The process of selling a practice is very straightforward if you use the services of a broker such as Guy Jaffe and you can be assured everything will be handled properly.
My only regret is that I didn`t call Earl Douglas sooner.
I was in solo practice for 30 years, deciding to work until I wanted to close the practice. Then I met Dr. Cooper. We listed my small practice. Within 2 weekends we had 16 potential buyers. Shortly after, an offer was made & then a smooth transition. Dr. Cooper did a fantastic job of marketing my practice, identifying potential buyers and helping to close the deal. I can`t thank him enough!
Well organized service, friendly and helpful staff, utmost professionalism. Once required information was in hands of ADS South, they handled all paperwork and transactions with all involved in closing the transfer of my dental practice. Thank you, Earl and the rest of ADS South, for a job well done!
I am thankful that Paul came in and patiently explained and guided us through the process. He never rushed us, always exemplified patience, and allowed ample time for everyone to feel comfortable with all aspects of the deal. Hence there are no regrets. Hands down, I would highly recommend Dr. Paul Rang to anybody hoping to transition, partner, sell, or even mediate a dental practice deal.
It was incredibly valuable and comforting dealing with Dr. Cooper. He made the process smooth & seamless. Although he was officially the seller`s representative, I never felt like he wasn`t on my side & willing to help me in any way during and after the sale. In this day and age of big-box businesses, having the personal attention of "the boss" is rare and made a huge difference.
Western Practice Sales made our transition as smooth as possible. Ed Cahill was a step ahead everybody. I would not want to do his job, yet he does it with such finesse. I would definitely want Ed on my team next time around
I was recommended to Phil Cooper by a very close friend who had numerous dealings with Phil. I cannot say enough about the professional way my practice sale was handled. Phil was with me every step of the way. I was more than satisfied with the entire process & in dealing with Phil & his staff. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for help in buying or selling a practice.
I appreciate honest win-win contracts.
I cannot say enough about Dr. Giroux & esp. the 2 fantastic ladies in
the Yuba City office. They are all very knowledgeable, very professional and very capable. There are other dental brokers out there, but in my opinion, there are none better
than the WPS team! Would I use them again if the situation warranted? Absolutely & without hesitation!
WPS did a superb job. We don`t think this transition would have happened w/out Tim; it`s that simple. There were definitely some rough patches, but thankfully, Tim managed to keep everything on track. All of you did a great job, keeping everyone completely informed & updated all through the transition & made the whole procedure easy as possible for all of us. Thank you so much for all your help!
From the beginning to end, it was organized and a well planned process. Paul`s forms and his familiary with all the legal jargon was helpful all along the way... I can`t say enough about Paul Rang. He is a first class guy and knows his business.
I think you have a service that dentistry desperately needs. It meant a great deal to David and me to know that both our interests were being looked out for. It turned what I thought would be a nightmare into a gratifying and rewarding experience.
Earl exceeded my expectations and gave me excellent service. His knowledge of the dental field is invaluable. I trust his opinion and would use ADS again.
I feel extremely fortunate to have chosen Fred Heppner to help me sell my practice. I enjoyed Fred’s straight forward demeanor and his ability to simplify for me what would have been an overly complex endeavor if I had settled on other firms that I had interviewed. Fred was always available to answer my many queries and give me direction. I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome!
Your team has the best attitude, answers and assistance during the transition & close of my practice sale.
Fred Heppner gave me exceptional advice and and help in quickly selling my practice. With integrity and clarity, the process was really seamless. Everything that was promised was delivered in a timely manner. There were no hidden problems and all situations were covered. Would I have Fred handle another sale/purchase event, the answer is definitely YES.
After 41 years in private practice I decided to retire. I called Phil Cooper to help me with the sale of the practice. It was the best decision that I could have made. Phil`s knowledge and experience made a complicated process seem simple. I highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a dental practice.
I appreciate your dedication in accomplishing sale of my practice. I am very satisfied with your service, and definitely recommend your service to my friend or affiliate.
Paul was (is) great! I don`t think the transition could have gone any better. Thank you Paul and ADS.
Dr. Cooper helped me with the sale of my practice. From day one, he was helpful in organizing my thoughts about retirement, advising me about practice valuation, guiding me through the sales process, helping recruit potential buyers, dealing with legal issues, and ultimately going to settlement. Everything was handled professionally and expeditiously.
Dr. Cooper evaluated my practice and gave me a thorough understanding of its worth and then proceeded to market my practice. Within days, I several qualified buyers looked at my practice. Within a month, I had a buyer to buy both my practice & office building. The sale proceeded quickly & very smoothly. It seemed that all my wife & I had to do was show up at the closing & it was completed.
COMPETENCE. PROFESSIONALISM. ENCOURAGEMENT.
ADS [Florida] provided all of these ingredients and more for a seamless practice transition.
Dr. Paul Rang`s attention to detail, his business plan for selling the practice and professional demeanor were all superb. Every aspect of the sale went flawlessly (as planned). I would, without reservation, use ADS and Paul Rang for another transaction.
It is very wise to have someone working for you who is an expert in his field. The sale of a practice is a lot more complicated process than you think. All of Guy`s expertise and contacts really made this an easy experience.
I have dealt with many transition brokers. All I can say is not all transition brokers are made the same. Paul was very professional. One thing I have learned throughout this process is that it should be very detail oriented and customized to your needs. I will recommend Paul to any of my friends and colleagues looking to sell or purchase a practice.
Things are going great. Thank you so much for your involvement in the buy in. We couldn’t have asked for more. You made the whole process painless.
I want to personally thank you Chris for all that you have done to help make this transition possible and for taking all my calls. I am excited about tomorrow and can`t wait to start my new journey, thank you!
Your services help make "dreams come true." Your guidance and level-headedness kept me on course during a very turbulent time of my life. It`s not an easy task finding a dental practice, but you made it so much easier with all that you did.
Greg did an excellent job leading me through a highly complicated process and ultimately securing the deal on our terms. It would not have happened without his help.
