The GDPR is the new law for the protection of privacy and personal data. Under this law, an organization that processes personal data has certain obligations, and the individual whose data is involved has certain rights. In addition to this general law, specific rules apply to privacy in healthcare.

These rules are, among other things, stated in the Medical Treatment Agreement Act (WGBO). This privacy policy is intended to inform you about your rights and our obligations under the GDPR and the WGBO.

The Dental Practice

In our dental practice, various personal data about you may be processed. This is necessary to provide you with proper medical treatment and is essential for the financial settlement of the treatment.

The obligations of our dental practice

According to the GDPR, Van Mill Dental Practice is responsible for the processing of personal data that takes place in the practice. The practice complies with the obligations arising from this as follows:

  • Your data is collected for specific purposes:
    • for healthcare provision;
    • for effective management and policy.
  • In principle, no processing takes place for other purposes.
  • You will be informed that your personal data is being processed. This can be done by your healthcare provider, but also via a brochure or via our website.
  • All employees within Van Mill Dental Practice have committed themselves to treating your personal data confidentially.
  • Your personal data is well protected against unauthorized access.
  • Your personal data will not be kept longer than is necessary for good care.

For medical data, this retention period is in principle 15 years (from the last treatment), unless longer storage is necessary, for example for the health of yourself or your children. This is at the dentist’s discretion.

Your rights as a data subject

You have the following rights:

  • The right to know whether and which personal data of yours is being processed.
  • The right to inspect and copy that data (insofar as this does not harm the privacy of another person).
  • The right to correction, addition or deletion of data if necessary.
  • The right to request (partial) destruction of your medical data. This can only be met if the retention of the data is not of significant importance to someone else and the data must not be retained on the basis of a legal regulation.
  • The right to add a personal statement (of a medical nature) to your file.
  • The right to object to the processing of your data in certain cases.

If you wish to exercise your rights, you can make this known orally or in writing to Tandartspraktijk van Mill. Your interests can also be represented by a representative (such as a written representative, or your curator or mentor).

Explanation for the application

You should be aware that, in accordance with the law, medical records are typically kept for a maximum of fifteen years.

Patient data

You are required to provide us with the information of the person for whom the medical record is concerned. The Medical Treatment Agreement Act (WGBO) considers the patient as an adult from the age of 16. Individuals aged 16 and above, who wish to access/copy their dental records, must submit the request themselves.
