Greenfield Family Dentistry

“Over the past year, I have had the pleasure of working with and getting to
know Ron Stallman. I first reached out to IDS Dental Practice Transitions
and spoke with Ron during a meet and greet phone call in the spring of
2020. I was an associate dentist at the time and just beginning the process
of searching for a potential practice acquisition. Ron took the time to get
to know me on a personal level. I appreciate that he started with the end
in mind by asking about my vision for the future and how I wanted my
career to play out. Ron asked questions I had not considered and provoked
actionable steps to solidify my vision. He helped me understand the necessity
of having clarity in what I was looking for and how important it was to buy a
practice that aligned with my own personal vision.

After understanding what I was looking for, Ron and I put together a
blueprint for the type of practice that would fit my needs. We discussed
work-life balance, startups and acquisitions, solo and group models, number
of operatories, active patients, key performance indicators for predicting
growth potential, demographics and other factors. Throughout that spring
and summer, Ron followed up and shared several practice opportunities to
fit my blueprint. As it turned out, my discussions with Ron helped me solidify
my vision and I chose to purchase the office I was an associate in.

Shortly after the first practice acquisition, Ron reached out with another
practice opportunity he thought I might be interested in. He knew my goals
and continued to work from the established blueprint, and sure enough, I
wanted to pursue this opportunity.

Ron represented me through every step of the buying process – from
reviewing the financials of the practice, to going to bat for me with banks, to
making an offer, drafting the Letter of Intent, negotiating on my behalf and
finally closing the deal. He played a vital role in serving as a liaison with the
seller to ensure the sale stayed on track. The process was quick and easy.

In the months that followed, Ron continued to check in – sometimes for
tax and accounting advice, sometimes to share his wisdom for growing
practices and other times to serve as a sounding board for a new owner of
two practices. To say I recommend Ron as a buyers’ representative would be
an understatement. Truthfully, I would not choose anyone else. The entire
trajectory of my career and life changed thanks to Ron and IDS Transitions,
and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