Generally very good. Recommended good counsel for myself. Had the information ready. Was reassuring when things got a little rough. Greg has a good local reputation which he lived up to and made the transition go smoothly.
Felt ADS [Florida] larger, more exposure than some others. [Greg] had handled other practices I knew about and ADS [Florida] had dealt with other practice well.
Dr. Rang walked me through the entire process. Everything from finding the practice to funding to attorneys and CPAs to work with. I could not have done this whole process by myself.
Thanks again for your excellent service. I am very happy with the results of this sale and shall advise all of my `old` dentist friends to use your services when they decide to retire.
I was very happy and satisfied with [my] sale and transition.
Anyone going through a practice transition of any sort NEEDS to seek out Dr. Cooper and American Practice Consultants. His knowledge and insight is outstanding!! He will help you through every aspect of the transition and will help steer you in the right course to help you reach your professional and personal goals. I would HIGHLY recommend his services to anyone.
...it was not our first transaction but rather, our tenth location developed over many years. I must say that the knowledge and professionalism you exhibited in first bringing the opportunity to my attention, counseling me as the project progressed and finally closing the transaction under very challenging circumstances brought home to me the value of working with experienced professionals
Thank you for your good wishes for my new "home" in Exton. I appreciate all you did to help this transaction go as smoothly as possible.
Dr. Cooper was very professional and skillful in galvanizing, or "amalgamating" the buyer and the seller, and their respective attorneys. Not an easy task. After the papers were signed and the money crossed the table we all left with good feelings and cordial relations. I would unhesitatingly recommend Dr. Cooper to represent any future sellers or buyers for dental practices.
There are really not enough ways to thank you for working so hard to get Harold and I through this process. You were honest with me from the first day and I would not hesitate to pass your name on to any of the young dentists that are out looking for practices.
It was a thorough and wonderful experience working with you in this transition. You were always there to answer all the questions and your help through the process is much appreciated. Thanks.
Established a fair value, produced several potential buyers, evaluated each potential buyer accurately. When I was injured and could not return to my practice, Greg (Auerbach) got the job done. Greg was there at a pivotal point with great guidance and effectiveness.
Paul Rang is knowledgeable and efficient. We enjoyed working with him. He made the transition smooth and with no real problems.
(Stuart) provided invaluable assistance in locating a well qualified buyer for my practice. The whole process went smoothly and the transition was unbelievably seemless. His knowledge and expertise made the process work.
Thank you so much for your consulting services during the last couple of months. Your guidance, advice, and professionalism proved invaluable to my first practice acquisition. I could not have done it with you! Thanks again!
I recently chose Lovelace and Associates as my agent for selling my 35 year old dental practice. They were very professional, courteous, finished their assignments ahead of time, were very attentive to details and were always available for questions. They cared about doing their best, not only for me, but for the buyer.
I would definitely recommend working with ADS Florida whether you are buying or selling a practice.
We would like to thank you for helping us in the sale of our practice. You were so helpful in finding the right people who were interested. We were extremely pleased with the professional way you handled the transaction. You were there for us all the way.
Greg Auerbach made a very complicated process understandable - always ready to answer any questions or concerns. I truly felt he was my advocate and made the whole experience `pain free` (important in business as well as dentistry). Thank you Greg!
When I first decided to sell my dental practice, I was frightened, getting into dentistry is one thing, getting out is another thing entirely. ADS South made me feel at ease and gave me confidence. The appraisal and sale was handled with prompt and effective actions, with satisfaction to both the buyer and the seller.
Have you ever put off retiring because you were afraid that you couldn`t live the lifestyle you wanted? I was. Earl Douglas presented a plan that allowed me to "have my cake and eat it too!"
The only positive experience was provided through Shannon when a question needed to be answered or legal advice needed to be dispensed.
We do look froward to moving in and starting a new chapter for our Practice.
I felt the valuation process took the individuality of the practice in to consideration. It was also noteworthy that the buyer had talked with other brokers and feld that Greg was more trustworthy and fair to him as a purchaser. I believe the best commentary I could offer is that if given the opportunity again, I wouldn`t hesitate to use ADS [Florida]. Thanks for a great experience.
All the people whom you recommended and with whom I had to deal (Howard, Ray, and Bill) are first class. I am very excited about my new practice and looking forward to my first day.
With great pleasure and satisfaction I always wanted to describe my amazing transition experience w/ Dr. Giroux. He is a truly very knowledgeable professional. His team professionals made me feel very special everytime I call to ask any question.
ADS South has never steered me wrong. I have now dealt with ADS South on two occasions, the purchase of a practice and most recently the addition of an associate. Both situations were handled very well and with utmost professionalism.
My practice transition went just the way I wanted it to. Phil`s considerable experience and attention to every detail took what could have been a stressful experience off my shoulders. His prompt response to my many e-mails and phone calls proved that my practice was of personal importance to him, and not just a number.
Thank you for all the work that you and your office has done. Very professional and appreciate for being on top of things. Thank you again.
Your service was great. Neither dentist involved in our transition wanted to deal with many details. Your team guided us through the process dealing with all rough spots quickly an in a professional manner so that we were both happy and still are. Thanks.
Working with Lovelace and Associates has been phenomenal. Gretchen Lovelace and her staff have
been quite instrumental in the growth and development of my office. She provides guidance and
structure that has helped the office become more organized and thus, more productive. I would highly
recommend her office to anyone.
In dental practice transitions, you have to find someone you can trust; someone who understands the dental industry and knows what they’re doing, otherwise big mistakes can be made. You need someone who will take away the enormous hassle of trying to find the right qualified buyer. Fred Heppner helped me sell my practice, and I know it couldn’t have been done correctly without his expertise.
I have worked with Phil for almost 15 years. He orchestrated the sale of my unique hard to market practice, then was instrumental in transforming an entrepreneurial idea into a successful business model. Phil is wired into the dental community with his many contacts. His business judgment & vision have always been "spot on". I would not make any career related decision without consulting him.
