Transition Talk is a podcast about dental practice transitions. Like we do for our clients, in this podcast, we will provide guidance, tips, and real-life scenarios (both good and bad) to encourage you and to help you navigate the sometimes-messy path to dental practice ownership!
TT Ep 95 - Personal Wins Over Societal Perfection with Dr. Christy Marcello
Dr. Christy Marcello is the only female specialist dual trained in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics in the state of Louisiana. And as a practice owner, wife and mom, she understands the weight and stress that many women endure as they seek perfection. Tune in to hear her story and how she strives to be not the best, but rather be the best version of herself.
TT Ep 94 - Goodwill’s Role in Your Transition
Not only is goodwill a large contributing factor to the overall practice value, but because it’s intangible, the handoff between the buyer and seller isn’t as simple as handing over the keys. Yet, it has to be addressed. In this episode, Christy and Charles discuss why goodwill matters, when it’s worth more or less, what sellers may be expected to do to transition goodwill, what buyers can reasonably ask for and ways a buyer and seller can tarnish goodwill.
TT Ep 93 - It’s Not a Sprint to the Finish
We get it. You are ready to close that deal. Whether it’s excitement, anxiety or another feeling or reason, many people just want to get through their dental transition and close the deal as quickly as possible. However, speeding through the process can lead to oversight of important details and even complications to the overall transition. NDP’s Head of Consulting Bridget Schwebke joins Christy on this episode to walk through some common occurrences and provide tips on how to slow down and treat each phase with diligence.
TT Ep 92 - Continuing the Family Legacy
Dental transitions between family members come with their own set of expectations, obstacles and even perks. Charles welcomes a father-son duo, Drs. Rick and Kyle Washut, to share their transition story, the lessons learned and wins along the way.
TT Ep 91 - Couples in Dentistry: Empower and Succeed Together
In the world of dentistry, it’s not uncommon to see two young people meet in dental school and journey together into their careers. That’s where it began for Drs. Todd and Terrah Larrabee, owners of a family dentistry and orthodontic practice and parents of two boys. Their message to any other couples in dentistry is clear: Practice ownership is about creating your own dream rather than fitting into someone else’s. If you desire it, find a way to make it happen. Tune in for their full story.
TT Ep 90 - Female Practice Owners: Doing It All
While more women than ever are entering the field of dentistry, there’s still some hesitancy among women about becoming a practice owner. With self-doubt obscuring the picture, many female dentists wonder how to navigate a successful career, build a thriving practice and achieve “mom of the year” status. Angie Svitak, Cain Watters & Associates Financial Planner, joins Christy on this empowering episode to show female dentists that with the right amount of confidence, prioritization and support, it’s 100% possible to achieve their goals.
