How We Are Different

Dental Practices for Sale in IA IL MO AR IN

  • We show up. Whether we drive or fly, we are there... Most dental practice brokers, shows up to list the dental practice, but that is it. Not us. We believe that all brokerage is local, and that we need to be there. When we do the valuation, we show up. When the prospect visits the dental practice, we show up. When they want to come back again and take a more detailed look, we show up. When we meet with the lawyer, we show up. When we have the closing, we show up.
  • We only represent the seller. Some dental practice brokers do not have a problem with "dual agency" and will take a commission from both sides. We believe that this is not only bad business, but unethical. Other dental practice brokers compare themselves to a "referee". Do you want a referee or someone that is advising you and advocating on your behalf?
  • Reputation We have been doing this for 30+ years. Like a dentist, our reputation is everything! Do five hundred deals, and just do one bad deal, and that's the one that people will talk about. We will, and have, walked away when we don't feel ethically confortable. That is one of the many reasons, why we were chosen by both the Illinois State Dental Society and the Missouri Dental Association, to be their sole endorsed dental transition broker.
