New Associateships and Practice Valuation ADA Publications

ADA ValuationADA AssociateshipsI am pleased to announce that the newest revisions of the two American Dental Association publications I have co-authored are now available. The two publications are, The Practical Guide to Associateship: Success Strategies for Dentist – Owners and Prospective Associates and The Practical Guide to Valuing a Practice: A Manual for Dentists. They can be ordered directly from the ADA or from our webstore at www.BerningAffiliates.com. Note Berning & Affiliates also offers a Companion Reader for each title that directs readers considering a practice transition to key sections of the pertinent ADA publication.

In all I have undertaken six revisions of the publications since 1988, with the titles modified by the ADA from time to time. Thousands of doctors have purchased the publications over the years. I have been very fortunate to have outstanding co-authors. My co-author for the first 5 revisions was Larry Domer, MBA, DBA, AVA, now Professor Emeritus at the University of Colorado School of Dentistry, and my current co-author is Paul Baumann, CPA, ABV, CFF, CGMA, ASA, partner at Baumann Moreau.

Associateships: A Guide For Owners and Prospective Associates

The Associateship publication is published by the ADA and is in revision! I am pleased to once again have the opportunity to help develop the updated text for the publication. I have been a co-author on the publication for each of the revisions, 1992, 1996, 2001, 2005 and now in 2013.This is a wonderful resource for both owners and those entering practice as an associate with discussion on important planning topics, compensation worksheets and illustration agreements. It is great to have the opportunity to revisit the material and update it! I’ll keep you posted!
