Michael Williamson

Vice President, Chief Compliance Officer for Pacific Dental Services LLP
Michael has specialized in healthcare compliance for over 20 years. He believes a values-based approach to ethics and compliance creates enormous benefits for companies, employees, and stakeholders. His programs are rooted in the ideal that by putting organizational values at the center of everything, the limitations of a rules-based mindset can be transcended. He is passionate about leveraging the power of values to elevate behavior. “People inspired by purpose and guided by commonly understood values create enormous power to self- govern around ethics and compliance while also materially contributing to a organization’s long-term significance.”

Michael is admitted to the Massachusetts Bar, the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, and the New York Bar. He founded a law practice that specialized in all aspects of health care compliance, served as Assistant General Counsel in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Executive Office of Health & Human Services, and has held Chief Compliance Officer, V.P. of Risk Management and Chief Privacy Officer positions in the private sector where he has successfully designed and implemented ethics and compliance programs rooted in the principles of values-based, self-governance.
