For Purposes of this Program: The term Registered Seller refers to any practicing orthodontist who has registered with our program to offer an Associate Position within, Partial Sale of or Complete Sale of his/her orthodontic practice. The term Registered Buyer refers to any orthodontist or orthodontic resident who has registered with our program to find an Associate Position within, Partial Sale of or Complete Sale of an existing orthodontic practice.
When a practicing orthodontist decides to register with our Free Practice Matching Assistance Program and offer a Practice Opportunity, we work closely with that Registered Seller to create two (2) e-mails for the purpose of marketing the opportunity to our Registered Buyers.
The first e-mail is a basic description of the opportunity and is designed to provide minimal information to Registered Buyers. That basic description will be e-mailed to all Registered Buyers monthly as part of the General Notice of Practice Opportunities e-mail which contains brief descriptions of all of the Practice Opportunities we know of at that time. From those basic descriptions, each Registered Buyer is to decide which opportunities he/she is interested in.
If a Registered Buyer is interested in a particular opportunity, he/she will request more information regarding that opportunity by clicking on a specific link within the General Notice of Practice Opportunities e-mail. That request for more information notifies us to send the Practice Opportunity Details e-mail for that particular Practice Opportunity. The Practice Opportunity Details e-mail is the second e-mail created and is the e-mail that contains the specific details for a particular Practice Opportunity.
Note: Practice Opportunity Details e-mails are only sent to Registered Buyers who specifically request more information regarding a particular Practice Opportunity. Those specific requests are made by Registered Buyers through links provided within the General Notice of Practice Opportunities e-mail sent monthly.
If a Registered Seller has chosen to list ANONYMOUSLY, the Registered Seller’s name, contact information and practice location will not be displayed in the Practice Opportunity Details e-mail. Instead, Registered Buyers will be required to request that Ziegler Practice Transitions, Ltd. contact the Registered Seller on behalf of the Registered Buyer (to do so, there will be a link provided within the Practice Opportunity Details e-mail). It will then be up to the Registered Seller to decide whether or not to contact the Registered Buyer and begin discussions regarding the Practice Opportunity.
If a Registered Seller has chosen to list PUBLICLY, the Registered Seller’s name, contact information and practice location will be displayed within the Practice Opportunity Details e-mail. In such a case, Registered Buyers will contact the Registered Seller directly to pursue discussions regarding the Practice Opportunity.
Whether a Registered Seller has elected to list ANONYMOUSLY or PUBLICLY, it is always the responsibility of the Registered Seller to engage the Registered Buyer(s) in discussions and determine with whom to move forward.
Note: Upon registration, Registered Sellers will also receive a current list of the Registered Buyers seeking Practice Opportunities within that Registered Seller’s state. The Registered Seller may contact anyone on that list at any time to begin discussing the Practice Opportunity.
