Target Audience: Established dentists who's gross income is at least $1M. These individuals produce high-quality dentistry and have rock solid integrity.
Organization Description: Currently, there are dentists who are sole practitioners. These are dentists who are owners and CEOs of their own dental practice/practices. Alternatively, there are large corporations who have purchased these individual dental practices and combined them into what are known as corporate group practices (e.g. Aspen Dental, Heartland Dental).
The sole practitioner at the time of retirement can choose to sell to another individual (usually at a much lower price) or sell-out to a big, corporate group practice. If they choose the latter, it is often times for a higher price than the individual sale, but it sacrifices the legacy of the practice and turns it into a puppy mill for teeth.
Dental Fusion is the solution - this organization is totally unique to the industry. If a dentist becomes a part of dental fusion he is not a sole practitioner and he is not a corporate puppet. Instead he remains the owner and CEO of his practice, yet gains the benefits of the negotiating power (with insurance companies, suppliers and laboratory fees) of a corporate/group practice. This is done by a collaboration of sole practitioners coming together. And while the practice is individually managed, certain functions are centralized (marketing, accounting, consulting). The biggest advantage is that when you are ready to retire, Dental Fusion buys your practice by selling to the peers of the organization who have all are aligned with the intension of maintaining the legacy of your practice.
