Dental Care Alliance: The Practice Transition Process
We’ve been coordinating dental office sales, mergers, and affiliations for more than 25 years. That gives us a lot of experience with the dental practice transition process and the questions you will have.
We understand that it’s often an emotional decision as well as a business decision when you choose to explore a new business model for your practice. The first step is to submit the form on this page so we can have one of our practice transition experts contact you for a preliminary conversation. We’ll ask you some questions about your business and your goals, and will answer the questions you have for us. We promise you that conversation will be confidential; at the end of the call, we can set up a time for a complimentary appraisal of your dental office and discuss the next steps.
Those next steps will vary depending on whether your goals. We’ve developed practice transition models to meet different dentists’ goals, such as:
Seeking to sell your dental practice or group, continue working, and retire within a few years
Seeking to sell your dental practice and retire immediately
Seeking to sell your dental practice and relocate to another dental office
Seeking to expand your business by adding associates and/or more dental offices
In each case, Dental Care Alliance has the experience and the resources to make the transition process smooth. You retain full clinical autonomy, while we ensure you have the tools and support you need to provide excellent patient care and customer service.

Being a sole practitioner for 17 years with multiple locations in different cities was a wonderful opportunity and experience for me. I absolutely loved every minute of it. During those 17 years, I thought I had seen everything, and overcome pretty much every challenge imaginable, but who could have imagined COVID-19 and the economic struggles we are all facing in 2020?
Having DCA as a business partner during this unprecedented tragedy has provided a wealth of support, expertise and team work I could never have experienced as a sole practitioner. During this difficult time, DCA has shown tremendous support to staff, has leveraged powerful supply chain support, answered every call and offered the depth of experience only a seasoned DSO can offer.
Myself and my entire team deeply appreciate all DCA has done and continues to do as we all work to come out of this struggle together. It is a pleasure to work with the professionals at all levels of DCA and we note the sincere and genuine leadership. I am happy to have somewhere to turn for solutions I could not possibly offer on my own as a single proprietor.
