You may believe that DSOs are less vulnerable to embezzlement than solo or smaller group practices, but it is in fact a significant industry-wide issue.
While it is easy to understand the vulnerability of solo and small group practices to embezzlement, it is tempting to believe that dental support organizations, which generally have better controls, professional management, and centralized services, should be less prone to be victimized.

This article will discuss why and how embezzlement takes place in DSOs and will offer some suggestions to minimize vulnerability.
