Understanding the impact of Dental Service Organizations (DSOs) is critical for every office manager and dentist. My friend Dr. Tony Stefanou - the founder of Connect the Dents - is a solid resource in this area. Even if you’re not planning to join one soon you should know how they operate and grow. We can all learn from the different business models which operate around us. I asked Tony what piques a DSO’s interest and that led to a great conversation about practice valuations. Take some notes with this one!  

We tackled these topics: 

  • Consolidation in the Dental Industry

  • The Importance of Knowing Your Practice's Value

  • Geography and DSO Expansion

  • Practices in High Demand

  • Honing in on DSO Affiliation

  • Career Paths within DSOs
