Frequently Asked Questions
Working with and supporting dentists for over 40 years, we’ve learned from our founders and
dentists the important topics doctors think about during the transition process. We’re here to provide guidance and support through the process and will work at your pace and comfort level. At Gentle Dental our executive team is always here to answer any questions.
Can I continue to work if I sell my practice?
Yes, we want you to stay. Most of our doctors do, and earn more while working fewer non-chairside hours. Once the affiliation and integration is settled, specialists will be added to your practice if it makes sense. We’re here to provide support and work hand-in-hand to craft this next stage in your professional career.
Will you put a Gentle Dental sign on my building?
As part of Gentle Dental, you can share in our strong regional brand that enjoys high brand awareness and drives substantial patient flow to the practices. We will assess the value of maintaining your local brand, the potential of demonstrating an affiliation with Gentle Dental, or simply continuing with your brand alone. Not all of our practices are, or should be, Gentle Dental-branded, and we will make this important decision together. The goal is always to do what is right for your business and your patients.
Will the company interfere with clinical aspects of my practice?
No. All of our dentists maintain clinical control over patient care and treatment. We do expect each our dentists to follow the standard of care for the dental community, and the Clinical Management Team is here to help you stay abreast of new regulations, requirements, and techniques.
Can I still refer my patients to my preferred specialists?
Gentle Dental has an outstanding group of specialists that work with our general dentists. We support each other to keep all dental procedures within the organization to the benefit of our doctors and our patients. It is always our goal to serve the patient in the best and most efficient way possible. In cases where you determine that in-house specialty services do not work for a specific patient, then that case will be referred elsewhere. You are in control of your patient’s care.
