Abstract (Summary)

Each year, thousands of dentists graduate dental schools in the U.S., but 85% of them are not prepared to open and manage their own dental practice (Gagner, 2016). Many dentists also sell their offices in order to retire, but at the same time, they have the desire to give back to underprivileged communities. Dentists For Patients Clinic is a not-for-profit dental establishment that will treat adults and children in an underserved community. Newly graduated dentists who desire to gain both dental and business experience, and retiring dentists who like to continue practicing their trade on a part-time basis will operate the establishment. Dentists For Patients will provide a fully equipped and staffed dental clinic for all providers who are willing to accept all types of dental insurance and perform dentistry at a cost lower than the market place. The purpose of the clinic is to provide quality dental care for individuals who lack access to oral health care due to financial or social barriers.
