Most dentists are only one-time buyers of a dental practice which means that to most, the minutiae of this matter is unchartered territory. Out of the thousands of questions that you'll have during the process of acquiring a new practice, we have compiled a short list of some of the most common questions you might be wondering while getting started. For any other questions you may have, please contact us at info@excelldental.ca.


There are many factors to take under consideration when searching for your perfect practice. Although this may seem like a cop-out answer, it's not. The best place to purchase a practice is the place that works best for you.

With that said, there are external factors that you should research thoroughly before deciding on a location.

  1. Local demographics: age, population size, ethnicity, and cultural presence.
  2. Accessibility: parking availability, access to the clinic from major routes, AODA compliance
  3. Neighbouring businesses

There are advantages to starting a brand new practice and advantages to buying an existing practice. At the end of the day, it comes down to your personal preferences and goals.

A brand new practice means a clean slate to create your own branding, reputation, and patient base. You can also pick and choose the interior design of your office as well as all of the fixtures and hardware.

However, with the purchase of an existing practice, you can inherit an existing presence in a community, a patient base, and an office that already has all of the parts needed to be operational. It's up to you to weigh the pros and cons to decide which solution makes the most sense for you.

Excell Dental possesses the acumen to provide assistance and support at every step of the buying process. Whether you need help with select stages or the whole cycle, we will be there to help.

We ensure that you stay on the right path and avoid expensive mistakes by sharing our knowledge, experience, and the legwork involved in purchasing a practice. Learn more about our process here.

There are two pieces to MobileDDS. The first is a locum placement service by which we match up dentists looking for a locum to take their place and dentists who are looking to be placed in a locum capacity.

The second part is another form of matchmaking service that facilitates mobile cart specialists bringing their services to a general practitioner's practice so as to expand their service offering without having to refer to specialists outside of their practices.

After you decide which services you would like to introduce to your practice, contact us and we will find a specialist who is looking to bring their services into your practice.

If you are looking to be placed in someone else's practice, contact us to discuss the type of placement you are looking for, your preferred region, and your skills. After we have a good understanding of what your need and what you can offer, we begin looking for another dentist who is looking for someone like you for a locum.

If you are a practice owner and are looking for a locum to take your place, we will start by discussing what kind of dentist you need to fill in on a temporary basis. From there, we will find a dentist who is looking for locum placements and make the introduction!
