I found Phil and Kevin to be most helpful in showing me the pathway to retirement. They were always available if I had a question or concern, and I always had the feeling that they had my best interests at heart throughout the process. Would recommend them without hesitation.
It was a wonderful experience to work with such devoted and professional brokers. Our experience was extremely positive because of their work ethic and immediate responses to all of our questions and needs. Highly recommend !!!
"Fred was wonderful to work with. I was buying my partner out and he was instrumental in being a non biased 3rd party to facilitate the sale and make sure each party understood the other side and each piece of the sale. He really took his time in speaking to us together and individually and was able to communicate all questions and concerns seamlessly. He also made himself available just about whenever necessary day or night. I would absolutely work with Fred again on future transactions given my great experience. He truly cared about both parties involved not just a commission."
J. Gregson, D.D.S.
As a dental practice owner for 20 years, there comes a time in your career when you transition from active ownership.
In the fall of 2016, I made the decision to sell my successful dental practice and transition to managing clinical director and lead dentist.
I contacted Fred Heppner for a practice appraisal and engaged his services for the sale.
In March of 2017, we closed the sale of the practice and a successful transition from owner to lead dentist, released me from the day to day business responsibilities that every dentist is faced with.
Fred was an ethical and responsive broker for my practice. He found the perfect match for the new ownership, which allowed the remaining time in my career to be some of the most fulfilling on a professional basis.
I can highly recommend Fred if any dentist is considering selling or buying a dental practice.
Phil Cooper was very helpful and responsive for the 2 1/2 years it took to sell my dental practice. He was always there to provide good advice throughout the entire process. There were certainly many ups and downs before crossing the finish line. Phil worked well with my accountant and attorney. His input was important to overcome various hurdles. Phil’s experience, professional manner, and ability to work with people make him a great choice to broker your dental practice.
A wise sports star once said, “You don’t know what you don’t know”. The complexity of a practice transition is staggering, it is truly a team event. In ordinary times the events can be overwhelming starting with practice evaluation, marketing, meeting prospective candidates and qualifying those individuals on many levels. Then there is negotiating, financing, accounting, and legal agreements. Again, this journey is an odyssey in the best of times. In keeping with a sport analogy, you will be playing in the big leagues and unless you have prior practice sales experience it is best to realize you are a rookie. At the same time, it is incumbent that you maintain the health of your practice as a clinician. No matter how great a clinician you are, you will be in a new game. You will be stretched time wise in the best of circumstances. You need a strong team captain who has managed in the playoffs. Now, if you are not convinced, try transitioning a practice when the Commonwealth shuts you down for a couple of months. We knew from colleagues that Dr. Cooper was an All-Star, but after he and Kevin Cooper successfully transitioned our practice during the pandemic, we can honestly tell you that they are in the Hall of Fame at what they do. Flat out, without their experience, wisdom, contacts, and mutual respect for all the involved parties, this transition would never have been completed. The transition of your practice will prove to be one of the most complex, time consuming and important events of your career. Do yourself a huge favor and obtain the best guidance you possibly can garner, call Philip Cooper and Kevin Cooper of American Practice Consultants.
Philip and Kevin Cooper were wonderful to deal with. We recently purchased a dental practice during Covid. Everything was smooth, quick, and effective with our transaction. We highly recommend their services. It was a pleasure and wonderful to deal with them.
I got to know Dr. Cooper in 2004 when he helped me to purchase my first practice. Dr. Cooper guided me through the purchasing process. With his knowledge and support the transition went really well. I have just sold my second practice through him and, once again, I benefited from his years of experience in this transition. Due to the recent pandemic, I did not think I could sell the practice that easily. However with the help and support of American Practice Consultants, the practice was sold with an excellent outcome. I would highly recommend Dr. Cooper and his team to dentists for purchasing and selling their practices.
