How to keep dental practice disputes under control

No one wants to be involved in a dispute that disrupts the normal flow of business to the dental practice. Disputes harm dentists financially and emotionally and cause turmoil within the practice among employees, owners and patients.

Growth through acquisition

Now that you have your team in place, your next step is to find the dental practice. There are practices for sale throughout the country but the pricing is now increasing due to a number of factors such as the economy and the fact that dental practices are very stable financially so that dentists are not selling as readily as in the past. Many dentists have lost considerable money in their retirement plans and also can not afford to retire for that reason as well since their savings have been depleted.

Independent contractor vs. employee

The status of an individual working for someone can be that of an independent contractor or an  employee. Sometimes, businesses hire other businesses to perform services and at times, the term “outsourcing” is used. This term describes the transfer of responsibility to others for the performance of the service in question.  It limits the responsibility to the business needing the service and shifts its responsibility to others and away from the enterprise in question needing the service to be completed.
