The Business of Dental Practice Transitions


Buying or selling any business is stressful. Buyers worry about financing and finding the right property while sellers worry about finding the perfect buyer at the right price.

Dental transitions takes selling or buying a business one-step further as the process is much more complicated on both sides of the coin.

Planning Your Dental Practice Transition

Dental practice transitions take planning. Regardless of where you are in the process, a solid plan is an essential part of the dental practice transition. Without a solid plan, you are wasting time and energy. A dental brokerage firm takes the stress out of dental practice transitions so that you can get on with the business of running your life.

Dr. Bill Blatchford and Dr. Christina Blatchford started Blatchford Transitions because they saw a lack of experienced dental brokerage firms. Since that time, dozens of dental brokerage firms have popped up on the internet, but most split their time between selling office buildings downtown and dental practice brokering.

An Experienced Dental Practice Transition Team

Both Dr. Bill Blatchford and his daughter Dr. Christina Blatchford have had their share of dental practice transitions as has the Blatchford Transitions team, but it’s not just dental transitions that they have experienced.

As practicing dentists, the Blatchford’s understand the business of dentistry. Add dental coaching to the list and you have the most experienced dental brokerage firm on the planet.

Why Experience Matters

Both buying and selling a dental practice takes experience. If you haven’t asked yourself the right questions, such as considering staying on after you sell, or dealing with a dentist who has decided to stay, it’s time to call an experienced dental. Have a chat with a dentist who bought a practice from a dentist who has overstayed his or her welcome and you won’t hesitate picking up the phone.

Blatchford Transitions have seen all of the scenarios and have the experience to guide you through the buying or selling process.
