Client Testimonials

"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

"From initial contact, I found AFTCO to be extremely professional and helpful to both ends of the transaction. As soon as I am ready to buy another practice, there is no doubt I will contact AFTCO again."

Rashid Beirute-Prada, D.D.S.
Plano, TX

"My AFTCO Analyst was not only a wealth of information, she knew details about the whole dental community. She was able to match those seeking a particular type of practice and leave behind the tire kickers. The process was seemless and good feelings abound all around."

Michael W. Grzelak, D.M.D.
Summit, NJ

"I am extremely satisfied with my experience with AFTCO and the sale of my practice. They took a personal approach and got to know me and my practice to match with suitable prospective buyers. They prescreen buyers for financial and other matters. I did not waste my time talking to unqualified buyers. My AFTCO Analyst was extremely knowledgable, professional, and understanding. Selling a practice is very stressful and when I had questions he promptly answered them which helped allay some of the stress. His advice turned out be absolutely correct every time. I highly recommend AFTCO to anyone who is contemplating a practice transition."

Rose-Marie Fay, D.D.S.
