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."

"My AFTCO Analyst was above and beyond all I expected. He made the transition as seamless and flawless as possible. He is to be commended!"

"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."

"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."

Can the existing owner of a practice offer to "buy" a restrictive covenant from the associate with no contract?

Absolutely. The best thing the owner of a practice can do when he wants to sell his practice (and has an associate with no contract working in the practice) is to offer to pay $5000 or $10,000 to the associate as consideration for a restrictive covenant that can be transferred to a new purchaser.
