Get Started

Here is what dentists have to say about ADA Practice Transitions

"Thank you for having this service available. It has made all the stress of trying to find a new position stress-free!" – Member Dentist

"I highly, extremely recommend ADAPT. Five stars! This worked for me and I know [my match] feels the same way. The big companies, you pay a big chunk of money right off the bat not knowing what you're going to get. It hasn't been that way with ADAPT." - Member Dentist

"Suzanne [ADA Advisor] has had our best interests in mind and it hasn't been difficult to trust her suggestions. I feel like she gets who we are and who would be a good match for us, on levels even deeper than dentistry." – Member Dentist
