Since he began working with BestCare Family Dental, Steven Eidman, D.D.S., has helped the company staff and market their newly renovated office, which has led to their income tripling.

Meaning “Voice of the Soul,” Kol HaNeshamah was established in 1997 as Englewood’s and Tenafly’s only Conservative, egalitarian synagogue. Located on the grounds of St. Paul’s church, Kol HaNeshamah is an egalitarian synagogue that follows a small group style.

The synagogue holds Shabbat services that are highly engaging with discussion, prayer, and readings from the Torah. Rabbi Fred Elias participates with members in offering teachings and chanting from the Torah during these services. Giving prominence to the concept of “tikkun olam” (healing the world), members of Kol HaNeshamah volunteer their time delivering food to the homeless, working at shelters, and visiting nursing homes on many occasions. Kol HaNeshamah also offers several classes and events to adults, children, and teenagers to support further Jewish learning.


Dr. Steven Eidman: Legal Requirements for Opening a Dental Practice

A management consultant for BestCare Family Dental, Dr. Steven Eidman provides advice on best practices in staffing, marketing, systems administration, and other aspects of practice coordination. Since accepting this position in 2008, he has introduced programs and staffing initiatives that have tripled the practice’s revenues.

According to the American Dental Association, nearly ¾ of dental practitioners choose to open a solo practice. This requires not only clinical expertise, but also compliance with a variety of local, state, and federal regulations. New dental practitioners must possess a state license to practice as well as a National Provider Identification (NPI), acquired through the National Plan & Provider Enumeration System (NPPES).

Furthermore, the practice owner must ensure compliance with all relevant medical and drug regulations. For example, a practice must comply with the infection control regulations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as all waste management laws at the state and local levels. A practice that distributes or uses anesthesia and other drugs in-office may be required to secure relevant permits, depending on applicable laws, and all staff practices must comply with federal job safety requirements. More information is available through the American Dental Association as well as other relevant government organizations.
