One must consider different factors when planning to set up a dental clinic. First of all, you have to make a business plan. The business plan includes the business goal, the reasons to consider that they are within reach, and the plan for realizing this goal. And then, you need to think about the finances for the facilities and machines you will need. You might need to make a bank loan. Or perhaps you've recently won a lotto draw, in such a case, it's already a done deal. When you decide to get a bank loan, you will be worrying about your payments. There is a short term accounts payable which is about as long as the operation cycle of the business which is about 12 months. The long term accounts payable takes more than this time, maybe about 2 years. The next thing is you have to find a good location for your clinic. Accessibility is the first thing you have to consider. Your location should be easily accessible from the street. If you have to go through an alley then climb four flights of stairs then that would be very difficult to find. You would have to put up a lot of signs with arrows pointing the way to your clinic. It would be a good location if pedestrians could easily see the entrance to the clinic from the sidewalk. A sign for your dental clinic that is positioned within the pedestrians' point of view would have a subliminal effect on them if they see it daily. When the time comes that they need to go to a dentist, their subconscious will lead them to that dental sign that they see everyday. Now, you need to consider your clinic's layout and orientation. With this, you will need to find an architect or an interior designer to plan this out. The entire area will be divided into the reception area, the operating room, and the dentist's office. The reception area is where the patients can wait for their turn. A reception counter with complete access to records, a personal computer, etc. should be there as well. Place a television set overhead and a rack full of magazines so that patients don't get bored while waiting. Your dental chair should be put in a place where you can easily move around. The sink's location should be easily accessible from the dentist's side of the dental chair. Place a lot of cabinets over and under the sink. Contact the accounts payable association if you have problems with your accounts payable. For those who are looking for accounts payable jobs you can do a research online or you can even look for organizations that can teach you.
