How Our Partnership Works

How Our Partnership Works

If You Already Own A Practice

Introduction
Dentists who own their own practice eventually want to transition into working less clinically and/or delegating business responsibilities. VC Dental partners gives owners a stark alternative to “selling” to a private equity backed DSO or finding “that one” dentist to sell to. We are the dental industry’s anti-DSO answer.

VC Dental Partners is a 100% dentist-owned and lead group of dentists, uniquely linked via a partnership model. This approach allows our partnered dentists and offices the benefits of economies of scale: lower costs and increased production, autonomy, and much higher equity valuations than could ever be achieved otherwise. Moreover, we are experts at transition and brand growth.

Our partnered offices offload back-office, management, and administration burdens that tend to exhaust owner doctors. These services are managed by the country’s best firms who specialize in each area.

This is the typical scenario for a doctor who wants to continue practicing and who wants to help us grow:

  • We will buy 50% of your practice at fair-market value. We will become 50:50 partners of your practice and your practice will become part of our dentist owned group.
  • As part of our group, doctors will be paid 30-33% of collections. A 50:50 partner will also take home 50% of the practice’s profits.
  • Partner doctors will earn pro-rata profits interest in our group, equal to 10% of its value.
    • 100% of our partners equity value will be equal to the group’s equity value.
  • A 6% management fee will cover the cost of offloading administrative burdens.