I just wanted to say thank you to Sarah Pajot and DBS for orchestrating my recent dental practice acquisition. This was the second practice I have purchased with the assistance of DBS and the transition was just as smooth as the first. Unlike the first transition, this was a merger which made things a little more complicated but with Sarah’s expertise all the details were taken care of in a professional and efficient manner. I will be calling Sarah when I am ready to acquire the next practice.
Sarah Pajot and DBS did a great job of finding potential buyers for my dental practice. Sarah is also very gifted at problem solving the sticking points that inevitably arise to bring the buyer and seller together and ultimately to a win-win agreement. Thank you. Everything has worked out great!
I have had the opportunity this past year to work with Sarah Pajot, my transition specialist at DBS, in the acquisition of a dental practice. She has been an excellent adviser and advocate; Sarah is thorough and diligent. She has been a great asset through the entire process.
Working with DBS, the practice transition was very smooth. Sarah takes the seller, the purchaser, and the staff by the hand and walks them through every necessary move. They include specialized seminars given by DBS professionals, all the necessary Paperwork, in order to keep everyone knowing the correct steps to take for a successful transition for the practice and the patients.
Sarah was an outstanding facilitator of my practice purchase transition. I could not have asked for a better guide through the process. Sarah is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of a practice transition. She is very efficient, communicative, motivated, friendly and genuinely cares about her clients. I cannot say enough positive things about Sarah and DBS. Thank you.
I did my homework and read all the practice transition articles. I thought, as when I purchased my practice 40 years ago, that I could do this mostly on my own. I entertained a few inquiries and knew the vultures were circling and I was dead meat. What to do? Call Phil and Kevin Cooper!!! I brought my loving wife/ office manager with me. She needed to understand and be educated in the practice sale process. Phil and Kevin are so honest, straight forward and available for questions that by the end of our second meeting, my wife became a confident center of communication and sharer of information and knowledge. Every practice transition is different. The Coopers’ asked us tough questions, debunked myths and guided us through the mine field of today’s practice transition environment. Our journey was rough and tumble, however, Phil and Kevin never flinched. Their insight and experience prepared us for different scenarios. During the difficult negotiation process they were there with thoughtful, concise and timely recommendations along with a side platter of pitfalls of which to be aware. Our fondest memory of this transition is the knowledge that Phil and Kevin stood by us all the way, well past the Settlement Day.
I have dealt with brokers of all sorts in my life. Many were little more than listers, relying on others to do the "heavy" work of actually making a sale happen. I wanted an individual who was not just a lister. I received that with Fred. His prospectus of my practice was bank ready. I followed his recommendations for my discussions with a buyer. Though not an accountant, his review of my recent tax returns showed an accounting error that provided me a large refund after submitting an amended return. Also not an attorney, he explained points in the contract that I should consider. He communicated well with the buyer and the lender right up until funds were wired to me from the lender. He was WELL worth his fee and I'm most happy I had his help working through what can be a very difficult process with unexpected roadblocks. THANK YOU FRED!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
We are very pleased to endorse Dr. Phil Cooper and American Practice Consultants for the services provided for our recent practice transition. From our first consultation to the closing of the practice sale, Dr. Cooper displayed outstanding professionalism, expertise and guidance. He was always available on very short notice to answer any questions or help solve any problems we encountered. Most importantly, if a difficulty in the negotiations occurred, he offered wise counsel, explaining all the pros and cons to the issue at hand, but he NEVER tried to persuade us to capitulate or urge us to make a decision just to get the deal done. He always stressed that we should feel comfortable with whatever decision we would reach. We offer Dr. Cooper and American Practice Consultants our highest recommendation and thank him and his staff for all kindness and support provided over the last 8 months.
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 have known Phil Cooper for many years and in spite of having tried to work with others on occasion, Dr. Cooper is the only person I would trust to handle the sale and transition of my practice. He is fair and honest. Dr. Cooper is the only one to recognize years ago that I was not ready to sell and had the forthrightness to tell me so. So when the time came there was no one other than Phil I would trust to help me through this process. Thank you Dr. Cooper.
