    This is a silly proposal. Most dentists are self-employed or quasi-self-employed being employees of their own dental corporation. For those dentists, union membership does not get them any bargaining power through a union. Attempts by independent dentists to collude against insurance companies violate anti-trust laws, even if they call themselves a union. Unionization of dentists who are legitimately employees of some other business entity can unionize and collectively bargain. In fact, there is a union that has been doing that for decades: The union of American Physicians and Dentists. See http://www.seedwiki.com/wiki/uapd/why_doctors_need_unions .

  • We dentists are unionized. It’s called a license. IMHO licensing, credentialing, certifications, etc are huge impediments to health care reform, prosperity in our industry and universal dental health (not “care”).

    1) Eliminate, “Fee-for-Service”.

    2) Strike down state laws restricting health care practice AND insurance as an unnecessary restraints of trade no longer in the public interest.

    3) And…, the doctor needs a boss.
