Privacies/Legalities

At TP Orthodontics, we guard your personal information as zealously as our own. When you visit a T.P. Orthodontics website, you can be assured that your confidential information will remain private and not be shared with anyone without your permission.

Credit card information for web orders is protected by 128-bit encryption to and from the servers and web browser. Credit card numbers are not stored in our database. Once the information is transmitted for processing, we use even stronger encryption in the back end to transmit the request to our payment processor to verify the credit card and place an authorization for the order total.

Equal Employment Opportunity

It is our policy to avoid discrimination in all our relationships with employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, physical handicap, national origin, marital status, ancestry or medical condition unless that condition pertains to the specific work requirements of a position.

TP Orthodontics intends to adhere to the requirements of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and Age Discrimination Law of 1968, and to all other legislation having to do with equal employment opportunities. We do not practice, nor will we tolerate, any form of discrimination, either in compliance with the law or as a matter of principle. We have informed our sources of manpower supply and our management personnel of our firm policy of nondiscrimination.

TP Orthodontics believes in the freedom of opportunity for every individual to work at a job for which he or she qualifies. The Company will ensure that hiring, promoting, and transferring decisions are determined on the qualifications of the candidate. Other personnel actions such as compensation, benefits, discipline, terminations, layoffs, recall from layoffs, training, and recreational activities also will be administered without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, handicap, national origin, or marital status.
