Jay Harter was amazing at finding a qualified, satisfactory buyer for us! We had interest from a dozen buyers but the person who eventually bought the practice was the best! Jay continually was searching for options to find a buyer and then close the sale! Jay took a personal interest in us and was concerned when the practice did not sell as quickly as we had anticipated. We are very happy!

Kerri McCullough was fantastic! Very professional, thoughtful, and positive. The process of buyer banking and appraisals needs much improvement, but Kerri handled it great and best of all great results. I would highly recommend Kerri from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions as a transition consultant!

Having time to reflect on the sale process last year, I am simply amazed at how Sara Marterella made it appear to be a “slam dunk”. I know that was only possible due to the care and attention she took in preparing to place my practice on the market. When the sale was successfully completed during the early reopening phase of COVID-19, Sara certainly demonstrated that she had “her fingertips on the pulse” of Michigan dental practices and potential buyers. But beyond all that, it was simply a pleasure to get to know her and work together!

Thank you, Charles “Chalie” Costa, and your team so much for your dedication and direction in transitioning the sale of my Periodontal practice this past December 2020. I would have liked to have said that this transition was easy and smooth, but given the circumstances and the COVID-19 pandemic, it was at the least a bit stressful. Without the help and guidance of my local consultant and the leadership of HSPPT especially, Chalie (who by the way worked EXTREMELY hard on this) the transition may not have happened. With the commitment of HSPPT, the purchaser’s commitment, and the willingness of all to get this done by year’s end, the final result was a win-win. Kudos to all 👍
Can’t thank you all enough for your dedication and hard work. Job well done!👌

I started this process over one year ago with Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions (HSPPT and their representative, Sara Marterella. I am a one-person, small general dental practice in Lansing, MI. I have been in practice in the same location for approaching 40 years. When I first contacted Sara it was strictly to gather information about practice transition options. I had no idea how much my practice was “worth” on the open market. So the first thing Sara recommended was a certified practice appraisal which HSPPT would accomplish. I moved forward and soon had a certified practice appraisal in hand that then allowed me to start exploring options of a potential sale and retirement. Sara was extremely professional, courteous, and helpful in the fact-gathering first phase of what would soon turn into a practice sale. Next, I decided to move forward with placing the practice on the market which was not a straightforward endeavor for neither Sara nor me. I had been practicing in the same location for nearly 40 years! The building I started in 40 years ago was a converted home to office setting by the landlord just as I started looking for office space as a young D.D.S. Now, 40 years later as I decide to sell my practice the landlord, who had always been uncooperative, decided to sell his building. He told both myself and Sara he would not entertain writing a lease for a “new” D.D.S. to take over my business, he wanted out of the building. His price was outrageous which left little options on getting anyone to buy my existing practice with no lease available. Sara reviewed every conceivable option with me in an attempt to still potentially sell my practice in some fashion. Then, COVID hit and the landlord never listed the building, just sat on it and left me dead in the water. Finally, Sara contacted the D.D.S. directly across the street and began a negotiation with him, which led to the sale of my practice!
Sara worked diligently through the merger process and brought me the best possible outcome in a less than ideal time and circumstance that allowed me to sell and move forward. Her knowledge, professionalism, pleasant personality, and persistence sealed this deal and allowed me to move on with life after Dentistry. I would highly recommend Sara Marterella and her team for anyone interested in a practice transition, she delivered under less than ideal conditions!

As the Trustee of my late father’s estate, it was my responsibility to market and sell the dental practice that he owned. I am not a dentist and found myself in a quandary as to where to begin. Then I was directed to Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, specifically their agent, Matthew (“Matt”) Sutton, who my husband and I found to be a first-rate professional in every respect. As my husband is an attorney, he was assured every step of the way that every facet of the marketing and sales process was legally sufficient. Beyond that, we found Matt’s positive, upbeat demeanor to be a comfort in dealing with the lead purchasing dentist who had never experienced a professional buy-sell transaction. We discovered that Matt was able to provide a reassuring hand to this dentist. Matt is a master of diplomacy, which is in demand at those junctures when the process could reach a snag but never materialized thanks to his anticipation of not only the issues but the answers. I also want to underscore Matt’s integrity. There were times when he could have pressured me to “cave” on my asking price (which was well within the appraised value of the practice) in order to make a quick sale and ensure his commission. But Matt did not do that, nor did he even hint of such an idea. In other words, Matt Sutton put my interests ahead of his own at every step. If these factors resonate with you then I would not hesitate to hire him.
Mrs. Cheryl Edgin
I highly recommend Greg Whitmer from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions if selling your practice. His knowledge made the entire process run smoothly. Greg is always available to answer questions or provide guidance, and even working through the COVID pandemic was able to find the perfect buyer for my practice.

