What are DSOs

What are DSOs

Dental Service Organizations (DSOs) contract with dental practices to provide critical business management and support including non-clinical operations. The creation of DSOs have allowed dentists to maximize their practice with the support of professional office management. The DSO model enables dentists to focus on the patient while delivering excellent dental care and taking the burden of office management off their shoulders.

First launched in the 1990’s, DSOs help dental practices deal with the complexities of administration, accounting, and insurance, which can be especially daunting when dealing with state Medicaid programs. They allow dentists to expand and streamline their services, by providing their patients with new technologies, such as radiography, in-office CAD/CAM, intraoral cameras, implants, online record keeping, and scheduling. DSOs often provide training assistance for skills dentists do not traditionally have, such as business management and marketing.

DSOs have proven to be an effective tool for streamlining dental practices, bringing down costs, and leaving more time for dentists to provide care. To learn more about the exciting DSO market, click here http://theadso.org/news/industry-news/.

 

Benefits of DSOs

With a Dental Service Organization (DSO), orthodontists can focus exclusively on patient care, while all other business and administrative aspects of the practice are taken care of by the parent organization.
