Reporting Child and Elder Abuse
Dentists and other health care professionals are required by the state to report suspected child or elder abuse. As mandated reporters, you must file a report any time you suspect abuse — you are not required to make a determination on whether or not abuse is actually taking place, and you may remain anonymous. Reports are also not subject to penalty if the abuse is unsubstantiated.
