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.”

He explains, “For the right person, who wants to learn beyond the basics of dentistry, this would be a great fit. I am in excellent health and financially could retire any time. But I continue to practice because I love to solve problems for people. Over 25 years ago, I was drawn to treating complex TMD cases of supposedly unsolvable problems. As such I have taken a vast amount of training and made innovations as well to build a practice that is unique in helping people and has earned a national reputation. I served as a full mouth reconstruction clinical instructor at Las Vegas Institute for 12 years. If a dentist wants to learn smile design, adhesive dentistry, functional orthodontics, TMD/CCMD treatment at the highest competency levels, Full Mouth Reconstruction, Dental Sleep Medicine, I can be a resource. I wish to pass on this to an interested young dentist so that the practice continues to help patients for years to come.” 

The seller loves teaching and mentoring and would happily support the buyer’s learning and transition. He says, “I am happy to stay on as long as the new owner needs to learn the technical and communication aspects of this unique practice to make the transition. My time horizon is 5 years, if the new dentist wants me to stay, teach and mentor.” 

The practice is located north of the river in Kansas City, Missouri, just 15 minutes from the international airport. Enjoy professional football, baseball, and soccer, plus the T-Mobile Center arena with concerts, NCAA basketball, and entertainment throughout the year. 

On the arts front, check out the Kansas City Art Institute, world-renowned Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Kemper Museum of Modern Art, and the iconic Kauffman Center for Performing Arts. The local symphony has an active schedule, or take the kids to Science City, LEGOLAND, Worlds of Fun, or Oceans of Fun. Get outdoors in the rose garden, botanical garden, or numerous nearby state parks. 

The local economy is well diversified, with a wide range of industries that provides stability without boom-and-bust cycles. 

Kansas City is an ideal place to raise children, with a great mix of public and private schools. The public schools surrounding the office are known for academic excellence. 

This practice provides so much opportunity for an ambitious dentist who wants to learn TMD therapy under the guidance of one of the leaders in the field. Learn how you can take the next step in your career by creating your free ADAPT profile now.
