Smile Brands Data Breach Lawsuit Investigation
Stueve Siegel Hanson, a national leader in data breach and privacy cases, is investigating potential claims against Smile Brands Inc. resulting from a data breach that exposed patients’ sensitive personal and medical information.
Smile Brands is one of the largest provider of support services for dental practices across the United States. On August 9, 2021, Smile Brands began notifying patients of affiliated practices that their highly-sensitive personal information was exfiltrated and stolen in a “ransomware” attack that was first discovered on April 24, 2021. The stolen information includes patients’ names, addresses, telephone numbers, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, health insurance information, and diagnosis information.
After stealing the confidential data, reports suggest that hackers released it on underground websites known as the “dark web” where it can be accessed by criminal across the globe. Affected individuals are now at serious risk and should take immediate action.
