Common Concerns When Selling a Fertility Clinic

The process of selling a fertility clinic is intricate. Not only does it include financial challenges, but emotional ones as well. Fortunately, our brokers at Professional Transition Strategies are here to help you navigate through this process — starting with address your concerns. Here is some more information on common concerns when selling a fertility clinic.

What will happen?

The most common concern that doctors have when thinking about selling their clinic is fear of the unknown. There are many moving pieces to consider. For example, the cost of the clinic, the future and well-being of the staff and patients, how long it will take to sell the clinic, and whether or not selling is the best decision.

That’s why we do what we do. We are here to guide you through the entire transition process, from apprasing to the final paperwork. We can help you navigate through this process because we have been there and we know what needs to happen for a smooth, successful transition. Most importantly, we recognize that every situation is unique and we will help you decide which option is best for you.

What will happen to my staff and patients?

The future of staff and patients is another top concern doctors have when selling a fertility clinic. Many doctors have developed long-term relationships with their staff and want to make sure that everyone is taken care of. Similarly, you want to make sure that future patients are receiving the same level of patient care that you provided.

Though we cannot guarantee that your staff will remain employed by the future buyer, we do instruct buyers to not make any changes in the clinic for at least six months. Not only does this give employees a chance to “win” their jobs, they have time to look for employment elsewhere. Please know that we understand that the future of your staff and patients is important to you — we will do our best to help manage this transition.

Should I sell?

As doctors grow older, needs and circumstances change. And as their biological clock winds down, capabilities and stamina also change. Change can be stimulated by divorce, disability, IRS judgements, or just being burned out. Either way, you need to set the sale of your clinic as a carefully planned event. If a personal crisis were to dictate the sale, it becomes more difficult with the greater risk of lost revenue.

It is also important to sell before your clinic declines in income, patients, or revenue. Not only is this a red flag to buyers and financial institutions, it could negatively affect your clinic’s selling price. This is why we recommend to plan early so you can control the outcome. The longer you wait, the opportunity to plan and direct the course of the sale diminishes.

Overall, these are just a couple common concerns doctors have when selling a fertility clinic. Regardless of where you are in the selling process, we are here to help. Please feel free to contact us at any time.

6 Questions to Ask When Buying a Dental Practice

At Professional Transition Strategies, we have successfully guided hundreds of dentists through the process of selling and buying a dental practice. If you are thinking about buying a dental practice, you will naturally have several smart questions. Here are questions to ask when buying a dental practice.

What should I consider when buying a dental practice?

First, consider where you want to live. Be specific about where you want to live and how far you are willing to commute to work.

Second, think about the kind of dentistry you want to practice and the income you want to make. Consider the income that would fund your retirement and support a comfortable lifestyle. Don’t forget to factor in your expenses such as student loans, mortgage, car payments, insurances, and any other family-related expenses.

It is also important to consider the gross production of the office, collections, overhead, location, and patient charts and reports.

Will you retain the services of the current dentist?

Selling dentists are typically willing to stay on for a period of time to assist with the transition, introduce you to patients and referring doctors, and help you understand the processes of the office. However, you don’t want them to stay around for too long as their presence could interfere with you making the practice your own. We generally recommend no longer than six months.

Is it in the right location?

A key point to consider when looking to buy a dental practice is the demographic profile of the area. This includes household income, number of residents per dentist, and the number of competing dentists. All of these factors will directly impact the practice’s growth potential. Other location-based factors include visibility (pedestrian and vehicular traffic to get new patients), and the proximity to your home.

What type of dental work is performed at the practice?

From general dentistry to pediatric to endodontic to periodontic, it is important to know what type of dental work is performed at the practice you are interested in buying. Similarly, it is important to look at if the hygiene department is under-developed. Practices with underdeveloped hygiene departments give you the chance to increase profitability by shifting hygiene work to a hygienist. This allows you to focus on higher-margin dental work. Further, in practices where dentists regularly perform low-end dental work, there is a big opportunity for the incoming dentist to increase revenue by performing higher revenue-generating dental work. Of course, opportunities like this depends on your dental experience and expertise.

Do the clinic’s hours suit my needs?

It is important to consider the number hours necessary to operate the clinic. That, and whether that schedule suits your lifestyle — especially if you have younger children.

Will the sellers’ staff and patients stay in a transition?

It is very beneficial for the staff to remain in their jobs during a transition. It is equally important that the purchaser wants the staff to stay. With a proper transition, patient retention is in the mid-to-high 90% range for transitions handled by experts, such as those at Professional Transition Strategies.

Overall, buying a dental practice is an intricate process and it is very beneficial to work with an experienced transition company. If you have any unanswered questions about buying a dental practice, Professional Transition Strategies is here help! Please feel free to contact us at any time.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Selling to a DSO

Some of the main components to running a successful dental practice are excellent patient care, a professional environment, and friendly and competent support staff. But, there are a lot of other factors to take into consideration. Factors such as location, insurance acceptance, marketing, Human Resources, filing, and goodwill in the community. But with the main focus being excellent patient care, most dentists don’t have enough time or know how to run the business side of a practice. Sure, staff can help run the day-to-day operations, but at the end of the day, responsibility falls onto the dentist/owner. This is one of the reasons why dental service organizations (DSO) have become a reliable resource for dentists.

