These agreements may also have greater legal implications. Dental Professionals should carefully assess these offers and bargain for any limiting clauses, such as a transfer of ownership of patient charts, non-solicitation provisions and most importantly non-compete clauses. In almost every scenario before signing a contract, it is highly encouraged to discuss the contract with an attorney.
