Does a Dentist Need a Financial Planner?
As a dentist, it’s very important to have experts working with you that can provide you with valuable information on the topics you did not study while at dentistry school. Would you like somebody that didn’t go to dental school to perform an extraction on your teeth? Probably not… and that’s why you should not be using google or trusting your own opinion when it comes to financial planning. Financial advisors are important to have because they are well trained and equipped to help you reach your goals and prepare you for the unexpected.
A financial advisor helps you organize your personal and business finances. They help manage your savings and investments to ensure a prosperous future and retirement. They also help you make short-term decisions with your money and consult you on how to reach your financial goals.
When Should I Start Thinking about Implementing a 401k Plan?
As soon as you start your business! As a veteran financial planner, our founder Mr. Robert Edwards always answers this question as follows: “I’m always talking to our clients about saving for retirement even when they first start their practice. And there are some advantages to funding a retirement plan in the early years of your practice because you don’t have any other eligible employees. Remember,0iIt’s a great tax deduction if nothing else, but it’s a good habit to get into, if you don’t put the money away, you will spend it.”
Should I Buy a Practice or Should I Just Start One?
There is, however, less risk in buying an existing practice because you have cash flow already built-in. You’re taking on about the same amount of debt you would be if you’re starting one up, but you have cash flow already. So it’s just a matter of whether you can find a good practice in the right location. Our experts have seen again and again that the most important thing when buying a practice is the location. If you want more information on whether you should buy a dental practice or start your own, we provide an in-depth discussion on our podcast, Beyond Bitewings. We also provide transition services to make sure you make the best decisions for your personal needs.
