ADS Executive Committee
To put it simply, a dental broker is professional that guides you through every step in the transition process of a dental practice. A broker has undergone training that makes them an expert in taking you through every moment of the dental practice transition—including valuing a dental practice, purchasing or selling a dental practice, negotiations and contracts, and the transition that takes place from one owner to another. In short, they’re your mentor through the transition of your dental practice from start to finish. Here at ADS Transitions, we have some of the top dental brokers in the field, and we’d like to take a moment to explain what we can do for you.
