FAQ

Buying a practice

What are the first steps for a buyer?

The first step is to have a complimentary consultation with our owner, Tabitha Jaquay, to talk about what exactly you are looking for as well as sign a non-disclosure agreement. The non-disclosure agreement does NOT mean you are only able to work with Jaquay Enterprise. What it does mean is that if you purchase a practice through Jaquay Enterprise, we have some basic expectations for you as the client. These expectations mainly revolve around issues of confidentiality.

What should I be aware of as a buyer?

It is important to take things slow. Make sure to do your homework and do your due diligence throughout the process. Remember, the practice you will purchase represents someone else’s years and years of hard work. Also, think about the team that is currently working at the existing practice. This transition not only affects you, but them.

Selling a practice

When should I begin to prepare to sell my practice?

Even if you are not yet ready to sell, now is the time to gain information about what that process looks like. If nothing else, you are being educated about the process of selling your practice in the future and you are able to find out the current value of your practice. Gaining information can also help you to clarify what your timeline will look like when it is time to sell.

Does Jaquay Enterprise assist with insurance credentialing?

Yes! Because transitioning a practice can be stressful, the last thing that doctors are thinking about during a transition is insurance credentialing, or what insurance contracts they are already on, which ones are going to follow them to their new locations, and how that is going to affect their new practice. By taking a look at the demographics of a doctor’s new practice, Jaquay Enterprise is able to point out which contracts they are already on and which contracts they may need when moving to a new location.

Merging dental practices

How does Jaquay Enterprise help prepare clients for a transition?

We promise to be honest with you prior to your transition. Our job is to tell you the truth, or as we say “the good, the bad, and the ugly.” Jay Enterprises exists to take your practice to the next level.

How does Jaquay Enterprise support buyers and sellers during a merge?

Jaquay Enterprise will remain a consultant for both companies three months following the merge. We look at the existing systems and cultures each practice has in place and figure out the best ways to combine the two. Even if teams do not quite “mesh” at first, we support everyone throughout the process of blending the groups together. Depending on the styles of the existing teams, we may even do a communication and personality style assessment to further assist everyone during the merge.
