With 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 three part online event will equip you with the tools to buy and run your own practice.

You can book all three parts of the event to gain a comprehensive guide to buying a dental practice, alternatively, you can book one or two of the events depending on your current needs.
