New Podcast! The Evolution of Deal Structures in the DSO Space

by Drew Phillips, CPA | August 11, 2023

We’ve seen a consistent trend toward consolidation in the dental space for the last 15 years. But coming out of the pandemic, the DSO marketplace is changing.

And if you’re thinking about selling your practice to a Dental Service Organization, it’s useful to understand the different deal structures available to you.

So, how are DSO deal structures evolving in a post-COVID world? And how can a dental lawyer help choose the option that’s right for you?

Dean Gould serves as Senior Attorney at Dykema, where he specializes in dental law and the DSO transaction space.

On this episode of the podcast, Dean joins host Drew Phillips to explain why DSOs are moving toward joint venture deals and how the site-level equity structure prioritizes income replacement and encourages organic growth.

Dean discusses the benefit of building a team of legal and financial advisors before you sell to private equity and describes how a dental lawyer can help structure a win-win scenario for you and the DSO at the LOI stage, giving you clarity and confidence prior to the resource-heavy due diligence process.

Listen in for Dean’s predictions around the success of doctor-centric DSOs and learn how to choose a deal structure that fits your risk tolerance and benefits you and your dental practice for the long term. Tune into the episode here!
