SEE WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Dear Sheryl and Todd, I was very pleased with the entire experience of selling my practice through your company, from the very beginning of meeting you to the very end of sighing the contract. I was explained the initial agreement in clear terms, and I was never pressured to do anything I did not feel comfortable with. All of the terms in the agreement were met in full and I did not spend additional money or faced hidden costs. When you introduced me to potential buyers, you had my best interests in mind and again I did not feel that you were pressuring me into something I didn’t feel comfortable with. I was also very pleased with your professional referrals. When you found the right person to purchase my business, you developed a draft of the sale together with the attorney that you also recommended and you helped me during the negotiations and reviews of the draft of the final agreement. All in all, the transition of the business ownership was handled very smoothly and professionally. I felt that I was well-supported throughout the whole deal.

Dear Todd and Sheryl, The intricacies involved in selling my practice were monumental and you managed the process beautifully. Your network of legal, financial and accounting professionals necessary to bring completion to the sale cut right through what could have been a multitude of more decisions I would have to make. Everyone worked seamlessly in partnership and I can’t thank you enough for putting together such a high-quality team. Stepping away from 34-years of practicing dentistry (29-years in my own practice) was more of an emotional rollercoaster than I anticipated. You both were there to support me, at all hours of the day, with sage advice and wisdom gained from your experiences with other retiring dentists. Your personal level of service is rarely found in today’s business world. Once I signed a contract with ddsmatch I was amazed at how quickly the sale process moved ahead. The timing was exactly right for me and it is my wholehearted pleasure to recommend you to others contemplating retiring or purchasing a practice.

Todd and Sheryl spent a considerable amount of time interacting with the lawyers and buyer through the processes of negotiating the letter of intent and purchase agreement and executing the final settlement. Nothing fell through the cracks as they were attuned to all the details and a timely resolution of outstanding matters. They are very experienced and handled the sale in a logical, comprehensive manner. I was quite impressed with the professionalism of Todd and Sheryl and would not hesitate to recommend them to others. Dr. Michael R.
