Steve Taylor

 Tavern Street DP – 2017

During the sale of our practice I found the service provided by Helen Cheskin to be outstanding.  Helen was always knowledgeable, available and provided me with great advice throughout the process.  Helen was prepared to listen sympathetically to my whining without complaint, a real angel.  Helen’s help and hard work was very much appreciated and I recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell their dental practice.

 Peasholm DP – 2016

After considering the market, we engaged Lily Head Practice Sales to sell our Dental Practice earlier this year and we have been extremely impressed with their unique service.  Lily is dynamic, knowledgeable and professional.  She takes a personal interest in her clients and is very proactive.  Communication is a key skill in this business and Lily is one of the best – she maintained a dialog with ourselves, our lawyers and our chosen purchasers throughout our sale and was always well informed. We cannot thank Lily and her wonderful team enough for all their efforts on our behalf.

Dr Jonathan Taylor

 Savernake Forest DP – 2016

I am indebted to Lily Head Practice Sales for their achievement in not only seeing the real value in my practice but having a good number of competing parties ready to view.  Lily & Helen orchestrated negotiations with skill and tact to achieve an excellent outcome not just for me but for my staff and colleagues.  Lily has more than earned her fee with the price she secured, thanks to her expert knowledge of the market, her personal attention and the dedicated team she has alongside her.

Richard Langley

 Owlsmoor Dental Practice – 2016

Lily Head and her great team did a brilliant job for us when we sold our practice earlier this year.

Their service is extremely professional, very helpful and great value for money.

We have no hesitation in highly recommending Lily and her team to any other dentists who wish to sell or have their practice valued.

N. Habashi BDS

London – 2015

Having been to another agent and not been particularly impressed, I had all but decided not to sell when someone recommended Lilly Head. There was no comparison. Within a week the practice was sold well in excess of the asking price as interest was so fierce. She remained closely involved throughout the whole sale process, and ensured things kept moving along. We recently completed, and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Lily.

Dr David Downes-Powell

We were very impressed with Lily Head when she visited our Dental Practice. Lily was professional and gave us plenty of her time to discus our Dental Practice and requirements in depth in order to understand the best ways to market it.

All our dealings with Lily and her office subsequently were handled in a very satisfactory way.

Dr David Hefferon: Ella Dental, Harley Street

2011

Lily Head acted for me in the recent sale of my practice and I have no reservation in giving this recommendation. Lily was one of four agents employed by myself for this sale. The first one took two months to even get me on their website and offered no service and no feedback was ever given on the clients viewing. One never sent anybody, one took £800 for a practice evaluation in November 2010 of which I still wait for. He was always getting around to it. Lily however, took time to talk to myself and find out exactly what type of practice I had and also was able to provide me with details of any potential buyers and ensured that only quality buyers viewed my practice and sieved out any tyre kickers. Her feedback was always very prompt and detailed. When the buyer did decide to proceed she ensured that the Heads of terms were drawn up immediately and checked at all times with myself and the buyer that everything was completed efficiently. Like any sale there were the inevitable hiccups when solicitors are involved. Whenever difficulties were encountered I only had to phone lily and she phoned all the relevant parties to get things moving again. At all stages Lily has acted with integrity and absolute professionalism and ensured that she knew each party involved and acted in the interests of the sale at all times. She was a delight to work with and instilled confidence in both parties at all times. She showed an interest in the sale which was missing from the other agents as they seemed only interested in a fee and it was a pleasure to deal with Lily as an agent and I which her every success with her agency and would strongly recommend her to any future seller.

90 Harley Street, London, W1G 7HS – September 2012

Dear Lily, thank you for your efforts on my behalf. Selling a practice, which one has spent a large amount of one’s professional life is an emotional experience. I appreciated the personal service you gave me and your advice which made our successful sale easier for me. I would be more than happy to recommend you to any of my coleagues who are considering retiring.

