The process of buying a dental practice can be thrilling, overwhelming, and even a little confusing. Many dentists and physicians opt to purchase an existing dental/medical clinic to serve existing patients, however, having a large number of patients is not an assurance of success. There are other factors to consider, such as the amount of income you could expect to earn and the likelihood of growth (or decrease). These are the four most important considerations to help doctors choose the best practice when considering starting a solo practice through acquisition.
- Location and patient demographics:
One important factor to consider is the location of the practice and the patient demographics it serves. You will want to ensure that the practice is in an area that is convenient for you and your family, and that the patient population is one that you feel comfortable treating.
- Financial stability:
Before acquiring a practice, it’s important to carefully assess its financial stability. This includes reviewing the practice’s income and expenses, as well as any outstanding debts or liabilities. You will also want to consider the potential for growth and whether the practice has the resources to support it.
- Practice culture and staff:
The culture of a medical practice and the people who work there can have a significant impact on your experience as a practitioner. It’s important to get a sense of the practice’s culture and the dynamics among staff members before making a decision to acquire the practice.
- Legal and regulatory considerations:
There are a number of legal and regulatory issues that need to be taken into account when purchasing a medical practice. These may include contracts with payers, employment agreements, and compliance with state and federal regulations. It’s important to have a thorough understanding of these issues and to seek legal guidance as needed.
