The Mergers and Acquisitions (“M&A”) world is largely cyclical. There are ups and downs and good times and bad to sell one’s business. Over the last 5 years, we have only seen dental practice values increase. So, the question we are often asked is, “How much longer can they go up?”
If you spend too much time watching the news or reading the financial press, it can feel as though we are only one day away from financial ruin, but the story in the dental economy is a different one. Demand is high across all specialties and GP practices and new capital is entering the market with great regularity, keeping valuations high, for now.
