Think of location
Location makes a big difference when you’re looking to buy and sell your practice. When you’re transitioning into a new practice pick a place that is important to you.
Consider your network of patients. If you already own a practice and are in change, think about the area where your patients live. Also consider foot traffic, local traffic, and neighborhood traffic; for example does the new location attract people because of where it is? Is it on a busy street or quiet quaint neighborhood?
Does the type of building seem important to you? Are you looking for an architectural wonder or simply an office within another set of buildings? These questions are important to consider before you look into buying a new practice.
Are you concerned with location? Does proximity to other dentists matter to you? Would you like to be closer or consider yourself the only dentist practitioner in the area?
Think about parking
Do you want a large parking lot with free parking or simply a pay to park? These factors will determine where your location is? It is important to know what you want before you get started.
Focus on the big picture
If you are getting ready to buy a new dental practice it is important to keep focus on the big picture. Keep awareness to what you want. What is your ideal location? How long do you want the process to take? Picture and in vision your perfect practice.
