“Today dentists are holding tightly on to the past, hoping that things will get better. But it’s not going to get better,” Dr. Cooper said. “The changes that are occurring are dramatic and irreversible. When was the last time you saw a pay phone? It’s been a while, right? So what happened? It’s outdated. The current way solo docs are practicing dentistry will soon be outdated. They can’t practice like they did yesterday. What’s going to occur is that the economy and the dental healthcare system are going to call for a greater capacity to treat more patients more efficiently, which simply can’t be done within the solo practice model.”
