148 Social Media and HIPAA with Noel Kelsch

Interview Starts at minute 4:00

In this episode, we speak with Noel Kelsch about the dangerous world we play in online (social media) when discussing patient information. Noel explains what a much bigger deal this all is!

Noel Brandon-Kelsch is an international speaker, writer, Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice and Director of Cabrillo College Dental Hygiene Program. You heard her on the podcast a few years ago discussing infection control, and in this episode, she tackles HIPAA and social media.  SM is a way for us to learn from each other, but dental professionals have to be cautious with what we share about our patients.  Noel gives us great info on the do’s and don’ts, and we may all be surprised by them.  To reach Noel, you can visit her website and be sure to join her Facebook group, Dental Infection control with a twist.
