Rob Ballard - The DBS Companies
Rob graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry in 1982 and opened a highly successful practice northwest of Flint, MI where his primary focus was general dentistry and developing long-term relationships with his staff and patients. Rob owned his practice for 34 years until a disability forced him to leave his career in dentistry.
Today, Rob is a member of the DBS Professional Practice Brokers team, serving the southeast Michigan, metro Detroit, and Ann Arbor areas. As a DBS client for two decades during his practice ownership, Rob is well acquainted with the DBS business culture. In addition, Rob’s firsthand experience with working in a dental setting; selling his practice through DBS; and an awareness of the concerns confronting a dentist thinking of retirement, selling/purchasing a practice, or entering an associateship provides him with a unique perspective to identify and understand the position of his clients.
Rob has made it his business to understand the numbers in the dental practice and to assist our clients in this side of the process. Many of Rob’s dental colleagues find that element of their business daunting. With his experience and training, Rob is eager to guide both buyers and sellers in a way that makes the transition experience smoother.
