"I've been on both ends of buying/selling a practice several times and have used the services of 4 different people. Randon Jensen was easily the most professional, knowledgeable and helpful of all. He was responsive to all of my needs and left no stones unturned. He also stayed in touch to follow up during and after the transition. I'm certain I would not have done as well if anyone else had handled my transaction. I would recommend Randon without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a practice." - Bill Osofsky, DDS
"Randon and Larry, I wish to thank you both for the tremendous help you provided in the sale and transition of my dental practice. You have both done an excellent job in helping me navigate through the myriad of details and challenges that come with selling a dental practice. You are highly professional and provided excellent insight and guidance.I would not have survived it without your wonderful and patient tutelage." - Roger E. Grua, DDS
"CTC Associates, and Marie Chatterley, are absolute experts with Dental transitions. I am always impressed with customer service, responsiveness, and attention to detail. Marie delivers all this and more. Her professionalism and ability to handle all parties involved with the right temperment makes the transition process as drama-free as can be. I couldn't give a higher recommendation than this one." - Peter Qui
"If you are considering a sale of your practice, or just bringing on an associate, you need expertise to guide you through the process. Call Larry or Randon with CTC Associates. I am glad I did. I could not have handled my practice sale without them." - Eric Mack, DDS
“Mrs. Chatterley brokered the sale of my general dentistry practice. From my perspective as a detail-oriented dentist, the transition was handled beautifully. Mrs. Chatterley’s personal time and attention to both my staff and myself, coupled with the detailed printed material she provided, was extremely helpful. Because the whole transaction was taken care of so competently and professionally, I have already highly recommended Marie Chatterley and CTC Associates to other dentists and will continue to do so whenever the opportunity arises.”
- Vincent F. Cleeves Jr. DDS

To Buy a Practice or Start One From Scratch?
Owning your own business may seem intimidating for many of you, but for the majority of dentists, this is a reality. For many Americans it is part of living the American Dream, and for most dentists it becomes a primary goal of their career. Some will choose to jump right into practice ownership, while others prefer to continue their education or work as an associate dentist prior to assuming the risk and responsibility of owning their own practice.
Buyer’s Guide – Do It Right the First Time
