Birner Dental Management Services, Inc., was incorporated as a Colorado corporation in May 1995. The Company is a dental business service organization servicing geographically dense dental practice networks in select markets, currently including Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. It provides business services, which are designed to improve the efficiency and profitability of the dental practices. The Company currently provides business services to 65 Offices, of which 37 were acquired and 28 were developed internally. The Company provides a solution to the needs of dentists, patients and third-party payers by allowing the Company's affiliated dentists to provide high-quality, efficient dental care in patient-friendly, family practice settings. Dentists practicing at the various locations provide general dentistry services, and the company offers specialty dental services through affiliated specialists at some of its locations. The Company has developed a formalized training program for non-dental employees, which is conducted by the company's staff. This program includes training in patient interaction, scheduling, use of computer systems, office procedures and protocols, and third-party payment arrangements. The Company also offers formalized mandatory training programs for employees regarding occupational safety and environmental issues, state dental practice law, state and local regulations, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ("HIPAA") to ensure compliance with government regulations. Its payors include indemnity insurers, preferred provider plans, managed dental care plans, and uninsured cash patients. The Company competes with other providers of dental and specialty services on the basis of factors such as brand name recognition, convenience, cost and the quality and range of services provided. Competition includes practitioners who have more established practices and reputations. The practice of dentistry is regulated at both the state and federal levels.
