    Great legal/dental resource

    There are some questions that come up again and again, and now there's a book where I can go to find the answers. I especially liked the intro to employment law and all the sample agreements and contracts. I won't give up my attorney just yet, but I will walk into his office feeling more confident and knowledgable about legal issues affecting my dental practice.

    A great resource to have on hand when tricky situations arise

    This book is a must for every dental office. It will pay for itself if it saves you one phone call to your lawyer.
