I enjoy spending time with my 4 daughters and chairing their school’s largest fundraiser. My favorite vacation spot is the island of Maui where I spent part of my formative years. I have recently taken up golf again and enjoy playing as often as my schedule will allow.
Christy Conway is extremely talented at her job; efficient, caring, and truly an Angel. I am disabled and sold my practice without doing any of the work. She took care of everything for me. From the day she showed the practice to closing was less than 60 days. The entire process was made so easy for me. She was able to get multiple offers that overbid to get my practice. I truly appreciate what an incredible job she did and all the personnel at Henry Schein. I highly recommend Christy and her team at Henry Schein to anyone looking to sell their dental practice. Excellent work from a truly exceptional person! I will always be thankful!”

We recently sold our 7 operatory dental practice on Kauai, Hawaii, and had the pleasure of working with Christy Conway, our transition broker, throughout the sale. After speaking with a couple other brokers, we selected Christy because of her business acumen, responsiveness, professionalism, and friendliness. With her years of experience working in the dental field, it was obvious that she understood the challenges and opportunities of selling a dental practice.
Christy is very articulate, she’s a strong negotiator, organized, and focused on getting to the finish line. From day one, she was very informative in educating us about the sale process, setting realistic expectations about the timeframe, keeping us on track with the large amounts of information and documentation requested by the buyer, and supporting us through the ups and downs that occur throughout the process, mentally and emotionally. Selling our dental practice was very personal. She was patient and supportive, yet straight forward and realistic about what to expect. She always had our best interest at heart throughout the negotiations, and she was very accessible when we needed to speak with her or schedule meetings. Never having sold a practice before, we didn’t realize how important these skills and traits are in a broker.
An added benefit to working with Henry Schein’s transition team was knowing that Christy could reach out to Henry Schein’s financial and legal experts, as well as their nationwide network of transition brokers, for information and support. Christy is also a realtor, which was extremely helpful during our discussions about selling or leasing the real estate.
We would highly recommend Christy Conway if you are looking for a transition broker. Now that our practice is sold, we are so grateful to have worked with her, and have no regrets about selling the practice or working with Christy.

About a little over a year ago I signed up for Henry Schein’s Dental Practice sales email list to see local listings in my area as they came available. Every now and then I would see the emails as I was preparing myself to make a purchase on my first dental practice. I even contacted Christy Conway, Transition Sales Consultant, last year about possibly helping me buy a practice I was at the time associating with as the owner doctor was preparing himself for retirement. Some months went by, and then one morning I saw an email for a San Diego Listing and as I read the details about the practice I reached out to Christy for more information to which she told me there is an Open House that Saturday. She sets up an appointment for me. She sent me a link to get Pre-qualified that night. I get the pre-qualifications done.
Decided that Saturday morning that I would take my wife and kids to the open house. As soon as my wife and I walked in we both fell in love with the practice. Every part of the practice was something I had always dreamed about having. A place where I could finally be comfortable providing care to people the way they deserved. I told Christy that I wanted this practice and to guide me in making it happen. The next Monday I had a meeting with the Owner Doctor and Christy. I explained why I fell in love with the practice and what it would mean to me as a practitioner to have this space. A couple hours later Christy gave me a call to let me know that the owner accepted my offer and guided me through the next steps.
She made the whole process so easy for me by guiding me to the right Lawyer, Consultant, and working with the Lender I was pre-approved with. We set a close date about 60 days from the start. Now was the time that things started to move really quickly and I mentally wasn’t even prepared for this transition. Some nerves began kicking in as the days went by and we were getting closer and closer to a close date. But Christy was there every step of the way checking in making sure I was comfortable at the pace. Had it not been for my disability insurance taking a little longer than anticipated it would have only taken just over 30 days from start to close. She and her team at Henry Schein did a great job making sure everything was organized from start to finish.
I can’t thank them enough for making this such a smooth and easy process for me. I know it’s not always like that for everyone but they sure made it seem like it’s that easy to get done!

