Watson Brown

A Team of Trusted Advisors by Tina Cauller

Watson Brown is a dental transition firm that has facilitated hundreds of transitions and has extensive experience with practice sales , startups , partnerships , associateships , dental practice appraisals , refinances and debt consolidation .

Dentists probably understand better than most people that

some endeavors should be left to trained professionals .
Patients trust dentists to provide expert care precisely because they have special training and expertise in dentistry .
Similarly , selling and appraising a dental practice requires special expertise . Practice transitions vary from bringing on an associate or partner to selling the dental practice outright . Each practice transition involves several facets , such as accounting , legal , and tax considerations . A successful transition depends on expert guidance to represent your individual interests , reduce unnecessary legal and tax liabilities , and maximize the sales price . Since each practice transition is unique , all dentists should hire a team of trusted advisors to help them avoid potential pitfalls .