My experience with Gretchen Lovelace and Associates was of great value to me. I was immediately impressed with Gretchen`s knowledge of the exact value of a dental practice, her ability to do her job in a logical order, and was the best I have ever encountered at explaining everything she was going to do,
why she was doing it and then doing it timely and professionally.
ADS South delivered in all aspects of transaction - retirement at 49.
I think Earl`s system is very fair to both the owner and the associate. I feel very comfortable starting an associate in my new office.
Steve is fair and honest with both seller and buyer. It is a real pleasure to do business with Steve
We knew Greg and he was very reputable. The overall process was very smooth.
Randy’s guidance from finding an associateship to eventual delayed sale of my practice and building was invaluable. Her advice in technical aspects of the sale, dealing with staff and the psychological aspects of the deal was constantly reassuring. Randy’s intuitive judgment in finding such a good match was the biggest factor in a rewarding experience. I will remember the entire process fondly.
I worked with several brokers. Dr. Cooper is the best of all. He did his best to help me reach my goal. He answered my calls & emails. He knows every step of practice transition & gives proper advise. I was very happy working with him. I have no hesitation to recommend Dr. Copper to doctors who are looking for help to purchase a dental practice. Dr. Cooper is the one who you truly can trust.
Thank you all for everything. You did a great job.
Kevin, Ryan & Jan,
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 for the overall expertise!
Greg was helpful in facilitating the transaction.
We`ve had the good fortune of working with Phil Cooper on 2 occasions, as buyers in 1992 and recently as sellers. Phil`s professionalism served our needs to make the transitions happen. We would recommend Phil & American Practice Consultants to anyone looking to buy or sell a dental practice. Thank you Phil for making everyone`s dreams become a reality.
I can`t begin to tell you what a pleasant experience selling my practice with your help has been. As you are well aware, giving up a part of your life which you thoroughly loved, has not been easy. But at the same time, having all details covered by you made it a wonderful experience for me.
Paul Rang was amazing - reassuring and calming when stressful times happened, always very professional and knowledgeable. He spent a lot of time with me on the phone getting things organized.
The sale went very smoothly due to Guy Jaffe`s efforts. He was always quick to answer any questions my wife and I had. He stayed in close contact with us, letting us know how things were progressing.
Dr. Cooper completely understands the specific requirements of the buyer, finds the perfect match & sees the transaction to the finish. I have been completely satisfied with my practice in terms of patient pool, location, price paid, & staff. I admire his frank assessment of both the positives & the negatives - all of which have been true. I would strongly recommend Dr. Cooper to any dentist.
I would not go anywhere else, nor trust anyone else...They look out for you, the person behind the transactions not the transaction itself first...effortlessly and efficiently they get you to where you want to be without all the stress and worries that come with transitioning between parties. You know you are in the right hands the moment you speak with these extremely knowledgable people!
I am very thankful for the help in selling my dental practice. There is a great deal of detail & paperwork & it was very helpful to have Ed Cahill guide me through the process. I had a large number of candidates to interview & was fortunate to have Ed arrange all the interviews & be present w/ me. I can definitely recommend Western Practice Sales/JMCA for assistance in selling a dental practice.
Stuart Auerbach was an absolute gentleman and professional. He facilitated a smooth transition for both the seller and myself. I would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone looking to buy or sell a practice!
Coming out of dental school, I was green to the business side of dentistry. I needed someone I could trust with a proven track record of successful practice transitions. Kind, fair, and knowledgeable for both the seller and myself. ADS Lovelace and Associates made the transition smooth.
All I had to do was make it known I was looking to purchase a practice. This practice matched my needs exactly - left handed operatories, rural setting, at a price in my range. Also, it was an existing practice that allowed me to go in the first week and be busy!
Thanks all so much for the diligence. Mark my responce to your small survey as defitely, very satisfied and already referring a friend for practice sale.
Thank you for your time and energy that made possible the merger of Dr. Cheramie`s dental practice into Louisiana Dental Center`s Family. The evaluation of both of our practices, including the analysis of their compatibility, was extremely accurate, and we are both enjoying successes because of your foresight.
Jon Noble and Shannon were right on top of everything and kept us informed regularly with what was transpiring. They were very proactive in their approach to sell our office to the right buyer. Our needs were respected and they worked around the time frame we needed them. We were very appreciative for all they did to get our practice sold in a timely manner.
What stands out is the professionalism. Once we agreed on a price, I was never pressured to lower it even when activity was slow. Phil LoGrippo is a true gentleman and showed great knowledge of the process. He was unflappable even at difficult points of the process.
Excellent practice analysis, clear, concise and made all the difference. Experience was painless. In 10 days I made an offer, got lending and closed!! Must be a record.
Sale was handled professionally with excellent communication.
I thought everything went so smooth and so easy, just like you made the whole process in the past year. Betty and I are very appreciative of all you did in making this happen. We could not have been more pleased.
Greg Auerbach was very professional, personable and gave good advice regarding the sale of the practice. His experience and insight helped `close the deal` with the right dentist.
A great overall experience. Thanks for a very smooth transition.
Practice transitions are complex, stressful, and time consuming. Additionally, there are the intangibles; the emotional ties and egos of the participating parties. ADS Lovelace & Associates demonstrated the knowledge, fairness, and sensitivity that helped transcend these obstacles.
ADS Florida and Dr. Paul Rang provided me an excellent experience in purchasing a practice. All practice information and documents were provided in a timely manner. The closing was seamless and Dr. Rang was there the entire journey to make everything become a smooth practice transition.
Dr. Cooper demonstrated extraordinary competence in his endeavor to find a purchaser for my practice. He found
qualified buyers, & was persistently optimistic when the initial efforts didn`t result in a sale. It was the right buyer in the end; no bickering over pricing. The transition went smoothly. I wouldn`t hesitate to list with Phil. He`s got the right stuff for his chosen profession.
Thank you for making my practice sale and transition go so smoothly. Your advice and professionalism was clear and very appreciated. From practice valuation through negotiations, closing documents, employment agreement and financing, your legal help has been right on. It`s great to stay in dentistry part-time and not have the day to day responsibilities of a practice. Thanks for a job well done!
