Protecting Dentists Since 1984

Dentistry is unique. It has its own laws, rules, and regulations which are distinct from those applicable to the medical profession and other industries. Dentists also face unique risks related to financing, transactions, insurance payors, government entities, competition, and more. These issues need to be well-explained and understood to avoid and mitigate unnecessary risk. Wood and Delgado is one of the only law firms in the country dedicated to understanding these issues and representing private practice dentists and dental groups. 

Wood and Delgado provides NATIONWIDE REPRESENTATION to a vast number of dentists and other medical professionals. If you are looking for highly experienced and qualified dental transaction experts, Wood and Delgado is the firm for you!
