How to Increase Practice Value

Every dentist I speak with who owns their practice has high hopes of paying off their debts someday and then selling the practice. Paying off debt not only releases a tremendous amount of stress off their shoulders but there is also another reason for wanting to sell their practice.

You are taking wonderful care of your patients when you put profit first!

While this may feel unintuitive, the reason for this is quite simple: stress is challenging to manage and can negatively impact relationship dynamics (which can not only affect your work, but also your life outside of the workplace). Relationships with patients are no exception to this! When you are feeling comfortable and confident in your cash flow and profit margins, you will be able to fully focus on providing the best care that you can for your patients.
