How ADAPT Works

Our practice transition experts guide you through the entire process of finding the right dental practice or dentist to ensure long-term practice success.

Too good to be true? Hear from two dentists who found each other through ADA Practice Transitions.


Create an online profile that showcases your credentials, experience, philosophy of care and other important elements of how you practice dentistry. All information is confidential and only shared with your ADA Advisor. 


We assess all your attributes and those of fellow dentists until we find the right person – one who shares your philosophy and goals.


You will be assigned an ADA Advisor who will help you set goals and expectations, foster a meaningful connection with another dentist, and provide support long after the paperwork is signed.
