Whether you have been in practice for many years or are establishing a practice for the first time, you know that the business aspects of your practice take your valuable time away from patient care. You may also realize that the business aspects of your practice are complex and time consuming, yet tremendously critical for your financial success. At Michael & Company, CPA, we specialize in providing tax reduction, practice benchmarking, dental accounting, and practice transition services for dentists.
We've grown our business by helping dentists grow theirs. We fully understand the difficulties (and the joys) of running a practice and take deep satisfaction in helping local dentist practice owners keep their financial houses in order, save money, avoid mistakes, and free up more time to focus on managing their practice.
We are honored by the trust and confidence our clients place in our advice and oversight. We continue to deserve your trust by staying abreast of accounting and tax law changes and by taking a proactive interest in the smooth financial management of your dental practice.
