The number of active dentists is projected to continue declining through 2020. Currently, approximately 4,000 new dentists graduate each year while close to 6,000 retire. In the United States, there are, on average, about 65 dentists per 100,000 population, a lower ratio in many locations than for other health providers such as primary care physicians.

To mitigate the risks of a declining pool of potential buyers and to maximize the opportunities that exist in the marketplace, it is crucial to have a transition plan.
