Excellent dealingsI have had excellent dealings with Frank Taylor and the director Andy Acton. He’s always open to giving advice about how to optimise my practice for future sale. This is where I will be coming when the time comes to sell my practice and in the meantime for my next practice purchase.
Exemplary ServiceHaving just completed the sale of my practice, I thought I should thank everyone at Frank Taylor Associates for the comprehensive help, support and advice I have received. From the discreet and comprehensive valuation right through to completion, the service has been exemplary. I am convinced that without FTA persistently pushing the sale through, it would have foundered on the reefs of COVID. Thanks once again!
First class supportI found Frank Taylor Associates to be very knowledgeable and helpful, throughout the process of selling my dental practice. There was a lot of work to do to get through the journey, but FTA were always quickly available over the phone and gave me first class support. I would recommend their services to anyone else who is selling their practice.
Professional throughoutI was very happy with the service provided by Frank Taylor Associates. They found me a buyer who paid the full asking price. Throughout the process they were professional.
Approachable and a pleasure to work with.FTA and FTA Law are a very experienced group and I was very glad to have their support during my recent practice sale. Although the deal dragged on for a long time they helped and guided me at every step, and frankly I would not have been able to do the job without them. Approachable and a pleasure to work with. My thanks to them all.
Highly RecommendedI sold my practice in 2018 using Frank Taylor & Associates. The first stage is probably the most important - the valuation. Tianna So came to the practice quickly and within a couple of hours had all the information to get the valuation process started. Basically this means getting a good feel of the practical aspects of the business and understanding the culture / ethos / branding then listing/valuation of all the equipment and finally analysing the last 3 years financial information and patient lists. With all this valuable information Tianna put together a proposed valuation which then gets reviewed by a panel at FTA. As a Chartered Accountant and business owner I already had a good idea of the valuation but it gave me comfort to see the FTA valuation and supporting documentation in line with my expectations. The value and offer price has to be fair and realistic and both the seller and buyer need to feel that there is something good about the deal. Tianna was very helpful during these crucial early stages and recommended Tom Coates at FTA Law to act as solicitor for the transaction. It is imperative to use a good dental specialist solicitor and Tom and his team were excellent throughout the due diligence, sale and purchase agreement and completion. I would recommend Frank Taylor & Associates to anyone thinking of selling their practice.
Highly profession & experienced organisationThis highly professional and experienced organisation were instrumental in making the sale of my practice a success. Of all the valuations I had done they were the ones that correctly assessed and subsequently delivered the best return for my business. During each step there was a personal contact guiding me through the often arduous and convoluted process of selling a practice. Their knowledge of the dental sector was invaluable in getting the process to completion. There were frequent updates and support.which continued well past the phase of finding a buyer and negotiating a price. As one of the largest dental estate agents I felt that my practice was marketed as widely as possible and it was a great comfort to know that I was selling through such a well respected agency.
Great ServiceGreat service, they went above and beyond when arranging viewings - a pleasure to do business with!
Highly RecommendVery prompt service, helpful and supportive. Would highly recommend using FTA.
Thank you for all the reassuranceMany thanks to all at Frank Taylor & Associates for holding my hand, from my first initial phone call and helping me so carefully through the process. Thank you to you for all your phone calls and reassurance through lockdown.
Our experience has been positive!Our experience of Frank Taylor and associates has been a positive one. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company's services to others.
Very impressed!I have been very impressed with Frank Taylor & Associates both in their valuation of the practice and their help with the CQC. I strongly urge anyone who is thinking of selling to get in touch with Frank Taylor & Associates for advice!
Thank youI just wanted to write a personal note of gratitude to you [Lesley] for initiating the sale of my dental practice with your expertise and experience. Without your input I would not have achieved my goal. Thank you, AB
Forever Grateful!I met Lesley in 2017 when I was seriously considering selling my dental practice in Fulham. After 11 years without the expected growth I had hoped, I felt there was no other option but to cut my losses, pay off my debts and return to the world of being an associate. This was not a prospect I was looking forward to. After years of being misled by so called “ business consultants “ I felt the problem with the lack of financial success was all down to me. Lesley, without either of us realising it at the time, quite literally saved Karma Dental Care! Her valuation of my practice was far beyond my wildest expectations. I was genuinely shocked and humbled by the goodwill Lesley had calculated I had generated. It was a validation of all my and my teams hard work over the years. It gave me the determination not to give up, to remove all negative persons around me , and have belief in myself. To date we have had the best turnover in 13 years and 104 five star reviews on google. We are growing from strength to strength. Without someone like Lesley who could see the potential of my business and to give me the hope that I sorely needed, Karma Dental Care would not be around. I will forever be grateful to Lesley.
