ADS Georgia is known by its impeccable reputation as being fair, honest and effective in helping dentists plan and implement their transition strategies.


What We Do

ADS is literally composed of the best professionals in the transition field. We do not offer franchises to just anyone who wants to sell dental practices. All prospective members must pass review by our nomination committee and meet quality and experience requirements. To be admitted to ADS, /they must be voted upon by the entire ADS /membership. ADS /members are subject to internal standards and peer review. We are serious about integrity, competence and quality.

Recently, our membership had a strategic planning session that indicated that our members would benefit from being part of the ADS /brand, rather than being known as their separate individual company, thus the movement to be known collectively and individually as ADS. /Now, when you see the ADS /advertisements in Dental Economics, our monthly Dental Economics transition column, our many pages of classified advertising in Dental Economics, our national website, www.ADSTransitions.com, and other ADS /branding venues, you can associate us and our colleagues as part of the ADS /national organization which provides the highest quality transition services in the country.

Testimonial from a Satistfied Dentist

"All I had to do was make it known I was looking to purchase a practice. This practice matched my needs exactly - left handed operatories, rural setting, at a price in my range. Also, it was an existing practice that allowed me to go in the first week and be busy!"

ADS South

Testimonial from a Satistfied Dentist

"When I first decided to sell my dental practice, I was frightened, getting into dentistry is one thing, getting out is another thing entirely. ADS South made me feel at ease and gave me confidence. The appraisal and sale was handled with prompt and effective actions, with satisfaction to both the buyer and the seller."
