Who Decided to Remove the Value from Your Dental Practice?

“Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”


This quote was written many years ago, but how true it is today!  It is incredibly disturbing to now see Internet advertising “gimmicks” where a person or a business entity has been given the privilege of selling a dentist’s priceless dental practice, list the selling price as if they were selling a car or refrigerator!

Banks were faced with very little guidance or direction on how the lending would occur, who would be the major players, and how it would all work out after the dust settled.  Banks were on call for several months to manage SBA fund distributions. This caused some changes in acquisition lending for dental practice sales and new start-up businesses.

Are You Ready for What Happens after the COVID Pandemic Experience?
