Accountancy and Tax Services for The Dental Design Studio

Dr Jeff Sherer discusses how the Samera team are helping him and his partner with their fast-growing expanding national Dental group of 13 Dental practices.

Sale of Marlborough Dental Studio

Dr Stephen Tarr has been a long-standing client of Samera Healthcare Advisors. Being his accountants for many years we were perfectly placed to help Stephen with the sale of his practice. Over a period of time, we understood Stephen’s requirements and then assisted with the valuation, negotiation and ultimately sale of his practice.

How did we help?

Samera Healthcare Advisors were able to provide the full package from accountancy and tax advice, to deal and price negotiations.  We have a very thorough vetting process to ensure all the sellers are paired up with good quality buyers, who are serious and ready to commit.  We understand the value of time to all those involved.

Dear Farisa,

I wanted to drop you a short note of thanks for all of your help and support in selling my practice into Portman. Your positive and optimistic approach to all of our conversations was refreshing and reassuring.

I’m grateful for you helping me with the negotiations. After all this is my first, and probably only, practice sale, so it’s was far less stressful having your guidance and advice.

I would very happily recommend you and Samera to anyone thinking of selling their practice.

Thanks again

Kindest regards

Barry Oulton, Dr. Barry J Oulton B.Ch.D. DPDS MNLP

The team were constantly providing support throughout the entire process and even post completion. The team understood the intricacies of my business made the process very easy and clean, which was one of my initial concerns prior to selling

I am delighted with the service provided by Samera healthcare advisors, it was clear from the onset that they were genuinely interested in helping me negotiate the best price with the right buyer. I would definitely recommend them, infact, I’ve already introduced them to three colleagues who are thinking of selling as they provided a 10/10 service.

Stephen Tarr, Marlborough Dental Studio

We recently sold our practice through the Samera team.  We received a great service throughout, friendly, professional and confident.

Expert and professional guidance and advice were given at every stage of the sale process and Samera team were there to reassure us all the way through.  We were given an idea on the timeframe and what we could achieve for the sale price based on our figures and we were told that Samera already had prospective buyers lined up for our type of practice…the kind of things you normally expect to hear.  I must say we were not disappointed!!!

Since I attended the boot camp last year, Nigel has been a one man advice/support network!  I’ve got a funding offer and hopefully my squat will happen, I can’t speak highly enough of Nigel’s input.
Mat Lowis, Dentist

I met the Samera team at international dental event and networking event and we had good and knowledgeable conversations about both the UK and the Italian Dental markets in a personable and professional approach. Very rare to find an expert in UK dental acquisitions with contacts and useful knowledge for European expansion as well.

I recently attended Samera’s ‘setting up in practice bootcamp’ in Weybridge and I must say it’s the best course I’ve been on all year by far! The Samera team have a wealth of knowledge and experience and were all very approachable. Arun and Smita were particularly inspiring and full of enthusiasm. This is a MUST DO for anyone thinking about setting up or acquiring a dental practice.

First of all, I would like to thank David Hossein who was just brilliant ever since I changed from my previous accountant. He was quick to reply, his team was very efficient and professional. He even replied to my emails late in the evening and made sure that things were done on time.
The service was outstanding and especially in a desperate situation, David was reassuring and very helpful. I’ve been recommending him to my colleagues and my family. I wish other companies could replicate this level of customer service. Thank you again David and the team!

Nate Yang

I can’t recommend Samera enough to anybody looking to secure finance for acquisition of a dental practice. I speak from personal experience ….. It took only days to get the finance in place and furthermore Nigel Crossman has gone over his remit in helping me along the process with valuable advice that saves me much time and money!
Basically if you want a result …… call Samera!

“I am very impressed and thankful about the business services I have received from you. I cannot give enough thanks for your professionalism, attention to detail and the personal touch to a project. This has opened new business horizons for me. I think I have found a professional who can handle all my business issues for the future.”

Fary Johnson

Nigel has been great at getting funding for dental practice deals in the time we have worked together and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

“Samera has dramatically changed the way I run my business. Any new developments are action-based on evidence as opposed to emotion. I can monitor my progress closely and can prepare well in advance if a storm is brewing. Best of all, the Samera team is a pleasure to work with.”

Dr Amit Coonar , Barnet Orthodontic Clinic, Herts

“You have to meet these guys – you will start looking at everything in a completely different way. They are to dentistry what Branson is to air travel”

Dr Bertie Napier , 19 Bell Street , Sawbridgeworth, Herts

“We found Arun knowledgeable and professional with great insight. they were instrumental in helping us to win a large NHS Minor Oral Surgery contract. They were also able to help us deal with a very new area in a timely and efficient way. We beat every deadline with days to spare and produced one of the highest scoring successful bids.

