Most business owners, dental offices share a variety of critical priorities, such as cash flow, managing taxes, attracting and rewarding valued employees, and establishing a long-term strategy to ensure their own financial security.
Fortunately, small-business owners also share an option that could help address all of those goals: Sponsoring a workplace retirement plan.
Dental implants seem to be the one sector in dentistry that is on the rise.
The reason may be partly due to the baby boomer generation, consumer awareness, or advanced technologies and products. Implant manufacturers are investing many dollars into marketing, education, and materials.

Evidently, things just aren’t the same as they were two or three years ago. Aside from the recent recession, technology has also been a contributor to the continuous changes taking place in dentistry.
Laboratories have had to invest in new systems and materials in order to offer their dentist clients the latest products. This has come as a challenge for smaller laboratories who struggle with having the production levels of a large corporate lab.

Many of the doctors I consult with say that they would like to make dental photography an integral part of their dental practice, but many don’t have a dental camera, and many who do have one are using it only sporadically, if at all.
It's amazing to me that dental practices are investing tens or even hundreds of thousands on new dental technologies while ignoring the single most important practice building technology available, the dental camera.

Niche Dental posts this 'mini-financial CE course' for dentists and website visitors...
There were three dental specialists working together in a group practice in the Northeastern section of the U.S. The practice was well run and extremely profitable (providing approximately $900,000 of annual income to each of its stockholders).
Their accountant had formed their corporation and allowed it to remain a “C” corporation rather than taking the time to file for a Sub “S” election (which would have eliminated any possible double-taxation and/or unnecessary payment of taxes that can result from operating as a “C” corporation).
