How the Partnership Works

COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIPS
BUILT ON ALIGNED INCENTIVES

At Oral Surgery Partners, our primary mission is to empower oral surgery practices to achieve their business goals. We understand that your practice and your goals are unique, and we design our services accordingly.

Our team delivers consistent support services that are on par with those offered by leading corporate oral surgery centers, applied with a personalized strategy. 

Through our partnership process, we demonstrate our range of vital support services and discover ideal plans for our partners to enhance their practices.

How It Works

Through the five-step process, OSP will get to know the ins and outs of your organization. We develop a plan of action, targeting your organizational goals. This process is collaborative and we maintain a high level of communication throughout.

Step 1

Non-Disclosure Agreement

At the onset of the process, a non-disclosure agreement enables open research and, evaluations. This confidentiality safeguards the partnership process.

Step 2

Preliminary Financial Review & Evaluation

We ensure the partnership agreement is equitable and based on accurate data. This step gives us an even better understanding of your practice and goals.

Step 3

Letter of Intent (LOI)

The letter of intent is a non-binding document that designates the terms of a potential partnership between OSP and your practice. This step sets clear expectations for everyone involved.

Step 4

Confirmatory Due Diligence

Onsite and offsite confirmatory assessments help us move toward a final agreement. These include accounting, legal, and other expert evaluations.

Step 5

Definitive Agreements

Once terms are agreed upon by both parties, a definitive agreement is signed. At this point, the OSP team begins its work providing industry leading management services to your practice.
