Buying a Dental Practice Takes Patience

More like purchasing the home of your dreams, buying a dental practice is a major transition and will probably be one of the biggest that you ever make. If you don’t have an experienced dental brokerage firm behind you, you just might make a huge mistake that could affect the rest of your life.

Just like buying a home, you need to have your checklist in order. Ask yourself the tough questions and you will be closer to buying a dental practice.

What You Need to Know About Buying a Dental Practice

Most dentists who are buying a dental practice are not experienced in negotiations. Dr. Bill Blatchford and his daughter Dr. Christina Blatchford have bought and sold their own practices in the past and know how to help you through the process.

There is more to signing on the dotted line if you are buying a dental practice. Before you start the hunt, you will need to let your broker know what you are looking for.

If you do not intend to keep the selling dentist on the payroll after the sale, you had better let your dental broker know about it. If you don’t, you will be wasting your time and the time of the person who is selling the dental practice.
