With over 30 years of business experience, and specialising in the dental sector for a large proportion of that time, Heather joined Goodman Grant in January 2017 from her previous role as Director of a well-known dental and pharmacy sales broker where she was responsible for the large specialist team and all practice valuations and sale transactions.
Heather’s reputation as an expert in the sector is accompanied by a passion for professional excellence. Each client benefits from her extensive commercial experience, a strong business mind and her exceptional knowledge of practice valuation methodologies and the nuances of dental practice sale transactions. She has valued over a thousand healthcare businesses and her unique professional but friendly approach ensures that practice owners can confidently explore all of their options safe in the knowledge that they will never be subjected to the usual pressure techniques typically experienced when discussing exit strategies with mainstream agents.
Heather’s extensive dental business knowledge is not just based on theory. She works as a confidential advisor to practice owners on a day-to-day basis to ensure that their business is in its best possible shape, with the profits and ultimate practice value maximised. She has an innate ability to see ‘under the skin‘ of the operational and financial aspects of a practice, and to identify strategic opportunities with easily implemented solutions. This exceptional insight also helps ensure that her knowledge of a practice is unsurpassed when identifying the optimum timing for a successful and profitable sale, and when representing the practice owner personally during the all-important negotiations with potential buyers.
