The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Get the latest insights on passive real estate, dentist retirement plans, and more here.Back again today is Alastair Macdonald to finish the conversation we started last week about the movement of private equity money into the dental arena. Where did all of it come from? Where is it likely to go? In this episode, you will hear more about the caveats and dangers involved in practice transitions and particularly with DSOs.

Listen in as we discuss the issues historically involved and the potentially new issues coming into play in the current economy. You’ll learn how to make the right move to sell your practice and how to know when the right time might be to do so. (And in case you missed it, be sure to listen in to part one of this conversation!)
