Why should you choose us to help you in what may be one of the most important decisions of your life or to help you add to your existing portfolio?

Our Experience

Dental Elite has now been established for five years, and our team of personable consultants have nearly a century’s worth of combined experience across all sectors of the dental industry which means that we can offer qualified advice drawn from decades of experience.

Consultants Who Value

We have a different structure to that of the other big agents in that each of our consultants values their own ‘book’ and as such if you have any queries about the practice valuation or even want to know whether there is a coffee shop nearby, the consultant handling the sale will nearly always have visited the practice personally so will be able to answer your questions promptly and knowledgeably.

Financing Your Dental Purchase

Making such a huge financial commitment to buy a practice can be a daunting experience, especially if you have need owned your own business before.  Dental Elite now operate DE Finance; a separate division of the business to the core Practice Sales Agency. DE Finance focus on negotiating practice finance for buyers seeking to acquire a dental practice not only on practices we are selling but also on practices you may find directly or through other agents.

Strategic Buyer Valuations

Every month we are approached by a number of buyers, often associates working in practices where the principal has offered them the opportunity to either buy or buy into the dental practice. Further, sometimes buyers are seeking to offer on a practice they have come across through another means but want confirmation of the right offer to put forward.

The role of the strategic buyer valuation is to offer buyers an independent opinion as to the value of a dental business prior to you placing an offer or as part of the negotiation process. We make a charge of £350 plus VAT for each practice considered in England & Wales and £450 plus VAT for practices in Scotland.

In return for the fee you will be provided with;

  1. A meeting at the practice with one of our consultants with you & the current business owner at a time to suit you both.
  2. A conference call with you and your partner(s) to discuss the valuation once all of the information has been provided and the pro’s and con’s of the opportunity presented as well as some guidance on placing an offer.
  3. A comprehensive report detailing the valuation, the valuation basis in a logical format and all of our findings regarding the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities open to the business presented tailored following the conference call to address all of your questions.
  4. An assurance that we will not represent the vendor within six months of taking the instruction unless you give us authority to do so.
  5. We will not provide or discuss with the vendor any of our findings unless you expressly ask us to do so.

Once the strategic buyer valuation has been completed, some buyers find that even if they do not move forward with project presented it offers them a better understanding for the next practice they choose to review or some have then chosen to instruct us to represent them through all of the negotiations until completion if they have felt unable to do so themselves.

Clear and Transparent Fee Structure

We have two types of buyer, our open market buyers and our elite buyers, who agree to pay our fee on behalf of the vendor. Anyone can be an elite buyer and we don’t charge a fee for an individual to become one, and as we receive our fee either way, we are completely impartial to the type of buyer that purchases the practice but elite Buyers do see more practices come for sale than whole market buyers.

If you are considering buying a dental practice you can search for practices and we recommend you register  as a buyer and you will be subscribed to the fortnightly e-shot for the latest practices for sale which will also include useful articles relevant to someone buying a dental practice.
