Description: Entering a partnership or transitioning dental practice ownership can be a wonderful financial opportunity for both parties. It can also create positive change in the office with growth and mentorship opportunities. Developing a seamless partnership structure, however, requires great planning on the established doctors’ part as they lead the way, making a vast majority of the critical decisions and changes necessary to be successful. Discover how fair and equitable partnerships are formed in order to foster long-term success.
