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.

I wanted to thank you for your expert assistance in facilitating our practice buy-out. We realize that we could have never consummated our deal without your help. Thanks.

Wow!  Thank you, thank you, thank you for the fantastic job you did in helping me sell my practice and building.  You and your staff’s attention to detail, professionalism and just plain hard work were the key to getting my deal done.

From time to time, some of my colleagues have told me that you can easily sell your practice on your own.   However, I realize it would have been impossible for me to complete this on my own.  The complexity of both the practice and the building sale are such that a layman would be foolish to attempt it by themselves.  As a result, I consider the fees you charged “money very well spent”!

Once again Kevin, thank you, Jan and Ryan for your expertise and a job well done.

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.

Kevin, Ryan & Jan,

Please accept my heartfelt thank you.  Retirement is great!  Your firm did what your competition couldn’t.  You were always pleasant and professional.  I think we got a good match with my successor as I’ve heard only good things since I left.  I sincerely appreciate all your work on my behalf – thank you!

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!

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

I just wanted to say thank you to Kevin, Ryan, Jan and Cheryl for all your help with the sale of my practice.  You made it a pleasant experience and I appreciate you all!

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!

Our appreciation is ten-fold!!! We can’t begin to thank you enough for all the time and effort taken in making this transition to retirement happen in our lives. You were instrumental and successful in finding a temporary dentist to help out and keep the business up and running – a relief to be sure. You were that support and catalyst that achieved an end – and for that we are so very grateful.
