Are you looking to grow your practice? Choosing the right model for your dental practice is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make if you want to grow successfully. Private group practices are often categorized into three models: dental service organization (DSO), dentist-owned-and-operated (DOO) as well as a hybrid model. This eBook can help as you explore which is the right model to help you achieve your goals.
Group practice models can help dental teams address the shifts in health care and trend toward improved work-life balance. For example, the dentists in a DSO are exempt from nonclinical duties. The DSO model has other advantages, including working a consistent schedule, saving money on overhead and accessing better benefits.
Likewise, a DOO dentist can enjoy a flexible schedule while maintaining control through ownership. In this model, a single organization is owned and operated by one or more dentists, and advantages include higher pay and increased purchasing power.
For many though, the right path is a hybrid of the DSO and DOO models. Whatever you choose, the key is to be smart in your business strategies and find a reliable practice management system that supports your practice goals. Read the eBook to learn more about each path as you determine the best solution for you.
