How to Start a Dental Practice

tarting a new dental practice is a daunting task. It doesn’t have to be.

At Practice Real Estate Group we have helped hundreds of dentists start their first practice, expand to their fourth location, or even sell their business.

To make it even easier, we’ve broken it down the initial pieces into a few easy to follow steps to guide you through the process.

“We’re growing like wildfire. Practice Real Estate Group made the whole process easy for me. We had an initial meeting where we discussed what I wanted to get out of the practice, and they took it from there. I have lots of friends who have thought about opening over the past two years and I always recommend Practice Real Estate Group.”

Step 1. Getting Started

Our dental practice checklist compiles a list of all the individuals you will meet in your business journey. To ensure you pick the perfect location for your dental practice, our dental demographics reports show you exactly where your future customers are.
