with YourHIPAATraining.com.
Our comprehensive training program includes courses for both supervisors and employees. It covers all 2013 HIPAA Omnibus Final Rule mandates, and addresses critical areas of HIPAA compliance that include office safety, what HIPAA is and what it requires, how to protect PHI and successfully handle any breach you encounter, and how compliance with ARRA, HITECH, and OSHA dovetail with HIPAA compliance.
Access to YourHIPAATraining.com is currently an included benefit for CEDR Members, at no extra charge. But for those offices that just need HIPAA training, you can also purchase the program on its own.
Our program is your best HIPAA training option and could save you many thousands in violations prevented. And since enforcement is expected to ramp up steeply in coming years, your chance to become truly HIPAA compliant is now.
