The Dentist’s “Signature Stamp”

Most “signature stamps” contain an exact copy of the dentist’s handwritten signature and used by employees to reproduce the dentist’s signature on paper dental claims and other office documents.

Twenty years ago, it was common to see a “signature stamp” at the front desk of every dental practice, and while the use of signature stamps is less common today, you can still find in dental practices.

Having a signature stamp can be convenient, but there’s also a risk it could be used for fraudulent purposes.
