Understanding the Importance of Licensing and Regulatory Compliance in a Dental Practice

Licensing and Permitting Considerations for New Dental Practice OwnersProspective dental practice owners should be primed to take on the time and effort-intensive job of understanding the industry, staying up to date on the latest dental technology trends, patient care practices, business operations and management strategies, and regulatory considerations. Knowing California’s licensing and permitting rules and laws is an essential component of dental practice operations. 

No business can be conducted without all of the required local, state, and federal licenses in place. Therefore, outside of a comprehensive and well-researched business plan, technical issues such as securing the right licensing and permits are essential to opening your new Los Angeles dental practice. It is important to remember that included in this red tape will be obtaining your own license and permits to be a lawfully functioning healthcare facility.

After you have laid your dental practice’s foundation by acquiring the appropriate permits and licenses to begin practicing, you must still stay informed and up to date on the ever-changing regulations and standards in the dental industry. Doing so will help you operate your business ethically, ensure compliance, as well as manage your business within the boundaries of the law.  

Due to the many complexities that can come with keeping up with compliance and staying abreast of changes to dental laws and regulations, it can be beneficial to have a legal professional’s assistance. The best lawsuit is the one that doesn’t get filed. An attorney can regularly review your dental practice’s policies and procedures to minimize the chances that you will have any violations that could trigger legal troubles in the future. Additionally, an attorney can assist you with establishing a sound compliance program critical to your practice’s risk management safeguards.
