Our Expertise
Our deep knowledge of the veterinary and dental industries provides us with a critical foundation for formulating the best strategic recommendations for your practice. Our team can analyze your current situation and advise you during any stage of your practice's business life cycle and maturation phase.
Although you may be just starting out, we’ve been at this for quite some time. We have the resources, the references, the business comparisons to ensure that your practice is established in the right place at the right time and in the right position for growth. Our detailed up-front analysis ensures that you are poised for profitability in an ever-changing world. We evaluate your business plan in reference to other practices that have succeeded and continue to thrive. We know what makes them work, and are eager to apply our knowledge to your business.
The decision to acquire a new practice calls for detailed study and analysis. Not only must you consider the financial health of the existing practice, but you should research many other factors in detail before negotiations begin. The quality of the practice, the level of technological infrastructure, and the potential for growth are just a few elements that we consider when making purchase recommendations to you. We work with you to identify key drivers and risks of any new acquisition so that you are comfortable the investment is sound.
There is no standing still in ever-changing terrain. What works for your practice today may be quite different from what becomes mandatory tomorrow. As your strategic partner, we review your current service areas, strategize on expansion and improvement, and work together to create long-term solutions and maximized value. Our multi-faceted approach ensures that a plan tailored to your unique needs and goals will continue to work for you many years into the future.
When you plan for life and business transitions, you are more likely to ease into new roles successfully. As you prepare to move out of a management role at your existing practice, or sell the practice altogether, our business strategists assess the value gap — that difference between the actual market value of your business and the value assigned to the practice by you — and determine how to effectively begin the new phase of your life’s journey. Finding the right person to acquire your business is important, but assessing the accurate value of your business ensures a smooth and successful evolution.

Critical Decision Making, Simplified.

Migrating your financial data to a cloud based system streamlines each element involved in the critical decision making process for your practice. Cloud based systems allow you to access your financial data remotely. Timely access to current data means that you can confidently review, analyze and act on current financial and operational metrics, anytime from anywhere.

I Don’t Sell Anything…I Am A Doctor!

Sales. Never have I encountered a word more disliked. Walk into a dental office and tell them you are there to sell something and everyone scatters like you have the plague, leaving that one poor soul who couldn’t avoid eye contact fast enough, to fend off the sales rep. with traditional gatekeeper techniques. It always...