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 Lovelace and Associates! Their team is there for you every step of the way. Without them, I could not have progressed my dental career
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!
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.
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.
I would recommend Steve and ADS-Professional Management to anyone. He is the BEST.
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!
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.
[The unbrokered sale of my practice] was an absolute roller coaster experience (and I don't mean a Disney experience). I want to thank you for your advice and interest in the process. If I had to do it again I would have ABSOLUTELY used you to handle all of the details and baggage that came with the deal. I will be the first to suggest your service if I am asked by any of my colleagues.
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.
The sale of my practice happened so fast my head is still turning.
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.
...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
My practice transition with Dr. Philip Cooper was exceptional. When previous attempts to sell the practice were unsuccessful, he took charge of the process, had control of all aspects and saw it to its successful conclusion. We felt like we were in charge of the process. His advice was always timely and experienced. He knew exactly the correct, objective and fair course of action for both transition partners. Based on previous experiences, my practice transition was and continues to be seamless. I owe Dr. Cooper a debt of gratitude. I heartily recommend Dr. Cooper for any practice transition. His portfolio has 34 plus years of successes.
The transition has been very smooth and very satisfactory.
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.
After practicing dentistry for 48 years, I thought it was time to retire. I contacted Phil Cooper on a professional level after knowing him socially for many years. He immediately put me at ease while explaining the process ahead. Within a week he had contacted several prospects whom he had on hand that matched as possible buyers. When a buyer was interested, he quickly negotiated a selling price in line with the appraised price of the practice. Now came the attorney review and the transitioning of the staff and the new dentist. He guided us through this whole process with his calm, kind professionalism. We would highly recommend him for any aspect of buying or selling a practice.
Dr. Phil Cooper was able to put together a team and my practice was sold in less than 3 months. This is after I had to immediately stop practicing because I needed extensive ongoing medical treatment. My practice was open during that 3 month period and patients were treated by very competent temporary dentists. My office manager and dental assistant each stayed on for the new owner. Dr. Cooper is the best.
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.
My partner and I have purchased two and sold one practice with Phil's aid over the past six years. His services and experience with the process were invaluable. From start to finish he handled everything with professionalism and ease. He has been pivotal to our professional success. I can not give a higher recommendation. (Another practice location is in Marlton, New Jersey.)
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Steve Jordan, PMAgroup owner, was a tremendous help throughout the process of selling my practice. I received a great offer and a timely closing. His expertise is a resource I will continue to rely upon for all my transition needs.
Dr. Cooper was fantastic to work with. The practice sale went incredibly smooth. I would highly recommend Dr. Cooper for anyone looking to sell!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Highly recommend Phil to anyone who is thinking to transition out of practice. Phil helped me with the sale of my two practices in 2010 and 2018. He is a knowledgeable and responsible person who you can trust.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Getting Phil Cooper's help during my practice sale was such an immense help. I needed his guidance during the entire process, which could be delicate at times. He was always very tactful and helpful, letting me know how to handle buyer's questions, my employees, patients, etc. He even went beyond that, and gave me few tips on relocating (my family was moving to the West Coast), since I was interesting in owning my own business once situated. It was a wonderful, pain-free experience. I would recommend him strongly to anyone in the process of selling their dental practice.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Your team has the best attitude, answers and assistance during the transition & close of my practice sale.
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.
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.
Recently, I completed a practice transition under the auspices of Dr. Phillip Cooper, President of American Practice Consultants. After forty years of dental practice, I was ready to retire, but not completely certain how to achieve this goal. After meeting with Dr. Cooper, I had a strong sense that his expertise was exactly what I needed. He was knowledgeable in all aspects of the transition. His presentation of candidates, bankers and attorneys were excellent references. Most important to me was the feeling that he was fair to both the buyer and seller. If you are considering a practice transition, I highly recommend Dr. Cooper.
