With more than 55 years combined experience, Mr. Klewans and Mr. Skerritt have the knowledge and expertise to successfully navigate the complexities of dental practice transitions. We represent dental and medical practitioners on the business side of their practice, throughout the life cycle of their professional career.

There are a multitude of decisions to make when running a dental or medical practice, many of which are not typical of other industries. The process of buying, selling, or managing a dental practice can take on a life of its own, resulting in an exciting, yet challenging journey. While every journey is unique, we have vast experience in this area and have helped many dentists and physicians with the complex decisions that are required to run a dental or medical practice.

When establishing a practice and managing ongoing operations dental and medical practitioners must follow very specific rules. These rules may dictate how the business entity may be owned and by whom, how the business may be named or where it may operate, or what types of business arrangements practitioners may have with other providers outside of their practices.
