Client Testimonials

"AFTCO helped me throughout the whole process. Being new to owning a dental practice, my AFTCO Analyst guided me through my first transition and was very informative about all the steps to have a successful transition. From insurance to business needs, any question was answered timely, and if not, he would figure it out for me by getting the necessary contacts together. My AFTCO Analyst went the extra mile day or night to answer my questions. I would recommend AFTCO and look forward to working with AFTCO in the future."

"My AFTCO Analyst was extremely knowledgeable and optimistic from the start, concerning her ability to sell my practice for a very reasonable price in a difficult market location. She had a thorough understanding of all facets of a dental practice and the moving parts within the business and patient treatment modalities. She was very diligent in seeing my horse to the finish line. I greatly benefitted from her years of experience to smooth out the bumps along the way."

"My AFTCO Analyst was very helpful and knowledgeable to me as a buyer and also to the seller."

Larry W. Rains, D.D.S.
Wichita Falls, TX

"My Analyst was an invaluable source of knowledge and support in the purchase of our practice by my associate. I sincerely believe that he was instrumental in creating a "win-win" experience for me as the seller and my associate as the buyer. My Analyst was ALWAYS available with prompt answers to our many questions and concerns. His knowledge is invaluable. In a related matter, my attorney read and re-read several times, the sale contract and related documents. His statement to me was basically, "Each time I read the contract, I come away more impressed. These people know what they're doing." Once again, my family and I and my new partner thank you for a job well done."

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.
