While a dentist may review and enter into many contracts during the course of their career, one of the most important, and complex, agreements they will encounter is a business services agreement with a dental support organization (DSO). The American Dental Association (ADA) urges a dentist who is in any such situation to review a business services agreement with a healthcare attorney experienced with these types of agreements. 

The ADA’s new whitepaper, Business Services Agreements with DSOs: What a Dentist Should Know [PDF], presents some of the issues found in business services agreements with DSOs. These issues – including regulatory, employment, compensatory, and areas of control and responsibility – can result in significant financial and other risks for the dentist. 

For more information on what dentists should consider before meeting with an attorney, ADA members can download the free PDF whitepaper below.
