Testimonials

Craig Daub, D.D.S.

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!

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.

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.


Craig A. Peterson, D.D.S.

After about four years of marketing my practice myself, and with two brokers, all to no avail, I called Kevin Shea. Shea Practice Transitions produced a buyer that turned out to be a perfect fit. Kevin and his staff, Ryan and Jan, followed through to a successful transition and sale of my practice. The Shea Practice Transitions staff proved to be knowledgeable, prompt, responsive and very pleasant to work with.

Kevin Shea did something that other brokers were unable to do. Kevin has the background, experience and expertise that no one else has. I strongly recommend Shea Practice Transitions as a business consultant or transition broker to my colleagues.


Corey C. Jensen, D.D.S.

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.


James Hunder, D.D.S. and Greg Liska, D.D.S.

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.


David E. Schulte, D.D.S.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for a job WELL DONE! This entire process was a pleasure for us…you made it appear effortless. You’ve earned your reputation for competence and integrity, and it showed in the volume and quality of prospects who visited our practice. Thank you Jan, Ryan and Kevin for the overall expertise!


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.


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!


Len Carlson, D.D.S.

Thank you so much for your thorough and prompt action in selling my practice. Your attention to every detail was so very much appreciated. At closing I felt at ease as I knew all the details were covered.
