As of October 19, 2020, 99% of U.S. dental practices were open.1 And while there appeared to be a slight decline in patient volume, practice values seem to be, for the most part, holding steady.

Many of our ADS Dental Transitions brokers have reported that a good percentage of practice revenues are bouncing back and practice inventory appears to be gradually increasing. If this recovery trend continues, it’s good news for practice values.
