Buying a dental practice

Prepare yourself for practice ownership

Friday 11 May 2018  |  London



With the changes to the economic landscape, dental regulation and legal red tape, the practice purchase process has become progressively burdensome on buyers and sellers alike. It is increasingly important to prepare yourself in advance to reduce the stress and strain placed on you at the point of purchase and the first few months of ownership.

Whether you are considering buying your own practice in the near or medium-term future, this workshop will equip you with the tools to buy and run your own practice.

Learning objectives

  • Understand the legal process of buying a practice
  • Be able to navigate the regulatory steps you will need to take and ongoing compliance
  • Understand your obligations as an employer
  • Be aware of ongoing development possibilities for your new practice.
