Lake Charles, LA Periodontal Practice Associate Wanted/For sale
Raymond J Steiner DDS
Location: LAKE CHARLES, Louisiana
Type: Full Time
DDS/DMD or equivalent BDS
Busy 37 year old fee for service only practice limited to periodontics and dental implants in a well-kept and updated stand alone office with five operatories. Associate desired to eventually buy the practice. This is a traditional referral style practice with well over 75 different dentists referring patients in 2022. Excellent growth potential. Expansion of services could possibly include all-on-4 implants, PRP, IV sedation, orthodontic exposures, and SFOT if desired. This is a great opportunity for the right person.
Lake Charles is located in southwest Louisiana. It has a stable and vibrant economy anchored by petrochemical refineries, tourism, aircraft maintenance, education, farming, and health care. This area has the largest liquified natural gas terminal in the world. It is the home of McNeese State University and SOWELA which have over 8000 students.
The area has a good cost of living, low crime rate and is a great place to raise a family. There are plenty of great restaurants, friendly people and lots of entertainment options. Houston, TX and New Orleans, LA are only two and a half and three and a half hours away respectively.
I am currently the sole periodontist in the five parish (county) geographical area. Because it is a traditional style referral practice, there is minimal need for external marketing. I average between 30 and 40 new patients per month.
The practice has a good mix of implant related procedures including extractions, socket grafting, implant placement, ridge augmentation and sinus lifts. Traditional periodontal treatment procedures include scaling and root planing, flap/osseous surgery, bone grafting, soft tissue grafting (free gingival grafts, connective tissue grafts and allografts), LANAP, cosmetic periodontal procedures (gingivectomy and anatomical crown exposure), crown lengthening, and periodontal maintenance. Patients are managed well with local anesthesia, nitrous oxide/oxygen, and oral sedation if needed. My dedicated staff include two excellent full time hygienists along with three dental assistants and two front desk personnel.
Technology includes digital radiographs, CBCT, Millennium laser, piezoelectric surgical system for sinus lifts, iTero digital scanner and ultrasonic and piezoelectric scalers.
I have been in solo private practice of periodontics and dental implants since 1986. I am looking for a well qualified periodontist to come in as an associate and eventually buy my practice and office.
