I have been a client of John’s since I started my practice. His intimate knowledge of dental office business guided me through the ups and downs of setting up the practice; now the practice is established. He is someone I can trust for honest and experienced advice.Sam Kadan, DMD
Since the moment I called John, I knew I was working with someone whom I could put my complete trust in. Without question John has a deep and broad knowledge of the dental field and how transitions, acquisitions, and sales should be completed. That type of competence builds trust and I was able to go forward with confidence that John would advise me on the biggest financial decision of my life. Perhaps more important than that, though, is John’s ability to put himself in your shoes and help you walk through the steps of making such an overwhelming decision. His ethics and sincere care made my transaction seem quite simple. I couldn’t give a higher recommendation.Phil Fava, DMD

Management Tip: August 2017
Your Child’s Summer Earnings Could Open an IRA
If your child has a summer job, he or she can make a contribution to an IRA for 2017.
As a general rule, anyone can open an IRA and contribute up to the amount of their wages or self-employment earnings. There is an upper limit of $5,500 for 2017. Your child can contribute to either a traditional, deductible IRA or a nondeductible Roth IRA. For your child, who is likely to be in a low or zero tax bracket, the Roth IRA may be the better choice since qualifying withdrawals will be tax-free.
Consider this: A one-time contribution to an IRA can grow dramatically. A single deposit of $3,000, for example, will grow to over $34,000 if invested at 5 percent for 50 years.
If your child does not wish to use his or her summer earnings for a retirement fund, you or a grandparent can help out. As long as the amount put into the IRA does not exceed the child’s wages, it doesn’t matter where the money comes from.
If this is an affordable option for your family, your child could have a big head start in building a nest egg. Call us if you have questions: 215-491-9566.