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.
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!
Thanks Phil for all your help. You are very professional and helpful. Couldn't have done it without you!
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.
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.
We have done a few of these the past eight or so years. Always smooth dealing with you.
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.
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.
I appreciated working with Preston Lovelace even though he did not represent me. He really worked hard to make sure the banks got the right information the entire time and stayed on track and all other legal issues were addressed. I would certainly consider working with him in the future if I were purchasing or selling a practice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It's great to have you right here in the Sacramento area. You were always available and always full of advice. Thank you
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.
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!
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 have worked with Philip to buy my first practice. I expected the process to be stressful but working with Phil made everything thing go smoother than expected. He is very knowledgeable and a helpful person. He even was giving me advice outside of the transition process. I would highly recommend working with Phil to sell or buy your next practice. Hopefully will work again soon on my second practice.
Dear Kevin, 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!
Earl listened carefully to our individual needs and tailored a unique contract for our situation . . . he truly wants to make both parties happy.
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!
Not only were the 'before the sale of practice' details taken care of completely, but also questions gladly answered after sale was completed.
When I first considered retiring I attended information sessions. I was impressed with Dr. Cooper and contacted him. He was very knowledgeable, professional and patient guiding me through every step. His advice and timely correspondences were very helpful to keep the process moving forward. I appreciate all of Dr. Cooper's efforts to make my practice transition have a successful outcome.
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!
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.
I like to thank you for your help in the sale of my practice. Selling my life's work is not easy, but you made this process almost seamless and effortless. I could not have asked for a better outcome. Thank you.
Your service and professionalism was terrific, and your knowledge and experience was invaluable in a very difficult time in our lives. I am very happy with the result and would recommend your services to others looking to accomplish this arduous task.
The sale would not have been possible without ADS South.
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 wanted to have my own practice over last 3 years and finally it became true with Dr. Cooper’s knowledge and expertise in guiding me. He helped me finalize my decision last December 2017 and I am so glad I did the whole process with him. I had multiple stressful decisions and questions throughout this transition and Dr. Cooper answered and helped me figure out everything so patiently. I definitely want to work with him in future.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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. 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.
Guy is very talented and experienced in this process, and I would highly recommend him to any dentist thinking about selling a practice.
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!
Phil Cooper sent several qualified prospects. He put forth great effort to find the perfect match for the ongoing treatment of my patients. Phil is truly a kind, considerate and very knowledgeable broker. I would recommend Phil Cooper to anyone who is thinking about selling, merging or buying a dental practice. Thank you, Phil, for everything you have done for me,
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.
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!"
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 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.
Dr. Douglas was my cheerleader and mentor. He had both parties' interests at heart.
Thank you again, Earl and Elaine, for the prompt and professional manner in which you conducted the sale of my practice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
My work with Phil 15 years ago to buy a dental practice resulted in an experience that was beyond my expectations in terms of finding the right match and having the best deal. That's why ,when I decided to sell the same practice years later, Phil was the first to contact to take care of the whole project . What I appreciated most about working with Phil was his ability to cut through the predictable problems in a project and deliver the expected results.
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!
Thanks for your help, patience and time with the transition and past practice opportunities. Thanks for the flowers.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
We thank you for all your help selling the practice. Your persistance helped make all the pieces come together.
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.
Earl found the perfect practice for me only five minutes from home which allows me to balance my work and my family life.
I would like to give a huge thank you to Dr. Phil Cooper of American Practice Consultants for acting as broker of the sale of my dental practice. Dr. Cooper is very experienced, knowledgeable, and helpful. He was always available to answer questions. There were numerous e-mails and phone calls from both the buyer and myself asking for advice. Dr. Cooper was always very patient, understanding, and expeditious handling our inquiries. He provides a personal touch to the process of transition. I highly recommend Dr. Cooper to any dentist considering the sale of their practice.
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.
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!
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.
