2.2 Start-up Summary

The following are the required start-up costs:

The purchase of Dan Jokerdoc D.D.S.’ private practice.  The purchase includes the patient list, office space, front chair and desk, two dental chairs, two light systems, fully-equiped sterilization room, compression air system with a suction unit, x-ray unit, mirrors, and a phone system.  This practice has been valued by the following variables: equipment, office space already built for a dentist, goodwill, and future revenue streams.  The equipment has been valued at $30,000, $15,000 for tenant improvements on the office space, the patient list at $5,000 and $25,000 for future profitability.  The entire practice was sold for $65,000 because Dr. Jokerdoc was in need of quick cash. Statistical studies have shown that patients that are made comfortable are likely to stay with the new doctor when a practice is sold.  This will help with cash flow, minimizing the amount of start-up cash.  The bulk of the equipment needed will procured through the purchase of the practice, however, there is a lot of equipment that will be needed to be purchased separately. 

The following list details what else will be needed.

  • Front desk equipment including a Xerox machine, fax machine, a computer terminal with Microsoft office, QuickBooks Pro, laser printer and a CD-RW.
  • Disposables which include: assorted trays and explorers, x-ray film, filling material, paper products, and impression material.
  • Placing instrument.
  • Curing instrument.
  • Ultrasonic scaler (for removal of prophylaxis).
  • High- and low-speed drills (enough for two operators).

Please note that all items that are to be used for more than a year will be classified as long-term capital assets and will be depreciated using the G.A.A.P approved straight-line method of depreciation.