Keep reading to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of selling to a DSO.  

What is a DSO?

Dental Service Organizations, or abbreviated to DSOs, are independent business support centers that contract with dental practices in the US. They provide critical business management and support non-clinical operations. In short, they take care of the business things on the back end of dentistry. All DSOs are different and range in size from 4 to 900+ practices.

Advantages and disadvantages of selling to a DSO

If a dentist is near the end of his career, looking to take some of the burden off of his practice, but not ready to retire, selling to a DSO might be right for him. A good DSO helps make the day-to-day operations easier so you only have to focus on the clinical decisions. They also can be a great resource with collections, supplies at reduced costs, strategic marketing, and increasing profitability.

And if a dentist is approaching retirement, DSOs provide several benefits over selling to an individual buyer. Not only are DSOs willing to pay more than private buyers, they cash out with a higher evaluation, and allow dentists to work the same or reduced schedule after the sale. Further, not only does this accelerate transition time, selling to a DSO takes some of the unknown out of the planning.

But, DSOs aren’t just beneficial for retiring doctors. Doctors between the ages of 40-60 who plan to practice for another 15-20+ years can sell to a DSO. For example, we worked with a doctor who was in his late forties and plans to continue practicing dentistry for another 15+ years. He is a great clinician, just not very business savvy. Therefore, he is looking for a DSO to handle the business side of things.

However, there cons to such situations. Not all DSOs are well managed and operated. Some DSOs have been known to pressure dentists to work more than necessary. And if a DSO isn’t managed properly, the clinics contracted with them will not see lower costs or increased efficiency.

One of the biggest disadvantage of selling to a DSO is autonomy. When you sell, you are no longer the employer — you are the employee. Quite a few dentists dislike being part of a corporation that regulates their hours and workload.

You have options

Overall, there are several advantages and disadvantages of selling to a DSO. But, it is important to know that you have options. Options such as selling to an independent buyer, simply slowing business down, bringing in a partner or associate, or selling to a DSO. While selling to an independent buyer is a great way to ensure you get a good price for your life’s work, it can take time. Slowing business down could cause income to drop. And bringing in a partner or associate is a lot of work and is only successful about 20% of the time. Selling to a DSO is simply another option.

Overall, there is a right option for you. If you are thinking about selling to one of the 400+ DSOs in the US, you need to be sure it’s the right one for your practice. When we have worked with DSOs in the past, they always comment that it makes it easier to have a middleman. Similar to a person-to-person transition, working with a transition company facilitates the process from both sides.

So, if you are thinking about selling to a DSO, let Professional Transition Strategies help! Please feel free to contact us at anytime.

2017 ASRM Congress Outcome

Our team at Professional Transition Strategies attended the 2017 ASRM Congress in San Antonio, Texas last week! If you aren’t familiar, the ASRM Congress is an annual meeting for the American Society for Reproductive medicine. It has an annual attendance of more than 5,000 experts from all around the globe. Among these experts are genetic counselors, andrologists, obstetrician/gynecologists, nurses, and more.

This was our first year being an exhibitor at The 2017 ASRM Congress. In fact, we were the only transition broker with a focus in fertility and reproductive medicine in attendance. While we didn’t know what to expect going in, we were blown away with meeting some of the most influential people in reproductive medicine! Further, the other exhibitors inspired us with their work and passion for building healthy families.

While there, we had the pleasure of speaking with lots of doctors who are in need of our services. We found that our presence was an eye-opener — a lot of doctors that we talked to didn’t know that our services existed.

Here is some information about our company, as well as answers to frequently asked questions. 

We are a transition broker with a focus in fertility and reproductive medicine. We act as a resource to doctors who are looking to sell their fertility clinic.

If you are wondering why you would need a transition broker, it is because selling a medical practice is an intricate process. Not only does it include the financial and physical challenges, but it can include emotional challenges as well. PTS can help you navigate this process because we have been there and we know the components for a smooth transition. We realize that every situation is unique and we will help you decipher which option is best for you.

We had several doctors at the Congress ask us if they needed to sell their fertility clinic. Our answer is yes — every doctor that owns a clinic should eventually plan to sell. Many doctors will get paid well for their life’s work — as long as they have proper planning and assistance. Others will miss opportunities because of fear or misinformation and only get a fraction of the worth of their practice. Our advice is don’t count on the sale of your practice to fund your retirement plan, but don’t walk away from a valuable asset.  

