5 Ways to Make Your Practice Sellable

By Susan Spear
What makes a dental practice sellable in today’s marketplace? A good place to start is to understand and quantify your assets both tangible and intangible. Tangible assets or “hard” assets are the equipment, instrumentation, supplies, computers, software, office lease and leasehold improvements such as cabinetry, office furnishing and décor. Intangible assets or “goodwill” are those assets that include management and operational practices, quality staff, owner’s commitment to help with transitioning patients, location of the practice where the buyer wants to practice, and other assets such as the practice name and reputation. Every asset is important to the value of your practice.

While laws and rules can seem like tedious topics, they have a major impact on your day-to-day practice. It’s important to be informed of their effects.
