I talk about dental corporations from beginning to end, that is from forming or buying the dental practice to leaving, closing or selling the dental practice.  Along the way, I discuss some basic contracts for a dental corporation, including dentist employment agreements, dentist independent contractor agreements, shareholder buy-sell agreements, and dentist exit / severance agreements.  I explain how to bring a new dentist into a practice and how non-competition clauses work when the dentist leaves the practice. 

Without further adieu, please go to the next article, Should you incorporate your dental practice?  Good luck.