Another popular question that we were asked was about the right time to sell a practice. As doctors grow older, their circumstances and needs will change. Their capabilities and stamina also change as their biological clocks wind down. Our recommendation is to set the sale of your practice as a carefully planned event. If a personal crisis dictates the sale, the sale becomes more difficult with a greater risk of lost revenue. For best results, plan early so you can control the outcome. The longer you wait, the opportunity to plan and direct the course of the sale diminishes.

Overall, we had a wonderful time at the 2017 ASRM Congress will definitely go back next year! If you have any questions about our services, feel free to contact us!

Who is Professional Transition Strategies?

PTS is a transition broker with a focus in fertility and reproductive medicine. We act as a resource to doctors who are looking to sell their fertility clinics.

Overall, it is nice to have a transition broker on your side if you aren’t looking to close your practice doors or sell to a corporate company. You can learn more about our team here.

Should I sell my fertility clinic?

Every doctor that owns a clinic should plan to eventually sell. They key to a successful and profitable transition is having a plan. That’s where PTS comes in — we are experienced and here to guide you through the steps that are required to sell your clinic.

When should I sell my fertility clinic?

PTS recommends our clients to sell their practice when business is at its peak. We find that if doctors wait too long and the practice is declining, it won’t be as attractive to the buyer.

We have found that it could take between one and three years to sell a clinic. But that’s just an estimate — every clinic is different and how long it takes to sell depends on different circumstances such as location, reason for sale, and patient attraction. That’s why if business is good and you are thinking about selling, you should contact PTS right away.

I want to sell my dental practice, but I’m not ready to retire

If you have thought to yourself, “I want to sell my dental practice, but I’m not ready to retire”, you are not alone! This is a fairly common situation and as long as clear lines are established, it can be a great situation.

So, if this is your thought process, let’s take a look at some options you have.  

I want to sell my dental practice, but I’m not ready to retire

There are a couple of different ways that this can be done:

  • Buy-in to Buy-out
    • This is where you bring in a partner for a period of time and have a plan in place for the partner to eventually buy the practice out in full. Or if agreed upon, you can bring on another partner or associate when the original doctor is finally ready to retire.
  • Become an associate and work for the buying doctor
    • Some doctors love practicing dentistry but don’t necessarily like the managerial aspect of owning a practice. In this case, it is best for the selling doctor to stay on as an employee/associate. You have a few options in this scenario: You can work for the new dentist at your original location, you can sell to a DSO and continue practicing at your original location, or you can find a new practice (privately or corporately owned) at an existing location and associate there.

Here are a few more things to consider:

  • If you sell your practice but want to continue working at another location, it has to be far enough away that you can’t take your patients with you (a non-compete will have to be in place).
  • The practice has to be both large and profitable enough to support you and the incoming doctor financially.
  • Clear terms need to be established within the operational agreement. This may limit any potential confusion amongst both doctors and the staff.

Here are some answers to commonly asked questions about selling a dental practice:

When is the right time to sell?

There really is no “right” time to sell a dental practice. But, you should set the sale of your practice as a carefully planned event. If you wait too long, and a personal crisis affects the sale, the sale could become more difficult and less profitable. Here at Professional Transition Strategies, we recommend selling when the practice is at its peak value.

How long will it take to sell my practice?

There is no set time when selling or transitioning a practice. For a practice in a major metro area, it usually takes 6-12 months. However, if your practice is in a smaller rural community, it could take up to 3 years.

What can I do to prepare?

The first step you’ll want to take is to have a comprehensive Practice Appraisal conducted to determine ways to make your practice more valuable and profitable. At PTS, we use the most effective way of calculating your practice’s worth by looking at certain factors and their impact on the business. Some of the factors include:

  • The practice’s location
  • Growth potential
  • Reason for the sale of the practice
  • Long-term trends of the practice’s revenue and profit margin

Overall, if you are thinking “I want to sell my dental practice, but I’m not ready to retire”, you have options. If you are ready to make the transition, we hope you contact Professional Transition Strategies — we are always here to help!

PTS is the only transition broker with a focus in fertility and reproductive medicine. We are here to act as a resource for doctors who are looking to sell their fertility clinics. Since selling a fertility clinic is often the single biggest decision of one’s professional career, it is important to be prepared as possible. With that, here are some things you should know about selling a fertility clinic:

You should talk with a transition broker

You have spent years building your practice. Now you are at an important milestone and you shouldn’t entrust your practice with just anyone. At PTS, we are experienced in assisting with partnerships, mergers, and affiliations, to name a few. Our team of professionals is here to meet with you one-on-one to discuss your personal goals. From there, we will conduct a comprehensive Practice Appraisal to determine ways to make your practice more profitable, and in turn, more valuable.

You need a plan

It is best to start preparing now if you plan on selling your practice within the next 2-5 years. If you wait too long, you could be jeopardizing one of your most valuable assets. It’s best to plan ahead so you can control the outcome of the transition.

The best time to sell

From a financial perspective, the best time to sell your practice is at its peak market value. This way, the owner will achieve the highest equity return. This is why it’s best to talk with a broker and create a plan as soon as you think about selling.