I just completed the sale of my 37-year-old dental practice. I worked diligently throughout the years to build up my practice, to create a strong team of practitioners, and to give my patients top-notch care. Selling and passing along my practice involved complicated decisions and myriad details. That’s is why I am so pleased to recommend Matt Sutton, Transition Sales Consultant from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. Matt did an outstanding job which resulted in a positive outcome for all. Matt demonstrates expertise in handling the process of transitions. He is knowledgeable and thorough; moreover, he is always willing to go the extra mile to help. Matt is very upfront and honest about all aspects of the particulars, a quality that gave me confidence as we worked together. Matt offered the positives and negatives about all aspects of the process, giving me the ability to make informed decisions. Furthermore, Matt advocated for me while making sure the buyer was given the necessary information to bring the sale to fruition. Every step of the way, we were apprised of the process. I am confident that Matt will exceed all expectations. No one works harder than Matt. I will always be indebted to him, and I now consider him a friend.
Brian Davis, D.D.S. – Seller
I sold my dental practice after 33 years and, like many private practitioners, my practice was my life because I basically built it from the ground up. So, there was a strong feeling of cutting the cord to my “baby”. After raising that practice up, I wanted to be sure that whomever I chose to take over would care for it AND my patients like they were their own. But, at the same time, I knew that I too “wanted to be taken care of” in retirement.
When I was in dental school, we were told that the best type of advertising was word of mouth. That if you did good dentistry and treated people fairly, they would return and your practice would grow. Well, the dental school faculty was right. My practice did grow, flourished, and continued to grow and flourish all without any type of advertising other than a small Yellow Pages ad. They said if you do what is right your reputation among your peers will grow in favorability also. As it happens, the individual who would eventually end up buying my practice was referred to me through a colleague. So, again the faculty was correct, do good, be fair and your colleagues will notice.
After meeting with and talking to the person who would buy my practice, I was put in contact with Mr. Matthew Sutton of Henry Schein Practice Transitions. From the very beginning, Matt made me comfortable with the idea of selling my practice, which is a hard decision for a lot of us. He provided encouragement and direction on how we would proceed and a timeline of when we would get there. Matt took control of this monumental task and always, I mean always kept in touch with me on a regular basis. He brought me up to date on where we were, the documents of what will be needed next and gave this information to me in advance, so we were not under a time crunch to get things done. There were times that even though we were on schedule I would call Matt in a panic. But Matt would calm me down and assure me that he would take care of whatever it was. Whew!!!! Matt is indeed a professional. He gathers the information he knows is going to be required and he and his “team ” of analysts use this information to come up with a purchase price, a price based on analysis, research, facts and comparisons. In other words, a “fair” price to both the seller and buyer. Let me be clear, Matt worked on MY behalf. No games, no smoke screens just fair and square. When it came to using other professionals (ie: lawyers, bankers, consultants), Matt provided names of people to contact and let me make the decision of who to use. Matt’s been doing this many years and has a lot of contacts. As the time grew closer to “closing” I found myself contacting Matt and my attorney more frequently, daily. But again, Matt would take control, calm me down and we would move on to the next step. Matt stayed in contact with my attorney and a lot of the little communications that I didn’t have to be a part of was handled between them. Finally, we reached the day of closing and because of all the preparation, Matt had done it was a smooth transition without any bumps in the road. And believe me, that’s what you want.
So, to any dentist thinking about retirement or just looking to turn the reigns over to someone else, contact Matt Sutton of Henry Schein Practice Transitions. He will take control of this very stressful event in your life and walk you through it in a well-organized professional manner so that you will never regret your decision. If anyone would like to talk to me about my experience working with Matt, please give me a call.

It was such a pleasure working with Snowden Brown who helped me immensely with my practice acquisition. Snowden guided me through the entire process from the initial practice search to the final sale. She was always just a phone call away and with her thorough knowledge in dental transitions, she gave me professional and caring guidance to help me make the right decision in every step of the way. The course of the acquisition was very smooth and she mitigated both parties very well, resulting in a more than satisfactory transition for all. My wife and I will always be grateful to Snowden for helping us embark on our new journey. Thank you Snowden!

My partner and I were referred by a mutual business associate to Ms. Donna Costa. She proved to be a dedicated, committed, and professional broker throughout the entire process. Our transition process was interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and even though we were weeks away from closing when the State of PA closed us down, she stayed vigilant, connected, and encouraging to all involved parties. We had timely communications via phone and email. She was always realistic and encouraging, in addition to being a genuinely nice person to deal with. She was generous with her time, and made many trips to our office whenever she could be of assistance. She never gave us the impression that we were burdening her, or that any request was “too much” even though things did get complicated by the pandemic. It almost felt that she had to do twice as much negotiating because of the delays. Never did that seem to be a bother to her. She saw us through to a successful practice transition and made sure that all parties were happy. No question left unanswered, no stone unturned to ensure that the deal would go through. We both remain greatly appreciative of her good nature, and mostly, the quality and professionalism of her actions on our behalf.

Richard Oberbeck is the ultimate professional! I can really say with confidence, his time and energy worked smoothly in my favor. He truly handled the sale of my general dental practice to meet my timeframe. He was organized and methodical in his approach from the beginning and guided me every step of the way from the appraisal stage and listing, to a smooth sale that was completed within six months (including two months of being closed with the pandemic)! Rich’s availability to questions and his candid advice were invaluable and he truly met my needs as a retiring professional. The attorney he recommended was top notch as well and the sale of my practice occurred about as smoothly as possible. I highly recommend Richard Oberbeck as your Transition Sales Consultant. He will be with you to the end and he is also a nice guy!

Team Anderson from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions did a wonderful job helping me to transition into retirement during this very difficult era of the coronavirus pandemic. Bob and Eileen Anderson were totally professional and very responsive and hardworking. Together we faced many headwinds, but with their combined expertise and optimism, I think I got the best possible result. I highly recommend them to anyone considering a practice transition.
Theresa Crawley, D.D.S. – Seller
I can’t say enough good things about the Andersons and the handling of my practice transition. Eileen Anderson has an accounting background, which was extremely helpful, and Bob Anderson has over 30 years in the dental industry. They worked very well together and were extremely efficient. They were also sensitive to the qualities I wanted in a buyer. My wife and I had considered the possibility of trying to do the transition ourselves. DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! Especially if you are still practicing! They find the buyers, vet them, show them the practice, and advise you about them. There are reams of documents that need to be produced to satisfy a buyer’s accountant. Eileen was able to walk me through any document that needed to be produced. Eileen was also able to help with the organization and production of documents for closing, which saved me a lot in attorney’s fees. They take a lot of the stress out of the whole process. Eileen and Bob’s help was well worth the fee!

I had a wonderful experience working with Michael Apalucci. He guided me step by step through the entire process. Mike demonstrated terrific intuition in finding the perfect buyer for my practice. He was always available for answering questions and providing proper feedback. Mike was instrumental in closing the purchase in a timely manner. I highly recommend working with Mike if you are looking to work with someone who will truly listen to you and will always have your best interest in mind.
Dr. Dorothy Cutolo – Seller
Linda Zalkin was my Transition Sales Consultant from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. Linda was great at bringing qualified buyers, excellent at filtering the buyers for my style of practice, and most of all brought practitioners I felt comfortable transitioning my patients. Linda was professional, honest, and very capable. I was able to transition my practice and when it all concluded, everyone was happy with the result.

