Our Team

Dr. Dana Fort DDS

Client Service Coordinator – Valuations/Negotiations

Hi! I’m a 2007 graduate from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry. Prior to helping buyers like you, I practiced general dentistry as an owner while also starting and selling a business that sold products for babies. I have experience in both the selling and transitioning of dental practices as well as the merger and acquisition of my business to a large corporation. I love my family and four kids, the Chicago lakefront, cooking, and traveling. I’m excited and honored to help you on your ownership journey.

Dr. Sapna Amin DDS

Client Service Coordinator – Valuations/Negotiations

I am Dr. Sapna Amin, based in the Dallas suburbs. After graduating from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 2008, I worked in a private practice as an associate. I bought a solo practice in 2012 and merged practices with a DSO in 2021. At DBA, I’m dedicated to helping other buyers in acquiring their dream practice like I did! I also serve as a co-leader for the DFW Mommy Dentist in Business regional group. When I am not working, I enjoy traveling with my husband and daughter, cheering on the OU Sooner football team and prioritizing fitness and wellness.

I have been very involved in the dental world throughout my life so I am excited to work closely with you to open up your practice. Prior to this, I was a Dental Hygienist, so I have seen how successful dental practices run. My husband graduated dental school Spring of 2021, so this work is very close to my heart. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my husband, skiing, being outdoors and traveling to new places.
