Transition Tales: Building a Career that Balances Business with Dentistry

Posted by Bree Simmers on 12/10/19 9:00 AM

This is part of the Transition Tales & Truths series in which we discuss practice transitions with real dentists.

Today’s Transition Tale comes from our friend and 2020 New Dentist Committee Vice Chair Dr. Daniel Hall. He wants to share his learnings with other dentists so hopefully they can find the right fit, the first time.

Dr. Hall got in touch with ADA Practice Transitions because he believes that ADAPT, a service created by the ADA, could have helped alleviate many of the obstacles he found during his journey to practice ownership.

What Went Wrong: I Overlooked the #1 Thing That Mattered Most

Posted by Dr. Suzanne Ebert, ADA Advisor on 11/13/19 9:01 AM

This is part of the “What Went Wrong Wednesdays” series, in which we explore common problems of practice transitions – and offer tips to help you avoid them.

At ADA Practice Transitions, we place a heavy emphasis on making sure incoming doctors share a similar philosophy of care as the practice owner. While it may not be immediately apparent, having a shared approach is critical to the success of your future career or retirement plan, even if you are planning to sell and walk away.

Transition Tales: Finding a Fit in a Small-Town Dental Practice

Posted by Bree Simmers on 10/17/19 9:05 AM

This is part of the Transition Tales & Truths series in which we discuss practice transitions with real dentists.

When Dr. Christy Rens and her husband (a fellow dentist) graduated from the University of Minnesota Dental School, they weren’t quite sure where their future would take them. They assumed they would eventually wind up near family in the Twin Cities.

Life doesn’t always turn out as planned. One day, Dr. Christy got a call with an offer that she and her husband couldn’t refuse, so they packed their bags to try small-town life. The two-year contract even included free housing if they were willing to serve two rural practices.

Why ADA Practice Transitions Isn’t Just Another Broker

Posted by Bill Robinson, ADAPT President & CEO on 10/1/19 9:03 AM

In April, the American Dental Association launched a pilot for a new service: ADA Practice Transitions. Our goal is to make the process of joining, expanding, or leaving a dental practice more predictable and successful. The pilot is currently available in Wisconsin and Maine for all dentists looking for opportunities in those states. (We will soon be expanding to other states – sign up to be notified of the program’s growth.)

Some have said that the ADA is just replicating the current broker market. While there is some natural overlap, ADA Practice Transitions takes a completely new approach that’s designed to address a major need: finding the right person or practice for a successful transition.

Transition Tales: Why Practice Transitions Should Be a Family Affair

Posted by Bree Simmers on 9/17/19 9:05 AM

This is part of the Transition Tales & Truths series in which we discuss practice transitions with real dentists currently in the process.

We recently met Dr. Joe, a recent graduate working in a DSO with dreams of buying his own dental practice. Dr. Joe joined ADA Practice Transitions to pursue his goals and is working with his ADA Advisor to narrow down the best path forward.

The “life” in “work-life” balance is very important to Dr. Joe and his family. The desire to build a good life for his family guides every step of his journey.