The transaction in question occurred in September 2020. I contacted Matthew Sutton to assist in disposing of a dental practice for my friend whose husband died unexpectedly the month prior. I attempted to help her sell the practice but we were grossly unsuccessful. When we finally reached out to Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, we were lucky to get Matt. Matt was extremely helpful and treated us as though we had a million-dollar practice. He was in constant contact with us and spent numerous hours trying to help my friend. She was not in any condition to handle the transaction so I was the primary contact with Matt. He was instrumental in selling the business, extremely knowledgeable, always professional, always empathetic and kind, always available to answer any questions. It didn’t matter the time of day or the question. Words cannot express our gratitude to him for his help and his treatment of us. After going through this process, I believe that the service you offer is invaluable and I would recommend Matt to anyone who needs this type of assistance.
Ms. Garna Giddens
When I made the decision to sell my dental practice, the task of doing so seemed insurmountable. It was a very emotional and life-changing event. Therefore, I felt I needed a practice broker that understood the emotions from firsthand experience and would be by my side throughout the process. After the first few minutes of my initial conversation with Dr. Russell Okihara, I knew that he was the perfect fit.
Dr. Okihara’s professionalism and knowledge of dental practice sales was exemplary. He expertly guided me throughout the entire sale and efficiently navigated the various stages involved. Throughout the entire process, I felt extremely confident that Dr. Okihara would address any questions or concerns that I had along the way. More importantly, I felt that he cared; the sale of my practice was just as important to him as it was to me. I was comfortable and confident in his recommendations and guidance.
In addition to Dr. Okihara, everyone involved at Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions was terrific. It was clear that the entire team takes pride in their work and their collaboration together was seamless.
Selling a dental practice requires surrounding yourself with people who are experienced and knowledgeable. I would like to thank Dr. Okihara and his entire team for their assistance in the sale of my practice.

Jay Harter did a fantastic job working with our team and the seller. He put in the extra effort, time, and energy to make sure the deal went through and closed. He took our calls and text messages frequently during off-hours and worked to ensure a smooth transition. I personally would like to thank Jay for his talents and work on our deal. We hope to work with Jay and Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions in the future on additional deals!
Mr. Adam Ingersoll
Linda Zalkin of Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions did a phenomenal job of marketing and selling my practice! This was probably the toughest year of any to sell a practice due to COVID. In fact, a deal we had that was close to closing in March 2020 fell through due to the mandated closures. But Linda remain undaunted and by the fall, not only was my practice sold, but she got full asking price as well! That speaks volumes about her abilities!

When selling my practice I was fortunate to have Curtis Regimbal as my consultant. I started two years ago with Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, had the greatest of offers, and then declined. I just was not ready. Curtis had worked extremely hard to get the offers but supported me when I felt I could not go through with it. I felt I was ready this year and called Curtis. He welcomed me and got things rolling right away. This process is quite involved, and Curtis was with me every step of the way. He anticipated my every need and helped me through all the complicated stages of the transition. There is a huge emotional side to selling something you have been a part of for over 40 years. Long term staff and patients, the emotions are overwhelming! He answered all my questions, helped me when I was about to forget the whole thing (again!), and helped me see the bigger picture. Curtis was extremely professional and helped me with recommendations for retaining representation for all the legal processes that were necessary. Now that the dust has settled, I am certain that this was the right decision. I am glad that I listened. I can retire now knowing that all is going to be ok with my practice, and I can finally relax.

I loved working with Sara Marterella. Right from the start, she showed up on time, answered our questions honestly, and made the entire process as smooth as possible. She scores high for honesty, integrity, and professionalism, and has the personality to work through the details with third parties (buyers, banks, attorneys, appraisers, etc…) to gain agreement and get the job done. The bottom line is that my practice and building were sold at a great price, in a short amount of time during a pandemic. I am ever so grateful that we chose to list with Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions and cannot recommend Sara highly enough. She’s a star!

I highly recommend Donna Bambrick from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions —she is very knowledgeable and she certainly is always there to help and to give good advice. She does everything possible to “ move things along”, which is so important when the buyer and seller so often have minimal experience in these transactions.

Greg Johnson – Seller, Geremy Haseloff – Henry Schein PPT Consultant, and Whitney McBrayer, Buyer
Geremy Haseloff has been my Henry Schein Dental Rep for several years. Most recently, Geremy assisted in the sale of my dental practice with Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. Geremy spent countless hours with me and behind the scenes combing through my practice to obtain an accurate measure of its value. I believe I received top dollar for my dental practice. Geremy was quick to accede to my reasonable and sometimes unreasonable demands which is a credit to him and his work ethic. I highly recommend Geremy for his abilities and personal service.
Greg Johnson, D.D.S. – Seller
Our efforts to sell our practice and retire began in the Fall of 2019. After being unsuccessful at finding a buyer, a colleague referred us to Jay Harter from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. Henry Schein’s comprehensive evaluation was the first step that made a difference. Then, even with the challenges that COVID brought in 2020, Jay brought us two offers. He later added Scott Weinberger to the team, and the two of them covered all bases and were attentive to every need and concern. We also hired Robert Sanders as our legal counsel. Without each of these individuals and their insight and experience, we might not have had a successful sale. There were hurdles we didn’t expect, but they knew how to handle every difficult situation and closed the sale. Before this experience, we had no idea how important the right professionals are to a successful sale. We’re very grateful.
Mrs. Rebecca Berg – Seller
Jay Harter has been totally professional with us in this whole process of selling our dental practice and he proved to us that he was very committed to helping us find a qualified buyer to take care of our patients and staff and to take over our practice! He was able to help us find the ideal dentist and situation to purchase our practice and was with us through the whole process until the sale was final and we are very happy! The amazing thing about what Jay and his Schein support team did was that they were able to get everything done in the middle of the Covid19 crisis, with every step of the way carefully planned and prepared for. Things went about as smoothly as they could go and we are very satisfied! Thank you, Jay!

It was a pleasure working with Curtis Regimbal from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions for my practice acquisition. He is a very professional and friendly consultant who has in-depth knowledge of Dental Clinics and their dynamics. He looked after our needs, preferences, and wishes at all times. Curtis also introduced us to a team of other professionals who have been pivotal in finalizing the whole process of acquisition for us. He is prompt to get back to every question/concern you have at any time. I am very glad that I worked with him and would love to work with him in future undertakings as well.

