Client Testimonials

"My AFTCO Analyst was great to work with in the purchase of my first dental practice. He would always make time for me after business hours. He would respond to emails in an extremely timely manner. In the future, I would work with AFTCO, just to work with my Analyst. He was an asset in all facets of the practice purchase. I was nervous at first, due it being my first practice but my Analyst assured me all would be good, and it was. I highly recommend my AFTCO Analyst when considering a dental practice to purchase. Easy decision. Thank you."

"I have now bought three practices with the help of my AFTCO consultant. His attention to detail, helpfulness, timeliness, and support made all three transitions very smooth; not only for me as a purchaser but also for the selling doctors. Not only were the transitions quick and painless but he has followed up after their completion to ensure success and my own peace of mind. Thank you AFTCO for helping me shape my career."
