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.

Shea Practice Transitions did a remarkable job with the sale of my dental practice. Ryan was very diligent in pursuing all leads and was able to sell my practice much quicker than I anticipated. I was also very impressed with Ryan’s communication with me throughout the process. He kept me informed each step of the way.
I feel strongly that Shea Practice Transitions’ well-earned reputation and hard work enabled the whole process to be completed quickly. I couldn’t be more pleased with the doctors who will be carrying on my legacy.
It’s been a year since I sold my practice so that I could take a peaceful sabbatical. It was definitely the right decision as I was able to spend time with the family, rest and take lots of continuing education for my future contribution to dentistry.
Thank you ever so much for your expertise and guidance in the sale of my practice. You helped make it an easy transition and things went smoothly. Thank you for doing what you do. You are a needed key to helping dentists start and stop as life calls.
Edward Deutschmann, D.D.S.
I wanted to write you to thank you for the tremendous job you did for me in my practice buy-out. As you know, my transaction was somewhat complicated and it involved issues regarding contracts, finance, real estate, an employment contract and many other details. I found your expertise and counsel to be invaluable. I could never have done this on my own and I feel you are the best in the business when it comes to dental practice transition matters.
Please feel free to use my name as a reference for any dentist considering a practice transition. Thanks again.
James Hunder, D.D.S. and Greg Liska, D.D.S.
We have worked with Kevin for over 10 years. Before that, we worked with some other “experts” whom made it virtually impossible for us to get anything accomplished. However after we started working with Kevin, everything became much easier. Kevin is great to work with; he has helped us with several transactions, including two associate buy-ins, practice appraisals, associate searches, buy-outs and everything in between. When it comes to practice transitions, Shea Practice Transitions’ expertise, knowledge and personal service are unsurpassed. In our opinion, every dentist should use Shea Practice Transitions for their practice transition.
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.
Dear Kevin & Ryan,
I am happy to share a favorable review for the way the sale of my practice was handled by Shea Practice Transitions. Working with you was a very positive experience, and the sale of my practice was handled in a professional manner from the appraisal, marketing, contracts and transition to the buyer. I never felt as if my timeline was not respected, or that an offer had to be accepted by me. I always felt that you had my best interests as the primary concern.
I will without reservation advise others to utilize Shea Practice Transitions for the sale of their dental practice.
Dr. Ron McClure
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!
I want to thank you so much for helping me with my practice transition. When a dentist retires, it can be a very stressful situation. You find yourself grappling with finding the right buyer, financing the sale (and in my case putting together the real estate financing and sale), as well as the numerous details that go into completing the deal. With your decades of experience and expert assistance, things went about as smooth as possible. You were always available with succinct advice and the utmost professionalism (and that goes for your wonderful assistant Jan, as well).
There are some things that a dentist can do on his own, but selling his dental practice is not one of them. It’s just too important, so I left it to the very best! Thanks again Kevin and best wishes.
Thank you so much for helping with the sale of my Duluth practice. Without your help, and trying to do it on my own, I almost accepted an initial offer that, in retrospect, had very unfavorable terms and was substantially less than what I ultimately received from a different buyer. Your expertise and approach made the negotiations, financing, and practice transition very smooth.
I now have great peace of mind in knowing that the sale of my practice is secure for my retirement. I highly recommend you to any dentist considering a practice transition.