Catherine Thomas

Specialist in Endodontics, Fairford, Gloucestershire

I was introduced to Lily by a Dental colleague when I was trying to sell my Private Dental Practice at 90 Harley Street, London. Lily Head Practice Sales did indeed sell the practice for me. On a personal level I found Lily to be approachable, enthusiastic about her work and above all supremely professional. She was a pleasure to deal with, extremely knowledgeable and full of vitality. Lily Head Practice Sales handled the valuation and sale of my dental practice in the most efficient manner. They not only found me a buyer, but several! I was also grateful for their very good connections and recommendations for lawyers, bankers etc which smoothed the whole sale process, and the way everyone co-ordinated and kept in touch. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lily Head Practice Sales to any colleague considering the sale of their dental practice, and already have!

Jonathan Hyman

At the age of 65 I decided to sell my practice and I was very lucky to have a dental colleague who recommended Lily Head. He has successfully sold his practice using Lily as his agent and could not have spoken more highly of her. I approached Lily who was very supportive as I was not sure about how to proceed. Lily’s approach was very professional and after we met and the practice was valued it duly went on the market. We had a number of viewings and I am happy to report that a delightful lady bought my practice and I am now working two days a week as an Associate. Selling a practice takes time and Lily was always there to help and support me. I could not speak more highly of her.

Julian Unter (BDS(Lond)

LDS RCS (Eng)

We contacted Lily having tried to market our large practice with another agent unsuccessfully. Lily is very approachable and efficient. She kept in touch with us and our purchasers throughout the process ensuring there were no problems. We were delighted when our sale completed in June 2014.

Martin Booyens

2010

Lily Head acted as my agent to sell my large dental practice in 2010. My solicitor that specializes in the dental business advised me to use Lily as “Lily gets things done!” This was certainly good advice and very true! I can certainly recommend Lily to help you sell or buy your dental practice

Michael Wise BDS FDS RCS (Eng) MScD (Indiana)

Specialist in Restorative Surgery Specialist in Oral Surgery – 2011

I engaged Lily Head Practice Sales to sell my specialist practice following virtually no response from a bigger agency.  Lily was extremely proactive in her marketing providing several buyers within a few weeks.  Lily provided superb support at all times, and removed the pressure of negotiation. Lily was helpful, knowledgeable and approachable. I was extremely satisfied with the service that she provided me and I am happy to recommend her to any colleagues who wish to sell their dental practice.

Tooth Doctor (UK) Ltd

Lily & Helen have been outstanding, from not only helping us find a practice but have stayed connected all the way throughout. Compared to other agents they are miles ahead in terms of understanding our needs but also supporting us through what for us is a very big life changing decision. Lily helped me source some of the best contacts in the industry. In particular they recommended a legal firm which have also been outstanding. The friendly and professional approach is something that all other companies in all sectors should learn from. The knowledge and connections Lily and her team have are just outstanding! I will always come back to them!

Dr Amir Savage

2016

“I would recommend Helen Cheskin at Lily Head Practice Sales to any dentist or practitioner looking at buying a practice. Although instructed by the practice vendor, I found her to be  an excellent negotiator and managed to find a mutually acceptable solution for both seller and myself resulting in a highly successful sale”.

Russell Abrahams – Abrahams Dresden – Dental Solicitors

2016

“We have worked on a number of dental practice deals brokered by Lily, including some exceptionally large and complex matters.  Lily and her team are always focused on the end game, i.e. an equitable completion of the sale.  With their unique blend of dogged determination, good humour and commercial outlook, it is always a pleasure working with Lily Head Practice Sales.”

Ronak and Priya Patel

Ice Dental, Northants – 2011

Dear Lily, We wanted to say a very big thank you for all of your help in selling our practice.You really helped in taking the stress out of the sale. We were extremely happy with the service you provided, you gave a personal touch that was amazing! When we were introduced to you we liked your “can-do” no-nonsense attitude instantly! You also gave us very good, sound advice when it came to values and selling and you helped us get a very good price for the practice – something for which we cannot thank you enough! So once again a very big thank you for everything you have done and the personal touch you provided over the large companies and we highly recommend that everyone should buy and sell their practice through

Richard Wozniak BDS

2010

Jan 2011: The sale of a dental practice is a life changing event and will therefore inevitably be stressful.However Lily’s support, kindness and sense of humour made the experience at least bearable. At the same time her exemplary professionalism, efficiency and hard work achieved a result beyond our expectations.I cannot recommend this ethical and effective lady highly enough.

