What is the typical profit margin for a dentist office?
You should also consider the overall profitability of the practice. The profit margin of the dental practice you’re considering should be at least 40%. A 40% profit margin (or 60% overhead) is close to the average profitability of dental practices in the US.
Can you own a dental office without being a dentist?
