The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Selling Your Dental Practice | Perrin Desportes

Today’s guest, Perrin DesPortes, helps dentists build group practices, bring associates and executives into ownership, and assist in the transition process. If you’re moving towards a transition with your practice, then be sure to tune in.

You will hear about what it means to be ‘doctor-founded’ and ‘debt-funded’ and how it has allowed for so much success among the practices that have worked with Perrin. We also discuss the many different aspects that a practice owner needs to consider to do what’s best for their practice and transition aspirations.
