Why partner with us for your Transition?

The KLAS Difference

We are results driven.  Here is what sets us apart from the rest..

You will be surrounded by trusted experts with integrity

We work with partners in all facets of dental practice transitions and management to ensure we are able to support you whenever you need us.  Some transition companies are solely focused on the practice transition and really do not understand the business of dentistry and how the real estate plays into the process of finding the right buyer and getting the most out of the time and investment you've made your whole career.

We engage in respectable deals only

We want Seller and Buyer to have long lasting rapport and trust through transparency and encourage Buyers to have good due diligence to mitigate dismay at the 11th hour.  The Industry norm is to push deals through quickly without Buyer’s proper due diligence or even legal representation which creates tremendous liability for both Seller and Buyer.

Zero retainer or deposit fees

Put simply, there will be more money in your pocket when you partner with KLAS when buying your practice.  The industry often charges $3k-$5k and up to as much as $10k just to engage Practice Transition services on the front end. Many will keep the retainer if a transaction does not occur.

Lower fee structure than our competitors

KLAS provides the most favorable and fair fee structure in the industry, equating to tens of thousands in savings to you. 

We market our practice to qualified buyers only

We vet and then interview qualified buyers to ensure the right match and minimize risk of the deal not going through.  Some competitors just want to close deals fast to get the commission regardless if it is a right fit for both sides.

100% of the transition process is managed by our team

Our team provides experts with financial, operational, legal and real estate expertise who all work together on your behalf to secure a transaction that meets your goals.

Buyer Advocate Program

Research, evaluation and negotiation assistance

WHAT IS A BUYER’S ADVOCATE?

Making the decision to buy your first practice is a major milestone in a person’s business life, and one that no doubt fills the individual with equal parts excitement and pride.   However, without professional assistance, those positive feelings can often quickly turn to anxiety and fear.   After all, do you have an endless amount of time to scour through listings or see a practice through the proper eyes?   Do you have the proper “due diligence” knowledge to view all the numbers correctly?   The entire process can be an exhausting and emotional ride.   Don’t let the experience of buying your first practice leave you with regret: instead, why not rely on the skills and capabilities of an expert who will have your best interests at heart?   

Enter KLAS Solutions buyer’s advocate services.   Many people ask, “What is a buyer’s advocate?” Simply put, a buyer’s advocate or consultant is a practice transition professional hired by a prospective buyer to research, evaluate and negotiate the purchase of a healthcare practice and the purchase of real estate or lease options. Unlike practice brokers who have the interests of the seller at heart, a buyer’s agent looks after you – the buyer. In an industry where the majority of services are designed to help the seller, KLAS Solutions wants you to know that there is someone in your corner and who will work for you.


WHAT DOES A BUYER’S ADVOCATE DO?

KLAS Solutions buyer’s advocate offers these services:

•We will search out practices that meet your criteria and assist in the purchase of that chosen practice and property for sale.
•We will assist in making sure the seller is being transparent with their information and assist you in understanding the “due diligence” of the practice.   

KLAS Solutions will also assist in a BOV for the property or lease review.   This brings us to our next question: “How much does a buyer’s advocate cost?”  As there is much less involved in just bidding for the practice you want, as expected this type of service will carry a lower fee.   On the other hand, for a full service that involves the research, evaluation, and negotiation of a property, you may expect to pay a flat fee.
