Unique opportunity for a Pediatric Dentist with great clinical and people skills, who enjoys restorative dentistry, doesn’t want the stress of “running a practice,” or working in “corporate dentistry,” would appreciate the flexibility of setting their own schedule; working how much and when they want, generate net-”take-home” income commensurate with “conventional” practice ownership, and make an enormous, positive impact on the lives of your patients and their families…
Consider limiting your practice to “Comprehensive Pediatric Dentistry under General Anesthesia”
Since closing my pediatric dental office in McKeesport PA, just south of Pittsburgh, in May 2016, I have been providing comprehensive, one-visit, dental treatment under general anesthesia in a surgical center setting at Southwestern Ambulatory Surgery Center in West Mifflin, PA, also, just south of Pittsburgh. The surgery center is fully accredited, equipped and staffed with excellent nurses, OR techs trained as dental assistants, nurse anesthetists and board-certified anesthesiologists. I began the pediatric dental program at the surgery center while still in “conventional” practice, almost 25 years ago. It has been an incredibly rewarding experience for me, the patients I treat and their families.
We treat children, exclusively on referral, from a cadre of dental and medical offices; general practitioners, specialists (including pediatric dentists, and pediatricians) and the county dental clinics. I continue to see and treat patients from my former practice who require additional dental treatment. In addition, I am affiliated with a dental practice whose offices are designed and dedicated to children with developmental disabilities and autism. I provide comprehensive dental treatment under general anesthesia for those patients who need that modality. Our geographic referral area is, literally, the entire western half of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
These offices have been most appreciative that we are able to schedule their patients within a reasonable time frame, treat them comprehensively, and return them to their “primary” dental office for continuing care.
Currently, I am “in the operating room,” treating patients on 2, occasionally 3 days/week. I could be in the OR, treating patients, full time. With little effort, this practice could accommodate several pediatric dentists treating patients, full time.
This is a great opportunity for a pediatric dentist with excellent clinical and “people” skills, who does not want the stress of “running a practice;” managing staff, overhead, examining and treating dozens of patients/day, etc., or working in a corporate dental practice setting, and would appreciate the scheduling flexibility that comprehensively treating a few (4 or 5) patients/day affords.
We participate in virtually all commercial insurance programs and ALL Medicaid and CHIP programs. Due to very low overhead (we are not financially responsible for equipment, supplies, staff or rent,) income is commensurate with “conventional” practice without the stress. We “make up” in volume of necessary treatment provided, what “we lose” in discounted accepted fee schedules.
I am interested in associating with and mentoring a Pediatric Dentist who will replace me, grow this unique practice, and continue to provide these essential services to those children who desperately need them.
