Testimonials

Robert T. Nelson, D.D.S.

Thank you so much for your invaluable help in the sale of my dental practice. As you know, the sale of my practice involved over 35 years of my life’s work, and thus its sale had the potential to cause some anxiety. With your assistance, my anxieties were minimized. You certainly earned every penny of your commission. I know I couldn’t have sold my practice without your help, and if you ever need any recommendations, I would gladly provide them for you.


Dr. Tom Schoeneberger

Dear Kevin,

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.

Most sincerely,

Dr. Tom & Judy Schoeneberger

Dr. Alan Quam

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.


Anita Thomas, D.D.S.

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.


David DeSimone, D.D.S.

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.


Dr. Donald A. Johnson

I wanted to thank you for all the help you’ve given me over the years. I have always relied upon you to give me counsel that is knowledgeable, insightful and trustworthy. I believe that part of my success is attributable to surrounding myself with good people who do their jobs exceptionally well, and you are certainly at the top of that list.


Alan D. Mjolsnes, D.D.S.

Saying thank you seems inadequate for the gratitude I feel for the way you handled the sale of my dental practice.

As all of us know, it was hard for me to finally say I was ready for an exit plan.  Your team at Shea Practice Transitions presented multiple options, including the one I chose, to merge and transition my practice.  This allowed me to get away from the administrative responsibilities of running a business while being able to keep some “wet fingers” in the game for a bit, which was really my desire.

Your methods are professional and ethical, and I have already passed your name on to others.  Both my wife and I thank you for being not only concerned about us, but also dealing fairly with the purchasers.


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.


Robert W. Hasel, D.D.S.

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!
