Contracts: Can You Read Their Language? What Every New Dentist Needs to Know

As the “By Dentists, For Dentists”® company, EDIC continues to listen to our dental students and young dentists to help provide them with the tools they need to become better practitioners. In the past few months we have had numerous dental students come to us with questions pertaining to employment contracts, non-compete contracts, equipment lease contracts, and how to negotiate employment agreements. We have teamed up with two attorneys from Barton Gilman LLP to provide our young dentists an exclusive 1-night only live webinar to discuss these questions and to also provide a platform for them to interact with a Q&A session at the end of the presentation.

The students asked and EDIC delivered. Every new dentist needs to take this webinar before signing any contracts.

Tuesday, March 29, 2016 7pm – 9pm

This course will provide an overview of employment contracts, their relationship with the employment-at-will doctrine, and important provisions contained therein. For example, we will cover non-compete agreements, employee misclassification, arbitration provisions, termination clauses, and appropriate performance measures. We will also discuss the pitfalls of not carefully reviewing-and negotiating-employment agreements prior to entering into them. This course is designed for dentists opening their first practice, joining another dentist’s practice, or looking to make a career move.

All registered participants will have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A Session in the last portion of the presentation.
