    Episode 83 - Jared Duckett and Bill Ladd on Dental Practice Acquisition and Ownership Strategies

    Episode 83 - Jared Duckett and Bill Ladd on Dental Practice Acquisition and Ownership Strategies

    Jared Duckett and Bill Ladd are CPAs, partners and co-founders of Duckett Ladd, LLP, a dental-focused accounting firm serving dentists nationwide.

    In this episode, the Amigos chat with Jared and Bill about the business and financial steps dentists should consider when preparing to transition into practice ownership, while owing a practice and then when they’re ready to transition out of practice ownership. Since the process can be quite overwhelming, Jared and Bill have formed, in their words, a “6 phase approach” to tackling the dental practice ownership world. Phases 1-3 are considered the ‘pre-acquisition stages’, meaning, what to think of before investing time and money into an office space and/or a practice. Phase 4 concerns what needs to be addressed once a dentist has acquired a practice. Phase 5 is geared towards making sure the practice is growing and profitable. Lastly, Phase 6 concerns considerations when they are ready to sell the dental practice.

    Episode 80 - Rob and Paul “The Return Edition”

    The Dental Amigos are excited to finally be back in the studio in-person and together. In this episode, Rob and Paul chat about life post-Covid and the importance of in-person work and communication, specifically in the dental industry.

    It’s no secret that since March 2020, the world has become a different place, and everyone has had to adapt to a new way of living. Not only did practice owners have to figure out how to handle their own lives, but also find ways to best keep their practice open along with protecting their staff and patients.

    In this episode, the Amigos discuss three major themes to help practice owners navigate life post-Covid. First, Paul talks about the changes he made to his own dental practices to adjust to the frequent changes in the laws and regulations concerning the practice of dentistry. Second, the Amigos speak about new trends in dental practice transitions that have become apparent post-Covid and how all dentists can become more educated about their industry. Finally, the Amigos touch on the changes they’ve noticed in associate agreements and what employers and employees should be looking for and thinking about moving forward.

    The Dental Amigos host Gary Salman, Chief Executive Officer of Black Talon Security, to discuss how dental practice owners can prevent cyberattacks and protect their data. Black Talon is a cybersecurity consulting firm that focuses on the dental industry.

    Now more than ever dentists have to consider how they can protect themselves and their practices from sophisticated hackers who steal patient data and install dangerous malware.

    In this episode, the Amigos and Gary discuss how tools like predictive threat intelligence can help protect dental practice computers. They talk about the differences between an IT company and a cybersecurity company. And finally, the team explains why practice owners should educate their employees to create a human firewall that prevents malicious actors from accessing their computers.
