Buying or Selling Your Practice? Get the Legal Lowdown, with Brian Colao

Welcome to "The Future of Dentistry" podcast, where we explore the evolving landscape of dental practices and the trends shaping their future. In today's episode, we have the privilege of hosting a distinguished guest, Brian A. Colao, a seasoned attorney with over 25 years of experience in healthcare regulatory matters, healthcare M&A, and business litigation. Brian is the driving force behind Dykema's DSO group, a recognized leader in the middle market for DSO (Dental Service Organizations) buy-side and sell-side transactions. With a wealth of expertise, Brian has become one of the foremost authorities in North America in the DSO space.

In this episode, Brian shares invaluable insights into the world of dental practices and the importance of seeking legal counsel from experts, whether through his firm, or other reputable sources. He answers crucial questions such as why it's essential to consult a dental-specific lawyer, the current market trends in dental office negotiations, and the benefits of selling in the DSO marketplace compared to traditional dentist-to-dentist transactions. Brian also discusses the pitfalls of relying on informal advice from friends or relatives and emphasizes why selling behind closed doors may not be the best approach in the dental industry.

Join us as we uncover the legal intricacies that every dentist should look out for in today's dental landscape!