Overall experience is very good. Paul was very professional and fair during the whole process, always one phone call away and very knowledgeable with the process.
I have the highest of praise for the professional handling of my practice sale as well as the sale of my professional building through Dr. Paul Rang. He was there for any questions that I had, helped me understand the values and pitfalls, guided me through the technical paperwork. I could go on and on. He was great.
I would have no hesitation to refer anyone wanting to sell their practice to Guy Jaffe. Although the sale of my practice went on for almost a year, Guy made it very easy on me. He was able to do all the things I could not do and made sure everything was done correctly.
I would like to thank you again for matching my desire to sell my practice with a great buyer! He is an extremely competent individual. My former patients have accepted him immediately. It is very gratifying to see him continuing to provide the personalized care that is the hallmark of the practice. I don`t think I could have found a more compatible person without your help.
I sold my solo practice through American Practice Consultants, and Dr. Cooper was superb. There is no question that the sale would not have happened were it not for his involvement. I always felt like I was his top priority. Dr. Cooper was professional, knowledgeable, knew all the right people, and had a calm demeanor that kept things focused throughout.
The transition has been very smooth and very satisfactory.
Thank you for helping me sell the Practice!
Thinks are going much smoother than I feared. Buyer is great, patients embracing her, Minimal negatives!
While I don`t desire to go through this again real soon, I will be sure to use your services again when that time comes!
This deal would never have been done without you guys. Lisa, I can`t say enough about your professionalism, expetise and desire to go the extra mile. Many thanks!
I wish to thank you very much for the great job you did on the evaluation of my office. Your thorough evaluation convinced Josh that the office had a great value and that becoming a partner was a good idea. We finally closed on the sale last week and I am very happy that it went so smoothly.
Gretchen and Preston did a fantastic job with the sale of my practice. They know the business inside and out and found the right buyer. Their integrity and attention to detail made the process very positive for me and I recommend them highly.
We did not have a million dollar practice, but we sure had a million-dollar broker!
I am enjoying my retirement. . . thank you for facilitating the transition.
It was easy to work with you and your regular calls made sure that the transition process is going smoothly. We first looked at the office around mid-December and even with the holidays we were able to close the deal with in two months. All of you folks at WPS were helpful and instrumental in helping close the deal expeditiously.
DBS went above and beyond what I expected during the sale of my late husband’s practice. His “dream practice” offered comprehensive treatment and I cannot thank Randy and the DBS team enough for their patience and time devoted working with me to find the right successor. They came highly recommended by colleagues. Thank you Randy and the rest of the DBS team!
Thank you so much for helping me with my transition. We talked about a timeline, an appraised price for my practice, and my desire for a quality buyer who would care for my patients in a professional manner. All these goals were met, and all was accomplished with minimal stress for me and every step was conducted in a professional manner. Thank you!
It was a pleasure working with Phil during my practice purchase. He made the whole process seamless, especially considering the less than ideal circumstances with the previous owner`s sudden death.
I feel that the sale of my practice was handled professionally and expeditiously. I would heartily recommend Jon Noble to others who would be interested in selling their office. He represented our interests well and kept us in continuous communication regarding the status of the sale.
I contacted Stuart during the summer of 2010 to begin an early process of looking for a specific practice... Stuart was fantastic with locating the practice, educating me about it, and assisting me with the transition prior to and after closing. I could not have done this without him and he is the only dental transition specialist I would consult in the future. I cannot say enough good things.
Dr. Cooper and American Practice Consultants were very professional, thorough and highly ethical in offering invaluable advice in selling my dental practice. They helped with all necessary documents and made the transition seamless. I am grateful for his services and have recommended his services to many of my colleagues.
Ed Cahill and his associates were a class act during the purchase of my practice. I would feel comfortable recommending them to any colleague looking to buy or sell a practice.
One will not find a service with more integrity and professionalism. Furthermore, the promptness and clarity of communications are unmatchable. We highly recommend their services!
Fred Heppner did a tremendous job negotiating, organizing, and finalizing the recent sale of my dental practice. His pleasant and confident demeanor, great knowledge and organizational skills kept the sales process moving forward. The sale closed as scheduled and I couldn`t be more pleased with the results. I can highly recommend Fred to anyone contemplating a dental practice transition.
I have engaged Phil`s services for the sale of 1 office & the purchase of 2 others. Phil is extremely honest, knowledgeable, informed, organized and patient in all aspects of practice transition. Mention his name to his peers in the industry and he comes highly recommended. Phil Cooper should be your first and only choice when deciding to make one of the biggest decisions of your career.
ADS was fantastic! Dr. Paul Rang personally handled every detail of the transition. He was always professional, on task and pleasant. I would work with Paul again anytime and highly recommend his services to anyone buying or selling a practice!
I would like to express my appreciation and admiration for the exceptional degree of service demonstrated by you and your ADS South staff. Your experience and careful planning were clear, as the arrangements unfolded. In fact, the closing seemed more like just a few friends relaxing and talking!
John, Thanks for your professional help in placing a value on my 30+ years of practice in my San Rafael Practice.
I appreciate your time and effort. I had no idea how long the process would take but am glad that we started when we did.
I would recommend Steve and ADS-Professional Management to anyone. He is the BEST.
The sale would not have been possible without ADS South.
Phil was on top of everything, always, never missed a detail of the process. Well done, Phil! With the situation I was facing, ADS Florida understood my situation and did everything possible to secure the sale of my practice.
It`s with pleasure that I offer these words and comments in regards to Gretchen`s expertise and professionalism in the buying and selling of dental practices.
Dr. Melanie Fowler & I used her services to consolidate my practice into hers and it was done with a great deal of expediency and quality service.
Earl was so laid back, he made me relax and feel very comfortable talking to him. I appreciate his honesty. He said "you can`t get to second base with your foot on first." Go out there and do it!
Thank you so much for your professional, honest and friendly help in the sale and transition of my dental practice. I felt like I had my best friend advising me. You are the greatest.
