Could a dental hygienist open a practice as a partner with a dentist?

In my state it is not legal to open an independent hygiene practice, nor do I want to do that. I want to open a practice where myself and 2 other hygienists are in charge of everything except dentistry. I want to find a dentist to partner with us but understand we are in charge of the office decisions except when it comes to dentistry. Is this insane??

This is not an insane idea! However, if you are unable to open an independent dental hygiene practice in your state, your state might also have regulations on who can open or own a dental practice. Many states require practices to be owned by dentists. Check your state’s Dental Practice Act or contact your state’s Dental Board as they are the regulatory body that makes the rules and regulations. It’s always best to ask the source directly!
