Is This Right For Me?

If these statements sound like you, the Mentorship-to-Ownership transition path may be a great way to ensure your practice thrives after you retire.

It’s time for me to take a step back

I’m ready to step away from clinical dentistry but want to take a little more time to guide the transition of the other aspects of the practice.

I’m willing and able to mentor and train my replacement

I look forward to training my mentee on the business aspects of running a practice as well as on clinical skills so that when it’s time to step away, I know my practice is in good hands.

My practice is the perfect candidate for Mentorship-to-Ownership

My practice has the patient volume for one dentist, and I don’t think it’s an “easy” sell.

I’m thinking about the continuity of care for my patients

Rather than selling my practice and entrusting my patients to an unknown buyer, I want my replacement to slowly take over.         

This financially makes sense for me

My practice can handle having a new dentist come on and earn an income during the mentorship period.
