Practice Pointers for Young Dentists
Ronald P. Goldman, ESQ
Young dentists are facing a number of challenges after they leave the security of dental school. With a mountain of school debt, every graduate and young practitioner cannot afford making a business mistake. We explore the Top Ten business pointers for the young dentist and then walk through the business relationships typically encountered by the new practitioner from associate offers, to equity buy in opportunities to the due diligence process in purchasing a dental practice. The focus is on how to avoid the sand traps, pitfalls and practice traps that other young dentists have fallen victim to in the hands of shrewd senior dentists.
