EP44 Dental Business Law – Interview with Robert Larson

In this episode, Mike chats with Dental Attorney, Robert Larson. Based in the State of New York, Robert has spent the past ten years exclusively representing dentists and other healthcare professionals in all areas of transactional law.

Robert wasn’t always a lawyer, in fact, he started his career as a nurse and remains a licensed healthcare professional. Robert worked in various fields including ICU/CCU, ortho trauma, long-term Alzheimer’s care, and office nursing.

Mr Larson explains why he studied to become an attorney, and how he got his first law job working in the back of an Orthodontic clinic. Robert very quickly focused his practice on helping dentists, but sometimes assists other healthcare businesses such as optometrists.

Robert believes his background in nursing has had a positive impact on his law career.

He then explains exactly what transactional law covers, and walks us through the various steps of buying or starting a dental practice from a legal standpoint.

Towards the end, Robert makes the case for working with a dental-focused attorney rather than a general lawyer. Some of the benefits include reduced costs and time savings because an attorney specializing in dentistry already understands the industry, and avoiding potentially expensive mistakes.

Finally, Robert shares his number one piece of advice for anyone thinking about buying or starting their own dental practice.

Last year, we phoned over 100 dental practices to understand how receptionists handle patient calls, and we were SHOCKED by the results.

Based on what we learnt, we put together the Dental Receptionist Greeting Script to help receptionists make the best first impression and increase the likelihood of turning a complete stranger into a patient.
