There are different technical/legal things in each state, but
essentially you can become a company which protects your personal
assets (e.g. house, savings) from legal predation. Your physician
and dentist are probably "limited liability" entities....so check
locally. A full blown nonprofit can pay salaries, but under all
kinds of restrictions, etc. Others on the list must know a lot more
than me about nonprofit status.
