A dental partnership contract is signed between two or more dentists who combine their practises into one, that is, they may share one office and work along with each other. Although they may have separate patient lists and income, they share the expenses like paying for the rent of the clinic, employee salaries, equipment costs or utility bills, and the contract helps to lay down these terms.
