CDA to host practice-building seminars

Starting a dental practice takes a lot of work and knowhow, which is why the CDA Practice Support Center makes sure to keep dentists up-to-date on what they need to know as they go through this process.

For dentists interested in training in this area, the Practice Support Center is hosting a four-part symposium series titled Starting or Purchasing a Practice.  

The first course will be held on Feb. 26 in Union City. For the course, CDA has assembled industry experts to guide attendees through the process of building a practice, providing tips on how to avoid costly mistakes and make smart decisions. Attendees will learn about tax ramifications of a purchase; the benefits and liabilities of structuring a venture as a corporation, partnership or sole proprietorship; red flags in a lease or purchase agreement and much more.

The following industry experts will lead the series: Brad Beck, senior vice president, and Phil Hoover, vice president, Bank of America; Ali Oromchian, JD, managing attorney at Dental and Medical Counsel PC; and John Urrutia, CPA, and partner of MUN CPA’s & Associates.

Pricing is as follows: $25 new professionals*; $50 CDA members; $150 non-CDA members.

Below are the future dates for the course:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014 – Union City, East San Francisco Bay
  • Friday, March 14, 2014 – Orange County
  • Friday, June 20, 2014 – Santa Clara