Five star review!We sold our practice in 2018 and from the first contact with them through to the valuation which was very professionally handled by Tianna and ultimately the completion of our sale, I found them to be very helpful, supportive and professional.
A very professional performanceThanks for all your help, advice and support and regular telephone calls over the past year during the sometimes challenging process of completing the sale of the practice. Please also thank everybody involved at Frank Taylor & Associates as right from the word go it was a very professional performance.

FTA does it all!Over the last thirty years I have been an FTA customer and have had the opportunity to see, and experience, how this company works and has evolved. The company began life with Frank Taylor, as a small business offering a highly efficient personal service to the dental profession. Over the years it has grown substantially, offering a multitude of diverse, but interrelated services. It has become a leader in the profession, and a benchmark for other companies, yet it has retained the main features so essential to a successful and growing business. The staff are well trained, friendly and extremely helpful. As a lot of my experience in dealing with FTA has been telephone based it has been very positive. Calls are usually answered and if not, messages are responded to quickly. Also, emails are responded to, and acknowledged promptly and efficiently. As a customer, I always felt FTA were doing their best on my behalf and genuinely putting my interests first. Based on my personal experience and understanding of the challenges of the dental business I can recommend FTA as a company that has a good understanding of the dental business world.

A big thank you to the whole teamA big thank you to the whole team at FTA who persevered in seeing this through! In particular Graham who handled difficult issues extremely well and saw the final deal through. Thank you also to Henry and all the lovely girls who have been so polite and charming at all times on the phone, and there were a lot of those calls!!!!
Thank youI would like to thank you for all your hard work and effort in dealing with the sale of my dental practice in North London.
In the hands of expertsI would like to thank everyone involved at Frank Taylor & Associates for their help with completing on our practice sale. It was a complicated sale and we overcame some unexpected difficulties associated with the specialist nature of our practice, in particular with the sedation and MOS PDS contracts. The expert advice and support that was also given to our buyer to obtain financial assistance when the deal looked like it would collapse due to difficulties with their bank made all the difference. I know with absolute certainty that the sale would not have been successful without your expert help, guidance and advice. This was so much more than we expected from you when we agreed to sell our practice with Frank Taylor & Associates. At all times we felt that we were in the hands of experts who took a personal interest in our practice and were real friends. With grateful thanks and very best wishes,
Dr J Zane & Dr A Theron
10 out of 10!I would like thank you and all the helpful staff at Frank Taylor & Associates. I would give you 10 out of 10 for your service and will be highly recommending you to all my friends.
We definitely chose the right teamA huge thank you to all the friendly, professional team at Frank Taylor & Associates! We had no idea how much would be involved in selling a practice – but we definitely chose the right team to find our wonderful buyers and can sail off into retirement with peace of mind. Any problems were calmly sorted out along the way –Lis Hughes was always there to liaise when required. And lastly, the delicious chocolate brownies were a lovely surprise at completion!
A professional team of peopleThank you Frank Taylor and Associates for supporting me from start to finish with the sale of my practice. You helped me realise that I didn't need to sell both my practices and have guided me in effective ways to stabilise my finances and deal with the sale of one practice. I like that you offer a 360 degree surface from sales to legal to financial support. Thank you again to your professional team of people.
We knew it was the right choiceFrom the moment we picked up the phone to the Frank Taylor & Associates team, we knew it was the right choice and they were the right team to work with us on the sale of our dental practice. They produced an impressive sales brochure to market our practice and thanks to the different FTA membership levels the practice was marketed to, we knew that all the viewings arranged were from only serious buyers. The FTA team were excellent in organising all aspects. We were more than happy to leave it in their capable hands. The process was very efficient – practice viewings were organised with care and attention, with our privacy and free time considered at all time. The support we were given was outstanding and just what we needed during such a stressful time. And once we’d found our buyer, the good service from Frank Taylor & Associates didn’t end there. We always felt that someone was “fighting our corner” and the sales process was driven forward persistently. From viewings to completion, it was all very organised, efficient and professional. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Frank Taylor & Associates to others.

