I recently worked with Amanda Christy and NPT to sell my dental practice. Amanda was very patient; it took me almost a year from the time I initially spoke with her to decide that selling was the right decision for me. She worked very closely with me to make sure that I was comfortable with the process and also with the buyer. There was no request that she could not fulfill and she was in constant contact with me throughout the entire sale. She provided resources and contacts who were familiar with the sales process and this helped to ease my anxiety as well as making the process move quickly and smoothly. I would definitely recommend NPT and Amanda Christy to any dentist who is planning on selling their practice.

Shannon L. Moran, DDS, PA Mecklenburg County NC

I was somewhat reluctant to begin this process, NPT and in particular Dr. Fred Bacon, were able to guide me through the process. Working with Fred and NPT proved to be very rewarding, personally and financially. NPT has an extensive network of contacts, and presented only credible candidates. They were very determined to work with my many difficulties and inexperience, and guide me through to completion. I recommend NPT without reservation to anyone seeking a professional transition.

Joseph F. Dove, DDS Shelby County TN

Change is always stressful but I have learned that the right professional can mitigate the anxiety. Dan found the right match and took care of all the details. I am now looking forward to the next chapter in my career with great optimism. I could not imagine going through the process without Dan and NPT.

Alan Lichtenfeld, DDS Providence County RI

After 37 years of practice at the same location in Beavercreek, Ohio, it was time to retire. I called National Practice Transitions and spoke to Jason Gamble. I owned the multi-tenant office building where I practiced and Jason was able to find just the right buyer for my dental practice and my building at just the right price. He never gave up searching, and with his help and numerous contacts, the process went smoothly. I highly recommend Jason and National Practice Transitions when you're ready to sell your practice.

Michael C. Ross, DDS Greene County OH

NPT and Dr. Bernie Kowalski made it easy to market and sell my practice with their thorough knowledge, continual follow-up, and providing necessary advice throughout every step of the way to the closing. Thank you again.

H.V. Dalsania, DDS Lehigh County PA

Anyone looking to buy or sell a practice needs to seriously consider Scott Cabral and NPT. Scott’s in-depth knowledge of the dental profession and, even more importantly, his outstanding dedication to his clients, will make him an extremely valuable member of your transition team. Scott was always available to answer any questions or concerns and facilitated the transaction in a smooth and stress free manner. I highly recommend NPT.

John J. Darby, DDS Riverside RI

My thanks go out to Amanda Christy and National Practice Transitions. I had a hard deadline to sell my practice before moving out of state, and Amanda came through. My practice was marketed well, and she was always available to answer questions and review the process. When it came down to negotiations, her experience with all aspects of dental practice sales definitely came through. And there was no doubt Amanda was on my side! I would not hesitate to call her and NPT again for any future practice transition needs that may arise. Thanks for all your help Amanda.

Susan T. Lance, DDS Craven County NC

Working with National Practice Transitions could not have been a better experience. Dan and NPT were terrific. They were on top of all the details from the beginning and were always looking out for my best interest. Their knowledge and experience was extensive making the process easy and I cannot thank Dan and NPT enough.

Edward Donley, DMD Watertown MA

Transitioning with Jason Gamble and NPT was orchestrated with a high level of professional knowledge, efficiency, and above all compassion, during a potentially anxious time of exiting or entering a practice. I highly recommend their team!

Deborah Champion, DDS Allen County OH

We have had the pleasure of working with NPT and Amanda Christy for multiple practice sales and acquisitions over the past few years. Amanda and her team provide exceptional professional service and provide fair valuations for both Buyer and Seller. Amanda has an excellent understanding of the transition process and is extremely knowledgeable and efficient with all facets of the acquisition process. We will continue to work exclusively with NPT in the future and would absolutely recommend Amanda and NPT to colleagues for their transition needs.

Mark Tripp, DDS Mecklenberg County NC

Making the decision to sell your practice is not an easy one. However, I knew that working with Scott Cabral and his team would be much easier than trying to do things on my own. NPT did an outstanding job coordinating all the pieces and putting together the package that resulted in the sale of my practice with very little stress. I would recommend NPT to anyone considering selling or planning ahead to sell their practice.