ADS and Paul Rang did a superb job of understanding what my wishes were in transitioning from my lifetime work to retirement. Paul found "just the right person for my practice". Paul was patient, answering all questions, with patience and thoughtfulness. ADS has all the systems in place to make a difficult transition seamless and smooth.
Phil has helped me in a practice transition & purchase of 2 additional practices. He is extremely complete & consistant with his practice valuations, & has a great reputation with the banks. Phil is also a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the entire transition process, whether it be a buy in, or total sale. I highly recommend his services if you are looking to buy or sell a dental practice.
Dr. Douglas was my cheerleader and mentor. He had both parties` interests at heart.
The transition of this practice would not have occurred without the help of both Lisa and Keith. It was a pleasure having them work on this deal.
I am confident this was a good decision & I will have a bright future for me & my family. The practice is located near a scenic road that I have been my riding my motorcycle almost every weekend, so the setup couldnt be better. Nothing like a good ride to enjoy after a good day at work! I would like to thank everyone for your professional advise & looking forward to working together in the future.
Thanks for your professional help and advice. I have been very impressed with your attention to detail and knowledge of things I never thought about. I am excited about this transition.
I had been in practice about 43 years and decided just to close my office and walk away. Then I called Lovelace and Associates and within 2 months I sold my practice to another established dentist. They did a professional job and all I had to do was sign the papers. Calling them was the best decision I could have made.
Phil brought more potential buyers than I expected in a short period of time. He gave me good advice and handled the transition in a very professional, expeditious fashion, fair to both me and the buyer. The end result was a happy seller and happy buyer, who by the way, continues to prosper in the practice. I strongly recommend Phil to any dentist who is either selling or buying a practice.
It was professionally handled, the documents were first class. The process was mostly pain free. I would recommend them without any reservation.
Tim, It was a pleasure to work with you as well. I really appreciate your advice and cool head during a very large deal. It is easy to have emotions take over and you were always there for support. A difficult job at times, I am sure! Thank you so much.
Greg sold the practice very quickly and for a good price. He is very professional and patient. The process is laid out well and is easy.
We have worked with Kevin for over 10 years. Before that, we worked with other "experts" who made it virtually impossible for us to get anything accomplished. After we started working with Kevin, everything became much easier. He has helped us with several transactions. When it comes to practice transitions, Shea Practice Transitions` expertise, knowledge and personal service are unsurpassed.
Thanks for your help, patience and time with the transition and past practice opportunities. Thanks for the flowers.
Dr. Paul Rang always was available for us, even after regular working hours. He had answers for every question or doubt that we had. Always very professional. The best. Our experience can be summed up in one word: Excellent!
Over the years Radman, White has given me invaluable advice on transition issues for my practice. They are not just the gurus in this field, but are always available to help at a moment’s notice. I recommend that every endodontic practice place them at the top of their list of trusted advisors.
Earl found the perfect practice for me only five minutes from home which allows me to balance my work and my family life.
The process was very low stress and Greg was extremely helpful through every step of the way. Greg was amazing and was pivitol in my ultimate decision to purchase the practice.
I have had several opportunities to work with Dr. Philip Cooper, the most recent being the sale of my dental practice. Dr. Cooper is very knowledgable and conscientious. I would highly recommend Dr. Cooper for any dental practice transition you may have.
I was very pleased with the professionalism and expertise that ADS brought to my practice purchase. Though Paul Rang of ADS was representing the seller, as the buyer I found that his interests were to create an equitable transition for both parties. I would strongly recommend him and your group to anyone seeking to buy or sell a practice.
Definitely recommend Greg Auerbach and ADS Florida to handle the selling of your dental practice!
Dear Sarah, Thank you for your hard work and personal interest you took in meeting our goals in finding the right buyer for my practice. Working with The DBS Companies was the best thing I did for me, my staff, and my patients. DBS guided us through the entire process You and the team impressed us with the attention to detail from introduction to closing, highly professional!
The sale of my practice happened so fast my head is still turning.
As a younger dentist, I was intimidated with the thought of buying a practice. My experience with Dr. Cooper and American Practice Consultants was outstanding. Dr. Cooper was an excellent resource and patient with me as a buyer. His approach with putting the right sellers and buyers together helped me in finding the best opportunity. I would not hesitate to recommend a colleague to Dr. Cooper.
Earl listened carefully to our individual needs and tailored a unique contract for our situation . . . he truly wants to make both parties happy.
Thank you so much for your efforts in the smooth transition in the sale of my ortho practice. Your commitment was beyond my expectations. The resources that you have available, are, simply, not readily found elsewhere, nor are your complete understanding of the many complicated issues to be confronted by Buyer & Seller.
I wanted to send a note of thanks for all the help you`ve given me over the years. During that time you have assisted me with some very complicated negotiations, including both the purchase of a practice and the sale of my practice. You have been exceptionally honest, forthright and capable in handling the issues and details. With you I have had two extremely successful transitions. Thanks again.
I was impressed with the entire process of our practice transition, especially since we already had two other brokerage firms with no success or activity. Your representative was professional in all phases. The entire process went very smoothly. It totally exceeded our expectations.
Thanks again for the great practice you made happen for me. I cannot tell you how absolutely perfect this place is for me. Best staff in the world, the one I inherited, and no one has left, best location in the world for me and my life and the best of the best of everything else.
I had a good experience with Dr. Phil Cooper and American Practice Consultants. I was able to transition my practice to a young dentist who was a perfect replacement for me.
All aspects of the deal were well covered and the documentation was absolutely outstanding. Dr. Douglas was a great help in all phases of the dealings and both myself and the seller were extremely leased with our decision to use ADS South`s services.
We opened the office yesterday and we received a very nice flower on behalf of you.
Thanks again for everything and with the best wishes for you in the New Year.
I have known Phil for several years now and he has lectured to my residents at Episcopal Hospital. I have always found him to be honest, very knowledgeable, and willing to discuss any issues that might arise with regard to transitioning. The fact that he is a dentist with an MBA allows him to be able to relate better to our circumstances. He certainly has my support.
