I’m writing to express my thanks and appreciation for the way you handled the sale of my dental practice. When I contacted you in May of this year and informed you I was ready to retire, I felt I gave you a list of requirements to meet that would take some time to fulfill. Yet, within six weeks you had a qualified person who met all my criteria for the sale. As a result, my practice has been acquired by a seasoned professional, the members of my staff have all been retained, my patients are in good hands, and I have been adequately compensated for my forty-four years in dental practice. Please accept my sincere thanks and appreciation for the expeditious and professional manner in which you handled the sale and transition of my life’s work.
I know I could not have managed this practice transition without you. You handled everything from start to finish and took care of all the details in between. As you know, we not only had the sale of my practice, but also an office lease and my post-closing employment agreement. You handled all of these masterfully. Throughout the entire process, your team kept me (and most importantly my wife) fully informed about all the goings on.
Probably most appreciated was your and Jan’s disposition through the entire process. Both of you kept us well informed and you stayed level-headed, even when things became somewhat intense. It’s always appreciated to have a cool hand at the wheel.
Of course we would highly recommend you to any other doctor considering a practice transition. We experienced first-hand why everyone says you are “the best in the business”. Thanks so much and best wishes.

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!
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.
Dear Ryan, Kevin and Jan,
I want to sincerely thank you for all of your diligent efforts in the sale of my dental practice and share of the office condominium. Despite several unexpected hurdles, you handled each of them efficiently and never wavered in your focus. I felt great assurance that my practice transition was being handled by the best in the business! Thank you all.
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.
A note of thanks – the sale of our dental practice was the smoothest transaction we have ever experienced. From your detailed appraisal to the final closing, the whole process was done quickly and very professional. At first we were somewhat apprehensive with the market value since it was a buyer’s market and poor economy. You obviously knew better than we did. The whole transaction was done with professionalism and in a friendly way. Thank you so much.
It’s really hard to put into words how elated I feel about the sale of my practice. You three have done so much to insure our financial security. Many, many thanks!!
I want to thank you once again for helping me with the sale of my practice. As you know, a dentist’s life’s work is personified in his practice. It’s also a life change, emotionally as well as the business aspect. When the time came for me to sell the practice, the how, what and where were handled by you with skill, competence and knowledge. This made the transition go extremely successfully. Thank you.
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.
