Transfer of a business with negative reviews

Hi, not sure if this is a correct forum.

I am looking to buy a dental office and it already has some reviews which are rather not flattering. As a new owner/dentist is it possible to start anew? In the eyes of the law it would be a completely new business with new tax number, medical registration number, etc., but the name will stay the same.

Sophe, I think you are right in your thinking.  You are starting a "new" business.  I would first recommend, if you can, obtain the Google My Business access and then remove the listing (as found in Google My Business with owner access).  Once it has been officially removed, create a new one.
