“We’re excited to have an experienced veteran of the dental industry join our team and expand our footprint,” said Matt Porter, MBA, CVA, principal and co-founder at Menlo Dental Transitions.

Dahler launched his career in the dental division at Bank of America Practice Solutions. During his 13-year tenure, he spearheaded business development across a six-state region in the upper Midwest. His exceptional performance earned him a place in the President’s Club multiple times.

To further provide value for dentists, Dahler joined Henry Schein’s Business Institute as a faculty member. In his role, he taught entrepreneurial dentists about financial planning associated with their banking needs as they looked to scale and ultimately exit their practices.

Most recently, Dahler served as principal and director of acquisitions at BlueSky Real Estate Group. He identified dental, veterinary and medical buildings for the company to purchase and lease back to medical professionals and groups. He also cultivated strong relationships with doctors, dental service organizations, and practice and real estate brokers to identify opportunities to expand the company’s real estate portfolio.

In his new role at Menlo Dental Transitions, Dahler will help dentists in the eastern half of the U.S. accurately value and successfully sell their practices.

“My experience in both banking and real estate investment will allow me to provide unique insights and sound counsel as I help doctors evaluate their exit options,” Dahler said. “I look forward to helping doctors achieve their professional and financial goals as they look to transition into their next chapter in life.”

Menlo Dental Transitions was founded in 2014 and became the leader in Arizona dental practice transitions. In recent years, the firm has expanded its practice appraisal and sales services nationwide. With the addition of Dahler, the Menlo Dental Transitions team now includes five practice brokers, each with their own geographic area.

“We’ve done a great job assembling a team of top talent in Arizona,” said Menlo Dental Transitions co-founder, Tanner Milne, MBA, SIOR, CCIM. “Dave is our first out-of-state hire and the epitome of Menlo’s core values. I can’t wait to see how this move impacts the future of Menlo over the next 10 years.”
