Wrapping up our DSO Conversation with a Bow - Part 6 of 6

Wrapping up our DSO Conversation with a Bow - Part 6 of 6

Welcome back to the last post of our DSO blog series!  Thank you to everyone who has read this far.  The goal today – RecapWhat have we learned, and what do we do next?

What exactly have we learned?  I’ve summarized it for you below:

  • Today, young dentists are attracted to the DSO model because it allows them to work in a complex network of practices and receive a small piece of the larger equity puzzle. Dental practice owners are attracted to the DSO model because that model can facilitate growth and scale.
  • To build a DSO, you will engage a firm like Stock Legal to build out the structure, which typically consists of:
    • DSO Entity Organizational Documents;
    • Management Services Agreement;
    • Employment Agreement; and
    • Award Agreement (often paired with an incentive equity plan).
  • The documents above build out the organizational structure that allows the DSO to provide “back office” (aka non-clinical) services to dental practices (typically owned by dentists). 

Where do we go from here?  That’s easy – Engage a firm like Stock Legal to assist with your DSO legal needs.  It’s a simple as clicking on the green button in the upper right-hand corner of your screen that says “Request a Consultation”.  You’ll promptly be connected with a Stock Legal attorney who can set up a time to talk through your legal needs.  We want to help you build a team that allows you to achieve your DSO aspirations!  We look forward to hearing from you!

If you’re considering a DSO and want more information or legal counsel, please contact us! We’re prepared to meet your timeline.

The choice of a lawyer is an important decision, and should not be based solely on advertisements.
