Client Testimonials

"I found my AFTCO Analyst to be a wealth of information that made the transition seamless."

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

"My AFTCO Analyst was exceptionally talented, knowledgeable and proficient!"

Anthony J. Warren, D.D.S.
Alamogordo, NM

"My AFTCO Analyst was totally professional in evaluating the value of my practice. After I agreed to list the practice for sale, he brought several well qualified candidates in to talk to me about acquiring my practice. Ultimately, the two dentists that ended up acquiring the practice couldn't have been a better fit. The negotiations went smoothly and ultimately I couldn't have been happier with the final outcome. I would definitely refer colleagues to AFTCO for the high quality service that they provide."

Jerome M. Usheroff, D.D.S.
Chicago, IL

"My AFTCO Analyst was very professional and excellent at explaining everything. The contracts were well written which caused much less involvement to be required from the dentists' attorneys. The transaction went smoothly because of my AFTCO Analyst."

Peter K. Pang, D.D.S.
Asheville, NC

It's Not a Problem Until It’s a Problem

Years ago, you decided it was time to “take in an associate”. You interviewed a few candidates and before long you met the ideal associate for your practice.
