In the first two years out of school, Hunter Smith and his partner have acquired 6 dental practices. In this episode of the Shared Practices Podcast, Hunter joins us to talk about that journey. We cover a lot of ground in this episode including the value of getting great advice, what not to do when acquiring, and the path to multiple practice ownership. Hunter also shares some great advice about the one thing that holds people back from being more successful. We really had a great conversation and hope you enjoy this one.

Email Richard@SharedPractices.com or hunterasmithdds@gmail.com with a practice you want evaluated on the show.  (Even if you’ve signed a NDA, hunter and I would be acting as advisors and any personal data would be removed before discussion on the show)

Hunter Smith DDS is a 28-year-old general dentist in Jonesboro, Arkansas. He graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in 2014. Soon after, Dr. Smith bought his first practice. After successful management and system changes increased that already successful first practice by 46% profitability in just 1 year, Dr. Smith grew to enjoy learning about the business of practice ownership and ways to improve clinical, business, staff, and patient relations. Building upon the early success, Dr. Smith joined up with a long-time best friend and fellow dental school graduate, Will Little, to form Southern Dental Group in October of 2015. Since forming SDG, Drs. Little and Smith have acquired an additional 5 locations in the last 18 months.
