Practice Profile: Tech-forward & Profitable with Room to Grow in the Hudson Valley

Posted by Betsy Krekling, ADA Advisor on 2/26/21 9:15 AM

Buy this technology-forward, 100% fee-for-service practice that enjoys fantastic production and a well-earned reputation for delivering top-quality care.

This 4-operatory solo practice is currently open four days a week – but there’s an 11-week wait for hygiene and a 6-week wait for treatment. Meanwhile, the practice receives 8 to 12 calls per day from new patients moving to the area from New York City. That means there’s demand to expand beyond the practice’s current 2,800 patients (and space to do so).

Set Reasonable Expectations for Your First Dental Job (and Whatever Comes Next)

Posted by Betsy Krekling, ADA Advisor on 2/3/21 9:15 AM

Rounding the corner into your last year or semester of dental school? If you’re on the job hunt, you’re probably wondering what that first job might look like.

Just like in every other field, you may not find the “perfect” forever job right out of the gate. It often takes a few years of working in a few different scenarios before you can learn what type of practice is right for you.

Some people love a bustling, busy practice with a dozen doctors working side by side, each focused on a couple specific treatments. Others prefer to do a little bit of everything and work solo. There’s no right or wrong – it’s a matter of preference.

  • They have been in their current practice for a few years and feel like there’s no room for advancement. The owner isn’t retiring any time soon and doesn’t want to share patients or responsibility.
  • They are in a corporate practice and like the stability, but feel burned out.
  • They want to buy but aren’t sure how they can afford it, or don’t feel quite ready. (And they know there’s a lot they don’t know.)
