As Scott Richards, we fully understand the dental industry, we know how practices are run and the commercial issues they face and can assist with all of your legal needs.

Partner Paul Dyson specialises in dental legal work and acts for many dentists in all parts of the country, ranging from associates and small clinics to large dental practices. He has handled a number of dental sales and purchases spanning both freehold and leasehold properties, and has managed transactions for both private practices and NHS practices under GDS Contracts.

As specialist dental lawyers, we are experienced in dealing with private practices, whether “pay as you go” or under schemes such as Denplan or Practice Plan. We are fully aware of the constraints of the Care Quality Commission and the recent challenges facing dentists regarding decontamination.

We are used to handling different scenarios involving PCTs including the underperformance of UDAs and have dealt with (and successfully pursued) PCTs on incorrectly issued Breach & Remedial Notices.

To ensure transactions are carried out as smoothly as possible, we work closely with accountants, financial brokers & valuers, business sale agents and other professionals dedicated to the dental profession.

As a professional practice ourselves, we understand that you are busy, either in surgery or running your business, so we work around your time pressures and in a way that suits your schedule.

Practice sale & purchase Partnership agreements
Transactions involving the corporates Contracts of employment

Our expertise ranges from associates and small clinics to large dental practices all over the country - see map below.  In May 2019, we attended the Dentistry Show at the NEC – click here for more details.