I take great pleasure in recommending Christy Conway, (Transition Sales Consultant at Henry Schein Dental Practice Transitions) to any dentist who is seeking practice transition. Christy was the only person I considered when it came time to find a worthy dental practice to buy. This is because she was highly recommended by many colleagues I respected, who had used her services in the past. I can’t imagine trusting the many details of a practice transition to anyone else.
The most important qualities to look for in a practice consultant are character, trustworthiness, honesty, experience, service, and connections to other qualified professionals, such as attorneys, bankers, etc. Christy has an abundance of all these qualities and requirements. She was always available any time I needed her. I really valued the guidance she freely offered throughout the entire time I worked with her.
I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to work with Christy. Her wisdom and experience were invaluable.
In short, you couldn’t be in better hands. She is simply the best there is. I would be happy to visit with any professional considering her services.
Happy owner of my dream dental Practice at Bliss Dental Arts.

My name is Dr. Khuong Nguyen, Board Certified Pediatric Dentist. I have had the great pleasure of working with Christy as my dental broker in selling my practice. The previous broker I used was not successful in what I wanted. After Christy and I agreed to work together, she found multiple solid buyers within 4 days which was extremely impressive.
Throughout the whole process Christy was dedicated and gave personal attention. She had other clients but I never felt neglected. Christy made me feel I was her only client. My emails, texts, and phone calls were answered immediately. This was evident when she went on vacation and was still focused and working on the selling the practice. I didn’t have to worry about grabbing practice analysis. She has knowledge of dental software. Christy personally came to the office and got all the data she needed which made it less stressful. Meetings with buyers and their office managers were met with Christy. I didn’t have worry about this thanks to her.
Christy navigated difficult situations; dealing with lawyers, buyers, leasing agents and making the sale of the practice successful. It wasn’t an easy process. Going through this process in selling your practice, you realize it is a life changing event. Ultimately, Christy changed my life in successfully selling my practice. I am very thankful to have her represent me. If you decide to sell your practice, without a doubt I would choose Christy Conway.

Finding the right buyer for your unique practice is only the first step in a complex process of ownership transition. Christy Conway not only was able to achieve that but also did it as soon as she listed the practice. She worked tirelessly beyond the 8 to 5 hours to communicate with you and the buyer. Thank you for all your hard work in closing escrow on schedule.

Having practiced general dentistry for 39 years I have worked with many fine professionals that support or field. I recently retired and sold my dental practice utilizing Henry Schein Dental Practice Transitions. As a fellow dentist I can say it was an emotional and rather difficult process to go through for both myself and my wife who is our office manager.
The Henry Schein Team which ultimately included three transition specialists, an attorney, our accountant and layers of administrative support within the Schein network were all wonderful.
We were told from the beginning it is typically a stressful process, and they were correct. Our transition took an extended amount of time evaluating multiple full price offers and potential buyers. We were very pleased with the Teams cohesiveness and support that never waivered.
In the end our transition specialist Christy Conway found a wonderful couple to take over our practice. A female dentist and her husband to serve as the new office manager. The perfect complement to our own practice management style. Christy was always positive, punctual and insightful! She smiled at every meeting and through every phone call, and always answered her phone! I cannot say enough about her extra efforts and thoughtfulness she displayed all the way to the finish line!
A BIG THANK YOU to Christy Conway and her entire team!

Selling a dental practice is often difficult and overwhelming but Christy was with us every step of the way. We appreciated her professionalism and support throughout the process.

I retained Christy Conway with Henry Schein Practice Transitions to assist me in selling my 41-year-old dental practice. I felt very comfortable and confident working with Christy. She brought many potential buyers in to look at my practice. We had many obstacles to overcome and Christy helped and guided me through most of them. I would highly recommend Christy Conway as your Practice Broker.

My husband and I are both dentists that started looking for a dental practice at the beginning of this year. Through viewing our first practice, we met Christy Conway and what a blessing she is! She was knowledgeable, personable, honest, compassionate/empathetic and very efficient. She continuously kept us in the loop on practices that matched our very specific criteria. Her persistence allowed us the opportunity to tour our dream office that met all of our criteria. She assisted us with the seller interview process, after being selected to move forward with the purchase – she assisted us in finding the best team for due-diligence, she advocated for us to close within 60 days by holding everyone accountable and to a specific timeline. She was always available to answer any and all questions and if she did not know the answer, she always went above and beyond to reach out to her many resources to help us get the answer. Christy was an integral part in why we now are first time practice owners at our dream office and we are so appreciative of her.
