The Trials and Tribulations of a Dental Transition


If you are ready to retire, but don’t know where to start it’s time to call Blatchford Transitions.


Blatchford Transitions are practicing dentists and dental coaches who understand the trials and tribulations of a dental transition. From structuring to the outcome, Dr. Bill Blatchford and daughter Dr. Christina Blatchford created Blatchford Transitions to fill the void.

A Transition that You Can Count On

Retiring from something that you have been doing your entire life is tough. Of course, you will have doubts during the process. Do you have enough money to live comfortably for the rest of your life, or will your practice sale leave you with less than you had anticipated? Knowing the answer to those questions is the first step in your dental transition.

Blatchford Transitions will help you answer the tough questions that you have been avoiding. If your retirement plan is something that you have put on the backburner for the last decade, it’s time to put it back on the stove.

The team from Blatchford Transitions recommends that you start your retirement plan at least five years before you plan to sell, ten years is even better as you can work out the kinks before you sell your dental practice.

Have a Solid Plan for Retirement

Of course, you don’t have to know what you are going to do with the rest of your life every second of the day, but you do need to have a plan that will secure you and your family. Living the life you are accustomed to, takes planning.

Because Blatchford Transitions are also dental coaches, you can boost your bottom line and increase the worth of your dental practice. If you are currently open 5 days a week every other Saturday, you will have a hard time selling your dental practice.

Blatchford Solutions has dental management systems that allow you and your team more vacation time. With bonus systems and block booking, you’ll work three days a week for more money, which is certainly more attractive to a potential buyer than working five days a week for less.

Plan Your Dental Transition Before You Retire

Regardless of when you retire, a solid plan is essential. Get help with yours and call Blatchford Transitions today.
