Choosing to become a dentist was the best choice you’ve ever made. Over the course of your career, you’ve gotten to meet and help thousands of people when it came to their health and confidence, and you still feel fulfilled every time a patient sees their new smile in the mirror for the first time. But now, you’re starting to look ahead to the next phase of your life. You want to spend more time at home with your family, so that means you’re ready to sell your practice.
