Take the leap! From Associate to Practice Owner


As the Owner of a dental practice, you hold the reins of your future, giving you greater clinical and professional freedom and securing control over your retirement. Acquiring a practice is a significant commitment, and by keeping your motivations at the forefront of your mind, you can steer your practice towards achieving these goals.


Though each Practice Owner may possess unique incentives, several common advantages make the prospect of purchasing a practice exhilarating. Let's explore them:


Empowerment in Decision-Making:


Owning your practice means being your own boss, granting you the authority to shape every aspect of your business. Free from the burdens of "office politics," you can create an environment aligned with your vision, choosing colleagues you resonate with, and crafting a schedule that suits you. Moreover, you become responsible for your patients' well-being.



Increased Earnings:


As an obvious but significant benefit, Practice Owners earn more than Associates. While money may not be the sole motivator for a dedicated dental professional, investing in your practice can lead to continuous growth of wealth. By efficiently managing patient flow and delegating tasks, you can maximise your earning potential without shouldering all the work yourself. Furthermore, owning both a business and a property becomes an appreciating asset over your career.



Affordable Practice Opportunities:


Finding your ideal practice may require exploring different locations beyond your current residence. Urban practices tend to come with higher price tags than those in quieter rural areas. By being flexible about location, you may find better value for money and achieve the lifestyle you've always aspired to.



Accessible Funding:


Securing financing for practice acquisition is more feasible than you might think. Working with a specialist broker can help you explore various loan options and negotiate deals that align with your budget.





Purchasing a practice should be viewed as an opportunity for success rather than a risk. It provides the chance to become a thriving business owner and reap the financial rewards you deserve. However, keep in mind that your skills must extend beyond dentistry alone. Being prepared to handle tasks such as CQC compliance, health & safety, marketing, and other operational aspects of running a dental practice is crucial for sustainable success.


With a realistic approach and careful planning, you can build a prosperous and fulfilling career that lasts for decades to come.