It’s hard to put into words how happy I am with the results from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions Consultant, Matthew Sutton. My practice wasn’t even officially listed. He had 4 prospective buyers and I literally had the opportunity to pick the buyer that fit my practice needs. This was at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic! He walked me through every step and went above my expectations. There is nothing else that he could have done to get a better outcome. I highly recommend him if you are thinking of selling your practice. THANK YOU MATTHEW!

We recently closed on the sale of our dental practice in Brighton, Michigan. Our transition specialist, Sara Marterella, was extremely helpful and truly a comfort to us throughout this process. We were actively interviewing potential buyers when the COVID-19 closure hit. Needless to say, this resulted in a great deal of stress. We had to adapt to the changes needed to reopen the office, which we did mid-June. Sara made contact with our potential buyers and we had three offers to consider by the middle of July. She gave us great advice on making sure the practice was viable so that our deal could go through. We had many issues to deal with but Sara was always knowledgeable and professional as we dealt with each problem that came up. Despite the three-month delay from the closure, we were able to complete the sale at the end of August. We will forever be thankful to Sara from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions for her help. Sara – thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Purchasing a dental practice can be an exciting but often overwhelming process. However, having an advisor like Dr. Paul Rang from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions to guide you along the way is priceless. He helped me expedite the lending process due to his connections with the local bank. It was an incredibly smooth and well-organized process.
Ivan Montijo, D.M.D. – Buyer
I sold my practice to a great dentist and we both were happy at the closing date; however, this would have never happened without Curtis Regimbal and his team at Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions who really work hard to find the right buyer. I have to thank especially Curtis who really did his best effort to sell my practice. I highly recommend him as top “dental offices seller” I have ever seen.

There are not enough superlatives to describe our transition experience with Snowden Brown. Her expertise, her professional demeanor, her thorough knowledge of the process, and, above all, her empathy for the fact that this was a momentous decision for my wife and me, one that involved considerable anxiety, are incomparable. Her patience, tact, and invaluable guidance resulted in a transition that was smooth and more than satisfactory to all parties. Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions is fortunate indeed to have Snowden Brown as its representative; and, so were we. We are most grateful.

Michael Apalucci was instrumental in helping put all of the information needed to evaluate the practice and then putting all the documentation together needed to market the practice with the help of the team at Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions (Henry Schein PPT). In our case, the marketing and sale was put on hold due to the arrival of Covid-19, but Michael stayed in touch and gave us updates, advice, and support on a weekly basis. Michael never gave up and, even before we received the news that we could reopen, he strategically formed a plan to market the practice again. Michael also advised us, during the pandemic, to watch webinars put together by Henry Schein PPT to advise and inform us as to the best way to reopen the practice and resume listing the practice for sale again. The journey took longer than expected but Michael never gave up on his belief that the practice was well-positioned for a sale and, with his hard work, the sale came to fruition. We will always be grateful to Michael for helping us to start on our new journey and adventures ahead of us.

It didn’t take long to realize Jay Harter was a genuine, decent individual. His understanding of the intricacies of dental practice sales was also impressive. Prior to contacting Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions (Henry Schein PPT), I tried contacting smaller brokers, thinking it be a more personal relationship. I was deeply disappointed to find out how amateur these smaller firms were. In contrast, Jay impressed me with his thoroughness. The expected one year sale period was reduced to five months as a result. I attribute this to Jay’s knowledge, marketing, and ability to “make things happen”. Because of Jay and Henry Schein PPT, my anticipated nightmare was reduced to a speedy, efficient sale of my practice. Jay’s heartfelt interest in my welfare as his client is a rare quality in our impersonal world. Jay has absolutely earned my appreciation and respect.

It is with great pleasure that we recommend Jay Harter from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions (Henry Schein PPT) to guide you through your transition. We have known Jay for nearly 15 years in his various roles with Henry Schein. In every capacity, Jay has exuded a wealth of knowledge, utilizing a competent and complete network of associates, and delivers results every time. His calm, patient demeanor is very helpful in explaining intricate details in transactions.
Having purchased 5 practices over the years, we have learned that every practice acquisition comes with its own set of challenges and no transaction is alike. The field of dentistry is changing so rapidly, it is key to choose a broker who understands successful transactions may differ based on the parties involved. We believe Jay is the best broker we’ve worked with in this capacity. Our last transaction with Jay presented several difficulties and his knowledge and professionalism helped us work through to successful completion. If you are considering a practice transition, you would do well to incorporate Henry Schein PPT into your plans.
Jayson Chalmers, D.D.S. – Buyer
I met Matthew Sutton from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions at a seminar he was giving on selling and exit strategies. Matt was very professional and did not pressure me in any aspect of selling my practice. He gave me options, and let me decide which path was right for me, even if, I chose to remain in practice. We met for about a year before the right opportunity presented itself. Ultimately, the practice sold, and the whole process went much smoother and easier then I expected. Thank you, Matt.
Gabor Hegedus, D.D.S. – Seller
Over the years having been involved with many multi-million dollar commercial transactions and sales of dental practices, Jay Harter represents the best ethics that is so dearly needed in brokerage. Be assured YOUR interests will come first, not just the sale! I take this testimonial very seriously due to my many years in commercial real estate and observing many transactions. Jay went out of his way numerous times on my behalf, a number of times very uncomfortable I’m sure, but ALWAYS respected my requests and decision process. I have known many brokers over my forty-six years of dentistry and Jay Harter from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions is hands down the best of all! I would not hesitate what-so-ever in recommending Jay for your representation.

It took 14 months and 4 widely varying offers to come up with a viable option for my dental practice sale. Then Covid-19 put a damper on the deal for 2 months! I had the most interaction with Lindsey Ingram and found her to be a great source of information and experience in guiding me to a successful closing yesterday. I have chosen to step away from dentistry permanently and have no regrets. I am left with a good retirement fund and I am free of debt. Lindsey was a Godsend to me. Selling a practice can be tricky! I really needed the experience of Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. I could not have done this alone. Who’s on your team?
Joseph Newell, D.D.S. – Seller
Lindsey Ingram and Krista Butler from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions (Henry Schein PPT) made everything as smooth and seamless as possible for me. Their recommendations and follow-ups were very well received and appreciated. Every step of the transition was thoroughly explained and they were always available to give me advice and support throughout the process. Transitioning a practice certainly isn’t easy but with the depth of experience they had, it made everything much easier than it would have been. I would definitely recommend Henry Schein PPT and will use them again in the future when I sell my next practice!

