Practice Profile: Great Production, Charm, and Opportunity

Posted by Betsy Krekling, ADA Advisor on 4/21/23 7:45 AM

This charming 8-operatory practice has strong production and collections, great staff, and a wonderful reputation. All that’s missing is a general dentist who can continue to serve patients as the owner prepares for retirement. Choose to buy outright or ease in while learning the business through an associate-to-owner pathway. 

The practice serves local families in a fast-paced, high-energy environment that produces about $1.2 million annually. Tucked near the river in a quaint village’s beautifully restored train depot, the office building is also for sale, if you so desire. 

The owner says, “We value each and every patient. We take time to get to know them and let them know we are here to keep them healthy. We ask them what concerns they have for their oral health. We meet them at their level when they first come in and try to raise that level of wanting good care.” 

The highly skilled staff are committed to the same mission. Together, the team educates patients on good home care and encourages them to ask questions, all to help promote each patient’s overall health. 

Located near the Finger Lakes in the hills of South-Central New York, the inviting village is known for its charm, with plenty of restaurants and entertainment that include a theatre, opera company, and philharmonic orchestra. It’s home to strong schools, annual festivals, and outdoor activities for all four seasons: skiing, snowboarding, boating, fishing, golf, and hiking.

Posted by Betsy Krekling, ADA Advisor on 3/10/23 7:45 AM

This stellar, 7-operatory practice is 100% fee for service — and ready for a successor! This small-town family practice focuses on personalized, comfortable general dentistry plus implants, Invisalign, cosmetic dentistry, and sedation. That makes for loyal patients and a healthy bottom line. 

The owner has committed to best practices and current technologies, including cone beam imaging, CAD/CAM, CEREC, dental lasers, digital radiography, and an in-house lab. The spacious, well-maintained, modern facility is right on Main Street, yet set back among plenty of parking and great landscaping. The office has attractive finishes throughout, and the operatories overlook nearby wetlands along the gorgeous Maine coast. 

Patient reviews rave about the compassionate, skilled staff, and the dedicated team enjoys time together in and out of the office. 

The current owner is approaching retirement and wants to find someone ready to take over when the time is right. Choose the timeline that’s right for you!

Practice Profile: Buy this Award-Winning Practice, Grow a Satisfying Career

Posted by Betsy Krekling, ADA Advisor on 2/3/23 7:30 AM

For sale: this award-winning practice has strong financials, loyal patients, and room to grow! Voted as a “Readers’ Choice” by the local newspaper for two years running, the team has a well-deserved reputation for delivering quality dentistry in a comfortable, 6-operatory environment.

This practice is ideal for a young, ambitious dentist with at least three years of experience who wants to own a successful practice that is poised to expand. 

The owner is ready to sell and has a valuation in hand, but he’s willing to stay on to provide mentorship that helps you succeed. Choose to buy or lease the building. 

The team currently works out of four of the spacious clinic’s operatories, with the other two fully equipped rooms used for overflow. The ambiance promotes patient comfort, and patients love watching the four birdfeeders (stocked daily) outside the operatories. Each treatment room has a TV. Great signage and ample parking make patient visits easy, as does the proximity to a local school: kids simply walk over for treatment. The practice is a longtime supporter of local schools. 

You could easily expand the schedule into the underused operatories, especially if you have oral surgery and endodontics experience. (These procedures are currently referred to nearby specialists.)

The loyal, dedicated staff are all cross-trained for maximum efficiency, and patients appreciate seeing familiar faces at every visit. 

When you buy this practice, you’ll enjoy the benefits of a small-town practice: a large patient base (18,000 county residents served by four dentists) with no DSO competition and low overhead. Yet you’ll be near a city of 250,000, which could allow the best of both worlds: an easy commute between small-town dentistry and big-city life.

Practice Profile: Full-Time, High-Tech Associateship in High-Demand Practice

Posted by Betsy Krekling, ADA Advisor on 1/27/23 8:30 AM

Join this busy suburban small-group practice to take your career to the next level. In this full-time associateship, you’ll learn from two experienced dentists while using the latest technology to treat a loyal patient population. You’ll even have an equity opportunity!

This freestanding 7-operatory practice has been serving the community for over 40 years. Yet the owners have never had to advertise — rather, strong patient relationships and word-of-mouth referrals keep the schedule plenty full! In fact, demand has grown so much that there’s currently a 3-month wait for appointments, so you’ll be busy right away. 

The owners are looking for a new team member who is willing to work hard, listen, and treat each patient’s individual needs. 

As the owners say, “Dentistry doesn’t leave room for boredom. The advances in techniques and technology keep us excited and motivated to do more and different procedures. We enjoy helping our patients to achieve good oral health and always strive to do our best every day. Our patients and staff are like family. Focusing on the individual needs of our patients allows us to project our caring nature as well as maintain our loyal patient base.”

The staff are loyal too, as everyone is treated with kindness and respect. The team has frequent lunches, celebrates birthdays and holidays, and enjoys office parties and outings throughout the year.

The strong team effort extends into the community through volunteer efforts with local charities. The practice supports local schools and churches, Toys for Joys, and even the local zoo. The team also provides free dental care at a local dental hygiene school.

The practice is updated with the latest technology, including a CBCT / 3D Pano, digital radiographs, paperless charts, diode lasers, electric handpieces, intraoral cameras, two Digital Cerec scanners, and a Cerec MCX milling unit.
