Overview
So you want to start your own practice? One of the most critical threshold issues you’ll face is which business structure to use. This decision will impact every aspect of your business (even day-to-day management decisions!) and will have tremendous legal and tax consequences. In this presentation – which supplements the American Dental Association’s publication, A Dentist’s Guide to the Law: 246 Things Every Dentist Should Know – ADA Associate General Counsel Samara Schwartz will orient you to the following:
• The 5 business formats utilized by virtually all dentist practices, and their respective pros/cons
• How to identify when to revisit your choice of legal entity, even after your practice is up and running
• The value of consulting with professional advisors (attorneys and accountants) to get actionable advice tailored to the state where you are practicing as well as your unique circumstances

This presentation is most beneficial when viewed in conjunction with reading the guide, which includes a detailed, practical checklist of questions to ask when two or more dentists begin discussions about forming a group practice.
