Buyer Rep

Practice brokers have traditionally represented sellers in the transfer of practice ownership. The buyer was left to fend for himself in the evaluation and negotiation of a purchase. Even though accountants and attorneys assisted in the process, they frequently were unfamiliar in dealing with the unique nature of dental practices. The purchase of a practice is a major undertaking. You need an expert on your team who knows how to:

  • Value a practice
  • Evaluate proposals for buy-ins including Income Splitting
  • Negotiate a transaction
  • Arrange financing (frequently 100%)
  • Provide your attorney with a sample Agreement of Sale
  • Plan a smooth transition including sample patient letters
  • Provide answers to the many questions you will have
