St. Paul, Minnesota, Cosmetic Dental Clinic Switches Software to Ensure Patient Privacy

ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwired - September 16, 2014) - Serafimov Dental Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, a leader in St. Paul Minnesota cosmetic dental needs, recently switched to a new software program in order to accommodate new Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations, ensuring the security of all patient records.

In addition to purchasing new computers for the switch, the entire staff at Serafimov Dental Cosmetic and Family Dentistry was trained in the new software, which makes it possible to comply with the HIPAA Omnibus Rule.

"Security and privacy are of the utmost importance to me and my staff, and we felt that investing in the change was a small price to pay in order to protect our patients," said Dr. Lubomir Serafimov, who owns and manages the cosmetic dental clinic.

The Serafimov Dental Cosmetic and Family Dentistry staff worked with Sunset Dental Technologies to provide a seamless transition from the old software to the new system. Once the Omnibus Rule was in place, Dr. Serafimov said he quickly began the process of finding new software systems that would bring his office into compliance with the federal regulation.

"I see this as something all St. Paul MN dentists, as well as dentists across the country, need to adapt to swiftly in an effort to maintain the highest level of patient privacy," Dr. Serafimov said.

Serafimov Dental Cosmetic and Family Dentistry -- 250 E. Wentworth Ave., West St. Paul -- has served Minneapolis and St. Paul for the past 30 years. Dr. Serafimov took over the practice 10 years ago, and his highly trained staff is skilled in cosmetic dental procedures including crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, dentures, cosmetic bonding, restoring implants, teeth whitening and mercury-free restorations. The office includes patient amenities such as digital X-rays, sedation dentistry and chairs with built-in massage features.

Dr. Serafimov is a fourth-generation dentist and is focused on assisting families in the community. The clinic offers extended business hours for working families and has an in-office dental plan for patients without dental insurance. Families also can ask about Give Kids a Smile, a program that provides free dental care to children from low-income families. Dr. Serafimov has a special program Whitening For Life that gives current and new patients discounts on professional teeth whitening procedures. Patients continue to receive whitening touch ups if they keep their regularly schedule dental appointments.

Dr. Serafimov graduated with honors from Medical University School of Dentistry in Sofia, Bulgaria. He has completed programs in Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support and has a Nitrous Oxide Sedation Certification. He also is involved in the Twin Cities Orthodontic Study Club and Minnesota Academy of Comprehensive Dentistry and is a member of the American Dental Association, Minnesota Dental Association, St. Paul District Dental Society and Mendota Heights Rotary Club.
