Plan Your Exit Strategy [Video]

From the ADA BIG Idea 2019: Transitions Conference

Building a practice doesn’t happen overnight. Every owner builds their own personal and unique story along the way. They develop their own style and philosophies that make a practice something special, one patient at a time. Building is one thing, but transitioning what you value in your practice is something entirely different.

In this recording from the ADA BIG Idea 2019: Transitions conference, Kirk Dewart teaches you the right time to formulate a plan, what you should look for in an associate or buyer, how you can help the buyer prepare, and helps you establish realistic expectations for preserving your legacy.
