This course is for attendees that are looking to venture into practice ownership by starting up from scratch (e.g. building out a building into a completely new dental or specialty practice). During the course, the instructors will walk attendees through how to locate and finance the build out of either a lease space or purchased building. Experts will advise on what to expect during the following steps to ownership: locating the perfect space, lease negotiations, financing the build out and/or commercial real estate mortgage, choosing project "partners", and opening your doors.

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Compare and contrast towns and areas with one another and determine which is best for a new practice
  • Understand demographics reports to measure potential profitability of a new practice
  • Discuss leasing or buying and understand the best route for your needs
  • Review and understand key points of a lease negotiation
  • Develop personal financial statements that have the best chance at getting approved
  • Budget the build out, understand the project period, and loan disbursement processes to stay on time and on budget
