Southeast Transitions is now US Dental Transitions

Selling a Dental Practice

When it comes to significant events in your life, selling your dental practice is as life-changing and emotional as buying or building your dream home, getting married, or even the birth of a child. You’ve worked hard in building a reputation, training and growing staff, and serving your patients and your community. It’s not as simple as throwing up a “for sale” sign, finding a buyer, and closing the deal. There’s the complexities of the legal paperwork to consider, as well as looking after the best interests of your staff and patients.

Selling your practice requires guidance and advice from the trusted dental brokers at U.S. Dental Transitions who understand the impact of your life’s work. Our Dental Practice Transition Advisors are all dental industry professionals who understand that you have unique requirements, and we tailor our methods to fit your specific needs and the goals you have for yourself, your staff, and your patients.

Preparing to Sell Your Dental Practice

Before you get started selling your dental practice, there’s a few things you should consider to understand why you want to sell your practice, and what your goals are for the sale. Answering the following questions helps your U.S. Dental Transitions Advisor package and market your practice in a way that meets your goals. If you have trouble answering these questions, you can be rest assured that our Dental Transition Advisors will be there to help facilitate the conversation.

Preparing to Sell Your Dental Practice

After you’ve defined the goals for selling your practice, the next step is a dental practice valuation. This valuation process allows us to create a pricing strategy that fits your expectations, current market conditions, and the defendable value for your ongoing operations.

Our experienced Dental Transition Advisors will work to ensure your practice sells for a great price to the right buyer. We will:

  1. 1. Market your practice to a pool of qualified buyers
  2. 2. Qualify prospective buyers
  3. 3. Show your practice only to qualified candidates
  4. 4. Manage the purchase offer process
  5. 5. Negotiate the terms and conditions of the sale on your behalf (price, AR, change of control, work back period, etc.)
  6. 6. Facilitate the closing
  7. 7. Deliver your check

Our process is designed to minimize the amount of time you need to take away from practicing dentistry while you are selling your business. This ensures that your patients and staff experience no degradation in performance and your business maintains its normal cash flow.

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, answerany 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.
