Testimonials

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

Recently I had the pleasure of working with Kevin Shea (Shea Practice Transitions) to transition my Minneapolis dental practice of thirty years.  Kevin and his team did an outstanding job of handling a process that was both daunting and complicated.  Kevin’s vast experience in this area was obvious, and I felt that I was very well represented.  Even the smallest details were handled seamlessly and I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

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.

Dear Ryan, Kevin and Jan,

When I decided to sell my dental practice and building, I contemplated doing so on my own.  Ultimately, I decided it was better to call you to represent me.  I am so pleased that I did!  First of all, I had no idea all the work that went into selling a dental practice, much less the building.  Secondly, you found a perfect buyer for my practice and building.  I take great comfort in knowing my patients and staff will be very pleased with my successor.

Thank you all again for all your efforts.

I want to thank you again for your invaluable assistance in getting our deal done…


Richard B. Fuller, D.D.S.

After almost 40 years practicing dentistry, I decided it was time to call it quits and move on to another chapter in my life.  At first I attempted to find a buyer without the help of a broker because, “I could!”

Well after three prospective buyers and one who just walked away minutes before signing the purchase agreement because she had “personal issues”, I decided it was time to hire an expert in practice transitions and stop trying to do it myself.

All I can say is that the decision to go with Shea Practice Transitions was worth every penny!

Ryan Brengman was easy to deal with and had great ideas on how to proceed with the sale.  After showing the office to multiple prospects and discussing the financials, he came up with a vetted buyer who fit my needs.

Moving on to closing the deal turned into a nightmare with the Landlord, but we finally completed negotiations with Ryan’s expert help and 24/7 attention to details.

I recommend Shea Practice Transitions to any dental professional who is ready to make the transition to retire and wants to get a buyer that is vetted and not just a tire kicker.

I wanted to write you a short note of thanks for helping me in my practice transition. The way you handled the transaction and all the details gave me a great deal of comfort and confidence that things were being done correctly.

I could not be happier with the doctor you found to continue the treatment of my patients. I have peace of mind in knowing that they will be in good hands. You certainly earned your exemplary reputation for being the best in the business!


Kathleen McCann, D.D.S.

Ryan Brengman and the team at Shea Practice Transitions designed the perfect sale of my practice, finding just the right buyer to allow me to semi-retire but remain active as a part-time associate in the practice.  I appreciated Ryan’s understanding of my transition needs, and his creativity and patience were genuine.  Ryan’s sense of humor made a serious life transaction very uplifting and positive.


Dennis E. Simpson, D.D.S.

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!


Dr. Arlan Winikoff

It has been a pleasure to work with Shea Practice Transitions.  My unique circumstances left me with a dilemma that they readily solved, and it was surprisingly easy.  In the end, I now have the best of both worlds, selling my practice along with the ability to give my patients a wonderful fit with a new practice, while I continue to work part-time.  Everything went very well due to their knowledge and professionalism.  I couldn’t be happier.
