Introduction to Group Practice

Learning Objectives:

Upon hearing this podcast, the listener should:

  • Have a better understanding about what group practices are
  • Know some advantages and disadvantages to entering into a group practice once out of dental school

The dental industry has changed significantly over the past two decades. Dentists are readily availed innovative products, technologies, and procedures that aid in the oral health enhancement and emotional well being of patients in ways early pioneers could never have imagined. The income of the dental practitioner has generally outpaced inflation in recent years and, in parts of the world, has even exceeded that of physicians. Technology continues to move dentistry from primarily a surgical discipline into a digital and less invasive medical model, with complements in pharmaceutical and biologic advances. Learning communities interact more readily, thanks in part to the Internet and the ease of communication it readily affords, and such groups include partnerships among practitioners, industry, universities, and the like.
