Question Purchase

How to tell if a practice is worth buying

April 11, 2021
It's one of the biggest purchases of a dentist's life—their practice. There's a lot involved, and you want to make sure it's the right practice for you.

ICYMI, our last pop-up event, “How to tell if a practice is worth buying,” is now available for on-demand viewing at this link.

Here’s what you missed. Dr. David Rice gave a comprehensive overview of how to determine if a particular practice will be a good investment for you. He covered topics such as cash flow after debt service, PPO mix, and lease considerations. He was then joined by buyer representative Brian Hanks, MBA, CFP, for a live panel discussion with the audience. David and Brian fielded questions such as how to ensure a smooth transition with the staff, and how to spend money on improving an outdated practice.
