4 Reasons Confidentiality Is Important During the Dental Practice Transition Process

It’s only natural to want to share your news with the world as soon as you decide to purchase or sell a dental practice, but there are more pros than cons when it comes to keeping the details of your deal under wraps. Here’s how and why confidentiality is important during the dental practice transition process.


As a business owner, you’ll want to make sure the deal is finalized before notifying your staff and patients alike. Just as staff can get nervous and even start job hunting at the thought of insecurity with a new boss, patients can likewise start looking for other doctors if they find out you’re hanging up the proverbial hat.

Bottom line

Any drastic changes to your practice during the sale process can result in a decline in value, whether based on a change of staff or patient demographics. A “warm handoff” that is properly executed and conveyed will account for significantly less attrition, not to realize good faith in knowing both staff and patients will be in good hands.


If word gets out that you’re working on selling your practice, that opens the door for competing dentists to up their marketing game and try to steal patients and staff. Even if your pending departure isn’t for another couple of years, sale details shared too soon can be used against you and your business too soon.


If you are currently an associate in a practice but in the market to purchase your own, leaked details can get back to your employer and result in termination of your employment contract. For this reason, it’s worth repeating that associateships are typically only 20 percent effective due to not everything being agreed upon from the outset and different expectations not being met by both parties.

What’s next?

Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, contact the experts at Professional Transition Strategies to start and finish the dental practice transition process the right way.

How to Compete with an Institutional Buyer of a Dental Practice

As with any real estate purchase, it’s not a matter of finding a property you want to invest in and purchasing it. There are many steps that happen in between, including competing with other potential buyers. And it’s not always a matter of who has the most money. Here’s what you need to know when competing with an institutional buyer of a dental practice.

Prove your worth

The best way to get to know who you are bidding against in order to come out on top is to understand their strengths and weaknesses, as well as compare how they will be selling themselves with your own value proposition. Then, play to your own strengths and show the seller how you will be caring for their patients in actionable steps in terms of your experience with long-term patients using your CV and letter of intent.

Online reviews

Develop a strong presence on review sites to generate positive awareness so the selling doctor can learn how your current patients see you rather than simply taking your word for it. With all the sweat equity put into building a practice, the doctor will want to sell to someone they like and will trust with their patients. The amount of the offer doesn’t matter as much as the amount of trust a selling doctor has in handing over the reins.

Accept defeat

In the end, it’s important to know you won’t win them all. It is hard to compete with groups that allow the dentist to ramp down their time and will pay a substantial premium for the practice. The best thing you can do is to be creative proactively and learn from past deals that fell through. The way you structure a deal can matter, so coming up with unique incentive programs and longer-term payouts can help with the seller’s taxes, in addition to being willing to pay a premium to compete.

Why DSOs Can Pay More for a Practice than a Single Practitioner

Now that you know for a fact that fewer dental practices are selling to individuals, the next natural question is, “Why?” When it comes to putting pen to paper, selling to a dental service organization can make financial sense for both the buyer and seller. Here’s what you need to know to make sense of the process.

Private equity money

Since DSOs typically do not have to rely on bank financing because they are funded by private equity groups, they can pay more for practices than the standard individual. What’s more, you’ll get a higher valuation because a DSO won’t take hard assets into account but rather will focus on collections and other finances. DSOs also have private equity money, which is favorable to a bank over an individual buyer when it comes to securing a loan.

Economies of scale

With an increase in dental service organizations comes more options available to dentists looking to sell. More doctors today are affiliating with DSOs than ever before because of the variety available. Selling to a DSO makes sense when the seller is looking to stay on with the practice but wants to release managerial responsibilities, such as in a retirement situation or anyone who is looking to maintain a work-life balance.

Cost structure optimization

DSOs have gotten a negative reputation because of their seeming corporate interest. A DSO is a likely buyer when the seller is looking to stay on with the practice but wants to release managerial responsibilities, such as in a retirement situation or anyone who is looking to maintain a work-life balance. Selling to a DSO allows you to focus on the clinical side and patient care without contributing time and money associated with running a business.

Loan amount

Banks are typically not able to loan on larger practices that value somewhere around $2 million to single practitioners; however, DSOs can. Simply put, banks essentially have a set amount of how much they will loan a dental practice, while DSOs have the ability to compete in bidding wars without set limits.
