AFTCO is the oldest and largest dental practice transition consulting network in the United States. Founded in 1968, AFTCO has analyzed the personal and business needs of thousands of dentists and has provided assistance in the area of purchasing, selling and merging dental practices throughout the United States.
AFTCO evolved into the company it is today out of the desire to help dentists in the all-important practice transition process. Through years of devoting their lives to their practice, many doctors find that they lose sight of their personal goals. Throughout their career, their success is measured by practice productivity, and personal needs are often made second to the demands of the practice. It was this ultimate realization that was responsible for a drastic change in AFTCO's philosophy and approach to the dental marketplace. AFTCO believes that doctors are people too, with needs like anyone else. Assisting dentists in identifying and maintaining a proper balance between business goals and personal needs is how AFTCO became the "Quality of Life Specialists."
AFTCO offers over 150 practice transition programs oriented towards the person, not the dentist. Our objectives are to determine the doctor's personal and business needs, select the appropriate program, and successfully implement that program for the purpose of achieving the doctor’s long-term "Quality of Life" goals. The right program can give new direction and meaning to a doctor's life.
AFTCO is a dual representation firm. It is our belief that "fair" cannot be negotiated, but it can be determined by a knowledgeable, informed and objective third party representing the interest of both parties. This philosophy was responsible for AFTCO developing its business based on "Equitable Transactions through Dual Representation." (For more information on dual representation click here.)
AFTCO has developed a reputation for professionalism, integrity, and fairness throughout the dental industry. Known as the "Quality of Life Specialists" who use the unique approach of "Dual Representation" AFTCO has become the largest dental practice transition network in the United States. We look forward to being of service to you.
If you want your transaction to be handled comprehensively and in a professional, non-adversarial environment, we welcome the opportunity to be of service to you.
