Things may not get back to normal right away; in fact, we don’t really know what the new day to day operational normal is going to look like.

What we can do, however, is make some educated speculations as to what might happen to the marketplace. Historically speaking, practice values have always recovered very well after significant financial crises. A relatively recent example of this is the very strong…

Dentistry to the Rescue

At this stage, I think everyone has had enough self-isolation. The fact that we know how important self-isolation is doesn’t really help with the cabin fever.  I think it would be safe to say that just about everyone would like to see things get back on the road to “normal”.

Should You Increase Your Revenue, or Decrease Your Expenses?


We have previously addressed the issue that practice value is a function of profit. Increasing your profit not only provides you with more cash flow, it also increases the value of your practice.  Profit is the result of subtracting your expenses from your gross revenues, so to increase your net profit you can do it by increasing your gross, decreasing your costs or a combination of the two.  A combination of the two would…

As a new graduate from dental school…

Magic Metrics

“How is my practice doing compared to other practices out there?”  A common question that we are often asked particularly by dentists looking to sell their practices.  Sometimes the answer is “not as good as it could be, but nothing that a few tweaks couldn’t fix.”  The real question of course is how do we know; how could you know if your practice is doing well or not?  The answer to that question should…
