Don’t Ghost: How to Build a Strong Professional Reputation

Posted by Betsy Krekling, ADA Advisor on 11/17/21 8:30 AM

“It seemed like a great interview, but I never heard from him again.”

“She said she would let me know her next steps, but it’s been three weeks.”

I hear comments like this from owner dentists all too often! As an ADA Advisor, I suggest potential matches between practice owners (who are selling or hiring) and incoming dentists (who are buying or job hunting). Then I coach them through the process. 

Some of the younger dentists I work with defend their lack of response, saying they didn’t want to “lead on” a potential employer or seller. Or there was something they didn’t like about the practice — the dated décor, the commute, the owner themselves — and they don’t want to say so, for fear of being rude.

How to Build a Team for Your Successful Dental Practice Transition

Posted by Betsy Krekling, ADA Advisor on 11/3/21 7:45 AM

Are you staring at your to-do list, wondering how you can ever get through your practice transition?

You don’t have to go it alone. Build a team of professionals who can help you with the more technical or complex aspects of your transition. That will free up your time and energy to focus on the most important aspect of your transition: finding the right person to carry on your legacy or the right practice for your goals. (And we at ADA Practice Transitions (ADAPT) can help you with that part!)

In my work at ADAPT, I sometimes hear a dentist say that they want to save money by doing the legal themselves, just adjusting a colleague’s contract. Or maybe they plan to enlist their brother-in-law/cousin/neighbor’s best friend as their real estate broker. While I applaud that DIY attitude, it can lead to expensive mistakes, missed deadlines, and, ultimately, failed transactions.
