What was the best & the hardest part about selling your practice?

Dr. William Vargo was a successful dentist for 35 years. He envisioned himself practicing till he was 68 or 70. But when he was only 65, his health couldn’t tolerate it and his wife’s health started to go downhill. He made the difficult decision to sell his practice earlier than he thought and during the COVID pandemic. 

Selling your practice can be loaded with emotion. In a moment, everything you worked for is turned over to someone else. What will they decide to do with it?

Plus, for so long you’ve gotten a sense of purpose and identity from being a dentist. Now what? What will you do after you’re a “non-dentist”? What will you think about instead?

Dr. William Vargo joins us on this episode to share his honest insights as one who has gone through the transition of selling a practice and stepped into retirement.

  • What was the most challenging aspect of selling your practice?
  • What was the best part about selling your practice?
  • What advice do you have for colleagues who might be considering a transition?
