I received a timely suggestion from a retired dental friend of mine. His advice was to contact Kevin Shea. My friend’s opinion proved to be extremely valuable. After forty plus years of practice, my patients had become like my family and Kevin was careful to match my personality and office with the proper person. My confidentiality was respected and Kevin’s professional yet amiable demeanor helped greatly in our proceedings. I can truly say it was a real pleasure to work with Shea Practice Transitions.
After 40 years of practice, I felt it was time for my wife and I to retire. Kevin Shea and his associates made our transition seamless! He was so very helpful and anticipated and solved any potential problems before they occurred. Thank you.
Recently I had the pleasure of working with Kevin Shea (Shea Practice Transitions) to transition my Minneapolis dental practice of thirty years. Kevin and his team did an outstanding job of handling a process that was both daunting and complicated. Kevin’s vast experience in this area was obvious, and I felt that I was very well represented. Even the smallest details were handled seamlessly and I would highly recommend his services to anyone.
After about four years of marketing my practice myself, and with two brokers, all to no avail, I called Kevin Shea. Shea Practice Transitions produced a buyer that turned out to be a perfect fit. Kevin and his staff, Ryan and Jan, followed through to a successful transition and sale of my practice. The Shea Practice Transitions staff proved to be knowledgeable, prompt, responsive and very pleasant to work with.
Kevin Shea did something that other brokers were unable to do. Kevin has the background, experience and expertise that no one else has. I strongly recommend Shea Practice Transitions as a business consultant or transition broker to my colleagues.
A million thank you’s for a job well done in the sale of my practice. You skillfully matched me with a dentist who almost universally shared my practice philosophy. It gives me great comfort in knowing that my patients will be in capable hands. As I have told you many times, I’m very glad I hired you and I would recommend you highly to my colleagues. Thanks once again.
After unsuccessfully negotiating on my own for six months with a prospective buyer, I decided I needed a ‘buffer’; someone to be in the middle who had perspective and the ability to work through all the sticking points that get in the way of concluding a sale. I found that person in Ryan Brengman of Shea Practice Transitions. Five months later I retired.
Ryan did the appraisal, all the negotiating, helped us give the buyer and his bank the documentation they required, prepared all the documents, and got us to closing. I was impressed with his professionalism, his thoroughness and attention to detail, and his ability to find a qualified buyer. I would recommend his services without reservation.

I am so very pleased with the practice sale that you recently implemented for me. Your attention to every item and your follow-up on the smallest details was wonderful and surely led to the rapid transfer of ownership. Thank you so much for your care and concern throughout. I am indebted to you for guiding me through this cumbersome process. I will recommend your services to anyone who should ask. With warm personal regards, John.
Many thanks for your assistance in the sale of my practice! When I contemplated selling my practice, I considered others, but I know I made the very best choice with Shea Practice Transitions. I can see why you have built such an outstanding reputation. As you know, the sale of a practice can be very difficult for a dentist. You made the process as easy as it could be under somewhat bittersweet circumstances. Best of all, although I am leaving behind some friendships, I feel that I have made new friends in all of you!
During my years of practice, I demanded the highest standards and performance from myself and my staff; in the sale of my practice, Shea Practice Transitions met or exceeded these high standards. The services provided were very comprehensive, including the appraisal, marketing, contract drafting, legal issues, negotiation, financing, closing and transition. I would recommend Kevin wholeheartedly to my friends and colleagues.
As always, it has been a pleasure working with you during the sale and transition of my dental practice. I know how hard it is to orchestrate an event of this magnitude such as the sale of a private dentist’s personal dental practice. You have provided the expertise and direction needed for such an important event in one’s life. It is no easy task coordinating all the “experts” we have to deal with such as accountants and lawyers, but you have added the all important buffer to bring everyone together on the same page and still come out liking each other. Likewise, the details needed in transactions like this are immense. Your many years of experience speak for themselves, as you have helped all of us through many details otherwise unknown to us for the purpose of making a successful sale. Thank you again!
