Practice Profile: Mentorship to Grow in a Nationally Renowned TMD/TMJ Therapy Practice

Posted by Betsy Krekling, ADA Advisor on 6/24/22 7:45 AM

Are you interested in TMD/TMJ therapy and looking for a wonderful opportunity with a great mentor? Buy this 100% fee-for-service practice with a national reputation for non-surgical treatment of TMD/craniofacial pain with orthodontic, airway management, and restorative components. 

All six operatories are updated with the latest technology, including CBCT, K7 jaw computer systems, Fontana Lightwalker hard/soft tissue laser, digital radiographs, paperless charts, digital scanners, electric handpieces, and intraoral cameras. The modern, free-standing brick dental office building has lots of windows for natural light. The 3,000-square-foot open concept office includes a welcoming reception area, consultation room, and employee lounge. An additional 1,000 square feet of space can be converted into two more operatories when you’re ready. And it’s all located on a busy thoroughfare near a residential area of Kansas City, Missouri. 

This practice is ideal for a dentist with 5 or more years of experience after dental school — someone interested in helping people by providing high-end dental services. As owner, you’ll make a good income without running from room to room. This niche practice has not accepted general dentistry patients and lacks a hygiene department. Additionally, all surgeries, implant placements, and endodontics cases are currently referred out. That gives the buyer options: you can continue to focus on the niche part of the practice, bring additional services in house, or build a high-end general dental practice that surrounds the TMD/TMJ specialty. Choose whatever suits your interests! Either way, the extremely knowledgeable clinical assistant who has been with the practice for more than 20 years will be by your side, ready to help the practice succeed.  

This unique practice is 100% fee for service, meaning that dental insurance discounting trends have no effect on the bottom line. The seller says, “This is a lane with little competition.”

Practice Profile: High-Tech Updated Office with a Perio Focus

Posted by Betsy Krekling, ADA Advisor on 6/17/22 7:00 AM

Buy this 5-operatory practice with an outstanding staff that’s eager to help you succeed. This high-tech practice focuses on family and cosmetic dentistry, with a strong periodontal program (including perio maintenance, surgery, and bone and soft tissue grafting), laser-assisted new attachment procedure (LANAP), implants, sleep apnea, and more. 

You’ll be taking over a highly respected office that's devoted to bringing the latest best practices to ensure patients’ overall health. The long-tenured staff is very knowledgable. And since the practice is currently open just four days a week, there’s room (and demand) to expand the schedule. 

The practice is located on a busy highway in Independence, Missouri for easy visibility. Inside, the open, peaceful atmosphere puts patients at ease. The updated space offers plenty of room, with a great flow through the sterilization area. Nearby, there’s plenty of retail, fast food, restaurants, a Sam’s Club, and a Costco. 

The education-focused seller routinely obtains 100+ hours of CE each year, and the practice uses the latest materials for pulp capping and root canal therapy. He works closely with local physicians to help patients improve their overall health, and is on staff at the local medical center. He is also active in organized dentistry. 

The seller is willing to provide mentorship to help the buyer build knowledge and relationships that will continue the practice’s high standards and reputation.

From there, you can walk to great restaurants and shopping — and the beach is just blocks away. 

The seller says “We have a long tradition of treating people well, with a strong focus on patient education, personalized service, and long-term patient relationships. We’re known for taking an ethical, conservative approach to dentistry.”

The practice includes newer equipment, a waterless vacuum, oilless air compressor, and amalgam separator.
