A dental associate is a dentist who works with a dental practice but is not an owner. This type of association is especially advantageous to new dentists who need a nuturing evironment after graduating from dental school. It is a legal relationship between a dental practice and an associate dentist that usually involves a dental associate contract which specifically defines this working relationship and its mutual obligations.
The dental associate may be an dental independent contractor or an employee of the dental practice. It is almost always better for the dental associate to be an employee.
