Attend a complimentary CE webinar for dentists about:


Protect the Value of Your Practice
Through the Dental Office Lease

Thurs. July 8, 2021 · 6:00 – 7:00 PM (PST)


One of the most significant trends in commercial real estate during this pandemic has been landlords pushing for higher rents and increasingly unfavourable lease terms for dentists; reducing practice profitability, and impacting the value of your practice. The COVID pandemic, and its devastating impact on commercial landlords, has provided a significant time-sensitive opportunity to leverage the high vacancy rates and economic volatility to successfully negotiate new tenant-friendly terms. A well-structured lease is essential at the time of sale and maximizing practice value.

Hear industry experts Patti-Anne Jones and Sevan Kadian, Practice Transition Specialists at Tier Three Brokerage, and Lee Tessler, Senior Consultant – Healthcare Leasing at Cirrus Consulting Group, discuss the critical importance of your lease to your practice economics.

In this Western Canada specific webinar, we’ll discuss:

  • National market update and the impact of COVID on practice revenues, earnings and selling prices.

  • Basic dental practice economics and how you compare – the real cost of lease uncertainty.

  • How the lease agreement can make or break the sale of your practice.

  • How to avoid $100,000 mistakes through the assignment clause of your lease.

  • Mitigate risk and exposure post-sale to critical business impacting clauses within the lease to protect your estate and family.
