Client Testimonials

"As a first time buyer with not a lot of prior experience in not only purchasing a practice, but also running one, I was in need of some help. When I met my AFTCO Analyst, he not only showed me practices that fit my needs, but he also provided invaluable advice on which ones would be the best choices for me and my goals. His expertise from his experiences of not only running his own dental practice, but also his input of his successes and failures was invaluable in not only my purchase but also my transition into getting my new practice going."

Apolonio A. Lirio, D.M.D.
Sarasota, FL

"My AFTCO Analyst was extremely knowledgeable and optimistic from the start, concerning her ability to sell my practice for a very reasonable price in a difficult market location. She had a thorough understanding of all facets of a dental practice and the moving parts within the business and patient treatment modalities. She was very diligent in seeing my horse to the finish line. I greatly benefitted from her years of experience to smooth out the bumps along the way."

William F. Dudley Jr., D.M.D.
Vineland, NJ

"My AFTCO was exceptional. He kept me informed at all times and was able to work through any obstacles. Totally professional. I gave him a time frame and it was met with time to spare. I am completely satisfied and it could not have been any smoother. Both the buyer and I were happy."

Gary G. Peters, D.D.S.
Hellertown, PA

"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.
