Guiding Your Transition

Selling your dental practice is a life-changing, emotional event, and the process isn't as simple as posting a "For Sale" sign. The experts at USDT have 20+ years of experience guiding dentists through the complexities of selling their practices. Learn about our process.

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 Data Packet, 3 years of Tax Returns, and Production by Procedure Code reports. 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. Ads are published on approximately 10 sites/journals. In addition, we will contact doctors who have previously requested information for the area via email, phone calls, and other marketing efforts. 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. 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 situation. Your Advisor will guide you through this process with suggestions on how to build relationships with staff and patients.
