    Dental Econonmics 101: Hire competent and ethical dentists and supervise offices to insure patients receive the care mandated by the State of California Dental Board or there is no license, no business, no practice. The dentist/owner with many offices should always remember the old saying 'When the cat is away the mice will play' or worse. It only takes one incompetent or unethical dentist hired by owner/dentist to result in problems.
