The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Get the latest insights on passive real estate, dentist retirement plans, and more here.Many dentists are selling based on the frenzy in the marketplace or FOMO, but are they looking at all the important indicators when choosing to sell? Back again on the show is my good friend and mentor, Alastair Macdonald, who I bring on from time to time to address current topics in the investing, economic, or dentistry environment. In this episode, we discuss the current DSO scene and where we see private equity in dentistry going.

Listen in as Alastair shares his opinion on the DSO situations that many dentists find their way into and why he thinks this has more to do with an investment decision rather than dentistry. You’ll hear about the crucial distinction between sales and buy-outs, as well as the bad equity deals that are cropping up. And be sure to tune in next week for part two of this eye-opening discussion.
