“I purchased my practice from Ray Irving in 1984. Although he represented the seller, Ray did such a stellar job that I stated he would represent me when I was ready to retire. 35-years later, I was ready. My practice required special attention. It was out-of-network generating $2.2 Million and growing. It required the right successor. Ray came through with the buyer and the price I wanted, and the deal was closed with no problems or delays. Additionally, Ray introduced a tax application that my Dental CPA scrubbed thoroughly. Ray saved me $200,000 in taxes. Does Ray know this business? He sure does!”
