Dental practices remain a solid source for potential valuation engagements

BVWireIssue #80-2
May 14, 2009

Why? For starters, dental practices are largely sole proprietorships owned by Baby Boomers who are rapidly nearing retirement. With this in mind, BV experts James Andersen and Ron Seigneur will join Dr. Stephen Persichetti, a practicing dentist and professor of dental practice management, on Thursday, May 14, for Valuing Dental Practices, a 100-minute BVR teleconference at 10:00am PT/1:00PM ET. 

The panel will focus on classic considerations as well as emerging trends in dentistry valuation through discussions of transactional versus litigation valuations, specialty versus general practices, and more. A free synopsis of Pratt’s Stats® transaction data is available for dental practices (SIC 8021) over the past 8 years at the webpage for this teleconference. This free download represents a small sampling of the articles, court cases, and data resources made available to attendees of this teleconference.

Also on deck from BVR in the weeks ahead, is the 11th Annual FAE/BVR Business Valuation Conference, featuring Darrell Dorrell, Ashok Abbott, Jim Hitchner, Michael Kaplan, and other professional leaders. This two-day live event, taking place on May 18-19 in New York City, brings together BVR’s expertise with insiders from the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountant’s Foundation for Accounting Education. Then, on Thursday, May 21, 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET, BVR will offer a recast of Dr. Ashok Abbott’s FAE/BVR session, Liquidity Crisis and Valuation Practices. A live Q&A will follow this presentation. Two CPE credits are available for this 100-minute teleconference. To register or find more information, click here.
