Dental Consulting Services Mahan Dental Law Provides
By collaborating with a nationwide network of dental practice attorneys, we assist dental clients with all aspects of practice ownership, including:
Our legal team provides business management services and helps dental practice owners implement operating procedures to keep their practices running efficiently and profitably so they can focus on providing quality dental care to their patients.
Legal and human resource counseling
Having a highly trained, professional staff is fundamental to the success of your dental practice, which makes it crucial to have policies and procedures in place that govern the employment relationship. We work with dental clients to put in place the necessary employee agreements, employee handbooks, and managerial systems that can help to establish a positive working environment. In the event of employment-related disputes, we look to the arbitration or mediation process to find workable solutions so that your dental services will not be disrupted.
Dental Practice Startups
Starting a dental practice is one way to gain entry into the dental profession, but there are several factors to consider, including:
- Choosing a location
- Selecting the right business entity
- Leasing office space and equipment
- Identifying your patient demographic
- Branding and marketing
- Arranging for financing
- Obtaining permits and business licenses
Our dental practice startup services are designed to set you on a path to building your legacy in the dental industry and achieving professional and financial success.
Buying or selling a veterinary practice is a major decision, requiring careful planning and preparation, and the strategic representation Mahan Dental Law provides. Our dental practice transition lawyers advise buyers and sellers on all aspects of practice sales and acquisitions from inception to closing and resolving post-closing matters that may arise.
We provide ongoing counsel on governmental compliance to applicable state rules and regulations ranging from facility standards to building maintenance requirements. Our dental practice attorneys also represent clients in administrative proceedings before state medical boards and defend them against enforcement and disciplinary actions if necessary.
Civil Litigation Consulting
Like any business, dental practices face the potential of legal disputes: employment-related disputes, patient disputes, contract disputes, and third-party (e.g. vendor) disputes. We represent practicing dentists before medical licensing boards and in state courts across the country.
While many disputes can and should be resolved through alternative forms of dispute resolution (e.g. arbitration, mediation), we are always prepared for trial in case court intervention becomes necessary. Our legal team will provide you with powerful representation when you need it most and protect your rights and your livelihood in and out of the courtroom.
