The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Get the latest insights on passive real estate, dentist retirement plans, and more here.The exit model is changing rapidly and there are a lot of moving parts to be aware of when you’re planning a practice transition. On this podcast, I’m going to share a conversation I had with Alastair Macdonald that happened in a small group setting where we addressed the conundrum about the DSO and private equity exit options.

Listen in as we go through a case study from someone in that small group who had recently gone through a practice exit. You will learn how to best structure negotiations at a professional level, important contract terms to focus on when negotiating with DSOs, how to conduct due diligence, and more. Alastair also sheds light on some very important concepts that will help you become a more successful and sophisticated deal-maker, even in the midst of a market shift.