The entire sales process was outstanding. Dr. Rang matched a buyer with the perfect personality, ethics and skills to seamlessly mesh with my existing patients and staff.
Phil`s experience and sense of fair play ensures both parties feel the "right thing" is being done. He has an ability to see the road ahead, and steer the negotiations properly. He is a true expert in these matters. Phil provides so much in his services, but perhaps the biggest thing is peace of mind. I recommend him highly.
Fred Heppner was a true asset in the sale of my practice. I depended a lot on his knowledge of management and business to make my transition perfect. I was completely satisfied with the negotiations of my practice sale. I can confidently recommend Fred Heppner for his accessibility and expertise in the business of dental transitions. He has a pleasant demeanor and is very approachable.
"Jim Kasper Associates was a guiding light during my simultaneous practice transition (selling in Long Island and purchasing in New England). Without the expertise of Jason and the the team at JKA, along with their personal touch, the experience would have been much more difficult. I recommend Jason and Kasper Associates without any hesitation.
Earl was very helpful, very knowledgeable, and fair minded in regard to the wishes and needs of both buyer and seller. I believe our transition was expedient and thorough and I hate to think what would have happened if we had not had him guiding us through this.
The whole process was very smooth. Both Dr. Paul Rang and Greg Auerbach have been very helpful and professional. This was such a 180 degree turn around experience from a previous broker I worked with at (name removed)! I would recommend [ADS Florida, LLC] to any of my dental friends considering purchasing a practice.
Without your services, this transition would have been very difficult. I appreciate all your help.
Fred Heppner made all of the difference in the sale of my practice. I quickly came to realize that the hallmark of Fred’s practice is his honesty, integrity, and attention to detail. He knew the right questions to ask me, and answers to the questions I had for him. I would heartily recommend him to anyone needing to sell their dental practice. I am very glad that I made the decision to call him.
Dr. Earl Douglas was always accessible to answer my questions and to provide honest answers. He and the ADS staff are the best practice brokers that I have ever dealt with. I recommend them highly.
I had a great experience buying a practice through Western Practice Sales. Their service level was unparalleled; they were responsive, respectful, and extremely helpful.
I can`t thank you enough for helping me through one of the most important (and interesting) decisions in my life! Your advice and support were invaluable. Thanks for being there when things got tough, for being the muscle when difficult things needed to be said, and for cracking jokes when things got tense. I can`t imagine having gotten through this experience without you. You`re the best!
ADS South served as a good mediator between buyer and seller, trying to meet the needs and wants of each while maintaining a cordial relationship between both parties. This is very important in a transaction in which buyer and seller will need to work closely together in the future for the overall good of the involved practice and its patients.
Earl and Elaine were great! From the first day that I called for information, the response was quick and courteous. My new practice is just what I was looking for. I would gladly refer any of my colleagues to ADS South at any time.
Paul was terrific - professional and approachable, helpful, knowledgable - felt comfortable trusting ADS with all the details in a process that could have been a nightmare with the emotional element thrown in and it wasn`t! Thanks, will definitely recommend your services!
It was really great working with you and I would not hesitate to recommend you to other colleagues or to work with you again in the future if I move back to the area and am looking to purchase a practice.
Guy was able to gather the necessary information from me to allow us to place a reasonable value on the practice. He was then able to locate a prospective buyer and walk us through the process, transitioning the practice from me to Dr. Boscia.
Not only were the `before the sale of practice` details taken care of completely, but also questions gladly answered after sale was completed.
I never realized how much work goes into selling and buying practices until [Lovelace and Associates] did this for me.
Gretchen was most diligent in taking care of the smallest details. They are most outstanding people that
I highly recommend from my own personal experience.
I highly recommend Dr. Phil Cooper to any dentist who is interested in buying or selling a practice. This process is not easy, even intimidating at times. He walked me through the process, had the right prospective buyers, the right attorney. It was important to sell to a qualified buyer who could "jump in" & provide the level of care that I hoped my patients would receive.
Your expertise is deeply appreciated. Working with you has been a pleasure.
Every effort was made to individually guide me through the process of buying a practice. I received the highest degree of professionalism and would recommend your consultation services to another dentist without hesitation.
Being able to trust that a client is in good hands is critical and Randy delivers. Selling a dental practice is complicated and having someone with her knowledge and experience reduces the stress. She is a strong advocate able to effectively negotiate the challenges, at the same time she is a fair and caring person. Working with her will far exceed your expectations.
Dr. Douglas made it possible for me to buy a dental practice that I had spent two months trying to arrange on my own. The process is infinitely more complicated than I imagined, financing is incredibly difficult, and there are many more details and subtle legalities than I could have handled alone.
Thanks to everyone for the lovely flowers. It was very thoughtful and much appreciated. I enjoyed my relationship with your organization during the sale of my practice and surgery center to the new owner.
Superb! The entire process was smooth and well-directed. Paul did an outstanding job and deserves full credit. Well done!!
Upon completion of four transactions with you and your staff (two sales and two purchases), I knew I needed to ask only one question: Where do I sign?
I was very pleased and satisfied with Jon Noble`s professional services in selling my dental practice. He was prompt in responding to my concerns and smoothly guided me through the sale process.
It was a pleasure to work with you and Keith. The process of selling the practice was extremely professional and seamless... the thoroughness in your approach, by not only having me fill out a lengthy survey, your trip personally to Rancho Mirage to see the practice first hand and your availability to my questions was extremely appreciated. I can’t say enough accolades about your team.
We thank you for all your help selling the practice. Your persistance helped make all the pieces come together.
Dr. Stuart Auerbach did an outstanding job during the negotiations and the closing. The documents were perfect and the process went verywell. Stuart is an excellent representative for your firm.
Working with Dr. Houlihan gives my clients the confidence they need to proceed with purchasing a practice. Having a licensed practicing dentist on hand who understands both the business and clinical aspects of running a dental practice is truly priceless. Dr. Houlihan is my first choice."
