Your Only Way to Dental
The Floss Model is Built to Perform
All the Reasons to Franchise
We have never met a doctor whose first inclination was to put another name on their practice. One thing every dentist has in common — they all have a lot of time and hard work invested in getting to where they are today. The idea of sharing profits often also often comes with giving up years of sweat equity. There has to be a lot of reasons to operate your practice under another brand name, especially when a capital outlay to do so is also involved.
For so many dentists, the FLOSS brand is an easy investment. Although FLOSS franchise owners all lean on the corporation on varying levels, the company provides a full service to help ensure the success of every unit carrying the brand name. Our turnkey suite includes finding office location(s), lease negotiation, office build out (according to brand standards and design requirements), equipping offices and equipment training.
A Support System Anomaly
You could be investing in a popular fast food unit, or a retail location with baristas as employees. Point is, there are a lot of places to invest your money when it comes to franchising. Dental is a solid play in franchising, and FLOSS is a solid play in dental. The backbone the company has built to support its franchisees is what puts the company in a different league. The most successful franchising companies understand this is key.
Brand awareness and authority continues to grow in the marketplace with each quality representation of the brand as it is added market by market, nationwide. Ongoing effort will be made to ensure franchisees are properly trained and equipped to deliver the brand standards and identity across the brand’s footprint. Franchises get the tools they need to ensure success, and the corporate team at FLOSS built to help them when facing challenges.
The Simple Math
For those who are ready to receive all of the benefits of being a part of the FLOSS family, it starts with a one-time investment of $35K. This franchise fee is your price of entry to join the brand committed to doing dental better. A 3% royalty is paid by all FLOSS franchisees ongoing, which is used to support the brand’s commitment to leading the industry. Looking at this through the lens of the FLOSS model, the franchise and royalty fees are immediately recouped.
Our team saves you the cost of your franchise fee just in the initial equipment order and construction buildout of your office. The discount we are able to extend to our offices on Invisalign services alone covers the 3% royalty ongoing. Discounts on marketing and supplies ongoing more than eclipse the franchise and royalty fees you pay to get on hoard.
If you are just getting started, a turnkey startup package complete with a fully-equipped new FLOSS office location will add about $465K to the franchise fee investment. The franchise support team works with you every step of the way and have become experts at helping you ensure you create and launch a great new location that’s a perfect fit for the community you live and work in.
Accelerate Your Advance
Have you owned your practice but you have grown tired of losing profits on production. Would you like to offer your patients the latest services and technology, but you don’t ever feel like you can catch up to the investments required to do so? It is becoming more and more common for dentists to be a part of a larger dental group, but what if there was a better answer. FLOSS Dental created it.
Fact is, keeping up with the latest advances in the industry as fast as the industry is advancing is nearly impossible for an individual practice to keep up with any more. The pace at which the technology being used in the dental industry is advancing is only getting faster. When you are a part of the FLOSS network you enjoy the buying power of the larger group so that you can implement the latest technology sooner, and always keep your services fresh and new.
Independent Isn’t Better
We’ve already talked about why you should make your practice a FLOSS, and you wouldn’t be on this website if you weren’t considering making your practice a franchise. However, we would not be doing our due diligence on this page if we did not address a few critical points that are more true today than ever before. At one point, it was actually best to be an independently owned, boutique dental office.
Today, it just isn’t better to be on your own. If you operate as a single dental office independent of a larger ownership group or network, you might be able to provide the same services and technology larger entities are able to, but it costs you more. You don’t have a team of colleagues at your leisure that you can compare notes with so you can adjust and improve. You only have a single physical location supporting your brand awareness. The FLOSS way is better.