I am enjoying my retirement. . . thank you for facilitating the transition.
We did not have a million dollar practice, but we sure had a million-dollar broker!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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
I appreciate honest win-win contracts.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Dr. Cooper evaluated my practice and gave me a thorough understanding of its worth and then proceeded to market my practice. Within days, 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
When I purchased my practice in 1985, Dr. Cooper was there to guide me through the purchasing process. I have just sold my practice in 2018. And, once again, I benefited from his years of experience in this transition. I know of no other practice firm that delivers the knowledge, the support, and the meticulous care that American Practice Consultants provides. Purchasing and selling a dental practice these days is more complicated than ever. All the more reason to have a competent professional at your side during this process. Simply stated; Dr Cooper is the best person to have as you navigate through it.
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 want to thank you for your professional handling of the sale of my dental practice and building. Without your help it would never have been sold. Also thank you for all the advice and guidance you offered during the negotiations.
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.
Phil Cooper was the right man for the job when it came to selling my practice. I chose him for his straight forward practicality and experience, and he did not disappoint. At a time when I was recovering from major surgery, Phil kept the process moving forward and on target. He had many buyers who were interested, and guided me through the tricky decision of choosing one based on my future expectations. He weeded out those who seemed interested, but were not really serious. Further, he knew the local market very well, after having dealt with many of the potential candidates previously. I would highly recommend Philip Cooper if you want to get the job done in an efficient and organized way. I felt as though his first hand knowledge and background information on many of the interested parties was invaluable to making an informed and profitable choice.
Selling a dental practice can be very stressful and intimidating. I never knew how much was involved. Phil Cooper made the process almost frictionless. I could never have done this without his guidance (I know because I tried). I highly recommend Phil Cooper as a transition agent for your practice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Your expertise is deeply appreciated. Working with you has been a pleasure.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
I recently sold my practice with the help of Phil Cooper and American Practice Consultants. From the time I listed the practice until settlement, Phil guided me every step of the way. His practice evaluation was spot-on as I received the full asking price. He provided an array of potential buyers and from among them, I was able to select just the right fit for my practice in just a few months. When there were bumps in the road, Phil helped smooth them out. I would highly recommend American Practice Consultants for anyone selling a practice.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent service that you provided in helping me buy my practice and the real estate. I would surely recommend you and the American Practice Consultants to anyone thinking about buying or selling a dental practice. I cannot say enough good things about how you handled the recent transition of this practice. You always had good suggestions whenever I did not know what the next step was.You kept very good lines of communication open between all parties. You were always available with a fast response whenever I needed anything or had a question regarding the purchase. I have already given your name to several colleagues of mine who are thinking about buying a dental practice. Once again I thank you, Dr. Cooper, for making this transition seamless and a pleasant one.
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
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.
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.
Four weeks after signing with American Practice Consultants, Phil had arranged for several prospective buyers to view the practice. Dr. Cooper guided me and with the help of Phil we were able to close within 4 months. With his professionalism, knowledge and courtesy I would highly recommend American Practice Consultants to any dental professional looking to buy or sell a practice.
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.
I have been personally involved in several practice transitions and found this to be the easiest by far.
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.
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.
Dr. Phillip Cooper, of American Practice Consultants, recently helped me to sell my dental practice. He was extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and reassuring as he expertly guided me through the twists and turns of the process. He supplied me with potential buyers and was instrumental in my choosing the right one. Phil was always available and continues to be with my transition. I highly recommend Dr. Cooper to anyone looking to sell his or her practice. Many thanks. Robert J. Golden, D.M.D.
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.
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.
Without your services, this transition would have been very difficult. I appreciate all your help.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
My only regret is that I didn't call Earl Douglas sooner.
I would definitely recommend the help of American Practice Consultants to anyone looking to make a transition in the dental field. I'm not sure what is typical, but for me I feel in love with the first practice I looked at through Phil Cooper. I am happy to say I closed on the practice about a month ago. We have just finished the transition process and I could not be more pleased. It was a smooth, easy process and I wish the same experience for everyone else.
