Benefits for Our Dentists
When you become a dentist with MDP, you’ll enjoy clinical autonomy along with a wealth of benefits. These include free internal clinical education courses on various dental specialties, like implants, clear aligners, endodontics, oral surgery and more. New providers also receive an initial period of guaranteed income as they settle into their practice during the credentialing period, after which they earn a healthy percentage of net collections. MDP dentists are also owners in our organization, automatically through our employee stock ownership plan, and, if they choose, through any direct stock purchases.

- Clinical Autonomy.
Just as they would in private practice, doctors with Mortenson Dental Partners have the autonomy to create their own treatment plans and make clinical decisions that are in the best interest of their patients.
- Competitive Benefits.
MDP’s benefits include malpractice insurance; health, vision and disability insurance; 401K; paid time off and more!
- Comprehensive Support Center.
Comprehensive Support Center.
From Human Resources, Marketing and Credentialing to Legal, Information Technology, Insurance Services and more, our Support Center provides expertise in a variety of business areas so our clinical teams can focus on patient care.

Continuing Education and Career Development.
We give our providers the resources they need for exceptional patient care and positive leadership. For example, our Top Docs program is a live learning experience that provides 72 CE hours over six engaging sessions, covering topics like endodontics, implants, clear aligners, oral surgery, cosmetics, sleep apnea and more. In addition to our many internal education opportunities, all MDP doctors receive funds annually that they can put toward external clinical education. As well, our Hire to Retire initiative gives providers a customized doctor development path to grow their career from the time they sign on to retirement.

- Generous Compensation, Profit Sharing and Ownership.
Generous Compensation, Profit Sharing and Ownership.
Our compensation model is founded on creating both short- and long-term wealth. The primary components include:
- Guaranteed compensation. There is an initial period of guaranteed income as a doctor gets settled into the practice during the credentialing period.
- Net collections. Upon completion of the guaranteed compensation period, general dentists receive a healthy percentage of net collections.
- Company-level profit sharing. Through our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), shares of the company stock are invested into a retirement account for each team member.
- Direct stock ownership. We provide eligible doctors with opportunities to purchase additional stock in the organization.
