Client Testimonials

"I worked with My AFTCO Analyst and can honestly say that he is the best broker I have ever met. He genuinely cares about everyone involved in buying and selling of practice. He was available outside of business hours, provided me a cell phone number to reach him at if he was out of the office, and made himself available to meet if needed. He is professional and extremely knowledgeable. I can't say enough great things about My AFTCO Analyst. He represents AFTCO very well!"

But the Practice for Merger is Over-Priced!

There are some dentists and their advisors who worry more about the seller benefits, and lose sight of the immediate and long term benefits for the purchaser.
