Dental Office Start-Up and Operation Services

Starting up and operating a dental office is no easy feat. While well-versed in their field and in providing top-quality care for their patients, most dental professionals are not as experienced in the legal and business aspects of owning a practice. 

At Pacific Law Group, PC, we are here to help. Dental providers can count on us to provide answers to important questions and the practical advice they need. We have extensive experience in all aspects of dental office start-ups and operations. Areas our Glendale dental attorney can help you address include: 

  • Choosing a business entity: Do you intend to operate as a solo practitioner, a limited liability company (LLC), or a corporation? We answer your questions regarding liability and tax implications for different types of entities and ensure all required documents are filed with the California Secretary of State. 
  • Joint ventures and partnerships: Considering a joint venture, in which you join forces with another dental provider, or need legal guidance in negotiating affiliations with insurance companies and health care networks? Pacific Health Law Group makes sure you are protected. 
  • Dental office leasing: Whether purchasing office space or leasing, our Glendale dental attorney will review all contracts and represent you in resolving any conflicts that arise.  
  • Legal compliance: You can count on our legal knowledge and experience to make sure you are in compliance with all business and professional codes listed under the California Dental Practices Act
  • Office staffing and general operations: We guide you in employee search, interview, and hiring processes, ensure compliance with local labor codes, and help you put office policies in place to help ensure your success.