With one phone call, I was hooked and I felt an immediate and trusted connection with Geremy Haseloff from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, and his clever plan and assurance to me of selling my husband’s practice. Geremy has connections, influences, acquaintances, networks, and contacts beyond comprehension. Although Geremy possesses an engaging and authentic personality, his dedication and consistent work ethic mixed with his tender and compassionate conduct have proven to me that I made the best decision in whom I would place this unique circumstance and my husband’s greatest professional legacy. In only a few short months, Geremy had located the perfect prospect to be the perfect fit that was lucky enough to land in our perfect facility. To the final stages of the contracted sale, Geremy never wavered or rested until the deal was closed. Geremy was there to pursue the continuation of my husband’s rewarding and fulfilling experience to the next blessed provider. I thank Geremy for his undying commitment and his forever, “I’ve got your back” attitude.

I am pleased to recommend Jay Harter, from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, who I worked with to broker the sale of my practice. I tried to sell the practice working alongside a consultant who specializes in managing dental offices, but not selling them. This was attempted by listing privately through various classified ads online and through dental publications. The DIY approach only proved to be a waste of time and money. The time it took to get all the documentation prepped, get the practice photographed, listed, priced, disclosed, shown, etc. was not worth it in the end. The responses were underwhelming, and I had no real idea of the qualifications of people who did answer ads. I tried this for about 3-4 months and the constant listing and relisting approach just wasn’t working.
After working with Jay last summer on the PracticeValuation to get the business ready to list privately, I decided to engage his full-services to market and sell the practice in the winter, and this was the best decision I made. Jay was quick to get everything prepped and listed for sale. He immediately had responses from qualified buyers. For some, it came down to where they ultimately wanted to practice, but every potential buyer he brought was much more serious than anything I had encountered privately. Jay found a full price buyer within just 2 months and closed on the deal within 45 days after that. Jay was very responsive to any questions we had along the way, personally drove over an hour each way, sometimes through snowstorms in the Sierra, to show the practice to potential buyers. He walked the paperwork and financing documentation through, prepared an inventory of assets for the banks, negotiated terms, basically all of it to make the transition very easy and smooth. If I had it to do over again, I would have saved a lot of time and headache and gone straight to Jay for everything.

I just sold my office in 2019 with the help of Jay Harter and Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions (Henry Schein PPT). There were many complications from outside sources, none of which was Jay’s fault but he was persistent and stuck with me until got the job done. Jay is very conscientious and worked very hard for me. I would recommend his services and Henry Schein PPT.
Arthur Burbridge, D.D.S. – Seller
Jay Harter from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions was great to work with and did everything he could to make sure that the deal was taken care of. I would gladly work with Jay again.

I have uncovered a gem within our sundries and equipment specialist organizations. They not only deliver on keeping cost savings down, but also on the filling of online supply orders. Henry Schein has another arm of extension, consisting of practice valuations and transitions. Now that I am trailing the end of my career, I wanted a true partner to help me transition into retirement. My first advice is to start early and don’t wait until your practice is upon a slippery slope of delicate profitability and outdated equipment. I began my journey by calling Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions (Henry Schein PPT) and I immediately linked up with Ms. Donna Bamrbick as my Transition Sales Consultant. She decided that we would first begin with a practice valuation and onsite visit. She was there within 24 hours and took pictures, listed all the equipment and computerized workflow systems. I had a detail practice questionnaire to complete and return. Another Henry Schein representative also completed an onsite inspection of all equipment, service dates and recommended needed repairs or improvements. Six weeks later, I received my practice’s valuation amount along with a lengthy detail report regarding my practice profile. I was very pleased with the results and immediately listed my company with them and had Donna as my agent. My company was listed on the Henry Schein PPT website, marketing my practice with the necessary details to attract buyers. The site is awesome with a link to further investigate your practice.

Our Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions Sales Consultant, Steve Caudill, was exceptionally accessible, prompt in his responses to our questions, and an effective marketer of the practice.

Sara Marterella did a fantastic job during the course of the entire transition. Her knowledge, insight, and patience were invaluable, both before and after the merger/acquisition. I highly recommend Sara and the team at Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions for anyone seeking help for such an important decision in one’s career.
Anthony Sakorafis, D.D.S.
Bloomfield Hills, MI
Transition Sales Consultant, Steve Caudill was not only passionate and compassionate about his work, but he was also very consistent and continued throughout the process to communicate and reassure us about the communication with the prospective buyers. We had our ups and downs with the buyers in the sale of the practice, however, Steve made us feel comfortable and at ease that the process will happen, and so it did and things were handled by Steve incredibly. We could not have done it without his knowledge, experience, and perseverance. Selling a practice is not something that one should try to sell on their own.
It is highly recommended that you use the professionals that represent Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. Steve was referred to us by another dentist and we could not have been happier. He works with the buyers in the best interest of the seller but has a way of making both parties feel content and get their needs met.
Thank you, Steve!

Selling my dental practice was in my experience a very stressful, annoying, nerve-racking, journey. Words don’t exist to express my gratitude for having enlisted the help of Michael Apalucci from Henry Schein Practice Solutions as my broker. Michael’s knowledge, experience, good nature, availability, and patience helped me in every step of the complicated and frustrating process. Most importantly, Michael shielded me from all the craziness of the buyer’s constant wishes. Michael Apalucci is a true professional, he did an excellent job helping with all the steps, from paperwork to finding the proper buyer to aiding with the complicated discussions with the lenders and attorneys, etc. I highly recommend Michael’s services.
Dr. SH, D.D.S. – Seller
I would like to take this opportunity to offer a high level of recommendation for Mike Apalucci from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. Mike was a strong professional in the selling of two of my practices, in two different parts of New York (Westchester and the Bronx)! Throughout the entire process, Mike remained in very close contact with me daily, right to the final closings. Mike had a strong understanding of my needs as a seller, while still being sure to carefully guide the buyers. His boundless energy and his knowledge of the NY and dental practice market was extremely helpful in this process. I highly recommend Mike Apalucci to any D.D.S. ready to sell their practice.
R. Zaifman, D.D.S. – Seller
Working with Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, specifically Dr. Suzie Stolarz, during the purchase of our practice was a wonderful experience. Suzie turned what can somewhat be a difficult and stressful process into a breeze. She was upfront and honest, easily accessible, and an overall pleasure to work with. If the time comes to buy or sell a practice in the future, my first call will be to Suzie.

