After 48 years in dentistry, I knew it was time to sell my practice and building and to retire. I wanted to have a professional broker market and negotiate the sale; I did not want to do it on my own. Experience, integrity, and professional skills were my criteria for selecting a broker. I had known Kevin Shea for many years and he had all the qualities that I required. We had several offers for our practice over a period of time that were all well vetted by Kevin. Once we found the right buyer, the sale went quickly and smoothly. For any of my colleagues thinking about selling, I would highly recommend Shea Practice Transitions.
Both Mark and I wanted to take just a moment to say thank you. At a time that can be both very emotional – happy – sad – questioning, you helped us walk the walk relatively unfazed. We do not know all the little and big events that go on behind our scene, but just trusting and knowing you were there to handle it all on our behalf was reassuring. Thank you!
It’s hard to picture the next adventures that lie ahead, but we do so with a sense of awe and excitement. Life goes fast. We want to live and experience every moment to the fullest and continue to explore this glorious world God has created. Thank you again – may this year be one of valued friends. Much love and an adventure or two.

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.
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.
Thank you again for your assistance in the sale of my dental practice and building. When I made the decision to retire, I had no idea of the time and effort involved in doing so. You did a fantastic job of keeping me informed throughout the entire process. Having you handle all those little details was money well spent!
Your expertise during my transition was very much appreciated. Thanks again!

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.
Once again, I wish to thank you very much for the outstanding job in the sale of my practice. I was told by some of my colleagues about your great reputation and you did not disappoint me. My practice transition was rather complicated, however you, Jan and Ryan handled all the details from start to finish in a patient and professional manner.
What was most pleasing to me was the fact that, because of your legal and business background, you were able to handle some parts of the transaction that other brokers would be simply incapable of facilitating. My friends were right when they said that “you were the best in the business”. Once again to you, Jan and Ryan, a big 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.

After 35 years of practice in the northwest suburbs, I decided to retire and sell my practice. I decided to utilize Shea Practice Transitions in order to reach this goal. Within three weeks of the practice being listed, I had two full price offers from dentists in the Twin Cities area. I was quite surprised at having multiple offers so quickly. The valuation model that Shea Practice Transitions utilized is fair for both the purchaser and the seller of any dental practice. The sale went extremely well and I received 100% of my appraised value purchase price.
I highly recommend Shea Practice Transitions to any dentist thinking of selling their practice. It was an easy transition and was handled in a very professional manner. I would like to thank Ryan, Jan and Kevin for making the transition so easy.
Shea Practice Transitions recently sold my practice for me and I want to let anyone know how pleasant an experience it was. All three people I dealt with, Kevin, Ryan and Jan, were just so helpful and professional. I would recommend Shea Practice Transitions to anyone. You can have every confidence in them.
