Dental Industry

Overview People

OVERVIEW

Dentists and their practices encounter many opportunities and challenges as they operate and grow their dental practices. These challenges are magnified by a rapidly consolidating market faced with ever changing state and federal regulations. More and more dentists are also contracting with Dental Support Organizations (DSOs) to provide non-clinical support to their practices, allowing the practitioner to focus on providing quality care to patients.

We have extensive experience counseling dental practices and DSOs throughout the United States on the complexities of forming practices and DSOs and the varying commercial, regulatory, and other legal obstacles they face. We are equipped to assist solo practitioners, group practice dentists, and DSOs in a variety of matters, including:

  • Forming Dental Practices and DSOs
  • Buying and Selling Dental Practices and DSOs
  • Dentist Buy-In Agreements
  • Dentist Employment Agreements
  • Practice Financing Issues
  • Contract Negotiation and Preparation
  • Trademark Protection
  • HIPAA and Other Regulatory Compliance
  • Governmental Investigations and Litigation
  • Cybersecurity and Privacy
  • Real Estate Leasing and Acquisitions
  • Federal and State Taxation
  • Estate Planning

Our team of attorneys listed below, including regulatory specialists with transactional, tax, intellectual property, employment, litigation, and healthcare law experience, bring their legal expertise, high financial acumen, and a practical approach to deliver practical solutions to dental professionals, practices, and DSOs.
