Best Practices for Writing a Maxillofacial Physicians & Surgeons Group Business Plan
Many new maxillofacial physicians and surgeons group owners feel unprepared for the challenge of writing a business plan.

Look Over Competitors
Prior to opening a maxillofacial physicians and surgeons group in your town, it's a smart move to determine how strong the competition is. Try our link below to find competitors nearby. Simply enter your city, state and zip code to get a list of maxillofacial physicians and surgeons groups in your town.
Is the established competition doing a good job? It's important to understand their strengths and weaknesses and think through how you'll stake up against those established businesses.
Learn from Others Who Are Already In This Space
Once you've finished assessing the competion, it's a wise move to learn from folks who are already in business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
On the other hand, an individual who has a maxillofacial physicians and surgeons group on the other side of the country may be more than happy to give you a few tips, given that you don't compete with them in their area. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

Benefits & Drawbacks of a Maxillofacial Physicians & Surgeons Group Acquisition
An acquisition can be a great way to enter maxillofacial physicians and surgeons group ownership. But it's important to evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of buying a business before you decide on either an acquisition or startup approach.
PROs: Acquired maxillofacial physicians and surgeons groups should be profitable right out of the gate; they should also be capable of demonstrating a loyal customer base, brand identity and operational efficiencies.
CONs: On the downside, maxillofacial physicians and surgeons group acquisitions can be difficult to adapt to your unique business philosophy so it's important to make sure the business is capable of achieving your ownership goals before you initiate the buying process.
