USDT ROADMAP
TO SUCCESS

Our Story

After practicing dentistry for 25-years, Dr. Bill Adams founded Southeast Transitions almost 20-years ago to help his fellow dentists transition their practices to other dentists who share similar values and philosophies. The company has grown from a regional company to a national company, and we’re now US Dental Transitions. We’ve consulted with over 6,000 dentists and we’re seeing the best seller’s market in years.

Seller Contacts USDT

Initial information is gathered from the seller so we know which Transition Advisor to assign. The Advisor schedules a 30-minute consultation to discuss market conditions, what the doctor can expect the value of their practice to be, and what to expect after the sale. We will send the doctor a valuation packet and a sample listing agreement. This will prepare the doctor for the on-site visit.

On-site Visit

The on-site visit allows the doctor and the Transition Advisor an opportunity to meet so that the Advisor can tour the office, take photos of the practice, answer any questions the doctor may have, and discuss and review the practice valuation packet. This is an important time for the doctor to explain their treatment and practice philosophy, as well as staff management.

Valuation Process

US Dental Transitions requires a signed listing agreement and a completed practice valuation packet, 3-years of tax returns, and production by provider codes. Once we receive this information, it will take approximately 10-days to complete the core components of the practice valuation.

Co-author & Advertising

Your Transition Advisor will draft the advertisement and you will approve the ad prior to it being published. Once it’s approved, we will publish it in approximately 10 sites/journals.In addition, we will contact doctors who have requested information for the area via email and phone calls.We have a database of over 100,000 dentists and we have the ability to contact 5,000 dentists at one time.

NDA for Potential Buyer

All buyers are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement prior to seeing any practice data. Buyers need bank pre-approval prior to meeting the seller.

Location Tour & Buyer/Seller Introduction

The buyer will tour the office and discuss practice philosophy with the seller. If the buyer is interested, a Letter of Intent (LOI) is created and presented to the seller.Included in the LOI is the closing date. If the LOI is accepted, the buyer’s due diligence period begins. Simultaneously, there is a contract term agreement, formal bank approval, and other steps to close the sale.

Closing & Transitioning

Every practice transition is different, so your Transition Advisor will work with you to make recommendations based on your specific transition. Your Advisor will guide you through this process with suggestions on how to build relationships with staff and patients.

Results through success

“I always wanted to have my own practice but with 2 growing children, I realized that I needed to spend more time with my family. By selling my practice and working as an Associate, I now have the balance I need to raise my children and still work with great people.”

Results through success

“After 35-years of practicing dentistry I realized I had a lot to offer a young dentist, both clinically and business acumen. Although I wanted to continue to work, I didn’t want the full responsibility of managing a practice. By bringing in an Associate, I now have a work-life balance – I only work 2-days a week and I’m able to share my passion for dentistry with my Associate. We both think this relationship is very rewarding.”

Results through success

“I’ve been working with a group for 6-years and it’s time for me to take the best lessons learned and buy my own practice. I now have the ability to grow and manage my practice the way I feel is best.”

Results through success

“I’m 57-years old. Five years ago my practice was collecting 1 million dollars a year. Today, there are 6 corporate owned practices within a mile of me and I’m making less than $500,000. I can’t compete with the big name companies and I can’t grow my patient base. Although I love my practice, is it time for me to sell?”

Results through success

“After practicing dentistry for almost 30-years, I realized my grandchildren wanted to spend more time with Grandma. I’m glad I made the transition so that I can watch my grandchildren grow up. It changed my life.”

Results through success

“I never thought that a life changing experience would force me sell my practice at such a young age. It was important for me to find a dentist that shared my philosophies, who would take care of my patients and associates. I now have a 2nd career teaching dental students about the profession I love. This is the next best thing to practicing dentistry.”

Results through success

“I’ve dedicated almost 40-years to my practice, my patients and my staff. Now that I’ve sold my practice, I realize there’s more to life than dentistry. I now have the time to take a 3-week vacation with my family and share my success. The transition also relieved my family of the liability of owning a practice.”

A Smooth Practice Transition

"Robin Turner with US Dental Transitions made a very difficult part of my life quite manageable. She was available for me in multiple practice sales and also handled my later acquisition of my 'forever' practice shortly thereafter. In addition to her job as practice transition specialist, she became my counselor, my friend, and my life-advisor. In short, Robin was my shelter through some very stressful times in my life. I was able to get top dollar for my practice sales and obtain a very fair price on my practice purchase. Thank you, Robin, for your expertise and compassion. I will recommend Dr. Turner with 100% confidence to anyone looking for a smooth practice transition."

There is No Comparison

"There is really no comparison. In my search for a practice, I contacted and spoke with three other transition companies. US Dental Transitions is far and away the best company and people to work with. They showed me several options and helped me narrow my selection, worked with my bank and advisors, and followed up promptly and consistently. Doug and his whole team are very efficient and totally professional in every aspect of this complex project. I will be happy to share my experiences with any prospective practice buyer or seller. To me, it is very much a no brainer. Thank you, guys."

What a Joy it Was

"Amanda, what a joy it was to work with you on the sale of my dental practice in Atlanta. Selling my practice, that I had worked so hard to build for 40-years, was a difficult time for me. Thankfully, I had you there to assist me from the very beginning – from the listing to the closing. You made the transition from seller to buyer work so smoothly. Thank you so much for all the hard work and dedication you provided. I would gladly recommend you and US Dental Transitions to anyone buying or selling a dental practice, you are the BEST!"

Exceeded All Expectations

"I want to take this opportunity to give you a heartfelt “thank you” for all the hard work and dedication you exhibited that made our transition possible. At no time during the process did I ever question my decision to engage you as my transition team. From the very beginning, I felt I was working with the very best in the industry. Having US Dental Transitions represent and negotiate on my behalf has been absolutely beyond description. From day one, I knew the US Dental Transitions team would get me the best possible deal and that they would not allow for anything less. The team’s negotiating skills and overall approach greatly exceeded all expectations and made the final result possible."

Easy to Follow

"I was a first-time dental practice buyer who was intimidated by the process of buying and transitioning a dental practice. Suzie's advice and experience allowed me to get comfortable with buying a large dental practice that has so much potential. She assisted me in structuring the seller's post sale working arrangement to ensure that I had plenty of cash flow to support my student loans, practice debt, personal bills, and to set aside some profit to have in the case of an emergency. I would definitely work with Suzie and the US Dental Transitions' dental brokers again. The overall process was straight forward and easy to follow."

Outcome Was Wonderful

"I just want to tell you how much I appreciate all the things you did to hold my hand through the transition of my practice. Everything was done to make this as easy as possible, and the outcome was wonderful. I had several dentists tell me that I could have done this myself, without the assistance of a broker. I can tell you that the services US Dental Transitions provided, as well as setting the bar at the right financial height and tweaking the negotiations at just the right time, made my association with US Dental well worth the money. In fact, I feel like I probably ended up with more money by working through US Dental than I would have received doing it by myself. Thanks again."
