Cost Of Starting A Dental Practice

Before starting a dental practice, it is important to understand the clinical side of a dentistry as well as the business side. That includes how much it will cost to start your own practice and how you will handle a wide range of administrative tasks, such as accounting, marketing and recruiting. 

Average Cost of Opening a Dental Practice

The average cost of starting a dental practice is $350,000 to $550,000. The reason the range between these two numbers is so large is because the cost of opening a practice varies widely based on the practice's region and square footage.

Unsurprisingly, starting a large practice costs more than starting a small practice, as it requires more space, equipment and people to function. Similarly, opening a dental practice in a high cost region (like Manhattan, Chicago or Los Angeles) will cost you more than opening a practice in a low cost region.
