Corporate Dentistry: A Global perspective

Bharathi Purohit, Abhinav Singh


A corporation is a legal entity that is created under the laws of a state designed to establish the entity as a separate legal entity having its own privileges and liabilities distinct from those of its members. Corporations have existed in almost every profession and dentistry was not far behind. When patients visit a dental office they expect a diagnosis and resolution of the problem. They expect to leave the office with their problem solved completely, with minimum physical and psychological discomfort, and at a reasonable cost. The success of a dentist in providing oral health care quickly, completely, painlessly, and at a reasonable cost requires the collaborative effort of what can be referred to as the dental enterprise. The future of corporate dentistry in many countries including United States and India remains uncertain. There is a need of clear and well defined laws regarding the opening practice of these set ups. Well articulated laws will not only be beneficial for dental surgeons and the corporate industry but will also be seen as a welcome move by the dental patients.
