Meet the DBA Team



You got through college, survived dental school, and possibly a residency, and now you’re standing on the precipice of one of the most impactful career decisions you’ll ever make – buying a dental practice.

You’ve made so many good decisions already in life, you should feel good about where you are. So, congratulations.

Now, don’t screw it all up.

The stakes to buy the right practice for you are high. Get this step wrong and you’re looking at stress, money worries, angry staff and patients, and a frustrated family that doesn’t see you as much as they’d like.

This is where we come in!

We guide dentists through the process of analyzing, negotiating, and purchasing the right dental practice. The right dental practice can help you be happy, fulfilled, relaxed, wealthy, and thriving in your career:  positively impacting the lives of your patients and living the life of your dreams.

Let’s Get Started

We’ve helped hundreds of dentists go through the process that you are contemplating. We can help you too.

Prior to doing this, I was an accountant and Certified Financial Planner™ at two different dental CPA firms. I have an MBA from the University of Michigan and an undergrad from Brigham Young University. I’m married with four kids and live in Salt Lake City.

I’d be honored to help guide you through the process of buying the right dental practice. Reach out anytime.