Mary Jane Hanlon, DMD Lexington MA

When I purchased and merged a practice through you four years ago I knew I would be using your service again in the future, as I was so impressed with your skill set and the way you handled the transaction. What I did not expect was for you to sell my practice in one day, for more than the asking price, with my choice of multiple candidates before it hit the open market. I think you took ‘under promise and over deliver’ to a new level. You, Scott, and NPT have tons of experience and great contacts in the industry, but in the end it was your people skills that made the whole process so smooth and enjoyable.

Joseph A. Nash, DMD Bristol County MA

I want to thank Dr. Fred Bacon for all of your time, understanding and hard work on helping with the sale of my practice. With you being a retired dentist and having gone through a transition yourself, I felt very comfortable working with you, as well as your knowledge, on both sides of the dental business. You have a keen understanding of the expectations, the process of moving forward and the opportunities that were available that I experience during this change in my life. Your representation of all involved was invaluable.

James C. Lowman, III, DMD Elmore County AL

Thanks to NPT, my practice had a very smooth transition. Even under the best circumstances, it is a complicated process with unexpected bumps in the road. I cannot imagine having done this without NPT.

Robert Bird, Jr., DDS Litchfield County CT

I cannot thank Amanda Christy enough!! Without her the sale of my practice would have never happened, she went out of her way to make sure the sale went through coordinating I don’t know how many different people to assure the transition occurred. She always had my best interest at heart too; from dealing with a corporate group that appeared interested in the spring of 2013 to finding the Dr who ultimately purchased the practice. She was dedicated, concerned, and knowledgeable about every aspect of the process and worked tirelessly to see it through. Words cannot express how grateful I am for everything she did, when I say it could not have happened without her, I mean it. I highly, highly recommend her!!

Thomas M. Hendley, DMD Pageland SC

Dear Scott, Just a note to thank you so much for all your work on the sale of my office. You made it much easier and quicker than I could ever have imagined. This was due to your complete control over every step of the proceedings. Also your calm demeanor and total knowledge of all aspects of the sale of the practice and the real estate made the sale go flawlessly. Sharon would also like to express her gratitude for your handling of everything. She said you made her life much easier by keeping me care free during the entire process. Hope to keep in touch while I enter a new phase of life in retirement. Thanks so much again.

John A. Collins, DDS Bellingham MA

I would like to thank Jason Gamble for his guidance and help selling my practice. His efforts allowed the process to progress smoothly, and his attention to details helped the deal to close quickly.

Thomas Snashall, DDS Grove City OH

The sale and transition have been wonderful. It was smooth & very satisfying. Easy for me because 2 great, competent dentists with high integrity took over the practice. I can honestly say they are the best dentists around. Thank you Jason and NPT!

Timothy Tschanz, DDS Warren County OH

Thank you for helping us through this big transition. Now I understand the complexities of selling a practice. Again, your patience and calm were helpful. I am thankful that Jason Gamble. with NPT, worked with me to sell my practice in a timely manner. He coordinated all the people involved in the transaction and was always available to me for questions and answers. I would recommend him to help other dentists, as he is a true professional.

R. Scott Huey, DDS Kettering OH

I was very pleased with the service and results from Amanda Christy with NPT. She found a buyer for my practice in a very short time and was right there throughout the entire practice transition.

Samuel J. Randall, III, DDS Charlotte NC

I am forever grateful for the long days, weeks and months that Amanda Christy sacrificed sleepless nights with numerous text messages and phone calls to make this transaction a success for both the buyer and myself.

Joy Graves, DMD Fayetteville NC

There are times in life when a simple thanks will suffice, but I would like to truly express my most sincere gratitude to Scott Cabral, Dr. Fred Bacon and those associated with National Practice Transitions. It's easy to say that they are a great group of dental brokerage consultants that are professional, efficient, and highly effective at selling dental practices, but that would sell them short.

Reed David, DDS Gatlinburg TN

We want to thank you for your help and patience throughout this lengthy process. It is greatly appreciated!

Drs. Sumeet Saxena & Ambreen Bawa Hadley MA

I greatly appreciate all the help, guidance and understanding you gave me. Your knowledge as a dental consultant coupled with your negotiating skills as attorneys made the acquisition and transition as simple as possible.

