We are a new kind of law firm. One that caters ONLY to Ontario dentists. Our law firm is built around you: we care about educating you, protecting you, and getting you / saving you the most money. How do we do it? We are a 1 stop shop for dentists. We help you negotiate associate agreements that are fair for you. We help you set up that professional corporation to take advantage of all the tax-saving opportunities that abound. We help you negotiate that lease for your start up and hire new staff to help build your business. We help sell your practice (including preparing it for sale, marketing it, and doing all the legal work to actually sell it) in a way that maximizes your return and minimizes your costs – AND for NO COMMISSIONS! That’s why real estate salespeople dislike us. Because we do their jobs, but better and we end up saving dentists tens of thousands of dollars! Plus, we use the latest technology to help you get your Wills and Powers of Attorney completed. And we do this while charging fixed rate fees so you know how much you’ll end up paying. No hourly rate. No hidden fees. We have reinvented professional services for dentists. We believe we are a law firm that you’ll come to love and trust for all of your business legal needs. We’re here to help and we’re very responsive, so give us a call.

Here are what dentists like you have said about us:
Testimonial from a dentist who retained David and Michael to get employee contracts in place:
“This past year, I purchased my first dental clinic…and its employees. When crunch time came, I realized simple handshakes with staff members were no longer adequate and contracts were a necessity. I was panicking as many staff members had been on board 15 or more years. Enter David and Micheal. They guided me through the entire process of designing and implementing the contracts. They helped me focus and make decisions regarding specific staff policies that were unique to my clinic, and advised me as to absolutely mandatory clauses that would help protect me. They provided clear guidance on ways to introduce the contracts so as to create as little tension in the office as possible. Within weeks, I had custom contracts delivered, signed and returned from all different team members. What I found truly incredible was their availability- these two seem to work around the clock to get a job done. I am very pleased with the final contracts, and with how my staff accepted them.”
Testimonial from a dentist who engaged DMC LLP to put an offer on a practice and also use the Letter of Intent Wizard:
“I searched dentist lawyers on Google and DMC LLP came up. So I called and David answered, I explained that we were looking to purchase our first dental practice and needed a lawyer to help us with the offer. David was extremely helpful and gave us his 200%, I was so impressed that I did not even want to call anyone else. He was willing to work with our crazy schedule and go out of his way to help us. He even stayed on the phone with us till midnight explaining everything we needed to know to purchase our first practice. We used the Letter of Intent Wizard to draft our offer. It’s user friendly, and creates a perfect LOI tailored to your requirements. David even reviewed the completed LOI, and submitted the offer on our behalf. Although our offer was not accepted, the experience with David was an unforgettable one. I will surely be using David for all my future purchases.”

Testimonial from a dentist who engaged DMC LLP and used the Letter of Intent Wizard to purchase a dental practice:
“Having just purchased a practice with the help of DMC LLP, I have so many wonderful things to say in this testimonial. From day one, Michael was amazing! He explained the process (which was more complicated than I thought) and kept everything organized and on track. He answered my questions, phone calls and emails in more than a timely manner and it was comforting to know that he was available if I needed him. David and Ljubica came onto the scene later in the deal and I am grateful to have worked with them as well. The three of them are a true “dream team” and I have the utmost confidence that they have executed their legal roles absolutely perfectly. In addition to being great lawyers, they are also very caring, friendly and fun. I leave with a perfect practice deal, a dental law firm that I will continue to use and recommend to my colleagues, and a whole new appreciation for tequila (thank you Michael!).”
Dr. A.B., DDS
