Well, it's certainly interesting. I don't know that it is "strong" on its face, but there is a way to build out a strong career narrative. The key will be taking a decisive approach. Managing dental clinics is one way to go. Another would be getting into consulting - a field that needs a lot of people with understanding of patient practice, insurance, etc. Either way, you will want to pick one and really build around that, because an MBA is all about showing necessity.
The other big key will be showing the transferable skills. Being able to perform a root canal doesn't do anything for you. Neither does the years and years of course work. What gives you a meaningful pre-MBA platform are the management, accounting, and marketing skills that you've had to employ to run a business. You take those transferable skills, use them to show that you have the ingredients to go to the next level as a leader, and then explain how the MBA builds the bridge.
A lot of folks in and around the edges of the MBA universe get it in their head that doctors, lawyers, and, yes, dentists aren't a good fit for a b school, but that's not true. Neither is it true that there is something magical about coming from one of these professional sectors. It call comes down to existing skills and future goals.
