Valuing Dental Practices

As of 2006 there were more than 160,000 practicing dentists of all types in the United States, 63 percent of whom ran practices in which they were the only licensed dentist. With government oversight and professional licensing alone dentistry practices can be an appraisal challenge. Add in capital expenses, professional and personal goodwill, and insurance requirements – as both a provider of care and retainer of malpractice coverage, and the world of dentistry can suddenly become an appraiser’s nightmare. Fortunately, BVR assembled an all-star panel to provide the guidance needed to deal with the numerous and complicated obstacles presented by valuing dental practices.

On May 14, 2009, James Andersen and Ron Seigneur, both highly experienced expert appraisers, joined Dr. Stephen Persichetti, a practicing dentist and professor of dental practice management, for a 100-minute program outlining the ins and outs of dental practice valuation. This panel delivered all the hands-on how-to knowledge needed to ensure your next dental practice valuation is clear, logical, and defensible.
