H-7 Dental Practice Ownership (2016)

Policy Number: H-7

Policy Category: Health Care Delivery

The American Student Dental Association believes patient’s interests are best served when dental practices are owned and controlled by dentists licensed in the jurisdictions where those practices are located.

ASDA favors utilizing a dentist-led team approach to ensure that no practice modalities or treatment criteria interfere with the dentist-patient relationship, provider autonomy and treatment within the standard of care.