Theodore Goldberg, DMD Watertown MA

I had been looking to transition for six years. I had enlisted five other transition companies before discovering NPT. You were the first company to come up with not just one, but two suitable buyers. You sold my practice for full value.

Thomas Williams, DDS Dayton OH

Now that the deal is done, I want to be sure that you know how valuable your representation and assistance have been in the sale of my practice. I truly feel I have been well served, carefully guided and intelligently advised at every step of the very intricate process... Please know that I sincerely appreciate all your skill, your unfailing responsiveness, and the clear focus of your interest. You are a "pro" in every sense of the word and I suspect you realize that I'm not an easy grader.

James J. Healy, DMD Sudbury MA

I retired recently after 42 years of practicing dentistry in Bristol, Connecticut. The idea of retiring was something I pushed in the back of my mind as I would deal with it when the time arose. When this occasion did occur I accumulated material from the A.D.A. and various dental practice magazines. This was a quagmire of information and I was sinking into it. I decided then to use a practice broker. I was very fortunate in selecting the NPT. Dan Baccari and Scott Cabral were extremely informative and helpful in the sale of my practice. In addition, both of them along with their office staff were very pleasant to deal with. They also aided the buyer in locating the financial resources to consummate the transaction. I highly recommend them to any dentist who is thinking of selling their practice.

Joel M. Dinowitz, D.D.S. Bristol CT

From start to finish, my entire experience with your company was a positive one. I would sincerely recommend you to any of my friends considering the sale of their practice.

Gerald Jernegan, DMD Braintree MA

After 43 years of general practice, I was fortunate to find the firm NPT to sell my practice when I was ready to retire.  I found this firm to be helpful, knowledgeable, and always available with advice and suggestions.  I must say their attention to detail and knowledge of their field resulted in a smooth and satisfying transition of my practice to the succeeding dentist.  I can heartily recommend this firm, without reservation, to anyone contemplating using their services.  I cannot imagine taking this step in my life without their professional help.


Anthony M. Martin, DDS New Bedford MA

Your help in negotiating a fair deal for both parties, smoothing out snags from the lawyers, informing the staff of the transition plan, and follow-up advice after the sale were all invaluable.

Helen Molloy, DMD Falmouth MA

I have used NPT to assist me in selling my Rhode Island practice and again to purchase my Massachusetts practice. Your integrity and effectiveness in this industry is top-notch. Before using your services I thoroughly investigated your company.

Timothy McAdams, DDS Brewster MA

If you want to work with a firm to facilitate the sale of your client's practice with amazing efficiency and professionalism, you'll never do better than NPT!  They dot the i's and cross the t's like no other.  Their ability to stay with the deal until it's done is superb.  Their efforts are worth every penny of the cost.

Paul Richards, CPA Needham MA

NPT moved my practice so fast it was truly amazing. Before I met Dan Baccari of NPT, I had listed my practice for sale with several other brokers with no luck at all and got nothing but broken promises. NPT completed what they promised in a professional manner.

Donald Macleod, DMD Falmouth MA

I am so glad a colleague suggested I give you a call! You have helped me achieve a dream I’ve held for so long. Thank you for all that you’ve done for me. The entire purchasing process was comfortable for me and a lot of that had to do with you and your integrity. Thank you so much.

Steve Goodwin, DMD Suffield CT

Working with NPT and their team made the difference in selling my practice in a timely fashion.  Their personal touch, attention to detail, resourcefulness and ability to find creative solutions to get the job done, allowed me to transition into retirement with ease.  I highly recommend NPT to any dentist who is looking for new practice opportunities or assistance with transitioning their current practice.


Jabour T. Bethoney, D.D.S. Putnum CT

I would like to thank you for your expertise with the sale of my dental practice; we truly couldn’t have done it without you.  I personally appreciate your sound advice and knowledge of all aspects of our practice transition, flexibility in accommodating our needs and the needs of prospective buyers, and the fact that you always kept me up to date with what was going on.  You made me feel like the sale of my practice was your top priority by returning all of my calls promptly, answering all of my questions honestly and without hesitation, and assisting with every aspect of the sale from market analysis to legal issues.  It was also clear that you not only had my best interest in mind, but the best interest of the buyer.  Once the practice was sold, you continued to follow up to make sure we were happy.

