My Mama’s small Oklahoma town does not have a Starbucks but it has a “corporate” dental practice. Corporate practices are on the rise. The ADA chose corporate dentistry as a hot issue for last year’s ADA Mega Topic forum for our House of Delegates. Frontline and the news are all over it. Rumors of poor quality, overtreatment and lack of consequences for the corporation’s role in adverse patient outcomes cause grave concerns for dentists and the public.