We can’t recommend them highly enough"The FTA system of assessment, evaluation and support through the entire sales process was amazing. They supported us both emotionally and professionally throughout the transaction ups and downs, and guided us expertly as we dealt with the CQC application and transfer of our NHS contract to the purchaser. It was a huge relief when the day of completion finally arrived and we’d come out the other side thanks to the team at Frank Taylor & Associates. We’re extremely happy with the service and help that everyone gave us – they were all brilliant and we can’t recommend them highly enough.”
Bill & Debbie Meeson
It’s a team effort – even to the very end!Wow! – What a process! Right from the initial telephone discussions, having come well recommended,- through the valuation and then the negotiations, your service has been impeccable. Selling a practice is not just “selling a practice”! It is the coming together of a wealth of knowledge and expertise providing information, guidance and recommendations for anything from the surveys to the all vital Solicitor! The team have dealt with every issue professionally and confidently and I could not have asked for more! Very many thanks to both of you and the whole team for making the process as smooth as possible!
Fantastic sale price achievedWe were overwhelmed by the interest that Frank Taylor Associates created in our practice. And what’s more, they achieved a sale price for our practice that was well beyond my expectations.
Dr Paula Brennan, Principal Westbury Dental Care
A very big thank youI have recently had the pleasure of dealing with the team at Frank Taylor & Associates for the sale of my dental practice and from the outset, I found myself being guided through the process with the best professional care that I could have wished for. During the sale the team, in particular Lis Hughes, was always most helpful, caring and genuinely concerned. They were also competent, efficient and quick to respond to my needs and available to help, reassure and assist at a moment’s notice. A very big thank you for all your help.
It needn’t be stressfulAs an owner of a number of practices I know just how stressful buying practice can be. I have always found the team at Frank Taylor & Associates, professional, extremely knowledgeable, proactive, efficient, really helpful and always friendly!
Exceeded ExpectationsFTA have exceeded my expectations at every stage of the process of selling my practice. As well as achieving 40 viewings and 15 sealed bids at the beginning of the journey, FTA maintained contact throughout the remaining stages of the process. Unfailingly professional and helpful, the team work seamlessly to keep momentum and communication going between all the parties involved.
Valuable inputJust to say a very big thanks to the Frank Taylor & Associates team for all your help and assistance during the sale of my dental practice. I doubt we would have made it to the end of the sale without your input. Thank you.
Thank youThank you for all your help with the sale of my practice. I do keep recommending you to my friends who are thinking of selling up. I will definitely keep in touch.
Invaluable supportI am not sure we would have got to the finishing line without you. Your interventions were invaluable and we are very grateful for all the personal support that we got.
Exceeding all expectationsFrom the very first time that I met Andy in 2006, I felt very comfortable with his whole ethos of dealing with a prospective client. There was no “hard sell” and although it took me 7 years to finally decide to sell the practice, I was very reassured by Andy’s detailed knowledge of the market and also guiding me through different possible scenarios of whom and how to sell the practice. There was never any pressure and the final decision was always mine based on sound information and guidance. I was astounded by the level of interest that your team managed to generate, 60+ confirmed viewings within 48 hours! Again, your team were excellent in helping to organise this. We certainly achieved way above my expectations in the final sale price, which Andy had quietly and in an understated way predicted without raising ones hopes! Please thank everyone who was involved in the whole process, Anne, Carly, Janet, and others whom I may have missed. They were all so pleasant and helpful and cheery with all their communications with me, especially the daily morning phone calls that came my way from an undisclosed number to say “yes we’ve had another offer!”
Invaluable all round!I would thoroughly recommend Frank Taylor & Associates who I used recently as the broker for selling my mixed leasehold practice. The knowledge, experience and help given by the team proved invaluable. Their ability to liaise with all parties ie myself, the buyers, both sets of solicitors and the buyer’s finance company ensured that the sale reached completion despite some unexpectedly complicated issues. I was guided through each stage and all my contacts at Frank Taylor & Associates were excellent.
Belinda Lund, Rye Dental Surgery
A good decision!I am glad I trusted the marketing and sale of my practice with Frank Taylor & Associates and I am sure in time we will find the right person to take over from me.
A great teamThe team at Frank Taylor & Associates has been excellent. Very efficient and helpful every time I have contacted the office. Well done ! Thanks