Thank you for your hard work and integrity.  I would highly recommend NPT to anyone thinking of buying or selling a dental practice.



Steven M. Lovelace, DMD Manchester CT

I wanted to thank you and your company from the bottom of my heart for the extraordinary job you did in selling my practice. First, you are true gentlemen. Second, the amount of time and effort you put into the sale of my practice was above and beyond what I was anticipating and expected. You were constantly available and patient.

Richard N. Harris, D.M.D. Raynham MA

My experience with Scott Cabral and National Practice Transitions was excellent. Scott more than earned his fee. His ability to formulate the deal, shepard it and then promote a smooth closing were very necessary and appreciated.

Alan L. Ross, DMD Torrington CT

It was a pleasure dealing with NPT. You were honest and pleasant and always available to deal with my questions and concerns. You were always accessible and returned every one of my calls immediately. Furthermore, you even continued to help with issues even after your part of the process was over! I would highly recommend you (NPT) for any transition needs.

Virginia Plaisted, DDS Delmar NY

Thank you again for all your help in the transition of my practice. You were "always there" when needed and made the process very smooth. It has been very easy to recommend you, without any reservation, to my friends and colleagues in the dental community.

Rick Moore, DDS Jewett City CT

Just a short note to thank you for helping me with the sale of my dental practice. Although the circumstances were somewhat difficult, the transition was made easier with your guidance.

Matthew B. Sandler, D.M.D Weymouth MA

You won’t find a better group to work with than NPT. They fulfilled all their promises and played an integral role in the sale and transition of my practice. I highly recommend them.

T. Repko, DDS Mystic CT

I want to thank you most sincerely for all your hard work with the sale of my practice. I'm really impressed and I don't impress very easily. You're a class act, making this as painless and pleasurable as could be. I would highly recommend your services to anyone!

Alan Sonn, DMD Brookfield CT

NPT was very knowledgeable about the practice I was looking at and the dental industry in the area. They were very accessible and prompt to answer questions I had.

Joshua M. Erekson, D.D.S. Charlotte NC

I would like to thank NPT and especially Dr. Fred Bacon for not giving up on the sale of my practice. I think I gave them a real challenge, but they came through with the kind of deal that suited my situation perfectly. I highly recommend NPT for any sale or transition.

Joseph M. Ross, DDS White County TN

“One of the most impressive things about Jason Gamble and National Practice Transitions is that he found me a qualified buyer in less than one month. And after the purchase agreement was complete, Jason continued to follow up to make sure that the transition was smooth. I would recommend Jason Gamble and National Practice Transitions to any doctors wishing to transition their Practice.”

The practice of Richard A. Siegel, DDS Franklin County OH

Our experience with NPT was excellent from start to finish. Amanda was wonderful to work with. She's a great communicator, responsive & did an outstanding job helping us navigate several unexpected hurdles. We had lots of questions & both Scott & Amanda were very patient with answering all of them & helping to walk us through the process. If you want a broker who is undoubtedly on your team, we can recommend Amanda Christy & NPT without reservations.

Charles H. Simpson III, DDS, PA Wake County NC

“It was good fortune that led me to meet Dan Baccari of National Practice Transitions (NPT) at Yankee Dental Congress this past January. I had my practice in the for sale category for 2+ years with no results. At Yankee I had attended several practice transition lectures and spoke with others on the exhibit floor. After extensive discussions I felt an affinity for NPT’s philosophy. They had long discussions regarding my desires, etc. and fulfilled all my expectations and more. In summary, as of June 10th my practice is sold and transferred. If you find yourself in the transition arena, it would be in your best interest to have a discussion with NPT.“

Douglas Bryans, DDS Barnstable County MA

“We just wanted to drop you a note, Rick, thanking you and NPT for your assistance in selling our dental practice. You were readily available during the whole process (from appraisal to final sale). We were particularly impressed with your negotiation skills. The deal you crafted between us (the sellers) and the buyer was a well thought-out arrangement creating a win for both parties. Again, Thank You and NPT!!"

