Hello there! I am a full time in office removable lab tech. I have several doctors outside of the practice that are interested in me doing their work. I love my day job and have no intentions of opening my own lab and quitting my regular paycheck. However, I am open to doing some cases on the side at my house. I want to make sure I am doing this legally. I doubt it is more than a few cases per month. I live in NC where there aren't any regulations that I am aware of except material and subcontractor disclosures. Do I need to apply for a business license or can the client just 1099 me at the end of the year. I just want to make sure I am doing this correctly. Also, do I need to be a business to order supplies from dental suppliers or can I do it personally as a lab tech. If you have any supplies and equipment to sell I may be interested. Thanks in advance!
