Alternative Career Program

Everyone has, at one time or another, given thought to “what if” as it relates to his/her choice of careers. For the average person the curiosity can be satisfied by merely changing jobs.

Client Testimonials

"My AFTCO Analyst was absolutely a joy to work with. His professionalism and experience were much needed in what turned out to be anything but a routine sale. I would recommend AFTCO to any of my colleagues."

Paul D. Ellington, D.D.S.
Potomac Falls, VA

"Under very difficult circumstances, AFTCO was able to help guide the seller to assemble the required documentation that was basically non-existent. His patience, compassion, professionalism and coordination of a very difficult process are to be highly commended. I do not believe most dental brokers would have been as diligent and persistent while maintaining a fair and equitable relationship representing both the seller and buyer. It is obvious that my analyst's interest was to create a "Win-Win" result for all parties. In fact, he accomplished his goal and objective in the most professional manner possible. Thank you!"

Edward H. Hobbs, D.D.S.
Garland, TX

"My AFTCO Analyst was knowledgeable and always available to answer my questions and concerns. His immediate response to all inquiries from me and interested parties moved the process forward quickly. He gave me the assurance that all the issues were being dealt with fairly."

Anthony J. Piniuk III, D.D.S.
Philipsburg, PA
