    3. If I pay that much, how much money will I make?
  • Make a recommendation on whether or not to move forward

FAQs

When Is The Best Time To Hire You?

Most dentists engage me when they have a practice in mind to analyze. But you can reach out to me before that process, or anytime you need a second set of eyes to validate the numbers and your decision.

What If I Don't Buy The First Practice I Look At? Do Your Prices Go Up?
No. We’ll look at as many practices as needed to find the right practice for you and the fee never change.
Do I Have To Hire Both A CPA And You For The Transition?

Nope. Between me and an attorney, you should be good to go. I act as the accountant throughout the transition and will help you transition to a full-time CPA to help with your taxes and bookkeeping once you become an owner.

Do You Need To Be In The Same City As Where I Want To Practice?

I have researched hundreds of practices in all 50 states and fortunately have been able to help clients all over the U.S. without needing to be physically present.

Pricing

My engagement is a flat-fee, regardless of the time it takes to close on your practice. The total fee is $7,500.

$2,500 is due up front as a retainer.

The remaining $5,000 is billed to your business after you own your practice.

There are no penalties to looking at one practice and deciding not to buy. The rate stays the same regardless of how long you take to search for the perfect practice.

Very Helpful

“I had my heart set on two practices that Brian helped talk me out of buying. I bought the third we looked at seriously and am glad I waited. Now that I’m an owner, I’m so glad he helped me avoid those practices that weren’t right for me. Brian really knows his stuff. I would recommend Brian to anyone who is thinking about
buying a practice.”

Awesome to Work With

“Brian helped me negotiate a sales price of $75,000 less than the asking price. He also noticed a mistake on the accounts receivable purchase that saved me another $6,300. His skill more than justified any fee he charged. My favorite part about working with Brian was his skill in explaining the how and why of everything we did during the transaction.
I loved working with Brian!”
