The Lyon Firm is actively involved in healthcare privacy and data theft cases nationwide and is currently investigating JDC Healthcare (Jefferson Dental) claims on behalf of data breach victims in Texas.
JDC Healthcare Management LLC, the Dallas, Texas parent company of Jefferson Dental and Orthodontics, has begun notifying over one million individuals of a recent data breach event that may impact the security of some of your sensitive personal information.
In August 2021, JDC Healthcare became aware of a malware breach that impacted company systems.

Jefferson Dental and Orthodontics has 72 offices across Texas. According to the Texas Attorney General website, 1,026,820 individuals may have had their data leaked in the JDC Healthcare security breach. Jefferson Dental says there is not yet evidence of personal information misused, though that is a always a distinct possibility, and experts urge data theft victims to protect personal information to the best of their ability.
