Hygienist & Therapist Contracts

Dentists, their associates and their hygienists should always formalise their working relationship in a written agreement.

This not only makes everyone aware of their rights and responsibilities, and sets out how any disputes would be settled, it also provides evidence of the terms of the relationship if there are ever any internal or external disputes, investigations or enquiries.

A properly drafted agreement should cover subjects including financial arrangements, bad debts, goodwill, dispute resolution and an exit strategy.

An agreement copied from another practice might not be entirely relevant, or provide adequate safeguards, for your specific practice and its associates/hygienists. NHS, private, mixed and specialist cosmetic or restorative practices all need their own distinct type of agreement.

As with associates, the majority of hygienists in general practice work on a self-employed basis on similar principles to associates. It is therefore vitally important to have a formal written agreement in place drafted by an expert dental solicitor.

For more help and advice with hygienist and therapist contracts, please contact the dental law team on 01283 526200, alternatively you can send us a message and one of our specialist solicitors will be in touch.
