Chris Bentson and Doug Copple, CVA, of Bentson Clark & Copple, will be among the featured speakers at the upcoming Practice Transition Seminar being held during the American Association of Orthodontists’ (AAO) 2014 Annual Session in New Orleans.

Chris Bentson will focus on “Metrics that Matter: Valuation and Transition Fundamentals for Buyers and Sellers.” Doug Copple will discuss in detail “Cash Flow Pro Formas and Terms for Buy-Outs and Partnerships.”

The Practice Transition Seminar is a tool to aid AAO members during the challenging time of a career transition. The seminar brings together a four person panel of transition experts to share insights for orthodontists that are preparing for a future transition. The seminar is hosted by the Council on Orthodontic Practice (COOP) in hopes to educate doctors on how to achieve an equitable outcome in a practice transition.

This year’s seminar will take place at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel, Jefferson Ballroom, from 7:30 AM – 4:30 PM on April 25, 2014. The event will be followed by a networking reception from 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM. Contact the AAO for more information, to register for the event, or to order a copy of the lecture and supplemental materials.