Dr. Chris Latvis and D. John Latvis Jr Litchfield County CT

"Bernie, What more can we say but thank you! You and NPT did a wonderful job for us. We are very grateful! Best wishes to you and your family!"

Drs. Scott & Lesley Baratz

"My experience with Dan Baccari and NPT was entirely positive from the first contact through the closing of the sale of my practice. Because NPT pre-registers the buyers, Dan was able to set up interviews with nine qualified buyers within a very short time after listing my practice. I was able to consider a number of offers and select the best fit for my practice. Dan and Rick McNamara were always available to answer my questions and provide guidance. I wholeheartedly recommend NPT and Dan Baccari."

Jeanne Velde, DMD Essex County MA

Dr. Bernie Kowalski and NPT(National Practice Transitions) guided me through and greatly simplified the complex process of selling my practice. I couldn't be happier with the result and feel very confident in recommending them to anyone ready to sell their practice.                                                                                                                        Thanks again, Dr. John Roush DDS

John R. Roush, DDS Lancaster County PA

"Bernie has been diligent in the sale of my practice. I would recommend anyone looking to buy or sell their practice go through Bernie at NPT. He was readily available no matter when to show the practice every time a buyer came to the office. His commitment speaks volumes compared to some other transition companies. He was always available to answer any questions or concerns." Thank you. 

Evelyne Hanein DDS, College Hill Dental Group Easton PA

"Thanks to NPT and Jason, I have fulfilled my dream of retirement in sunny Florida. Selling a practice in a small town can be very difficult but Jason made it a very smooth transition!"

Dr. Pat Long DDS Shadyside OH

“Thank you doesn’t convey the sentiments I have for making the sale of my practice go so smoothly and with ease.  NPT exceeded and surpassed any and all expectations I could have imagined!  Besides the professional component, I am greatly appreciative of all the emotional support you have given over the past months!”        

Ron Levenbaum, DMD MI

"Making the decision to sell your dental practice is very difficult. The process of selling your practice can also be difficult. Fortunately, I had the assistance of Dan Baccari and NPT who made the process easy. They were extremely professional and knowledgeable. With their expertise and guidance, the transition was seamless. I would highly recommend Dan and NPT to anyone planning this Transition."

Joyce Siogros-Pepi, DMD Bristol County MA

“It has been more than 14 years since I began practicing dentistry in West Monroe. I witnessed the growth of many patients, and many children who grew up with me now have children of their own. I was very reluctant to turn my practice over to just any dentist. After researching practice transition companies, I selected National Practice Transitions to help me find the right doctor to work with my team and take care of the patients I care so much for. Amanda Christy listened to my needs and helped me find just the right person. The whole team at NPT were very thorough and patient with me getting ready to move on with my next career adventure. I highly recommend NPT, and especially Amanda Christy, if you are considering a change in your practice life.”

Henry A. Long, Jr., DDS Ouachita County LA

I used Choice Transitions to sell my dental practice to a DSO. They were with me every step of the way. They answered all my questions via phone, email, and text in a timely manner. I would not recommend anyone try selling to a DSO on their own. Choice’s program saved me valuable time which allowed me to focus on my practice. Their program, which requires the DSOs to pay a commission, saved me tens of thousands of dollars. I felt Choice was not all about the commission, but truly cared about me and my family and our success with the transition as well as our future. 

Dr. Tim McAdams MA

I used National Practice Transitions as my broker for the sale of my dental practice.  Richard McNamara walked me through the process from the initial valuation of the practice, step by step, through the actual sale and closing.  I found Rick and NPT to be very thorough which made the whole process, which can be quite daunting and nerve wracking, go smoothly.  Rick was always available to answer questions and prepare me for multiple steps involved in the sale.  I was very pleased with the process, the outcome and National Practice Transitions." 

Stanley H. Kessler, DDS Fairfield County CT

"After 3 years of unsuccessfully trying to sell my dental practice, I decided to use a broker.  At the recommendation of my Benco rep, I contacted Bernie Kowalski of Choice Transitions.  He referred me potential buyers within 2 months and after 6 months I had a buyer.  Bernie was always available to answer my questions whenever I called and everything was handled expeditiously and confidentially. I would recommend Bernie to anyone who is contemplating selling their dental practice.  Thank you Bernie for a job well done!"

