Dental Retirement or Transitioning

Are you planning to transition or sell your dental practice and retire within the next 5-10 years? The value of your practice at the time of sale will largely be predicated on the details in the dental office lease, and how that lease is set up.

Important Considerations when Planning for Dental Retirement

  • Does your office lease grant your landlord to rights to your practice sale proceeds?
  • Can the landlord deny your request to sell the practice altogether and terminate the lease agreement? Can they kick you out of the building with only 30 days’ notice?
  • Are there clauses in your current dental office lease that will reduce the value of your practice in the eyes of the buyer due to the risks they present, ex. a ‘Relocation’ or ‘Demolition’ clause?
  • Does your lease have the proper amount of term and/or options to renew to support the purchase price you seek? ‘Term’ is a key component for anyone buying a dental practice, financing acquisitions through banks.
  • Does your dental office lease include terms that positively support a new dentist, like expansion rights, death and disability protection, and use clause protection.

If you’re planning to retire or sell your practice in the next 5-10 years, ensure your lease supports your transition plans.