In 1988 I did a true start-up in Brownfield, Texas and over a 31 year period, I built my practice into one of the largest solo practices in the West Texas area. When it came time to look for the right replacement and a transition team that I knew would get the job done, it was an easy choice choosing the Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions (Henry Schein PPT) team. Transition Sales Consultant Geremy Haseloff is hands down the hardest working dental rep in West Texas and Dr. Tom Synder and Charlie Costa with Henry Schein’s PPT team have as much or more experience as any broker/transition team in the nation.
In the end, they found the perfect doctor for my practice matching both personalities and practice philosophies, and we closed the deal in little over 30 days…”experience meets execution”!
Michael M. Cauley, D.D.S. PA – Seller
Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions (Henry Schein PPT) and my Transition Sales Consultant, Geremy Haseloff, have been very pleasant to work with. I could not have done this without them. I appreciate the way that they didn’t try to convince me to purchase a practice that I didn’t want or need, and I received a lot of extra help from them any time I hit a roadblock in the purchasing process. It was so nice to have Geremy on-site with local knowledge of the environment and the target practice. He was always quick to respond to questions especially taking into account the time change since I was moving from out state three time zones away.
I recommend Henry Schein PPT and Geremy Haseloff to anyone who is considering purchasing a practice!
Garrett Chappell, D.D.S. – Buyer
From the moment Sara Marterella from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions walked into my office, the entire atmosphere surrounding the sale of my office changed into an irresistibly powerful force.
The process of selling my office was a difficult adventure: but Sara never wavered or revealed any profound frustration, intimidation, or irritation by the challenge. Every obstacle was met with a determination to solve any and all problems. I truly admired her professionalism.
My office transition was an extremely important closing chapter of my career. Considering all the obstacles we faced, I don’t think it would have happened without Sara’s expertise and bulldogged determination to make it happen. For that reason alone, I will be eternally grateful to Sara for her invaluable help and assistance.
I wholeheartedly endorse the services she provided for me. She is a brilliantly shining light for the Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions team.

The Professional Practice Transitions team at Henry Schein was of invaluable help in aiding in the sale of my practice. Transition Sales Consultant, Mike Apalucci, knows all the fundamentals in his craft. All through the long process, he was there to guide me. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Raf – Seller
I recently sold my dental practice with the help of my local Transition Sales Consultant, Denise Bouwhuis, from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. Denise is very professional and kept the sale of my office confidential. She made arrangements to show the practice during closed office time and I was also kept in the loop on any showings, interests, and offers for the practice. The whole process was smooth and I did not encounter any issues. If you are thinking about selling your practice, I would highly recommend Denise and the Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions team.
Greg D. Komyathy, D.D.S., F.A.G.D. – Seller
Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, specifically Kerri McCullough and Erin Montejano. Kerri was highly recommended to me when I expressed my intention to sell my dental practice to my dental practice management consultant. Kerri, along with her team have many years of experience and dental practice transitions. Their experience proved to be extremely valuable with my complicated transition.
My dental practice was one of three dental practices in a solo-group setting, where the three practices shared a common, large, 13 operatory suite in a large professional building. All three practices shared a common lease as well. Rather than sell each separate practice to a separate buyer, we made the decision to sell all three practices together to one buyer. Additionally, several of the doctors, including myself, intended to continue providing dental care to the patients under the new ownership. None of the doctors had associate’s to step up and buy the practice, so Kerri McCullough was also charged with finding the right buyer, who would retain several of the selling doctors after the transition.
It only took Kerri a very short time to find the perfect qualified buyer. Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions has the capability to market a listed practice nationwide. The buyer she found, however, had a very successful dental practice one mile away. The buyer’s successful practice had outgrown the physical space and the doctor was looking for a larger office. Our 13 operatory space fit the buyer’s needs nicely.
At the outset of this transition, it was impossible for me to foresee the complexity of it. However, the team at Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions made it happen very painlessly. Now that the transition has happened and the sale has closed, I look back and know this event could not have occurred so seamlessly had I worked with anyone else.
Jeffrey P. Hoy, D.D.S., F.A.S.D. – Seller
I would like to recognize Donna Bambrick, from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions for her guidance and facilitation in the recent sale of my practice. My transition was smooth and seamless. I am incredibly appreciative of all the hard work Donna and the rest of the team put in, it was a pleasure doing business with them.
Robert J. Dietz Jr., D.D.S. – Seller
I do not have the words to describe the service and loyalty of Henry Schein Transition Sales Consultant, Michael Apalucci, in the transaction of selling my dental practice. I recommend Mike Apalucci to anyone that is looking for selling or buying a Dental practice.
Alvaro Preciado, D.D.S. – Seller
While we had only talked to Suzie from Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions once prior to meeting her, we knew she was the right person for the job. She was able to tell from our first phone call that we were a good fit for the practice. The first time we met Suzie, our conversation flowed easily and we talked to her for 90 minutes after meeting with the practice owner. It was as if we had known each other for years. When it came to the transition, her professionalism stood out and she kept both sides on schedule for the closing. We would recommend her to anyone!
Kevin Sivaneri, D.D.S. – Seller
I had a great experience with Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions Consultant, Dr. Stolarz.

Dr. Craig Swiger – Seller, Matt Sutton – Henry Schein Transition Sales Consultant, and Dr. Reid Popple – Buyer
I wanted to take a moment to commend Matt Sutton for a job well done! Matt helped make what could have been a very stressful process, well, less stressful. He was able to put my mind at ease and guide me in the right direction with valuable industry and practice transition knowledge.
Matt provided me with several, viable buyer options since it was essential to find the right dentist (not just any dentist) to take over my patient base. Even after one buyer backed out of the transaction, Matt had me back in contact with a new buyer very quickly. His knowledge of the Atlanta market and network in Dental Transitions is very impressive. Working with a company like Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, with its vast amount of resources, made this a great experience and I would recommend this team to colleagues who may be considering transitioning their practice.

