Client Testimonials

"My AFTCO Analyst was totally professional in evaluating the value of my practice. After I agreed to list the practice for sale, he brought several well qualified candidates in to talk to me about acquiring my practice. Ultimately, the two dentists that ended up acquiring the practice couldn't have been a better fit. The negotiations went smoothly and ultimately I couldn't have been happier with the final outcome. I would definitely refer colleagues to AFTCO for the high quality service that they provide."
