A dental associate employee is a real employee of the dental practice and enjoys all of the same benefits that full time employees get. This may include medical benefits, vacation time, holiday time, sick time and perhaps retirement contributions. The primary benefit to a dental associate is that the dental practice, not the dental associate, pays the self employment taxes since the dental associate is not an dental independent contractor. It's not called self employment taxes when you are an employee but it still exists and still must be paid by the dental practice, not the associate. The dental practice pays this as payroll taxes.
