Episode 67: How To Buy A Dental Practice With Hunter Smith

There comes a time in the life of every dental practice when one practice just isn’t

Which brings you to the next logical step — expansion.

Maybe acquiring your first (or yet another) practice has been on the top of your goals for 2017. Or maybe you’re not quite there yet.

Regardless, knowing how to navigate the often turbulent waters of practice acquisition is an important skill to build a thriving practice now and for many years to come.

Today I’m excited to share my conversation with Hunter Smith owner of the Southern Dental Group.

What he’s been able to do at the young age of 28 is nothing short of amazing.

You may remember him from episode 38 of Dentist Metrics where he talked about his process on how he was able to acquire 5 practices.

In the short time since we’ve last talked, he’s acquired yet another practice and has positioned himself to continue to invest in his future while sharing what he’s learned along the way.

Even if you’re not “ready” to acquire a practice yet , I know you’ll get a ton out of our conversation .
