What Happened at ProSmile?

In January 2023, ProSmile became aware of a potential data security incident related to its email tenant. A cybersecurity firm was hired to investigate the potential data breach and assess the impact on sensitive patient information. It s unknown why the investigation took so long, but it eventually concluded that certain personal and protected health information may have been accessed and acquired.

A review of the potentially impacted data was conducted to identify the types of personal data involved and to determine the specific individuals impacted. The data allegedly includes names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, driver’s license or other state identification card numbers, financial account numbers, payment card numbers, medical treatment information, diagnosis or clinical information, provider information, prescription information, and health insurance information.

On December 22, 2023, ProSmile ultimately began notifying the potentially impacted individuals about the incident.
