“I have owned a dental practice for over 20 years in Irving, TX and when I made the decision to sell my practice and transition from an owner to an associate dentist, I called Rich Nicely, owner of Texas Practice Transitions. His experience with merging and sales of dental practices was extensive.

I was nervous and worried about the changes and I really had a lot of questions. Rich was reassuring, continuously available and a great listener. The practice evaluation was detailed and thorough. His advice and guidance through this process was invaluable. His knowledge of the field, attention to detail and no-pressure approach was greatly appreciated. It was painless.

I would highly recommend and encourage you to call Rich Nicely, for you practice transitions.”

“Rich is a consummate professional.  He really cared about me, listened and was attentive to my needs, just like we as dentists try to do for our patients.  Within weeks a match was made, deal struck and a smooth transaction obtained. I really can’t say enough about how pleased I was with this transaction.”
