Article Highlights:

  • 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.

  • Be unique.

  • 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.”
