Practices for Sale

Buying a practice

While the majority of “sales agents” are focused on the transaction process of selling a practice, our specialist team are here to assist you through the acquisitions process itself.


We assist buyers through all aspects of the acquisition process, from negotiating with sellers and agents, due diligence, assessment and survey of equipment, raising finance, legal & HR advice and support as well as business planning.


Whatever support you need, the 4dentists group has an unrivalled team of experts to assist you at every stage of the process.


Practice valuations

We have a tried and proven procedure for valuing covering a number of situations including:

  • Changes in a practice ownership e.g. one partner buying the other one(s) out, an Associate buying the practice etc.

  • Valuations as part of the change to a limited company structure.

  • Valuations for clients interested in buying a practice but need an independent valuation.


"Having recently gone through the process of selling a Dental Practice aided by practices4dentists I am pleased to report that the senior representative engaged discharged his duties in a responsible and professional manner and diligently proffered advice throughout the procurement of potential purchasers and the negotiations that followed.

The level of commitment to contact throughout the transaction was above and beyond normal office hours and this expedited the whole process to a satisfactory completion.

I can unreservedly endorse practices4dentists as an agent engaged in the selling of a Dental Practice."
