Client Testimonials

"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."

Rose-Marie Fay, D.D.S.
Sugar Land, TX

"My AFTCO Analyst was a great person to have when buying my new practice. He was knowledgeable about the practice, the area, and was quick to provide information when needed. I would refer people to my AFTCO Analyst if they were looking to buy or sell an office."

Keith A. Blessitt, D.M.D.
Nokomis, FL

"I have worked with most of the transition "experts" from other practice acquisition firms in the Atlanta area and my AFTCO Analyst is the only analyst who truly fits the term "expert". Everyone else who presents themselves as practice transition specialists seem only interested in selling practices just to get the deal done. My AFTCO Analyst actually listens to her clients and is the only analyst who looks out equally for both the buyer and seller, which is much easier said than done. She works at all hours to handle concerns, presents creative solutions that are mutually beneficial to both parties and goes above and beyond to ensure a transaction proceeds successfully for all involved. She makes herself available any time she is needed before, during and most importantly, after the practice transition. She provides unparalleled best in class service and I would trust her with any of my transition needs in the future."

Angela M. Ojibway, D.D.S.
Dunwoody, GA

"My AFTCO Analyst was not only a wealth of information, she knew details about the whole dental community. She was able to match those seeking a particular type of practice and leave behind the tire kickers. The process was seemless and good feelings abound all around."

Michael W. Grzelak, D.M.D.
Summit, NJ

A Diamond in the Rough

Ask a recent dental graduate for a description of the practice he or she would like to purchase and you will hear, “I want a high quality crown and bridge practice, in the best area of town, where I can do my kind of work on my kind of patients.” For that matter, it would be amazing if a purchaser ever had a different response. Vanity is usually the reason he or she wants to purchase this kind of practice, but is it really the best opportunity?
