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.
