On today’s episode, we have a special 2-part series featuring Kyle Francis, Matt Mulcock, Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz and Mark, titled, “Industry Consolidation: Should you ride out the wave or sell your practice?”
The episode primarily addressed four key themes in the dental industry. First, it discussed the value of dental practices and the impact of various factors like capacity and profitability on their valuation. The conversation then shifted to examining the influence of consolidation in the industry, particularly with the involvement of Dental Service Organizations (DSOs) and private equity. The third theme focused on the personal and emotional aspects of selling a dental practice, emphasizing the importance of aligning financial decisions with personal values and goals. Finally, the discussion explored various transaction styles, such as complete affiliation, joint ventures, and equity roles, and how these impact dentists differently based on their career stage and personal circumstances. The overarching narrative centered on the need for dentists to be informed and organized in their approach to practice valuation and sale, regardless of their stance on DSOs.
