North Carolina Dental Law

Full Legal Services For Your Dental Practice

If you are a dentist who is considering opening a dental practice, whether as a solo practitioner or with one or two other dentists, you may have many questions and concerns. What kind of incorporation should you have? How will the professional and general liability insurance work? How does one partner leave the practice if that time should come? How do we make capital investments? What type of patient intake and liability waiver forms should we use?

Our attorneys at Maitland & English Law Firm, PLLC, not only have the legal experience you need but banking and financial experience as well. They have a full understanding of financing, investing, licensing and, of course, all the legal matters involved in business formations, especially as they apply to the practice of dentistry.

Legal Protections And Assistance For Dental Offices

Just like brushing and flossing avoid cavities, the best way we can help with your legal problems is to prevent them. And, like dentists, we know that prevention is always more cost-effective than treatment. That’s why you need our experienced North Carolina business law attorneys to anticipate your dental practice needs. Act like your best patients and don’t wait until you have a problem to consult with a professional.

When you form a new business, there are brick-and-mortar decisions to be made, as well as staffing and partnership decisions. Many dentists find that a PLLC, or professional limited liability company, works for them. The type of business corporation that you form will depend on your short-term and long-term goals, your risk tolerance and other factors.

The attorneys of Maitland & English Law Firm, PLLC, will develop a specialized plan for your dental practice covering:

  • Business formation — PLLC, LLC, S-corporation or C-corporation
  • IRS and federal filings — The annual reporting required by the government
  • Licensing
  • Forms and waivers for patients
  • Setting up retirement plans for staff and partners
  • Preparation of an exit strategy for partners
  • Buy-sell agreements as needed
  • Leasing agreements for space or equipment
