Dental Practice Values Around the Country

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Oftentimes, potential purchasers refer to articles that they have read, stating that most dental practices that are for sale should not be worth more than 60-65% of last year’s gross revenue. This is an incorrect assumption, in general, as dental practice values can vary anywhere between 40% and 100% of the last year’s gross receipts based on the location of the practice. There are many other factors that can impact a dental practice’s value. In addition to location, other key factors that also influence practice values also include:

  • Area Demographics
  • Practice Facility
  • Patient Base
  • Economic Variables
  • Practice Overhead


In the end, the practice’s value is not all about what has been reported on tax returns, but those key factors I have just presented,  especially your practice’s location,  will  have a major influence on what the dental practice is truly worth.
