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.

Thank you for an exceptional job in selling my practice. All of you, Kevin, Ryan and Jan were friendly, prompt and helpful. Your evaluation of my practice was fair and reasonable and you quickly had my practice on the market. Throughout the entire process, I always got quick responses to any questions or concerns that I had. I never had to wait more than a couple of hours for a response and most of them came within minutes. I know the buyer felt the same. The entire process went smoothly and professionally. I am more than pleased with the results and would, unconditionally, recommend your services to everyone for their practice sale. Thanks again for a job well done.
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!

Thank you so much for helping me with my transition. We talked about a time line, an appraised price for my practice, and my desire for a quality buyer who would care for my patients in a professional manner. All these goals were met, and all was accomplished with minimal stress for me and every step was conducted in a professional manner.
A bonus was to find that all was accomplished without incurring additional fees since you and Ryan are both attorneys. Thank you!
I am astonished at how many practice transitions you have helped me with throughout the years. From early in my career through my eventual retirement, you have always been there to give me excellent personal service and outstanding guidance. I always felt very comfortable in the operatories and running my practices; however your expertise in practice transitions was invaluable. Whether it was structuring the deal, drafting the contracts or just simply practical advice, you are the best! Thanks again Kevin and if you need any recommendations, I am happy to give them without hesitation.
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.
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.

As you know over the years, I have completed a few transactions with you. During those transactions, I have been a seller, a buyer and you also helped facilitate a buy-in. In all these situations, your expertise, integrity and professionalism have been outstanding. I know that when I eventually sell my practice, I will be looking to you for assistance once again. If anyone asks who to go to for dental practice transitions, I can say with conviction that there’s only one place to go – Shea Practice Transitions. Thanks again!
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!
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.
