This presentation provides a broad overview of the structure of dental practice sales and the impact upon employment relationships. Particular attention is paid to share purchase deals versus asset purchase deals, and the corresponding impact upon dental hygienists. Given the possibility that a dental hygienist could be terminated following the sale of a dental practice, their termination entitlements are also examined.
