Phase 1: Initial Analysis

This is the most important career decision you’ll make as a dentist.
We’ll help you get it right.

Practice Purchase Analysis™

Within 5 business days of sending us documents, you’ll get a ~30 page report to help you answer three big questions:  Is this a good practice to buy? If yes, what is a fair price to pay? If I pay that much, how much money will I make?

Your Tasks:

  • Send any documents you have on the practice
  • Review the Practice Purchase Analysis
  • Decide whether to put an offer on the practice

Our Tasks:

  • Complete the Practice Purchase Analysis ™
  • Make a recommendation on whether or not to move forward

Letter Of Intent

This is your offer to the seller. We’ll help you write, submit and (if necessary) negotiate the 
Letter of Intent.

Your Tasks:

  • Review and approve the Letter of Intent
  • Sign and send the Letter of Intent

Our Tasks:

  • Draft and review with you the Letter of Intent
  • Assist in any negotiations that arise

If you don’t like what you have found, you can redo Phase 1 as many times as needed. We are here for you until you find the perfect match.

Phase 2: Due Diligence

The second phase involves securing bank financing,
completing due diligence, and finalizing legal documents.

FAQs

When is the best time to hire you?

Most dentists engage us when they have a practice in mind to analyze. But you can reach out to us before that process, or anytime you need a second set of eyes to validate the numbers and your decision.

What if I don't buy the first practice I look at? Do your prices go up?

No. We’ll look at as many practices as needed to find the right practice for you and the fee never changes.

Do I have to hire both a CPA and you for the transition?

Nope. Between us and an attorney, you should be good to go. We act as the accountant throughout the transition and will help you transition to a full-time CPA to help with your taxes and bookkeeping once you become an owner.

Do you need to be in the same city as where I want to practice?

We have researched hundreds of practices in all 50 states and fortunately have been able to help clients all over the U.S. without needing to be physically present.

Pricing

My engagement is a flat-fee, regardless of the time it takes to close on your practice. The total fee is $10,000.
 
$5,000 (half) is due up front as a retainer. The remaining $5,000 is billed to your business after you own your practice.

 

There are no penalties to looking at one practice and deciding not to buy. The rate stays the same regardless of how long you take to search for the perfect practice.
