CSHM LLC is committed to ensuring that all dental services meet professionally recognized standards of health care, including those of federal and state health care programs, state dental boards, and those articulated by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

We maintain a detailed compliance program, employ an experienced chief compliance officer, and run a large compliance department to train, monitor, identify, formally track and follow up on all compliance-related issues. We also operate a comprehensive training and education program regarding compliance and quality of care.

Our compliance department is staffed by an experienced team that is dedicated to auditing, licensing and credentialing, and rigorous internal monitoring.

CSHM's compliance efforts are prevalent at all levels. Every associated dental center has a compliance liaison, and our board of directors includes a compliance committee that meets quarterly to certify our compliance with quality of care and regulatory mandates.
