Working with dental business advisers who understand the pressures you face in the sector is vital in today's rapidly changing professional world.

 How can we help you?

As a principal, associate or limited company, we can help you achieve more from your dental career and business, offering a service that is insightful and personal to you, established from over 30 years' experience in the dental industry.

We are ready to support you in building your future the way that you want. 

The transition of embarking on a career as a self-employed dentist may seem daunting at first but with our support, you will start to experience a natural progression into self-employed status. From calculating tax liabilities and student loan repayments through to record keeping, we can guide you through the next chapter.

The next big decision as an associate is whether you want to buy your own practice or a share in an existing one. We help to ensure that you pay the right price and can structure the purchase in a tax-efficient manner, tailored to your circumstances. Our team can also connect you to vital financial and legal support, built up from years of developing trusted networks with bankers, solicitors and other advisers.

With your dental career taking off, it is important that your time and energy goes into your continued development. As well as making your life easier by preparing your annual accounts and tax returns, our dental expertise will ensure that you claim all relevant business expenses, keeping your tax bills as low as possible.
As a dental practice owner, you may be taking the time to review where you are today and looking at ways, large or small, to optimise the success of your business. Our experts can support you as your business grows using tailored benchmarking and specialist industry insights to help you understand your current strengths and opportunities, through to advising on practice acquisitions.

If you are considering the sale of your practice, either now or in the future, it is important for you to maximise your return and mitigate tax. Our specialist Corporate Finance team go beyond a traditional broker service. We provide end-to-end support, focussing in advance on robust pre-sale preparation and structuring to ensure your practice is presented in the best possible light to potential buyers.

We negotiate the deal, manage the entire process through to completion and support on post-completion matters. Our reputation and expertise as professional dental advisers increases confidence for all parties involved, which helps deliver a deal that meets your expectations.


Whatever your post-sale objectives, Hazlewoods Financial Planning can support you in putting together a tailored plan to help meet them, using the proceeds in the most efficient way.

Making the leap: Associate to practice owner

"As I progressed in my career, I wanted to buy my own practice. With the family history of working with Hazlewoods, I reached out to the team to review my accounts for a prospective practice. They provided guidance on the buying process, the viability of various practices and accurate EBITDA valuations."
