Testimonials

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.


David E. Weiss, D.D.S.

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.


Lee C. Lerberg, D.D.S.

I want to personally thank you for the outstanding job you all did on the sale of my dental practice. The thoroughness of Shea Practice Transitions through the whole process from appraisal, finding a buyer, contracts and transition details was first class all the way. Best of all, the final price was over the appraised price!

Working with Shea Practice Transitions gave me peace of mind. Thank you.


Mark Murphy, D.D.S.

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


Gary L. Bergh, D.D.S.

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.


Kenneth J. Buechele, D.D.S.

Kevin conducted a thorough appraisal of my practice…Kevin located a very qualified buyer, negotiated the sale on my behalf, and drafted all the necessary documents to complete the sale. Kevin, Ryan and Jan were very professional and I was extremely pleased with the expert manner in which my practice sale was handled. Without hesitation, I would recommend Kevin Shea to my colleagues.


Dr. Ronald Bliss

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.


Dr. Christopher Brown

I want to thank you so much for helping me with my practice transition.  When a dentist retires, it can be a very stressful situation.  You find yourself grappling with finding the right buyer, financing the sale (and in my case putting together the real estate financing and sale), as well as the numerous details that go into completing the deal.  With your decades of experience and expert assistance, things went about as smooth as possible.  You were always available with succinct advice and the utmost professionalism (and that goes for your wonderful assistant Jan, as well).

There are some things that a dentist can do on his own, but selling his dental practice is not one of them.  It’s just too important, so I left it to the very best!  Thanks again Kevin and best wishes.


Allan R. Garvis, D.D.S.

I want to thank you once again for helping me with the sale of my practice. As you know, a dentist’s life’s work is personified in his practice. It’s also a life change, emotionally as well as the business aspect. When the time came for me to sell the practice, the how, what and where were handled by you with skill, competence and knowledge. This made the transition go extremely successfully. Thank you.


Dr. Mark Nelson

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.
