“I have worked with Rob Stanbery and Practice Transition Partners since 1999, and in that time he has orchestrated two critical practice sales/mergers on my behalf. He is a consummate professional gentleman with absolute integrity, timeliness and always presents clear strategies that work. He has a very unique manner about him that makes you immediately feel at ease, and listened to.  He will spend whatever time is needed to build a relationship with a client, or a potential buyer, and is accessible anytime during a transition process. A buyer of a dental practice will always have significant anxiety and concerns about making a good decision. Rob understands this, and in my case he would spend hours upon hours in meetings to address each and every concern a buyer may bring to the table.  He is hands on and intimately involved throughout the process. Rob understands a paramount principle in business which is always seek a win-win deal. This is one of the secrets to the stunning success and longevity of Practice Transition Partners.

 In my 31 years of private practice, I have completed 5 different practice transitions including mergers/sales, and so I speak from experience. Rob has completed 2 of these 5 deals, and my experience in the other 3 was not exceptional in any way, but filled with some degree of pressure, confusion, and/or lack of support. By comparison, Rob Stanbery, and Practice Transition Partners have exceeded my expectations in every way. 

Rob is so well respected by the professional financial community that he has access to the finest accountants, lawyers and bankers who truly act as his partners for his clients in formulating all legal, financial and tax related issues that are critical to a well-planned dental practice transition. Rob also has a reputation of representing very successful dental practices and he understands the high tech, state of the art dental practice. He can equally and successfully represent a multi-million-dollar practice, as well as a solo small practice. He is about the personal touch, while being totally results driven. This comes in a package with honesty, warmth and a cheerful outlook. Rob is truly like that great neighbor, or old friend who would always be available to pull up a barstool, buy you a drink and offer a receptive ear to whatever was important to you...Rob is a rare find in today’s business world.”

I recently sold my amazing dental practice to Dustin Webb. He is the sort of talented and delightful younger dentist that you dream of selling your practice to.

Selling your practice is insanely difficult and emotional...with countless unforeseen complications that cannot be overemphasized.

You absolutely need a honed professional as your broker! This benefits both the buyer and the seller.

I was fortunate to have Rob Stanbery recommended by a colleague. He is phenomenal on every possible level...I doubt my practice sale would have been successful without his help. I give him my strongest endorsement!

“I have great respect for you and the work you do for all this to be accomplished. Great job, Rob! Thank you, doesn't quite say it all. Your perseverance with me, throughout, was amazing... I feel like I'm putting down a fast action book, the last chapter closes, but the adrenaline is still working… thanks again for everything.”

"Dear Rob:

I want to thank you for all of your help with my recent practice sale. We have known each other for at least 16 years, and I must say you are just as energetic, insightful and upbeat as when we first did business on my purchase of this practice years ago. 

From start to finish, your positive insight and ability to understand my retirement plans and desire for a compatible buyer at a fair and reasonable valuation were impressive. You and your staff were accessible and available every step of the way and made the process so much easier than I had anticipated. I can recommend your services without hesitation.

Thanks again”

When I was first looking into the thought of retirement, I asked for some advice from a good friend who had gone through the process a few years earlier.  We got to the part of having someone appraise the practice and assist in the transition; there was no hesitation in his recommendation of Rob Stanbery at Practice Transition Partners.

I met with Rob and felt very comfortable with his knowledge and experience in transitioning dental practices.  Throughout the process I was amazed at not only his attention to the details, but to his availability and willingness to take whatever time I needed to understand, approve, or have options for each step along the way.  As I told him numerous times, it took me a while to realize I wasn’t the only person he was dealing with at that moment; Rob truly makes you feel like you are!  He made me feel confident during a process which could possibly be very uncomfortable.

Practice Transition Partners made my transition as easy as possible, especially helping me to locate a dentist I felt comfortable passing on the care of my patients.

To anyone looking for help with your transition, I would, without hesitation, recommend Rob Stanbery to guide you along the way.  I do not see how I could have done it without his knowledge, experience and dedication.  Thank you!!!

"Practice Transition Partners was instrumental in helping me to relocate to where I have always wanted to live. They understood the kind of practice I had and were able to find someone with similar goals and practice style. They were with me, every step of the way, throughout the sale to make it as smooth a transition as possible. The kind of practices that we are creating today requires a transition team that truly understands their unique value."

Carl Hicks, Jr., Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer FIRST PACIFIC CORPORATION

Whether providing support for practice sales, acquisitions, mergers or valuations, they are quite simply the best!"

Robert J. Van Dyke, DDS - Las Vegas, NV

"Dear Rob,
I can't begin to thank you for all of the assistance you gave me in my recent purchase of my present dental practice here in Las Vegas. After you helped me sell my practice in Green Bay, Wisconsin, I never thought I would have to call upon your services again. When I decided that semi-retirement wasn't for me and I wanted to own a dental practice again, you were the first person I thought of to call.

My second experience with Practice Transition Partners was just as enjoyable as the first. You were so professional in the manner in which you negotiated the purchase. You were able to calculate a practice value that was reasonable and fair to both me as a buyer and the dentist who was selling the practice. Even his attorney mentioned how impressed he was that you had so many facts correct and that you made so many great recommendations to the correct wording of the final contract.

Your expert advice was reassuring to me, and gave me the confidence I needed to discuss any issue of the purchase with the selling dentist. There was no disagreement with the purchase price because you had taken the time to correctly calculate the value of the practice. The other dentist accepted your figures without an argument because it was clearly evident that you had arrived at the actual true purchase price and value of the existing practice.

Rob, I can't begin to thank you enough for helping me begin this new phase of my dental career. I would honestly, and without any hesitation, recommend you to any dentist who is considering selling their practice or purchasing an existing practice. You have my gratitude and appreciation, and I will always be grateful for your expertise.


And after selling in Las Vegas a few years later . . .

"It is a strange feeling, but after 44 years, it was just time . . . I enjoy the retirement and being home with Pam. The decision to sell was the right thing to do at the right time. I am so grateful for all of your help in making all of this happen. You have been a very important part of my business life over the past twelve years and I sincerely appreciate your friendship."
