As retirement beckons, you may start to think about the best ways to strategically retire. Whether you are selling a practice or not, it’s common to have questions about the retirement process for dental professionals:
Have you saved enough to live comfortably?
What does your retirement plan look like? Has it been updated?
What would your retirement life look like if you were to retire today? Could you retire today?
If applicable, is your dental practice set up for success after you leave?
At Treloar & Heisel, we have been helping dentists through important life transitions since 1959. That’s why we’re able to help dentists who want to transition to a satisfying retirement without any of the worries.
Be Prepared for Your Retirement Transition
Leaving behind a successful dental career or thriving practice requires that you set up a post-professional success plan. You need to know if your money will last, if your savings account will have enough to support your retirement life as well as unexpected expenses, and what steps to take to ensure top dollar if you’re selling your dental practice.
It’s important to start planning for retirement as soon as possible.
Choosing a team of advisors that has experience with supporting business succession planning, estate planning, buy/sell agreements, and wealth management can facilitate your retirement planning process.
Treloar & Heisel assists dental professionals like you by streamlining your post-retirement plan under our comprehensive umbrella of retirement management services, allowing you to focus on your transition while we handle the financial details.
Know Your Needs Before You Retire
Having an idea of what you need — and don’t need — for a successful retirement is vital to a smooth transition. Realistically, every dental professional’s retirement transition is unique.
For example, selling your practice or transitioning it to a successor requires thoughtful planning well in advance of the event. Maybe you want advice on how to prepare a junior partner and your team for the transition, or you’re not sure how to go about selling your share of the practice. In contrast, if you aren’t selling your practice, you may be focused on creating a sustainable income in retirement.
The planning approach should reflect your personal situation and take a holistic look at all aspects of your life to ensure your values and goals are aligned with your transition plan. Treloar & Heisel considers retirement planning as just one piece of the puzzle. The Full Life Process™ is designed to support your goals throughout your lifetime, including retirement.