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 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!
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!
Thanks for all your help Phil. Your experience and wisdom led to this successful transaction. There is no doubt that you are the "man" when any dentist is looking to sell or buy a practice. I would highly recommend your services to any colleague. Again thanks for your diligence in getting the deal done.
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!
Now that the dust has settled I would like to sincerely thank you for all your efforts on my behalf. Your professionalism and integrity were instrumental in enabling both parties to resolve multiple issues. I cannot recommend anyone more highly than you. From appraisal to consummation you provided a guiding hand. I would certainly be happy to tell any of your prospective clients of the value you create as a broker. Thank you again.
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.
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.
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.
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.
"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 transition for both buyer and seller."
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.
Thank you all for everything. You did a great job.
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.
I would highly recommend Phil Cooper to anyone that requires help with their practice. I sold my practice after 44 years and the outcome was quite satisfying. Phil always acted in a professional manner and gave honest opinions during the process. He made this daunting task move along in an orderly manner. He was fair in looking at both sides of the sale when requested to reach the best outcome. I found it money well spent to have his knowledge in all aspects of this transition.
I found a great practice through Dr. Philip Cooper. I have been looking on and off for at least 6 months, if not longer, in different practice transition companies. American Practice Consultants had practices that I didn’t see listed elsewhere and was able to timely deliver messages between the owner and the buyer. If you didn’t have lawyers, banks, or participate in dental insurances, Dr. Cooper was able to give you contact information and let you make the decision whether you want to use them or not. I was able to move my process along in a timely fashion to get the practice that I wanted. Therefore, I definitely recommend Dr. Philip Cooper from American Practice Consultants.
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!
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.
Thank you so very much with the guidance and advice you gave me in the sale of my practice. All went well and your help through the entire process was of great value. You were "right on" in matching me with the correct buyer. Thanks again and the best to you and to your business, American Practice Consultants.
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!
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!
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.
Steve is fair and honest with both seller and buyer. It is a real pleasure to do business with Steve
...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
When I decided to sell my dental practice I interviewed a lot of the brokers in the area. I decided on Phil Cooper and American Practice Consultants because of his many years of experience and his attention to detail when he visited my practice. The practice was barely listed and I had many interested qualified buyers. Offers came in quickly for the asking price and above the asking price. It was a very difficult decision and Phil provided excellent guidance throughout the process never interfering with my choice. He was a great coordinator between buyer and seller, attorneys and banks. Settlement took place within 4 months and it was seamless. He is the only broker that I would recommend for practice transition. Thank you so much Phil!
Although Dr. Cooper was the consultant for the seller of the practice I recently purchased, he dedicated so much energy and time into making sure that I felt comfortable and informed about my big decision to buy, and made the entire experience feel secure and positive. I would recommend APC to anyone looking either to buy or sell a practice. Dr. Cooper truly did his due diligence to get to know me and the seller personally so we could all genuinely endorse the purchase or sale decision of this practice based on a real alignment of core values, principles, and vision. It would have been such a struggle for me to purchase a practice where I felt disharmony with staff, the retiring dentist, or governing business and clinical philosophies, and Dr. Cooper made sure that wouldn't be the case. I will be forever grateful for the support and guidance. Dr. Cooper - thank you for everything.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Phil, I want to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude for the way you guided me through the major transition of selling my practice. The process seemed so overwhelming at times, but knowing you were guiding it gave me great comfort. With your experience you seemed to know when to nudge and when to wait. And never once did I doubt you were 100% in my corner looking out for my best interest. At the same time you were always open to my input and always available to answer a question or reassure me. Even your secretary, Barbara, was always helpful and delightful to talk to. I would wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone considering this monumental step, especially if the practice is in an area not considered to be upscale. You made it happen for me in a way I would not have expected!
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.
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.
