What is the Value of my practice?... Value to whom?

Posted by Kevin Cumbus on Nov 20, 2019, 9:59:33 AM

I have been in the business of valuing and selling dental practices since 2007. Over that time a lot has changed. 

In 2007, I joined well-established dental practice valuation and transition company. We worked exclusively with dentists to help them establish a value for their business for the purposes of either a 100% sale or for a buy-in from the associate or future partner. Our valuation process was always the same. We would request a stack of documents, including tax returns, P&Ls, historical production and collections reports, and payer by source reports. In return our client would mail us 7-11 inches of paper to wade through. We would pour all of this data into a financial model and turn it into information. Next, we would work with the doctor to establish the net income from the business then perform 7 intricate valuations methodologies and weigh each one based on various qualitative aspects of the business. It was a thorough and rigorous process that took days to complete.