Steve sold a very large practice FOR me and then later sold a practice TO me. I found his evaluations and services in both cases to be comprehensive and fair to both buyer and seller.
Dr. Rang is thorough, professional and responsive to changes/suggestions. His objective is to `flex` with the clients to make it work and not `boilerplate` the transaction per company template documents. Without his flexibility and professionalism, the `deal` would not have been completed so smoothly. This is greatly appreciated.
I take this occasion to thank you and your associates for your involvement in the marketing and sale of my oral surgery practice. I was impressed with the thorough and professional approach to valuation and advertising of the practice, and, ultimately, the end result of securing a satisfied purchaser.
You helped make a potentially harrowing experience a pleasant and productive endeavor. I thank you for your honesty and professionalism and I would highly recommend you to any dentist in the market for a purchase acquisition.
Greg provided exceptional service and information. Other transition companies were trying to sell me everything they had listed, Greg found what I wanted.
I`ve been very pleased with your overall services. It has been a long journey, trials & errors, I learned tremendously as a business seller from all of you during this process. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all to make this a successful business transition.
Guy is very talented and experienced in this process, and I would highly recommend him to any dentist thinking about selling a practice.
Thank you for your help in selling my practice. I don`t think I could have done it without you. Thank you for being so supportive in addressing my concerns, so knowledgeable in how to handle a transfer of ownership and so persistant in finding just the right people to take over my practice. You made sure my dream of retirement happen.You made what seemed like the impossible happen. Thank you.
Gretchen, even the VERY small practice we acquired after the storm [Hurricane Katrina] turned out to be great. Thanks for always lending a helping hand. You guys are wonderful!
ADS was very helpful throughout every step. Always available for questions and explained everything in easy-to-understand terms. NO COMPLAINTS. Would definitely recommend to others. I do not believe I could have had a better experience.
Phil is unlike anyone else I have met in this industry, and he conducts his business with the utmost level of expertise. He guided me to the right practice; a good fit that had just the right elements for me to build my next career move.
Phil took all the time necessary to fully explain every element of the process. It`s nice to find a professional who can make your life easier.
It was a really pleasure working with you to get this deal done, and looking back 7 years, I have zero regrets and am very thankful for all you professional help, and consulting that got me here. I`ll always keep you in mind for future consulting, and refer you other great clients that are going through partnerships/buy-out.
When my husband passed away I was unprepared to deal with the sale of his practice. I will never forget how much compassion Randy showed me, I immediately felt at ease. She advised me throughout the entire process. I commend not only Randy, but the entire team at The DBS Companies for their tremendous knowledge, guidance and tireless work through a very difficult time.
...it was not our first transaction but rather, our tenth location developed over many years. I must say that the knowledge and professionalism you exhibited in first bringing the opportunity to my attention, counseling me as the project progressed and finally closing the transaction under very challenging circumstances brought home to me the value of working with experienced professionals
Dear Kevin, Ryan & Jan:
Our appreciation is ten-fold!!! We can`t begin to thank you enough for all the time and effort taken in making this transition to retirement happen in our lives. You were instrumental in finding a temporary dentist to keep the business up and running - a relief to be sure. You were that support and catalyst that achieved an end - and for that we are so grateful.
The entire process was smooth and professional. Overall everything was good and if I find myself in the same position again, I will use ADS [Florida] / Paul Rang again.
There is a lot more involved than I imagined, and it is important to work with a professional who has the expertise. Guy did a wonderful job.
Thank you so much for all of your help and support during the most important transition of my life. You helped me launch my dental career and I will be forever grateful. I feel so lucky to have worked with such an ethical and professional individual like yourself and look forward to working with you again in the near future.
C. Gonzalez, DDS
Buying or selling an existing dental practice can be a straight forward process. But if you want to get the best out of the transaction, you`ll need brokerage expertise. Thanks to the professional and experienced broker at Western Practice Sales, I`ve closed the transaction just the way that I want it to be.
Dr. Cooper did the evaluation for me before buying my practice. He did a thorough and professional job. He helped me also with the financing sources and referred me to a very good attorney to finish the transaction. I found his advice and guidance very helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Cooper as a practice evaluation expert.
There was no pressure. Earl almost let nature take its course to find the right buyer for my practice so I could stay and work.
The fact that you are a dentist adds a whole new dimension to your abilities as a broker, one which most other brokers cannot come close to. Your personal dedication to making everything happen was a unique touch. Your experience & knowledge coupled with your kind personal touch I believe makes you the best in the industry!
The sale process was very smooth. I received excellent counsel from Stuart and felt very comfortable with his assistance. The documents were easy to read and understand. I will recommend Stuart Auerbach to any professional who is seeking to transition.
Thank you again, Earl and Elaine, for the prompt and professional manner in which you conducted the sale of my practice.
I`m very satisfied with WPS. They were very knowledgeable and professional in their business. They were also personable and seemed to attend to each clients` case patiently.
I have acquired 3 dental practices. 2 of the 3 were brokered by ADS Lovelace and Associates. Of the 3 experiences, those 2 were, by far, the easiest and fastest to conclude. L & A has even been very supportive in the post acquisition phase of my practice and has provided genuine interest in my success beyond the closing date.
Phil made us feel as though we were his "only clients: although in actuality, he had hundreds of clients going through the same processes. Phil Cooper is truly one of a kind resource blending dentistry, practice transition and business administration with the personal component of making practices click. We would never make a move or decision without his counsel and professional guidance.
Your low pressure approach, along with your openness and honesty on the front end are the primary reasons that I feel absolutely comfortable with the process and result of my practice transaction.
Thanks for all of your help and advice. None of this would have happened without your insight, referrals to the right people, and knowledge. I can`t thank you enough. I am really excited to be a practice owner and a little overwhelmed, but I think once I get into a routine I will be okay. I really appreciate everything you have done for me! Thanks again!
ADS South provided a very professional service. All of my goals were achieved. I am happy with my transition and appreciated the caring attitude of ADS South.
