PCI Compliance Alert

June 23, 2010

Some CDA members have received questionable information regarding PCI (Payment Card Industry) credit card processing compliance from various sources.  PCI compliance concerns the security of credit card information. For example, if you currently use a terminal to swipe credit cards, the terminal must be updated so both the merchant and customer copy of the receipt are truncated to show only the last four digits of the credit card number (not the entire card number).

Requirements for Inspection of Volumetric Dental Imaging Systems Revised

June 10, 2010

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has announced additional changes to its radiology (x-ray) regulations.  Extensive changes to the rules were adopted in October 2009.  Most of the new changes are non-substantive, grammatical corrections. 

For dentistry, the notable change is in the “Part 2” language that will require annual inspections for volumetric dental imaging systems.  Most dental x-ray equipment must be inspected every three years.  An exception is made for portable handheld units, which must be inspected every year.  The revision is intended to clarify the department’s existing policy for volumetric dental imaging systems.
