Okay, I’m interested in your services. What’s the next step?
We can have a chat on the phone and then set up a meet and greet. I will bring pertinent information like my dental license, malpractice insurance, federal and state narcotics certificates, my CV and such. You can give me a tour of your office so I can get a feel for the “lay of the land” and see if there is anything additional I might need to bring.
We can also talk about financial arrangements. I am an independent contractor rather than an employee or associate, so there is no need to take out Federal and State Withholding, Social Security, and Medicare. (And no need to match the 6% for SS and Medicare.)
