My wife and I were extremely pleased to have worked with Richard Oberbeck with Henry Schein Dental Practice Transitions during the sale of my dental practice. Rich was extremely professional and knowledgeable and demonstrated his vast experience in selling dental practices. Rich was an excellent negotiator and came up with creative ideas that neither the buyer nor seller had considered. He proved to be very successful in negotiating even with stubborn individuals. Rich always made himself available to us. He drove up to our office twice, over 5 hours each way, and was more than willing to come up more if needed or we requested. He was always hands on. The Henry Schein team had many valuable tools that we could use in drawing up contracts, form letters and and other suggestions that could be used in the actual contracting phase and transitioning phases. They have lawyers on staff that helped with drawing up documents. You can tell they are well experienced in selling dental practices and they are a well greased operating organization. We would highly recommend them and especially Richard Oberbeck. Rich has showed us time and time again that he really cares and understands what the sales and transitioning of a dental practice involves and makes things as smooth as possible for all parties. Thank you Rich!

I have been in practice for 37 years, these times are difficult as to when to hang up the drill and move into the next phase of ones life. Rich Oberbeck is kind and caring and a consummate professional. Most transitions are anything but easy, a ton of traps and pitfalls around every corner. I had the right guy in my corner. He got me to the finish line, I am very thankful. I highly recommend Rich.

I had a dental practice for 30 years and knew it was time for a transition approximately 2 years ago. I had hired a company out of Florida that charged 14k upfront for analysis and initial sales leads. Their commission was set at 7%. I worked with them for approximately 1 year and never felt comfortable with the ethics, integrity and professionalism of that company or their representatives. With that frustration, I spoke to my Schein rep and he referred me to Rich Oberbeck for transition advice. Ultimately, I developed a trust in Rich as I felt like he had my best interest central in this process. He listened carefully to my needs and desires. Rich was responsive and thoughtful in all my interactions with him. He was prompt but not pushy in his approach. He followed through on all that he committed to and was candid and honest in our communication.

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!
