Setting up a new dental office in Florida is a challenge and it can be very costly. The CPR School is here to help you make establishing a new Florida dental practice a little easier and a bit less expensive.
SETTING UP YOUR FLORIDA DENTAL PRACTICE:
You will encounter at least 3 and possibly 4 different levels of government when you are setting up your Florida dental office. Local (city or town), County, Florida State and Federal US government agencies. Dental professionals are often required to apply for various licenses and permits in order to practice dentistry in Florida. These rules typically apply to brand new dental offices as well as moving your existing office
FLORIDA - CITY AND COUNTY Dentists should contact the city and county (county clerk of the court) for information about any licensees required to open a dental office.
CPR AED Training – We offer CPR AED training certification classes for dental professionals. We also offer the Bloodborne Pathogens training certification classes. We can travel to your Florida dental office or you can attend a class at our Jupiter, Florida training site. Please call 561-762-0500 to schedule a class.
Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) - We sell Automated External Defibrillators for Florida dental offices and we sell them for less than the competition. Don't over pay, and don't buy the wrong AED. Buying your AED from the same company that sells office chairs is not a wise move. Buy from a company that specializes in AEDs and know which AEDs work best in Florida dental offices.

TIP – When starting a new dental practice much time will be devoted to growing the business. I suggest interviewing several accountants and find one that is responsive to your needs. Ideally the accountant will be familiar with dental offices and will help you with all of your tax issues as well as helping you setup a retirement plan for yourself. It’s never to early to start planning.
