I read Dr. Tse`s article, "The Super-Solo Group Practice," in the September 1998 issue with enthusiasm. I was involved in what I thought was a "super-solo group practice" a few years ago. Dr. Tse was excited about this topic, and I was eager to find out how he had achieved his goal. Dr. Tse did a great job outlining the sequence of events that brought him to where he is today. He even asked the question: "So what exactly is the super-solo group practice and why does it answer so many needs?" He discussed many pros and cons. Unfortunately, he rapidly headed off on a tangent and never got back to answering his own question.
Please ask Dr. Tse to explain how it all works. He says, "The model is effective with 40 dentists in the group or with 4,000 dentists nationwide in the group." He states, "It has been a rewarding option" for "my more than 200 colleagues in our super-solo group." After reading the article, I found myself with too many unanswered questions. I only can assume that you know what you are talking about. Please, Dr. Tse, what is the model and how does your practice, with more than 200 colleagues, work? Please finish the story.
