Large Practice Sales

Sell All or Part of Your Practice at Today’s High Valuations | Your practice may be worth more than you think, but you may not want to sell all of it just yet. Buyers are paying record prices today for larger orthodontic practices, but most of our clients are not ready to retire. In fact, the average age of our clients is well under 50. They want to take some cash off the table, secure their future, and grow more, but not retire. | Doctors get millions in cash up front AND monthly profit distributions for their retained ownership, and best of all, they have a new partner to fund growth with no risk! The growth you create with your partner’s capital directly increases the value and cash flow of your retained ownership.
