Ziegler Practice Transitions, Ltd

Ziegler Practice Transitions, Ltd. is a dental practice transition consulting firm that specializes in Orthodontic Practice Transitions. We offer custom solutions to aid both the Buyer and Seller throughout every step of the practice transition process. From Practice Appraisal (including tax allocation), through the negotiation process to Final Execution Documents, our firm focuses on the overall transition to offer all parties a fair transition plan.

We perform Formal Practice Appraisals of professional practices to determine the Fair Market Value and Tax Allocation of the Purchase Price. Our unique role as a mediator / consultant / educator enables us to create a detailed transition plan that is fair to both parties and that is supported by the cash flow of the practice.

We work with attorneys to negotiate and draft all of the necessary documents for Associateships, Partnerships and the various types of Practice Acquisitions in all fifty (50) states. Our unique perspective and overall approach to practice transitions are founded upon the principals of fairness and cooperation. Quality, practicality and affordability are our guidelines. We can also assist in obtaining Practice Acquisition Financing and offer a Practice Matching Program to assist a Buyer and Seller in finding one another.

Thomas F.

We now continue that tradition of educating the orthodontic community through a series of webinars available to orthodontic residents, recent graduates and practicing orthodontists. We also attend the AAO Annual Session and GORP meetings every year as exhibitors.
