Dentists who buy practices from other dentists are often surprised about the sheer volume of non-clinical tasks involved in transitioning to their new practice. What they expect to be a simple purchase transaction often ends up being an overwhelming process that sometimes leads to them either rethinking their purchase or abandoning it altogether. Our job is to assist in making this process as seamless as possible.

As an experienced consultant for dentists, JoAnne’s passion is helping to create realistic expectations and meaningful business solutions for thriving practices. Her client testimonials speak for themselves about the trust and guidance she offers them in their business, giving you the confidence in your business decision. We have helped advise dentists all throughout the United States purchase the practice of their dreams.

Dentists are some of the hardest working professionals. Handling all the financials and practice management part of the business is the not-so-glamourous part of running a practice. We’ve been down this path numerous times with ambitious dentists just like you! Do yourself a favor and call us today to help you begin the journey. We offer a complimentary no-obligation initial consultation to make it even easier!

We have referred a number of clients to JoAnne Tanner for assistance with “due diligence” when contemplating the purchase of a Dental Practice and have been very satisfied with her services. She also has invaluable knowledge with respect to counseling new owners of dental practices with respect to how to preserve goodwill and move the practice in a positive direction. Ms. Tanner is also very knowledgeable and skilled in handling staff, especially when the practice needs some assistance to get everyone on the same page and to pursue the same objectives.” Ron Goldman, Attorney at Law, Goldman Law

From the beginning of my dental practice acquisition to my 3rd year into my practice now, Joanne from Tanner Management has been with me through every step of the way. Initially when I had reached out to her, she met me at the practice I was interested in purchasing, where she helped me with the process of what to look for and if this practice was the right fit for me. I was clueless. I didn’t know anything about dental insurance, staff management, collections from patients or how to even approach them. I’ve only done dentistry since graduating 14 years ago.  She plugged me in with the right people to help me make this strong decision. Now, I appreciate the help of her coaching skills for both my team and I, for helping us understand the business by reviewing our monthly numbers with us, training us on how to increase production and keeping us on track to help us in the areas we need to work on including hiring staff, marketing. Most of all, Joanne believes in me, she believes that I will thrive, and cares about the well-being of this practice and me.”  Anna Yi, DDS

JoAnne’s knowledge and experience were essential in guiding me through buying a dental practice.  I would highly recommend her to help anyone looking to perform due diligence on a possible practice purchase.”
