TPO 71 Can Five Operatories Sustain a Group Practice?
New co-host Steven Beard joins Payton today. They join forces to defeat the associate troubles of our real-guest-fake-name Darth Vader. After taking a pay cut as an associate, he's taking his search for practice ownership more seriously. While developing clinical skills as fast as possible, Payton helps him narrow the criterion for a practice to buy.
6-39 Expertly Matching the Right Buyer with the Right Seller
An expert matchmaking service for practice owners, practice buyers, and associates? In a time when matchmaking services were becoming the norm, founder Thad Miller brought together a team of business valuation experts, real estate brokers, and more to found DDS Match. Singles can connect with singles; hotel buyers can connect with hotel sellers...why can't practice owners easily connect with buyers and associates? Why doesn't this exist? Now, it does.
PUW 93 A $1.2MM Practice for $400k? Part I
Real-doc-fake-name Brittany and her sister are overwhelmed with their new practice. This periodontal practice was doing $1.2MM, and they're now converting into a General/Periodontal hybrid. Trying to implement new systems, and coasting on whatever organic marketing the seller had going, the vision is not panning out. Emotionally underwater, how is Suzanne going to get Brittany excited about her deal?
TPO 70 Richard's Recent Changes
Payton brings our own Dr. Richard Low on the show. Richard's recently gone through a enormous transition. Despite his US Army involvement and being in residency for so long, he's had plenty of transitions to speak to. PPO, fee-for-service, startups, acquisitions...Richard helps us explore all these possibilities, and why it has to make sense to *you*; not anyone else.
6-38 The Beauty of Long Form Video, with Randy Alvarez
Host of The Wellness Hour and masterful media coach to hundreds of providers, Randy Alvarez joins us today. He shares about The Wellness Hours' own origins, the insane ROI of his platform, and the power of long format video in general.
PUW 92 *The* Insurance Guru
Suzanne's longtime friend and colleague Clint Johnson joins us. CEO and owner of Profitable PPO's, we consider Clint to be *the* "insurance guru". Having helped providers save millions of dollars, Clint talks the most profitable way to get into network, what sellers don't know about their own credentials, plus a special for Shared Practices listeners.
So much value
Shared Practices is a fantastic podcast that is packed with value for dentists interested in ownership.
