Buyers, meet sellers. Sellers, meet buyers.
Much more than matchmaking
If it’s time to sell up, you want to be confident that you’re getting a great deal and leaving the practice in good hands. As a buyer, you’re in a competitive market - but the perfect practice is out there. Somewhere.
Which is why our unique blend of specialists are on hand to guide you through the whole process.
Here to help at every stage
It doesn’t matter whether you’re buying or selling, whether you’re barely beyond the daydreaming stage or you’re already well on your way.
Our specialist sales agents, valuers, financial advisers, accountants and lawyers have completed hundreds of successful dental practice sales and we’re ready to do the same for you.
Of course, professional ethics mean we can’t do everything for both buyer and seller of the same practice but let’s have a chat: if we can’t act for you ourselves, we’ll always point you towards someone we know will do a good job.
When you’re embarking on a major transaction - and a dental practice is pretty major - you just want to know you’re buying or selling at a fair price.
We pride ourselves on ethical, transparent valuations for buyers and sellers, to give you peace of mind.
Selling your dental practice
Thinking about selling up? We can give you the inside track on when and how to get your practice shipshape, help you decide whether to sell to a corporate, an associate or on the open market and produce a comprehensive valuation.
Then we’ll market it to our database of buyers to find the perfect fit. From there, our experienced team can steer a course through the whole process.
Selling a dental practice to an associate
A seamless transition for patients and staff
“— Adelle McElrath, retired practice owner, Cheshire
The service has been fantastic and you truly provided a hand-holding service throughout. A must for anyone selling to a corporate.”
Selling a dental practice on the open market
“— Mark Woodger, former practice owner, Birchwood, Warrington
Having spent years building the practice, it was important to us we found someone to take good care of our team and patients. PFM Dental took the time to understand who we were looking for and helped us market accordingly.”
Buying a dental practice
It’s not easy finding your dream practice. Our priority buyers find out first what’s fresh on the market, giving you a head start on discovering the perfect business for you.
Finance and insurance for buyers
We’re past masters at helping you raise the finance you need to buy that practice, not to mention getting the protection you’ll need as a business owner.
Legal expertise you can trust
Our experts know dental sales and purchases inside out - because we only work for dentists. We’ll deal with the complex details and keep you in control and up to speed. And we’ll do it in plain English too.
Accountancy expertise for dentists
Getting the numbers right is always vital - and it’s never more complex than when you’re buying or selling a practice.
Our financial team can get your accounts in shape as you go through your purchase. Once you’ve bought the business, why not stay in touch? We only work for dentists, so we use our specialist knowledge to actively make sure you’re always up to date with legislation and allowances.
And if you’re going through the buying process, talk to us about expert help with getting finance in place, specialist legal services, advice on insurance and providing expert accountancy during and after the deal.
Wealth management for the future
Once you’ve inked the deal, chat to our wealth management team.
Planning for the future is a complicated challenge, especially with the way dentists’ finances are structured. As specialists, we know all the ins and outs and we’re here to make the most of your money.
