Client Testimonials

"My AFTCO Analyst was invaluable in guiding me every step of the way in the sale of my dental practice. She is very professional, extremely knowledgeable, and very personable."

Michael J. Friedman, D.M.D.
Oakhurst, NJ

"I was very satisfied and impressed by my AFTCO Analyst. He not only represented the seller in the sale, but was very helpful to me to understand the aspects of the transaction. I would highly recommend my AFTCO Analyst to anyone interested in selling or buying a practice."

Billy S. Pealock, D.M.D.
Lawrenceville, GA

"I have worked with most of the transition "experts" from other practice acquisition firms in the Atlanta area and my AFTCO Analyst is the only analyst who truly fits the term "expert". Everyone else who presents themselves as practice transition specialists seem only interested in selling practices just to get the deal done. My AFTCO Analyst actually listens to her clients and is the only analyst who looks out equally for both the buyer and seller, which is much easier said than done. She works at all hours to handle concerns, presents creative solutions that are mutually beneficial to both parties and goes above and beyond to ensure a transaction proceeds successfully for all involved. She makes herself available any time she is needed before, during and most importantly, after the practice transition. She provides unparalleled best in class service and I would trust her with any of my transition needs in the future."

Angela M. Ojibway, D.D.S.
Dunwoody, GA

"My AFTCO Analyst was very supportive in my transition. I was able to continue my practice while he found buyers and did the contracts. I was very satisfied and impressed."

John F. Uhlenhake, D.D.S.
Garnett, KS
