"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."

"My AFTCO Analyst quickly and efficiently sold my practice."

Don A. Lutes, D.D.S.
Mt. Pleasant, TX

"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."

A normal practice lifetime for a dentist is usually around thirty to thirty-five years, and we each like to think that this applies to ourselves.
