Client Testimonials

"I have worked with AFTCO in the past, so I am familiar with the high quality of service they offer. My AFTCO Analyst really strives to make each transaction a "Win-Win". I will definitely turn to AFTCO to acquire future practices."

Mark D. Lassiter Sr., D.D.S.
Norwood, NC

"My AFTCO Analyst made the whole experience great and has so much experience that he makes the whole process much easier. I highly recommend anyone ready for a transition to call my AFTCO Analyst."

"My father was nearing the end of his career and planning to sell his practice to prepare for retirement. Before he could complete his dream, he unexpectedly passed away. I was then tasked with not only selling the practice, but trying to run it and keep it viable until we could find a buyer. My AFTCO Analyst was already working with my father trying to find a buyer. My Analyst was instrumental in helping keeping the practice open, offering help to me as I tried to manage the office. The practice was sold to a dentist that he helped get to work in interim. He handled the contracts and negotiations till the final day. Can't say enough about my AFTCO Analyst and all he did for me."

James S. Thompson, II
Spruce Pine, NC

"My AFTCO Analyst was fantastic. I met with other brokers and there is no one like my Analyst. She got me into a great practice and was very upfront with all the information. There will be a multitude of questions in a complex transaction such as buying a practice. She was very knowledgeable in all aspects of dental practice sales. With no reservations I recommend my AFTCO Analyst."
