As dentists contemplate starting their own practice, there are many questions as to what the best way to do this is. And after putting in many years of hard work, it’s important for dentists to understand the basics of starting a dental practice.
Last week, DentistryIQ featured an article I wrote to help dentists successfully start their dream. This is an overview of the article, along with where to find it in its entirety.
Ask yourself “Am I ready to take this step and open a practice of my own?”
Make sure you have all of your required licensing, certificates, and permissions to practice dentistry and to be a business owner.
Hire a team you know will capture your vision and run with it.
Before you have your team hired, look into health benefit options (i.e., a Health Reimbursement Plan or group health insurance).
“If you buy cheap or heavily used equipment, you may set yourself up for potential problems. Don’t skimp on equipment. Find high-quality, gently used equipment, in a brand with a good reputation. This will save you a lot of headaches in the future.”
The article can be accessed via DentistryIQ’s website and is a great resource for dental practice owners and managers.
DentistryIQ provides dental professionals worldwide with a comprehensive collection of information on what is happening in the dental industry. The DentistryIQ feature titled “Wise-up Wednesday from Zane Benefits: Business Basics – A quick guide for dentists” walks through the basics of starting a dental practice.
