Dental Care

The dental industry is primarily composed of dental practices. The dental supply industry is a separate field that manufactures equipment and supplies used in practices. The most common business model of the dental industry is the small, independent private practice. In this model, one dentist owns the practice, and he or she hires others as needed. A very small practitioner may "do it all," from cleaning the teeth to simple surgeries. In this simplest form, the dentist may have just one or two employees to manage the insurance billings, clerical work, and setting appointments.