Wanda Burks, Dr. Suzie Stolarz – Henry Schein Transition Sales Consultant & James. W Burks III, D.D.S.
Words fall short in recommending Dr. Suzie Stolarz from the Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions team. Her excellent help and guidance throughout my practice transition kept me at ease and I was able to focus on my practice and my patients.
I met Suzie through our Henry Schein Rep, and instantly felt comfortable and knew I was in very capable hands. Her wit and knowledge immediately won me over. After the first few meetings, my wife quickly claimed her as a best friend, as did I. We’ve shared so many thoughts and tossed around ideas and dreams of the future. This is something that doesn’t happen often, but it did with Suzie. We never felt the need for worry, as she was knowledgeable and confident throughout the entire process. We knew she had our back!
Suzie was always available to answer endless questions, provide emotional support and give solid advice. We can’t thank her enough for finding the perfect fit and the perfect buyer. Like me, our patients and staff are also the buyer’s utmost priority. In the final closing days, she held out for my best interest and assisted with every little step. My wife and I couldn’t be happier, and we just adore her and look forward to a lifelong friendship. Thank you, Suzie!

Twelve years ago I bought my practice that was listed with Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions and had the pleasure of interacting with Sales Consultant, Donna Costa, during my transition. Of course, when it came time to make the decision to sell, I contacted Donna so the practice could again be listed with Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. The team at Henry Schein made my transition as a buyer AND then as a seller, simple and stress-free. It was great that after all these years I knew I could rely on them to help!

I would like to extend my thanks to Eileen Anderson, from the Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions team, for her guidance and facilitation in the recent sale of my solo practice. She guided me through the entire process from my initial meeting with her to the congratulatory message once the sale was finalized. Each step of the way, Eileen was knowledgeable with every facet of what I would consider being a complicated process. She was always just a phone call or text away and was immediately responsive to any question or concern I had. Selling the dental practice that I began over 33 years ago was at times quite a bit personal and Eileen was sensitive to those feelings of mine. I would have no reservation in recommending Eileen Anderson’s assistant to anyone contemplating a similar situation.
David W. Major, D.D.S. – Seller
I highly recommend the services of Ms. Eileen Anderson of Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, who recently assisted with the sale of my 35-year-old dental practice, City Center Dental Care, located in Newport News, Virginia. It is no small challenge to work out the details of a transition of this magnitude, and Eileen enabled the process to proceed more smoothly than I ever thought possible.
Prior to choosing Ms. Anderson, I evaluated 5 other companies from 4 different states – Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado and Texas – and right off the bat Ms. Anderson struck me as the most knowledgeable and personable of the six candidates. My decision to enlist her to sell the practice was validated through the knowledgeable, considerate way in which she interacted with me and with the purchasing doctors during this process. During the course of putting the agreement together, we uncovered a number of challenging circumstances, but she dealt with each one in light of her vast experience and wisdom, helping us to all determine the fairest way to proceed. We were under a bit of a time crunch to complete the deal by the end of 2018, and she kept us on schedule, making sure that we focused on the right requirements to keep us moving, and coordinating the involvement of legal assistance as necessary.
In summary, I wholeheartedly recommend Eileen Anderson of Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions for her ability to facilitate a transition. She is great at what she does, and though I am not likely to need her services in the future, if I did I would look no further.
William T. Griffin, D.D.S. – Seller
Thank you to Dr. Suzie Stolarz from the Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions team for her help in the transition of my dental practice this past year. The transition was very challenging for me, with many unexpected issues. Dr. Stolarz was very supportive and helpful during this difficult transition. I am so glad that she managed my dental practice sale.
Stephen C. Alsobrook, D.D.S. – Seller
I have no hesitation in recommending Matthew Sutton and Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. My ‘Fee for Service’ dental practice was in contract the day we listed through Henry Schein and closed within 30 days!
After interviewing several brokers, Matthew proved to be the most responsive and knowledgeable in industry specifics. My family and I were dealing with a challenging personal situation during the business transaction and Matt did everything possible to help ease the stress on us.
It was a pleasure doing business with this team.
Christopher P. North, D.M.D. – Seller
I am happy to say I have successfully sold and transitioned my dental practice of 57 years through Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. I would absolutely recommend their services and agent, Mr. Matthew Sutton, to fellow colleagues.
Listed with another local firm for 1.5 years, my practice was not generating the attention we had hoped. After meeting Matthew, we deiced to grant him the opportunity to find a suitable buyer. Matthew’s energy and positive attitude is just what we needed to refresh the listing and move towards a timely sale (within 6 months). Matthew went above and beyond to handle all our needs and made himself available on a daily basis.
My transition was very complex with several movings parts. Matthew’s background as a commercial banker positioned him above his competition, enabling him to walk buyers through the entire transition process.
Thank you for a job well done!
Fred M. Hannan SR., D.D.S. – Seller
I am extremely satisfied with the transition of my practice with Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. From my first contact with Mike Apalucci to the actual closing, the whole process was quick and seamless.
Their guidance in every step of the process was superb. I could not have been happier.
Paul Sullivan, D.M.D. – Seller
After working as a general dentist for over 28 years, I developed health issues which resulted in making the decision to seek a job outside of dentistry. I chose Henry Schein Practice Transitions when deciding to retire and sell my practice because they had great advertisements on the practices they sold. I also researched to find out that they have a great reputation and plenty of experience. Kerri McCullough was my broker and from the start I saw that she was a very hard worker. She and I saw 11 different doctors before I found the right doctors for my patients and staff. Kerri was there throughout the entire process and explained the sale carefully, in detail and with great patience. As some of you may know, selling a dental practice can be challenging, but with the help of Kerri and the West Coast team, the process was smooth and much easier. I could not have sold my practice without Henry Schein Practice Transitions. I am forever thankful for having such a knowledgeable and hardworking staff.

Having just successfully sold and transitioned my cosmetic and restorative dental practice of 40 years through Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, I would absolutely recommend their services and agent, Mr. Matthew Sutton, to colleagues.
The complete experience has been very positive and handled with the utmost professional care by Mr. Sutton and the supporting Henry Schein PPT team. Their industry knowledge and expertise is unmatched. I was kept in the loop throughout the entire process with regular status updates and on-demand agent support. Matt’s background as a commercial banker added value that I would not have received through any other firm; his ability to understand both sides of the transaction made the process smooth for all parties involved. He went beyond by helping my buyer to quickly find suitable financing that met the transaction requirements.

