Be an entrepreneur

Financial Advantages

  • Diverse patient pool.
  • Lower capital investment for new practice
  • Lower operational costs.
  • Better insurance plans.

Realise the future growth potential of your business. With increasing costs of businesses and real estate, settling in a rural or remote community can be a very viable financial decision. Apart from significantly lower living expenses, higher need for dental treatment in such areas guarantees good potential for practices to flourish. Therefore, buying a dental practice here can prove to be a great bargain (Régie de l’assurance maladie Québec, 2008). As insurance coverage is also more comprehensive, undertaking the recommended treatment plan for the patients may not pose many challenges either (Williams. J, 2008).
