Buying a Practice

Congratulations! You are taking your first step toward practice ownership! One of the best things about being a dentist is that you also have the opportunity to be your own boss. Whether you are buying your first practice or your tenth practice, we are excited to help you through this wonderful time in your career.

At BridgeWay, we work hard to make sure that each transition we complete is a successful one for both parties. Most practice brokers only work on behalf of the seller. At BridgeWay, all of our buyers are also our clients and are therefore privy to any and all information that we have about the practices we are selling. We strive to make sure that the practice is a good fit for you and will help you reach your practice ownership goals. We operate with complete transparency to allow you to make the best decision possible, whether that takes two months or two years. It’s your timeline, not ours.

  • Hands-On Guidance

    We work very hard to be present every step of the way. From meeting with all of our buyers in person, to being there when they meet a seller, we are focused on giving you the best experience possible. We are available after hours and on weekends because we know that you are most likely seeing patients during the day. Our goal is to provide the best customer service in the industry.

  • Financing

    Most dentists will need to obtain financing in order to purchase a practice. We have strong relationships with all the major and most of the local dental lenders. We can help you find the right loan to fit your practice ownership needs.

  • Contracts

    We provide contracts to be used in the sale of the practice. We encourage our clients to use dental specific attorneys to help them review the contract so that they understand exactly what you are agreeing to. Our contracts start off fair and balanced, so neither party has to be on the defensive during this stage of the process.


I would highly recommend Celeste and BridgeWay Practice Transitions. I’ve now transitioned 5 offices in my last several years with different brokerage firms and this has been one of the easiest transitions. Celeste and BridgeWay are truly professional, non-biased, will not try to raise the selling price by doing open houses or setting up bidding wars as other brokerage firms have in the past. They will be open and honest to the buyer and seller to ensure that it’s a great fit for both parties. I hope to help transition several other offices through them and can’t wait for our next project.

I would like to thank Kelly Lewis and BridgeWay for all of the work they did in the transaction. It has been a fun time to work with Kelly. She is always positive and cheerful. Early morning texting, late night phone calls and emails.  She is always available for you with her professional knowledge. If ever again we were in need for a dental broker in this area or know of someone that is looking for a good one, I would definitely suggest Kelly Lewis!

Working with Kelly at BridgeWay Transitions was awesome!  She was very responsive via phone calls, texts, and emails, and I sincerely appreciated her honest, positive attitude throughout the whole transition.  She’s knowledgeable and extremely down-to-earth.  I would work with her again in a heartbeat.

I happened to stumble upon BridgeWay Transitions, and I am so thankful that I did. Tiffany Stewart is an absolute gem! The entire process of purchasing a practice is very daunting, and she walked me through every step. She put me in touch with the right people to make it all happen; i.e., bank, lawyer, accountant. But what I appreciate the most is her sincerity and thoughtfulness. You can tell that Tiffany is dedicated to what she does and really wants the best for everyone. Tiffany would call and check on me and see if there was anything I needed help with. She really took my thoughts and considerations into account, as well as the sellers. And this was a very difficult task, but Tiffany was available by phone or email 24/7 and would present creative solutions that are mutually beneficial to both parties and goes above and beyond to ensure the transaction proceeds successfully for all involved. This has led to happy, seamless transition. I would wholeheartedly recommend Tiffany and her team to my friends and colleagues. She is above the rest in the market with her expertise, unparalleled knowledge and compassion.

I first came across BridgeWay Practice Transitions and immediately was surprised by the quality of the practices in their listings. Many of them were fee for service practices with healthy profit margins. Their referrals for other professionals to involve in the transaction were fabulous, and overall the entire team communicated and worked together well. I am now on the other side of the deal, and although being a new practice owner has its own stresses, I feel blessed to have found the arrangement I did.

Regardless of the reason for buying or selling a dental practice, the decision and process are deeply personal. There are many complexities of the deal including the business basics, timing, and the blending of personalities and temperaments. I found Tiffany to possess the experience and skills to get to the finish line. What I found unique in her though, was her innate sensitivity and sincerity. Tiffany genuinely cares about her clients. She conducts herself with integrity, as one who treasures their reputation. When I met Tiffany a couple years ago at a dental meeting, I told her a little about myself and what I was looking for. Apparently, she was listening, because when the perfect practice fit became available she found me and worked with the seller and myself to enable us to make a mutually rewarding transition happen.

I’ve worked with multiple dental transition groups in my career and Kelly and her team with BridgeWay Transitions was one of the best. She made the transition as seamless as possible. I’d highly recommend BridgeWay and I plan on working with them again in the future.

When I first met with BridgeWay and described what I was looking for, they went above and beyond in their search until one that fit my criteria came across. Every step of the way, their valuable experience and negotiating skills ensured that I would be acquiring the right practice. They are professional, proactive, and do not give up. They were very easy to talk to, to work with, and made the whole process significantly easier and comfortable for me. When I successfully purchased the new practice, I enjoyed sharing that moment with them, as I saw them as a partner throughout the whole process.
