Any professional practice transition activity--whether buying, selling, or associating--is one of the most important events that will happen in your professional career. Making a mistake in the process can have long-lasting effects on any or all of the parties to a transition. "Dental Practice Transitions Handbook" will provide you with the answers to basic questions when considering any transition. It is not intended to replace the experts, brokers, consultants, attorneys, accountants, and financial advisors that should be consulted as you proceed through a transition, but it should give you an understanding of the process, what to expect, and a starting point from which to begin your journey. About the Author H. M. Smith has earned a masters in business administration and is founder of Professional Transitions, a dental practice transitions consulting firm. He has been involved in dentistry for over thirty-five years and is currently the director of Transition Strategies at the Pride Institute. He has lectured at the University of Florida and Nova Southeastern University, and has presented a practice management course on transition strategies to the University of the Pacific, Marquette, and Indiana University dental schools. Mr. Smith is past president of the ADS (American Dental Sales), a member of the Practice Valuation Study Group, and a member of the Institute of Business Appraisers. He has also written numerous articles for Dental Economics on transition subjects and issues. Endorsements "If you now or ever will own, sell, or work in a dental practice this book is a must read. Hy's decades of experience in creating WIN-WIN-WIN (seller-buyer-patients) transactions is yours in a clear, concise, and entertaining account. Wherever you are in your career, the tools to create your ideal future lie within these pages." Gary M. DeWood, DDS, MS, Executive VP, Spear Education "In my long experience of working with dentists at every phase of their professional careers, I have found that finding values-driven WIN-WIN advice in transitions to be difficult and frustrating. At the Pride Institute, we trust Hy Smith's integrity and expertise! Dentists deserve good, fair information and counsel that supports their transition choices. This book delivers." Amy Morgan, CEO, The Pride Institute "No one knows more about buying or selling a professional practice than Hy Smith. My own transaction benefited greatly from his knowledge and thirty years of experience. I can't imagine anyone buying or selling without consulting this book first." Gerardo Santiago, DDS "Buying or selling a practice is full of pitfalls. Trying to do so without the help of a consummate professional like Hy Smith is a folly. My own experience couldn't have been better, thanks to his firm. I would urge any professional to read this book and consult with Hy Smith before taking action." Ron Gillenwaters, DDS

Children with chronic conditions, developmental disorders, and birth defects represent a sizeable minority of American children—as many as one in five. Often their families have financial or other issues limiting their access to appropriate care, thus limiting their adult prospects as well. Compounding the problem, many valuable resources concerning this population are difficult to access although they may be critical to the researchers, practitioners, and policymakers creating standards for quality care and services. In response, the Handbook of Children with Special Health Care Needs assembles research, applied, and policy perspectives reflecting the range of children’s problems requiring special services. Widely studied conditions (e.g., communication disorders, substance abuse) and those receiving lesser attention (e.g., tuberculosis) are covered, as are emerging ideas such as the “medical home” concept of continuity of care. Its interdisciplinary outlook makes the Handbook of Children with Special Health Care Needs a vital, forward-looking text for developmental psychologists, pediatricians, early childhood and special education researchers and practitioners, disability researchers, policymakers, and advocates, and providers for children with special health care needs.
