terms and conditions of this Agreement.


     NOW THEREFORE,   in   consideration   of the mutual covenants herein contained

and each made to the other, the parties do hereby agree as follows:


1. Recitals. The foregoing recitals are true and are incorporated herein.


2. Services to be Rendered.   The   Subcontractor   shall perform general dentistry

services to the best of its abilities and to the Company's satisfaction.


3. Independent Contractor Status.


a.   The   Subcontractor   expressly   acknowledges   that it will   be   acting   as an

independent   contractor   and not as an   employee,   for all   purposes,   including

payment of Social Security and Medicare withholding taxes and all other Federal,

state and local taxes (collectively referred to as "Taxes").


b. In the event Taxes are assessed in any manner against the Company, and all or

part of the assessment   results from the   reclassification   of the Subcontractor

from an   independent   contractor to an employee,   then the   Subcontractor   shall

reimbursement the Company to the full extent that such increase in Taxes and all

penalties and interest thereof is attributable to such reclassification.


c. The taxpayer identification number for the Subcontractor is 65-0628711.


d.   The   Subcontractor   shall   be free to set its   own   hours   and   appointments

provided, however, that subcontractor shall render services for two and one-half

days each   calendar   week and that   subcontractor   shall   provide   company   with

fourteen (14) days' advance notice for any absence due to vacation, professional

or other personal time needed.


4.   Performance   of    Subcontractor.    All   work   performed    hereunder   by   the

Subcontractor   shall   be of the   standards   of the   State   of   Florida   Board of

shall be paid to the Subcontractor on said Friday of such 7-day period.


6.   Noncompetition.   The Company has   retained   the   Subcontractor   only for the

indirectly, enter into, or in any manner take part in, any business, profession,

or other endeavor except as prohibited under Paragraph 9 hereof.


7. Severability. If any provision,   paragraph, or subparagraph of this Agreement

declared to be separable from every other provision, paragraph, and subparagraph
