Dental Associate Contract

Texas

Asked on Jun 9, 2024

What are the key elements to consider when reviewing a dental associate contract?

I am a dentist who has been offered a dental associate position at a private practice, and I am seeking legal advice regarding the key elements I should be aware of when reviewing the dental associate contract. I want to ensure that the terms of the contract are fair and reasonable, and that they protect my rights and interests as an associate. Additionally, I would like to understand any potential implications or restrictions within the contract that may affect my future career opportunities or potential for growth within the dental industry.

There are many complex issues to review in a contract of this type and I've found that the employment agreements given to medical professionals are frequently very one-sided to the benefit of the employer with complex non-compete and non-solicit restrictions. The things that should be outlined include the job responsibilities, compensation (including bonus strux), benefits, and probably most importantly termination provisions that outline compensation for termination without cause and what constitutes cause. Lastly, I alway recommend a dispute resolution process that involves mediation and arbitration rather than the courts.
