Profits Trump Care in Corporate Dentistry

Hygiene examA corporation exists to make money—as much as possible.   A dental practice, however, exists to provide the best evidence-based healthcare services to its patients.  Making as much money as possible should never become the primary goal of a dental practice, as it is for a corporation. As our CEO once said, “Give the best care you can to each and every patient, and the money will take care of itself.” Making money is a tangential benefit—albeit an important one—that keeps food on the table and the doors open.

How, then, does a dental corporation function? Can corporations be entrusted to hire dentists and manage dental practices? How has managed care worked with physicians?  The answer is volume—get as many patients in for as much treatment in as short a time as possible.  Is that what you really want in your healthcare provider?

We believe in-network corporate dentistry provides substandard care.  That would keep us awake at night.  Contact us for your second opinion.