John Hoffman and ADS-Professional Mangement`s service in selling my practice was SUPERB! Their attention to every detail made the process flow smoothly from start to finish.
I received a timely suggestion from a retired dental friend to contact Kevin Shea. My friend`s opinion was extremely valuable. After 40+ years of practice, my patients were like family. Kevin was careful to match my personality with the proper person. My confidentiality was respected and Kevin`s professional yet amiable demeanor helped in our proceedings. It was a real pleasure to work with Kevin.
When you are thinking about transitioning your practice, I strongly recommend that you consider WPS in Yuba City, CA. Earlier this year I listed my practice w/ them & w/in a week they had 22 interested buyers come thru my office. I was floored! I received full asking price for my practice & every detail of the transaction was handle promptly & professionally. The level of service was exceptional.
Due to ADS South`s knowledge of my desires and their quick action, I was able to find the perfect practice for me in, literally, weeks.
I really appreciate that you gave me this opportunity. As you know, I`ve been searching for a practice over a year and had bad experience with other agents in the past. Your experiences, professionalism and efficiency made this transaction happen, it was not easy, but I was lucky to have your advice. I definitely recommend you to my friends. Thank you very much!
Guy Jaffe has been instrumental in this transition. He has been like a great coach. His vast experience has been invaluable. There is no way this could have happened without his help.
It’s great to have you right here in the Sacramento area. You were always available and always full of advice. Thank you
The sale of my practice was handled by ADS South in a professional and courteous manner with no unnecessary interruptions during the process. I would highly recommend their services to any dentist.
You made the overwhelming task of getting financing, finding a lawyer and CPA, and practice consultant, not to mention finding the perfect office - all effortless.
The merger is working. Earl, that you for helping to create this new practice - without you I would never have taken this step - who knows what I may dare to do next!
Greg Auerbach was very professional, personable and gave good advice regarding the sale of the practice. His experience and insight helped "close the deal" with the right dentist.
Dr. Paul Rang made sure that our closing would run as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend using them [ADS Florida] for selling or even buying a practice.
When I was considering the sale of my practice, I had many questions about the process and if it was the right thing to do. You always gave me very candid and honest answers with my best interests in mind. I had been told it was difficult to sell practices in smaller communities, yet you made it look easy. I was especially impressed with your attention to details. My very sincere thanks!
The transition process was very smooth. Paul Rang/ADS was very organized and helpful. Paul was always there to answer questions or give advice. The documents were well written and fair to all parties.
Ed, I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for all of the help you gave me in selling my practice. I apologize for not thanking you sooner, but I’ve been swamped with transition related things. I will continue recommending you to my friends and associates as a terrific dental practice broker!
I have been in the market to buy a practice for over 3 years. I have worked with several agents. No one worked like Dr. Cooper. He worked for the true interest of his clients. He helped me find a right match, fairly priced practice & created a win-win deal for both parties. He is professional; transition was very smooth. I recommend Dr. Cooper to anyone who wants to buy or sell a practice.
When it was time to sell my practice, I thought about Fred since we`ve worked together before. I could not have done this without him. Attention to detail, honesty, and integrity were important to me, and Fred came through on all counts. If any of my dentist colleagues are considering a practice transition, I would strongly recommend Fred Heppner, without hesitation.
My experience with ADS Florida, LLC in the sale of my specialty practice was exceptional in fulfilling both my timing and financial requirements. Paul Rang, DMD, JD was invaluable in facilitating a successful conclusion to the practice sale.
The process of selling a Dental Practice is never easy. It takes time, patience & expert guide. Dr. Phil Cooper is just that guide. I can’t say enough about Phil`s ability & professionalism. He evaluated my practice & had prospective buyers to see my office. He helped me to evaluate the choices of buyers I had to choose from. If I had to do it again I would not hesitate choosing Phil Cooper.
Western Practice Sales was very patient w/ us as we looked at several practices. They helped guide us to a practice that was an absolute perfect fit. They made each step of the way much easier for us, getting us the contacts we needed to make the transition as smooth as possible. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, & made a potentially stressful time relatively stress-free.
Dr. Paul Rang was great. He was very trustworthy and had an endless amount of knowledge.
ADS South is well-connected and on top of things. The practice evaluation was timely and I was very impressed that it was accomplished as promised. My practice sold in the necessary time frame as requested. Everything worked well with my transition.
Evan a few very tense moments were handled gracefully. Subsequent contact with the buyer confirms the accuracy of your valuation procedures - his cash flow has consistently met or exceeded your projections. I`d hire you again in a minute.
As a buyer, I know Steve gave me information I would not have gotten from others. I was able to make an informed decision as a result.
Always quick to return my calls and messages. Honest evaluation of all issues. His services met my needs excellently and I would choose ADS South again.
Just wanted you to know how much I appreciated your help and guidance in the sale of my practice. I couldn`t have been more pleased with the outcome.
I have been personally involved in several practice transitions and found this to be the easiest by far.
After 42 years in general practice, I was very apprehensive about making the change. Dr. Rang handled the transition as well as anyone could. I can`t say enough about his knowledge and demeanor. He`s the one you`re looking for.
It was a pleasure to work with Lovelace and Associates! Their team is there for you every step of the way. Without them, I could not have progressed my dental career
"Randy Daigler Handled the sale of my first dental practice and the purchase of my second practice. She was professional, knowledgeable, and provided invaluable assistance throughout the entire process. Her guidance during negotiations resulted in a smooth practice transtion for both buyer and seller."
When I hired Phil to represent me in a divorce proceeding, the opposing counselor was so impressed that he wanted to hire Phil to use in another case. I have recommended Phil to many dentists, and I continue to rely on his services and expertise; twenty five years later, I recently had a new appraisal done. Most of all, I trust him.
I recently sold my practice and was very pleased with the help I received from Radman, White and Associates. They broke down a seemingly overwhelming task into an organized group of actions. I appreciated their professionalism and the timeliness in which they responded throughout the process. I fully endorse their assistance for any endodontic transition.
