Earlier this year, Dr. Fallah was thinking about selling his office and freeing up more of his time to acquire new offices. That is until he sat down with Tralongo and realized he could keep his existing office and still grow his business.
- How did you discover Tralongo?
I was considering transitioning away from my existing practice and acquiring a new dental office. So, I initially approached Tralongo’s sister-brand Transition Whale about their services. They actually referred me to Tralongo and I started doing my research and realized that moving forward with Tralongo made all the sense in the world. I could keep my current office and started working with Tralongo and they’ve presented me with several great acquisition opportunities.
- What were some of your initial expectations when joining the Tralongo family?
I was looking forward to seeing how they would relieve some of the back office pressure felt by myself and my team. The demands of seeing patients and then dealing with the administrative/office management tasks left little time to focus on expanding my practice. The support that they have been able to come in and provide almost immediately has taken a load off of my shoulders. I know that when I do acquire my first practice, the integration of a new practice into our existing one will be more streamlined than it would have been doing it myself.
- What is the advice you would give to other dentists considering Tralongo?
Give them a chance to present what they offer. For myself, I was initially planning to go an entirely different route until I sat down with Tralongo and listened to what they could do for my practice. It was immediately an attractive offer and one I knew that I couldn’t turn down if I was truly serious about growing my business. I appreciate that they made the decision easy for me and have followed through on the promises that they made.
- What’s next for you?
Working with the Tralongo team, we are very close to acquiring my first practice. They’ve been great in presenting me with opportunities throughout my year with them, and the deals just happened to fall through for one reason or another and at no fault of Tralongo – this is the reality of the world we live in. I have great faith in their ability and the right acquisition is going to present itself very soon.
