Don’t Let Some Common Franchise Misconceptions Keep You From Opening a Dental Practice with FLOSS™

Suppose you’re wondering how to open a dental practice with FLOSS Dental™ (FLOSS). In that case, you’ll be glad to know ours is a straightforward process that’ll have you capitalizing on our robust industry quickly and efficiently. In general, the franchise model is a more streamlined way of doing business — so much so that today, there are over 750,000 franchise establishments in the US. This number speaks to the popularity and effectiveness of the model and the many benefits it offers — advantages that a FLOSS™ opportunity takes to the next level!

Unfortunately, numerous myths surrounding franchised businesses may keep you from considering an opportunity with FLOSS™. Let’s bust three of them right here.

It’s Too Risky

Starting any small business carries with it a certain amount of risk. But franchises are statistically less risky endeavors because of all the work a franchisor like FLOSS ™ has already invested in. Kinks have been worked out, best practices are in place, and the business model is a roadmap for franchisees to follow.

Of course, no brand can guarantee a franchisee’s ultimate success. But when you partner with a name like FLOSS Dental™ to navigate the ins and outs of opening a dental franchise, you capitalize on our comprehensive experience and deep knowledge of the industry. Having access to our resources takes a lot of the work and worry out of starting your practice, freeing you to focus on what matters most — being there for your community and growing your business!

You Won’t Have Freedom

A common myth about the franchisor/franchisee relationship is that the former won’t allow the latter the freedom to run things independently. Nothing could be further from the truth. While all franchise brands do have specific guidelines and procedures that franchisees must follow, the fact is that our business model allows for much individuality. You’ll be in charge of hiring staff, establishing schedules, and creating local marketing campaigns for your practice, among many other initiatives you’ll have the chance to lead. Furthermore, no two days will be alike; our comprehensive suite of services lets you meet the dental care needs of all ages as you forge meaningful relationships with the people in your community.

Allowing our franchisees to make crucial decisions on their own and run their practice with minimal interference (but with our ongoing support!) contributes to our brand’s overall success, so we make sure our franchisees have plenty of freedom.

You Need Industry Experience

Requiring investors to have a background in a brand’s industry is a common misconception and one that FLOSS™ addresses head-on. When you partner with us to open a dental practice, you’ll enjoy comprehensive pre-opening training and ongoing support that prepare you to leverage our industry to the fullest and keep you on track toward success. Some of the resources you’ll enjoy when you partner with FLOSS™ include:

  • A pre-opening training program that goes over just about everything you need to know to operate your practice smoothly
  • Our operations manual details recommended recruiting, hiring, risk management, staffing procedures, and more.
  • Opportunities for continued growth via access to conferences, webinars, conference calls, written modules, and other media
  • Sophisticated software that allows you to manage all aspects of your business, including patient intake, scheduling, and integrated payroll processing
  • And so much more!

The fact is, franchised businesses are some of the most beloved and thriving in the country, with thousands of them opening every year. They can represent a terrific opportunity to be in business for yourself but not by yourself — especially when you partner with a brand like FLOSS Dental™!
