What is a DSO?

Dental Support Organizations (DSOs) contract with dental practices to provide critical business management and support including non-clinical operations. The creation of DSOs have allowed dentists to maximize their practice with the support of professional office management. The DSO model enables dentists to focus on the patient while delivering excellent dental care.

Technology & DSOs:

The DSO model has afforded many dentists the opportunity to use modern technology to provide high quality dental care to patients. ADSO’s member companies are always investing in cutting edge and novel technologies for the benefit of the patient. These technologies include radiography, in-office CAD/CAM, intraoral cameras, implants, online record keeping and scheduling.

Industry Excellence:

ADSO’s member companies are in the business of providing high quality management services to dentists seeking support in their non-clinical operations.

ADSO member organizations support a practice environment where dentists have the ability to choose the administrative services which best allows them to focus on patients, expand access to quality dental care and improve the oral health of their communities.

Our Vision: Support practice environment that focuses on patients.

Our mission is to support ADSO member companies and their teams through research, education and advocacy; enabling them to foster innovation, collaboration and a vibrant market where DSO-supported dentists can provide quality oral health care to their patients and to those in the underserved communities.

The Association of Dental Support Organizations (ADSO) is a non-profit organization comprised of more than 50 DSO member companies, several association partners and more than 180 industry partners. ADSO represents Dental Support Organizations (DSOs) before the public, policymakers and the media.

Our members enable supported dentists to focus on their patients and expand access for dental care while maintaining the highest standards of business and professional ethics. Our members operate in 44 states and provide the highest level of non-clinical support to more than 10,000 dentists across the country as well as in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

DSO-supported dentists, on average, have lower startup costs for a new practice, spend more time on clinical care within their practice than their non-DSO supported counterparts, and offer more flexible office hours for their patients. ADSO is the source of information regarding the role DSOs play in the evolving dental services marketplace.
