Dentistry is certainly an ever-changing profession. Technology and innovation has made it possible for General Dentists to offer their patients more of what they want, all in one location.

Introducing VIPS Dental

The Virtual Innovative Practice Systems (VIPS) dental associateship model provides an opportunity to offer patients basic oral surgical procedures, such as wisdom teeth extraction, right in the familiarity of their regular General Dental office.

In contrast to a traditional associate model, the VIPS mobile dentist provides surgical and sedation services on an as-needed basis for participating General Dentistry practices.  Since the surgical services part of the practice only functions when patients need it, it grows as the practice grows.  There is no pressure to keep a full-time associate busy, no contracts and no disruption of daily patient flow.

A Win for Patients, a Win for Dentists

In a relationship-based general dental practice, patients win with a VIPS mobile dentist.  Dental patients want all of their treatment to be done where they are most comfortable- their dentist office.  No longer is a referral required to leave the office, establish with a new doctor, undergo a series of consultation and treatment appointments somewhere else.

Staying in the familiar surroundings of their regular dental office for routine surgical treatment, patients have more confidence, less hesitation about undergoing needed treatment, and appreciate having these services readily available.

For the General Dentist, the VIPS model lowers overhead costs and increases the market share without the need for continually growing the number of procedures performed by a single dentist.  The financial benefits to the dental office grow along with the practice.
