Buying a Dental Practice Step by Step

buying a dental practiceBuying a dental practice has many advantages over setting up a new practice. Instead of starting from scratch and making those early business mistakes while learning, you can buy an existing practice with a clear track record. Everything is transparent and easy for you to evaluate, with the supporting documents and the help of professional advisors. At Menlo Dental Transitions, we have the experience to guide you through all the steps of buying a dental practice. We will help get you settled with a good patient base in a professional office so you can concentrate on what you do best—dentistry.

Start with the Right Location

This may sound too simple to be a first step in buying a dental practice, but it is important for long-term success. Having a great location can help you draw from and maintain an ideal patient base. And, if you choose a place that is reasonably close to home, it just adds to the convenience of getting to work. While narrowing down your location choice is something you certainly can do on your own, you will most likely find greater success when teaming with professionals who have a handle on the market. That’s where Menlo Dental Transitions comes in.

We are well connected and trusted by many in the industry to ensure smooth dental transitions, on both the buying and selling side.

Find the Ideal Practice

A lot goes in to finding the right dental practice to buy. Doing your due diligence when buying a dental practice takes meticulous examination. You want to make sure that the practice has a good reputation, that patients are well cared for, that the financials and equipment are in good order, and that the staff is competent and happy with their work. This can take some time, but it is well worth the effort. When you have experienced professionals working with you on this process, you can quickly determine–step by step–if buying a particular dental practice makes sense.
