Dentists owning a practice have the added responsibility of being an employer. If people work for you, you have responsibilities to the state and federal governments, including state and federal taxes, state and federal unemployment insurance, worker's compensation along with health and safety standards.
As an MDA member, you have exclusive access to a variety of HR services from the MDA. These services include:
» Quick answers to your HR questions from MDA staff — call 800-589-2632 or email the MDA.
» In-depth consultation services from a certified human resources professional (the first half-hour of this service is at no charge).
» A database of legal opinions on human resources issues.
» The MDA’s Staff Matters Human Resource System for dental offices.
» Employee benefits information and member programs through MDA Insurance and MDA Services.
