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.
