New North Carolina law blocks corporations from taking over dental practices
from Gaston Gazette
Much to the delight of local dentists, North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue signed Senate Bill 655, also known as the dentistry management bill. Filed in April of last year, the bill is designed to protect the public from receiving inappropriate dental treatment from large dentistry management firms. The bill protects practicing dentists from being overpowered or manipulated by corporate management companies armed with Wall Street cash. Both the House and the Senate passed the bill with unanimous votes. The North Carolina Dental Society and Old North State Dental Society also supported the legislation.
