PCI compliance is an important issue for dental practices that process patient payments, as it helps to ensure the secure handling and storage of sensitive payment information. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards that your office must agree to in order to process, store or transmit credit card information. This is in order to protect this sensitive data from fraud and breaches. Non-compliance can result in unwanted fines and reputation damage to the practice, which could lead to lost customers and revenue.
