Self-Employed in Private Practice

According to a 2010 survey by the American Dental Association, 86% of practicing dentists are solo practitioners or part of a group practice. It was and continues to be the traditional choice for new dentists. It may be the choice for you.

What does it offer? The opportunity to be an entrepreneur, practice dentistry on your own terms, provide for yourself and your family financially and see the rewards of providing good patient care. 

Most practitioners use a fee schedule, participate in a preferred provider plan or accept some combination of both to provide care.
