Synopsis:
This course is designed to educate the young dentist (0-10 years out of dental school) on the various stages of their early career. The course will first focus on associate agreements and the issues and concerns a young dentist must be aware of prior to signing the agreement. The course will then turn to the issues one faces when attempting to buy into a practice and become a partner. The course will view in depth the many compensation scenarios, buy-in concerns, structural issues, buy out scenarios as well as additional major concerns a dentist needs to know about prior to entering into a partnership or shareholder agreement. Next, the course will briefly focus on dental practice start ups and some of the unique issues a dentist faces when attempting to start up a dental practice. Finally, the course will review in depth the issues a buyer faces when acquiring a dental practice, either as a buy-in situation or as a complete acquisition. The focus will be on key issues that should be contained in your purchase agreement and some of the numerous pitfalls you need to be aware of prior to closing on your acquisition.

Jason does an excellent job of laying out the most important points in associate, partnership, and acquisitions. I just wish I would have listened to this 3 years ago. Well worth the $7!

Mr. Wood obviously has an "in the middle approach" to giving an overview to buyers, sellers, associates and so forth. I think that he provides an excellent basic outline of the whole enchilada for anyone looking into transitions on all levels.
Wish I had watched it earlier in my career
