What a great way to start a Monday by welcoming a pediatric dentist into her first office! Our first-time practice owner walked not only into practice ownership but also purchased the underlying unit. 💪💪Way to go! For a lot of our first-time practice owners, they are already thinking of ways to plant roots and grow. 🤔

✔️If you are eyeing your second, fifth or even 10th location, come to our advanced practice ownership & expansion bootcamp on Friday, October 7th as we talk about a host of key topics including how to strategically expand so that you can walk away profitable (not just busier!). We will have a leadership workshop ON SITE along with marketing/branding workshop and a "real talk" about preparing your practice for your grand finale-- your exit plan.

✔️ If you are thinking about a satellite location or thinking about partnering up as a way to grow, STOP!! You absolutely do not want to miss this seminar. Our key note lecturers are ready to give you an intense "deep dive", jam packed in a convenient 1 day seminar in the lap of luxury.

Today, we had the pleasure of consulting a very experienced multi-practice owner about growing pains including the benefits (and necessity!) of trademarking the practice name. For more tips & explanation of items often needed but overlooked by seasoned dental practice owners, come to our Dental Acquisition and Expansion bootcamp at the beautiful Army Navy Country Club in Arlington Virginia on Friday, October 7th.

We have a heavy line up of speakers along with breakout sessions, workshops in the lap of luxury complete with a gourmet selection of entrees for breakfast followed by a 3 course lunch.

Happy closing week to 2 dental practice buyers entering practice ownership for the first time and one also becoming a commercial real estate owner. If you are wondering whether buying commercial real estate is the right choice for you, come to our advanced practice ownership & expansion bootcamp on Friday, October 7th as we talk about a quick way to determine your ROI and whether there are other ways/avenues to fully benefit from passive income through real estate ownership. Early bird tickets are going fast. Buy now to take advantage of a $100 in savings before prices increase June 14th.

Attention experienced practice owners: are you looking to strategically expand and grow your practices but wonder how to do it without worrying about:

✅ Staff overturn (especially associates);

✅How to effectively continue your expansion (should you open a de novo practice or expand through acquisition 🤔);

✅Whether you are moving too fast (or too slow) in achieving your multi-practice goals and how that can affect your profitability;

✅Whether you are making a mistake leasing versus renting your practice's real estate 💸;

✅Not branding your practices consistently;

✅Malpractice coverage issues (and costs) in adding associates

✅Credentialing and keeping up with current insurance changes;

✅ Giving it your "all" as a consistent leader to your staff because you feel like you may be spreading yourself too thin 🤦;

✅ How to effectively finance your expansion goals;

✅ Your "end-game" and whether you are properly strategizing growth for a strong exit strategy (whether to a private practice or DSO);

✅ Worrying about whether you are going to switch professions to a professional juggler rather than a multi-practice owner when it's all said and done 🤹‍♀;

If you share any of these concerns, then this bootcamp is for you. 💪

Join us in the lap of luxury as we engage you in an intensive bootcamp experience on Friday, October 7th at the prestigious Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Virginia.

We've stacked the deck with local subject matter experts who are going to walk you through key topics in a comprehensive, all day event, complete with lectures, a leadership workshop and break out sessions with our experts.

Guests will be welcomed to a beautiful members-only venue overlooking the Nation's Capitol with a warm, plated breakfast, followed by a gourmet, three course lunch (entrée choices will be selected at ticketing). The event will span the 5 Star ballroom through the outdoor terrace that overlooks the golf course where elite Washingtonians and past presidents have played.

Tickets are expected to go fast for this one-of-a-kind event. Save $100 by taking advantage of early bird pricing now through June 13th before prices increase. 👀 We can't wait to see you there.

Go here for a detailed summary, venue photos, and ticketing.

Stay tuned for my book! Buyers need to *select* and *hire* their *own* teams. Dual representation is not always a good fit! However, be careful of "buyer reps" who claim not to be a licensed or degreed professional but just someone who has done hundreds of deals. So, what? They could have been hundreds of *bad* deals!

When reviewing restrictive covenants, a lot of potential healthcare associates feel a sense of defeat or dread at signing away their ability to work at another practice close to their home if things don't work out. We can help. www.thegillisfirm.com

01/19/2022

Which scares you more? Visiting your dentist or scheduling a consultation with your attorney?

If you're a dentist, chances are you prefer to do a deep clean of your operatories, your car, your home and your dog's bed before you pick up the telephone to talk to your lawyer.

Don't worry, we get it.

-->Dentists want transparency in fees and high-quality legal care when they need it most with their own practice acquisitions/sales, lease reviews, partnership changes and associate contract reviews.

-->Dentists often feel "taken advantage of" by industry professionals who seem to increase fees when they find out they are talking to a dentist.

Some other firms that advertise flat-fees, fee caps or variations of this fee model rubber-stamp deals without providing full advocacy or education because they want to shift to the next case or are concerned with upsetting referral sources by raising critical concerns with the case they are entrusted to handle. Imagine if you did dentistry on your patients that way.

We work with dentists every day who feel confident in our expertise and who entrust us with major business decisions because we work hard to help them achieve positive results.

Come see for yourself. If you are looking to:

--> Sell your practice to a private buyer or DSO;

-->Create an exit strategy with your existing partners;

--> Buy a practice (first time buyers are welcome!);

--> Start up a new practice;

--> Enter into a partnership with another dentist; or

-->Secure help for your employee agreement review (whether straight out of dental school, a seasoned associate or specialist)