We would not hesitate to use the team again and would recommend them to anyone.”

Dr Mark Haswell, Stradbrook Dental Centre, Tonbridge, Kent

“I admire what you are trying to achieve in dentistry. I hope your company empowers dentists to take charge of their practice and future. I really believe it comes down to the individual dentist. We shouldn’t pretend the NHS or any big brother organisation has our core interest at heart. Those who realise this will end up working in their own private practice or partnership and enjoy a better deal from dentistry.”

Dr Davinder Jamus, Kensington Dental, London

Brilliant Team – Both my wife and I were new to the Dental Market, the support we received from Nigel and the Samera team was simply amazing. They understand your needs based on a consultative approach, craft a solution in accordance to the needs which is quite rare to see. I have no hesitation in recommending both of them and Samera as a go place.

Joey Desai

Arun and the team were fantastic, and took time to honestly explain past experiences of setting up practices. I look forward to working with them in the future.

Thank you Smita and Arun.

I am a dentist setting up my own private dental practice and Samera have been a great help as my accountants, giving lots of advice, especially in regards to all the complicated financial matters and tax. Both David and Nigel have been amazing. I have also attended the Samera ‘setting up a dental practice’ course and would definitely recommend this to friends and colleagues.

Imran Kassam

“I attended the Setting up in Practice Boot Camp last September.

I stumbled across it after looking online for advice about purchasing a practice. Having recently been put into a corner by my practice owner- buy the practice for what seemed a truly shocking price or stay on as an associate under a new boss – I had the feeling that I wanted to try and explore setting up by myself. However, I felt very overwhelmed, rushed and insecure. The Boot Camp opened a whole new perspective for me and brought me clarity, calm and determination.

Smita and Arun’s personal story was an inspiration and really touched the hidden pioneer inside me who yearned to create her very own vision and practice. They, and their friends and colleagues, explained clearly which steps to take and which mistakes to avoid on the way to building one’s business. The weekend was fun filled and fast paced and I met many like minded, interesting colleagues and made wonderful new friends instantly.

I left, still feeling very scared, but mainly exhiliarated! It is no exaggeration to say that the Boot Camp was the main deciding factor in my decision to reject a very unattractive proposition. Since then I have been working very hard and, all being well, my fabulous new practice will open late this year.


Following the Boot Camp I booked Smita and Arun’s support services for the year. The practical help and advice that was promised was always reliably delivered, but the most important thing for me was the unwavering enthusiasm for my project and the chance to discuss concerns day and, very often, night.

When things went well, I felt progress and achievements were celebrated, and when I was having a hard time, I felt supported and strengthened by long personal conversations full of emotional support and practical tips. While I know that this is a business arrangement, I feel that what is happening to me and my practice is of sincere interest to both Smita and Arun and I hope to be right in saying that we have become friends in the process. I can recommend their help to anybody, you will be very well looked after!”

Dr Stephanie Kerk, Scotland

“I attended a setting up in practice seminar with Arun in July 2007. I always wanted my own practice I just didn’t know how to create it and I didn’t want to buy an existing one as I felt I really wanted to create something different.

I had a look around the Neem Tree practice in Wandsworth and it was a complete breath of fresh air. Arun, Smita and their team had created something so different and it was a very well-run practice which was successful.

I then arranged to do the Sprint programme with Arun. We went through and put into words and got on to paper what I had in my head: the vision of the practice. Arun helped me to create a business plan and created the financial projections and then gave me contact details of people
I need to get in touch with to start the project. So much time was spent planning which really helped the whole project run smoother later.

Throughout the whole process Arun and his team have been great, helped me so much and given me so much advice and stopped me making costly mistakes.

Arun is and always has been a phone call away during the whole project and always reassuring and insightful.

It was very comforting to know that you have someone who has been through the whole process twice and knows what to do or can refer you to someone who knows the answer to a challenge.

I would whole-heartedly recommend anyone to Samera and the Sprint programme. Setting up a squat practice can be a very daunting process but breaking the project down in to smaller chunks and then taking one step at a time, whilst keeping in mind the big picture is what really helped.

Arun and his team are very caring and provided an outstanding service. They helped me kick start my dream and this is something for which I am eternally grateful for.

When I enrolled onto the Sprint programme I was looking for an advisor what I got was a business advisor, a mentor, a coach and a true friend with my interests at heart.”

Dr Nadim Majid, Lifestyle Dental Care, Lancashire
