PFM Dental are highly regarded within the practice sales sector. We have undertaken practice valuations for many years but continue to be at the forefront of modern valuation methods including ‘EBITDA’ . A key strength which makes us the first choice agent for many is our integrated legal service. No longer do you need to rely on third party solicitors. Our legal team work closely with the practice sales department to ensure your sale completes as smoothly and quickly as possible. We offer nationwide coverage and 1000’s of registered buyers. Our innovative ‘priority buyers’ scheme can ensure maximum interest in your practice and a fee free sale.

Dentists looking for financial advice are assured that PFM Dental offers several key advantages. We are one of very few companies to have achieved Chartered Financial Planner status. Furthermore, we offer this service exclusively for dentists, ensuring the highest level of technical advice, adviser qualifications and ethical standards. You can rely on us to understand specialist areas of advice such as the NHS Pension and Lifetime Pension Allowance.  Our pension and investment services are ideal for clients who require a regular review service. We also provide help for associates purchasing a practice.

PFM Dental Legal was established primarily to improve the speed and efficiency of the practice sale process. Our legal department works closely with our practice sales team to avoid the pitfalls of using a third party solicitor. We have developed innovative and practical solutions to help you sell your practice. For example, we offer a dedicated member of staff to assist with the ‘due diligence’ process. Our team has extensive experience in dental practice sale and purchase transactions including NHS contract transfers and CQC issues. We have in-house property solicitors on hand to help with the freehold or leasehold property requirements. We also provide legal advice for dentists buying a practice.

Our Dental Accountancy division has grown to be one of the largest specialist dental accountants in the UK. We provide Chartered Accountancy services for practice owners and associates. Our fees are highly competitive and our friendly team go out of their way to ensure all clients receive proactive advice in addition to accounts preparation. We have helped many associates buy a practice and offer projections for a proposed purchase. For practice owners an annual meeting is a helpful way to discuss business strategy and ‘remuneration’ options.
