Client Testimonials

"My father was nearing the end of his career and planning to sell his practice to prepare for retirement. Before he could complete his dream, he unexpectedly passed away. I was then tasked with not only selling the practice, but trying to run it and keep it viable until we could find a buyer. My AFTCO Analyst was already working with my father trying to find a buyer. My Analyst was instrumental in helping keeping the practice open, offering help to me as I tried to manage the office. The practice was sold to a dentist that he helped get to work in interim. He handled the contracts and negotiations till the final day. Can't say enough about my AFTCO Analyst and all he did for me."

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 practices throughout the United States.

AFTCO evolved into the company it is today out of the desire to help dentists. Through years of devoting their lives to their practice, many doctors find that they lose sight of their own personal goals. Throughout their career, success is measured by practice productivity and personal needs are often 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 programs, which are oriented towards the person, not the dentist. Our objectives are to determine the doctor's needs, select the appropriate program, and successfully implement that program for the purpose of achieving long-term "Quality of Life" goals. The right program can give new direction and meaning to a doctor's life, which we believe they have earned.

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 by being "Quality of Life Specialists" who use the unique approach of "Dual Representation". This has allowed us to become the largest dental practice transition network in the United States.

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.

When success matters, call AFTCO.
