Practice as a Salaried Employee or Associate
While most dentists go into private practice, it’s not necessarily right for every dentist. If you are considering other practice options, think about going into practice as an employee or associate for a dentist in private practice. You can also look into working for a corporation that provides dental care or a managed health care organization.
This kind of work offers benefits such as less stress and responsibility, more regular work hours and the chance to practice in non-traditional settings.