Selling a dental practice is not always easy. We had a particularly unusual situation and Cindy McKane-Wagester, addressed the sale of our practice from several avenues. She kept us informed of what new developments were occurring, and she answered our questions and concerns. During a particularly stressful period she maintained a calm, professional demeanor which eventually led to the sale of our office. She continued to maintain a relationship with us post sale, and was helpful in advising during the transition phase.

I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Scott R. Firestone, at Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, in selling my practice recently. His consul in all matters from the initial evaluation to the sale was of the upmost professional caliber. His vast knowledge of the transition process let me know I was in competent hands throughout the process. Dr. Scott R. Firestone was completely available to answer any questions or concerns I had at any time. He worked tirelessly to bring the sale to fruition and, is a man of unparalleled integrity, a person to have on your team in the transition of your practice. I am so very happy he was on mine.

Dr. Suzie Stolarz led me seamlessly from the initiation to the completion of an experience that could have been a disaster without the right leadership and advice. She made sense of the plethora of requirements necessary to orchestrate an organized, legal, safe, well-informed and financially attractive practice transition for buyer and seller. Her dedication, integrity, accessibility, responsiveness and professional skills were the cornerstones that turned a potentially stress-filled experience into a satisfying pivotal high-point in my career.
My 37 year old dental practice was extensively and professionally valued in November 2017 and the deal closed in April 2018 by the HSPPT team and my personal transition consultant Dr. Suzie Stolarz.
I highly recommend Dr. Suzie Stolarz and the entire HS PPT team to any dentist making one of the most important decisions of their lives.
Debbie Wallace, D.D.S. – Seller
I sold my practice in early 2018. I did so after several years of deliberation about whether it was the right thing to do, how to go about it, to do it myself or with a broker, and who my advisors should be.
I decided that using a broker was the way to go for me. Never having done this before, I felt that guidance would be useful to me, and I also felt that trying to sell it myself would be a distraction to my ongoing clinical work, as well as to my efforts to enjoy my life…for however long the process took.
I subsequently interviewed a number of brokers. Of course, they all provide glowing references, so that doesn’t mean much. I was left trusting my gut, and in the selection of Dr. Joe McManus and Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, my gut did not let me down! I felt comfortable talking to Joe, was pleased that he was local, and was pleased that he is a dentist retired from clinical practice, not a lawyer or M.B.A. I don’t doubt that brokers with those qualifications can be effective, but, my, perhaps quaint belief, is that a doctor is inherently a more ethical beast than a lawyer or a business person. I see myself as a doctor, and most emphatically NOT as a businessperson, and so this was important to me.
I was a little uneasy signing the listing agreement. Joe told me he had a candidate in mind already, and I had been warned that unscrupulous brokers will say such things, to get you to sign on the dotted line, for a long commitment, and then, the candidate mysteriously loses interest. Joe was being completely honest. Within a week or so, he introduced me to the eventual purchaser. The negotiation was long and rather contentious, and Joe always kept his cool, and worked towards getting a deal together. He was always consummately professional, clearly outlining to all parties where his contractual loyalties lie, and what could be expected of him.
Based on my experience with Joe McManus, I would use him again if I found myself with another dental practice to sell, and would encourage the reader to do so, as well. Sellers considering using Joe may feel free to contact me. My contact information can be provided by Joe.
Michael Hodish, D.M.D. – Seller
We want you to know you have a huge fan (me) in Suzie Stolarz and Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions. I was very apprehensive on selling my practice to just anyone but Suzie took control and found the perfect match for my personality and my way of dentistry.
We are very happy with the professional manner in which things were handled. We put our trust in Suzie and Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions and they came through 100%. We would highly recommend both her and her company to our friends and fellow Dentists looking to buy or sell.
Brian F. Riel, D.D.S. – Seller
I recently utilized Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions to sell my general dental practice. Scott Firestone, DDS was the broker and he helped me through the process expeditiously.

Blaine Brown recently acted as my agent in selling my practice which closed in Nov. 2017. I had thought because of the demand for practices in Boise, Idaho, and my past experience in both buying and selling, that I could locate a buyer and handle the sale on my own. After failing with the associate that had been working with me for over a year, and speaking to a dozen or so prospects with no success, I had to admit that I needed a professional. I interviewed a couple of agents but knew of Blaine from past activities in the world of dentistry. When I interviewed him it was obvious to me that Blaine and his firm, Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, were the right choice.
It was a bit of an unusual situation because of my involvement with mini implant supported dentures as well as general dentistry. I felt I would need to continue to work in the specialty area to take care of my patients since those with the skills and passion for dentures and mini implants are few and far between. Blaine was able to find a buyer that understood the value of the general practice as a separate entity, as well as the value of having me continue to work in my area of interest providing revenue to the new owner.
The macro and micro details were all well-handled resulting in a very successful sale for all involved. The future looks bright. Blaine has continued to remain in contact to assure that all was going well. I feel we have become good friends.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Scott Firestone, of Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions, regarding the sales of several Dental Practices. As the attorney for one of the parties on each of the several transactions, I can unequivocally state that Scott truly represents his clients’ interests and is often the glue that keeps the transaction moving forward to a successful conclusion and very satisfied clients. Scott is prompt to respond to communications and with his wisdom, as a prior dentist, actively attempts to work out issues between the parties in order to bring the transaction home to a conclusion that benefits his client. I could not recommend a better Broker, or company, in the Dental field.

Suzie Stolarz, a Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions (Henry Schein PPT) Consultant, helped me considerably when I was working on the close of my new practice. She was always very prompt and professional. I would use both her and Henry Schein PPT again, because I know they got the job done.
Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions was so valuable in the recent sale of my dental practice! The bottom line truth is that without the energetic and committed assistance of Blaine Brown, the sale could never have been completed. My sale was so complex and complicated, with many moving parts and players, that it needed special and creative attention. It took time, patience and seasoned leadership which Blaine provided.
I am so grateful to Blaine and his team. I wish I would have used them instead of the previous consultant who helped with my Associate, years ago. I would have saved thousands and thousands of dollars. My investment in Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions really paid off. They are my go-to team in the future!
