We are a busy general dentistry practice located in central Vermont. One of our dentists has plans to retire as soon as we can get his replacement settled in, but he will be flexible as needed. We are currently a two-doctor/two assistant/five hygienist/two receptionist operation, and there is room to grow. Our focus is long-term restorative care, and some families have been with us for four generations. We have been restoring implants since 1988, and we do a brisk trade in them. The payment mix is fee-for-service, and we are contracted with Delta and Cigna. We do not accept any Medicaid. Equipment is modern and well-maintained. The facility is a large brick Victorian mansion owned by one of the doctors. The remaining doctor (Koch) wishes to practice for several more years and looks forward to the process of bringing on the new ideas that come with a new doctor. Dr. Koch has a long relationship with the Pankey Institute that includes being an Advisor, a faculty member, and a Pankey Scholar. He is also an AGD Master and the current vice-chair of the Vermont Board of Dental Examiners. He has much to learn, and perhaps a bit to teach.
Central Vermont is a wonderful place to live, play, and raise a family. There is great locally grown organic food, an abundance of culture, mountains and clean lakes, and a four fun seasons. Schools are highly rated, and medical care is first class. The crime rate is low, and the streets are safe. Taxes and cost of living are a bit high, but property costs are low compared to urban settings, and there is nothing better than being able to walk to work.
We are looking for either a general dentist or a prosthodontist to associate for 3 years and buy in. The vision for the practice today is to be the premier local dentists providing advanced comprehensive restorative care. That vision likely will evolve with new blood, so potential dentists need to be serious about owning and operating a fee-for-service practice. We have done very well here, and we hope to pass it on.

About George & Koch Dental Associates, PC
Founding partner Mark George wishes to retire as soon as a suitable replacement for him can be found. We are a family practice in a medium-sized town (medium by Vermont standards!), and there is room for growth. Remaining partner Bill Koch wishes to stay on and be part of the coming adventure. This is a three-year associateship with the option for partnership afterward. Our practice provides a range of services, but our focus is long-term restorative care. Bill is a former Teaching Assistant and Advisor at the Pankey Institute, a Pankey Scholar, an AGD Master, and a member of the Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics. This means he has a lot to learn from an associate and perhaps a bit to pass along as well. The office has nine ops, and there is room for 2-4 more on the second floor. Current staff consists of two receptionists, two assistants, and five hygienists. Equipment is modern and well-maintained, and all of this happens in a brick Victorian mansion.
