What is a Dental Office Lease?

A dental office lease is a type of commercial lease agreement a dental practice owner will sign with a landlord to rent the commercial space needed to run their dental practice. This type of lease will typically last for 5 to 10 years since there may need to be a significant investment in the buildout of the space and equipment.

Dental lawyers specialize in helping the owners of dental practices, including reviewing their commercial lease and handling contract negotiation.

Common Terms in a Dental Office Lease

Dental office leases can vary based on their terms, but below are some common terms you may find:

Rental Amount and Increases

This section will outline the monthly rent amount as well as outline rent increases that may be part of the contract.

Term of the Lease

This section will cover how long the lease will last, which is typically between 5 to 10 years for a dental practice.

Improvements and Modifications

This section will cover how the tenant can make modifications and improvements to the space. Given dentist offices typically require a lot of custom buildouts and equipment, this section of the dental office lease is particularly important.

Maintenance and Repairs

This section will cover who is responsible for making repairs and maintaining the office space. This is also important given the uniqueness of dental equipment and facilities.

Insurance and Liability

This section will outline the insurance requirements for the tenant and landlord. This may include malpractice insurance, property insurance, and general liability insurance. The landlord will want to require insurance to make sure the dental practice is covered and can continue to pay rent in case of any accidents or issues.

Compliance

This section will ensure the tenant complies with any relevant regulations, like HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability) and health and safety regulations.

Quick, user friendly and one of the better ways I've come across to get ahold of lawyers willing to take new clients.

View Trustpilot Review

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