John Bausch Jr, DDS Sussex County DE

"NPT and Bernie Kowalski did a great job in valuing and marketing my practice.  They were very efficient and professional and did find a buyer for my practice."

Dr. Lee Flinner, DMD Adams County PA

I was looking to sell my practice, but not retire completely.  Dr. Kowalski not only found the right buyer, but facilitated the entire process effortlessly.  His help continued after the sale as he followed through on several small issues.  I would recommend him highly.

Dr. Ralph Besho, DMD Middlesex County NJ

"I have had a positive experience with NPT- Choice Transitions.  On short notice, Bernie Kowalski was able to identify a dentist who was interested in becoming the custodian of my patient records.  He was very attentive and responsive to my calls and in moving the contract to successful conclusion.  I recommend him highly."

R. Lawrence Fraze, DDS Somerset County NJ

"I have been a client of Bernie Kowalski and Choice Transitions (NPT) since 2017.  He represented me in selling my practice and my wife's practice over the past years and through some difficult times.  He has been a loyal friend, a confidant and worked tirelessly for me since that time.  I highly recommend Bernie and the Choice Team." 

Dr. Michael Bone, DMD Lackawanna County PA

After trying other brokers and trying to sell my practice myself I was beginning to double that I would be able to retire.  Dr. Bacon and NPT found the perfect fit and my practice sold.  Thanks NPT.

Dr. Graham Hall Morris, DDS Shelby County TN

"The practice transition experience with Bernie and Choice Transitions exceeded all expectations.  He understood my needs and wants, took the time to listen closely to both parties, responded quickly to all communications, and closed the deal earlier than forecasted.  In the end he gave me a card which reflected who I am at my core, to put it simply he got me.  I truly appreciate everything he did to allow Esther and I an early retirement." 

Dr. Charles Harding, DMD, PC Lehigh County PA

"Dan, I want to thank you for your invaluable assistance in the sale of my practice.  As a repeat client, I can say that you have consistently been tireless in your efforts to connect me to the right people to create a win/win agreement.  I would wholeheartedly recommend Choice Transitions to anyone contemplating a practice transition of their own." 

Jack Paquette, DMD Kent County RI

"I was referred to Dan Baccari and Choice Transitions by a friend who had recently sold his dental practice.  Unequivocally, it was the best decision I could have made.  If you are serious about selling your practice, your first call should be to Dan Baccari and Choice Transitions.  You will not be disappointed."

Carl Ferreira, DMD Bristol County MA

"Transitioning out of a practice can be stressful.  But I can highly recommend Choice Transitions and Dr. Fred Bacon to assist you in your sale.  Dr. Bacon was in constant contact with me each step along the way.  He made the process easy to follow and expedited things so that they went smoothly.  This firm has done this for years, and they know what you need even before you need it.  If you are there yet or contemplating the big step, call Choice Transitions." 

Michael T. Finnern, DDS Shelby County TN

"Fred and the team at Choice Transitions/NPT were a great source for finding my ideal practice.  Fred was prompt in returning my calls and helped me set up a meet and greet with the seller and a tour of the office quickly, which was very helpful.  Thanks so much!" 

Dr. Brooklin Byrd, DDS Shelby County TN

“I recently sold my dental practice with the aid and assistance of Dr. Bernie Kowalski and Choice Transitions. I wish to compliment their entire team for job well done! From my initial conversation through closing Bernie was an honest, caring, extremely knowledgeable professional, and just about the nicest man you could have the pleasure to meet. On several occasions, he came to my practice promptly, met with both the buyer and me, and put me at ease. He responded to phone calls, texts, and emails throughout the process in a very timely manner, and was highly instrumental in navigating all of the myriad of details that go along with the sale of a dental practice. Who knew there was so much detail involved? He was able to move the sale along nicely, (until the lawyers got involved), and even then kept me on an even keel with his understanding, answers to all of my questions and even some self-induced anxieties. I am certain I made the right decision to work with Choice. I highly recommend Bernie and the entire team in general for their dedication and attention to detail.”

Guy Henry, DDS Atlantic County NJ
