Vendor to Dental Practices Hacked; 1 Million Affected

A Florida-based company that provides support services to hundreds of dental practices in 20 states says it’s been hacked, exposing information – including payment card numbers – on more than 1 million patients.

If details are confirmed by federal regulators, the incident would be one of the largest health data breaches reported so far this year.

On Oct. 11, Sarasota, Florida-based Dental Care Alliance discovered the hacking incident, according to a breach notification report submitted recently to Maine’s attorney general’s office.

The company’s breach notification indicates information “acquired” by hackers in the incident includes “individuals’ name or other personal identifier in combination with financial account number, or credit/debit card number in combination with security code, access code, password or PIN for the account.”
