But are all of these career choices equally wise? Which has the greatest impact on the doctor's Lif

A Diamond in the Rough

Ask a recent dental graduate for a description of the practice he or she would like to purchase and you will hear, “I want a high quality crown and bridge practice, in the best area of town, where I can do my kind of work on my kind of patients.” For that matter, it would be amazing if a purchaser ever had a different response. Vanity is usually the reason he or she wants to purchase this kind of practice, but is it really the best opportunity?

Client Testimonials

"My experience with AFTCO was very brief and pleasant. The entire process was as easy and stress-free as I could have ever imagined. My AFTCO Analyst was what made this such a pleasant experience. If I needed him for a question, he was always there, and if he didn't answer when I would call, he would call back ASAP. The entire process went like this: I decided to sell my practice and contacted AFTCO. My AFTCO Analyst called me and told me he had someone interested. I showed him the practice and he bought it. We signed the contract and it was done and over. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought it would go this smoothly. Thank you for doing such a great job with the sale of my practice."

David S. Long, D.M.D.
Dothan, AL

"I have worked with my AFTCO Analyst for the last five years. I have yet to find anyone who is as knowledgeable and interested in making the transition work well for both parties. I wholeheartedly recommend my AFTCO Analyst for any dental professional looking for guidance in either buying or selling."

Anthony R. Bielkie, D.D.S.
Shelby Township, MI

"After practicing dentistry for 39 years and not knowing all my options to transition out or downgrade my time in my dental practice, my AFTCO Analyst was very professional and clear about how we could do that. I never felt any pressure and he was there 24/7 to answer all my questions. I have been very pleased on how easy this very difficult decision has been and the results that have occurred. I would highly recommend AFTCO's services to any of my colleagues."

Paul R. Gordon, D.D.S.
Knoxville, TN

"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."
