Secure Your Legacy with ADA Practice Transitions

ADA Practice Transitions Buy Sell Clinic

ADA Practice Transitions (ADAPT), a service offered by the ADA, makes the process of buying, selling, or joining a dental practice more predictable and successful. However, ADAPT isn’t just another listing service. Instead, it connects dentists who share a similar practice approach – which leads to more successful transitions and careers. 

ADAPT Matches Like-minded Buyers and Sellers 

ADAPT Advisors help practice owners find the right associate or buyer who will carry on their legacy. ADAPT also helps dentists purchase practices or find associateships where they can thrive.

What Dentists Say About ADA Practice Transitions

“ADAPT isn’t just matching you with an area. It’s matching you with a person, a practice, and a mindset. It was my wildest dream to find this match so early in my career.”

– Kristen Sciolino, DMD Maine, Incoming, Associate-to-Owner path, Lincoln, Maine

“The ADAPT process was much smoother, much more transparent, much more on top of communication and feedback. They are doing dentistry a big favor by allowing a better mechanism for people to move to a new practice.” 

– Joe Thibodeau, DMD, Lincoln, Maine, Owner, Selling

“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."

– Dan & Patty Johnson, Wisconsin, Owners, Selling
