Buying and selling a dental practice

Whether you are an individual dentist buying your first practice, a corporate group building your portfolio or a practice owner seeking to dispose of your practice, our experienced team is here to help.

We understand that for some of our clients, this will be a once in a lifetime transaction. We will guide you through each step of the process.

For more experienced clients, we will work with your acquisitions and disposals team to provide a bespoke service personalised to your requirements.  

Our friendly, approachable and accessible team will be proactive in driving the transaction forward, working with your accountants, lender and sales agent to overcome any obstacles and complete the transaction as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

Our specialist team handles dental practice acquisitions and sales on a day to day basis, meaning that we can pre-empt many of the issues that commonly arise before they become problematic.

We assist with:

  • Due diligence
  • CQC registration requirements
  • Transferring NHS contracts
  • Negotiation of business sale and transfer agreements which are tailored to the particular commercial and regulatory framework within which dental practices operate
  • Employee transfers
  • Associate agreements for sellers who continue to work in the practice after completion
  • Practice property – whether there is to be a sale and purchase of freehold surgery premises, the assignment of a lease or the grant of a new lease, we will ensure that the property aspects of the transaction are completed simultaneously with the business sale and purchase.

    “An exceptional service from start to completion. Alison was available anytime on the phone and I genuinely did not have to leave an answerphone message once. Hempsons know the dental business inside out and I have no hesitation recommending them to handle your practice sale. The fees are also very reasonable compared to their competitors.”
