I recently closed on my practice of nearly 40 years and Mike Apalucci made it a breeze. I had anticipated a 1–3-year time frame for a sale and transition but Mike had buyers lines up within weeks and a closing in about 6 months total and at almost my full asking price. He was always available to answer questions (and there were many) be it by phone, text, or email. Time of day or day of the week had very little effect on an answer. In addition, he was able to match me with a lawyer specializing in practice sales. There was actually very little that I needed to do from start to finish.
Without reservation, I wholeheartedly recommend Mike Apalucci as a practice broker and invite anyone with questions to contact me.
By the way, I’m loving retirement.

Mike Apalucci was available throughout the entire arduous process. Ultimately, the practice was sold and I am now retired, but there is no way I could have tackled this on my own. It was a relief to know that he was there to act as an intermediary when questions arose or when issues had to be smoothed over. I am grateful to have had his level-headed expertise. Thanks, Mike!

Selling a dental practice is never easy, but then throw in a global pandemic and see what obstacles that scenario brings! Due to mandatory statewide shutdowns, we were not able to show our practice to prospective buyers for many months. Even then, the uncertainty about what dentistry would be like after the pandemic was resolved was a real concern. But our broker, Mike Apalucci, persevered and finally found a perfect match for our needs – a practitioner in the next town looking to expand his patient base. Both parties were on the same wavelength from the outset but when the legal eagles got involved, that was when it looked like the transaction might not happen. Mike stepped up, informed the buyer and his attorney that the deal was taking far too long to close and was in danger of being scrapped; in ONE day we had a signed binder and weeks later a closing date. We can’t thank Mike enough for all his hard work, the great distances he traveled between his home and our office, and his total availability by phone, email, or text. Thank you Mike for all you’ve done – we could not have done it without you!

I have been wanting to be a practice owner for a long time. I told Michael Apalucci exactly what I was looking for and magically, the practice and practice owner that was a perfect fit appeared!! I cannot thank Michael for all his help in guidance in making my dream come true! He reassured me every step of the way! It was an excellent experience! Michael is most knowledgeable and very compassionate about what he does! Thank you again!!

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.

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.
Sincerely, Valerie & Robert Zeman

It is with the greatest of pleasure that I would like to take this opportunity to offer a recommendation of the highest level for Michael Apalucci of Henry Schein’s Professional Practice Transitions Team.

Michael had a great understanding of the needs of his client and a wonderful ability to listen and follow through. His study and acquired knowledge of the local dental practice market was very accurate and his interpersonal skills were excellent.
I wholeheartedly recommend Michael Apalucci and the Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions Team to any dentist seeking to sell a practice.

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.

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.

Over the past 5 years, Mike Apalucci and I worked very hard to sell/transition my practice. Persistence was the key here. Mike would say “Stay calm Dr. Tom”. He was always punctual, kept his word and had my best interests at heart. Mike is very educated and knows how to be an excellent moderator to finalize the deal. He never had a bad word to say about anyone. With all the deals Mike is working on at the same time, I never felt that I was not cared for. I would highly recommend, without reservation, Mike and the Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions organization.
Thomas Littner, D.D.S. – Seller
My Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions (Henry Schein PPT) Broker was experienced and well prepared for my transition. Mike Apalucci acted as a valuable go-between with the other advising professionals on the practice sale, and with the buyers. He brought the Schein resources to bear when there were questions neither of us could answer, including advice on contractual norms and opinions on what the landscape of the dental sales looked like in the mid-Covid environment. I would recommend Henry Schein PPT and Mike Apalucci for a practice transition and sale.
