Just the other day I was thinking about expanding my practice. For instance bringing in a partner or opening another satellite office. It dawned on me that I am suited very well for an individual/solo oral surgery practice other than a group practice.
When patients visit my office for a consultation I am the oral surgeon that informs them of their surgery and what to expect. As the only doctor in the practice, my patients are assured that I will be the surgeon performing the operation. This is reassuring to the patients as most don’t want the shock of going in for their surgery after a consult and having a different doctor performing their operation. A comfort level has been established between me and my patients that I take pride in maintaining throughout their visits and experiences at my office!