Dr Dale Swallow BDS (Hons) MSc

2012

Dear Lily, just a note to say thank you for your patience and understanding in the recent purchase of a Central London dental practice which was brokered through your company. Although the transaction took 7 months due to the new CQC Regulations due to your patience, understanding and trust the transaction was guided through by your company as smoothly as I think could have been possible due to all obstacles we now face in now purchasing a Dental Practice. In fact, I do believe if it wasn’t for your personal touch coaxing both parties (seller and purchaser) the transaction surely would have never of happened. Once again many thanks and I wish you all the success for the future.

Dr John Stephens, Cavendish Dental, Cheshire

February 2013

Hi Lily, as you know my dental practice sale completed today and I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and guidance during the whole procedure. From the initial valuation meeting, to marketing the practice and finding a suitable buyer, I felt that your drive and enthusiasm would get us through to a successful conclusion. I also appreciated the weekly updates by email and regular phone calls to find out exactly how viewings had gone. No other agencies that I had previously used could match up to your personal touch in any way. I would be very happy to recommend your services to any other dentists who want to sell their practice.

Chris Emery

2015

I would like to thank Lily and all her splendid team for their efforts in selling my Specialist Endodontic practice. I always imagined it would be difficult to find a suitable buyer for such a niche practice but they certainly put my fears at rest. The whole process was extremely atraumatic and managed by the team quite seamlessly. I know that my buyer had the same experience with you, and we both feel extremely fortunate that your efforts have united us as a practice that is now owned by my new friend and buyer, for whom I work as a part time Associate. I really felt after more than forty years of running a practice and ‘being in charge’, that this change would be difficult. However I feel very comfortable and relaxed in my new role, and my new Boss has taken to her role as practice owner and principle with great enthusiasm and expertise, mainly down to your team’s efforts and expertise.

Steve Farnell

Wearside Orthodontic Centre 2016

Thanks, initially, for braving the inclement weather and meeting up on that very snowy January evening to visit my dental practice and discuss its future. It was important for me to deal with a company with a personal feel, and not be treated as just a number in a catalogue and this was clearly evident towards the closing of the deal.

Lily’s expansive background in the dental field provides an excellent base on which to easily discuss individual practices’ requirements, without having to explain the nuances of dental business.

It has been a pleasure working with Lily, James and the rest of their sales team.

Nigel Olesen

Gallery Implants, Oxford

Many thanks for your help and guidance through the sale process of my practice. Your availability by mail or phone was a constant reassurance and much appreciated.

Nicholas Morton

Wayside Dental Practice, 2 Douglas Road, Harpenden, Herts, AT5 2JN – September 2013

I would just like to recommend wholeheartedly Lily Head and Lily Head Practice Sales. Lily and her team have been magnificent in dealing with my impending sale. I have no doubt without her help with my difficult sale, I would have been in a very poor position now.

John and Simon Fehr

Dentalia 2017

As Dental Engineers with no meaningful knowledge of dentistry, selling a dental practice was a daunting prospect.  Having already had a sale fall through with another agent, we turned to Lily Head Practice Sales.  This turned out to be the game changer for us.  Abi Greenhough at Lily Head Practice Sales, understood our somewhat unusual position and requirements and moved quickly to market our business.  Abi soon found us several suitable buyers and held our hands whenever we needed it.  The whole process was completed in eight weeks.  I would unreservedly recommend Lily Head Practice Sales to any Principal considering selling their Dental Business.

Mike Spencer-Harty

Channings Dental 2016

Thanks Abi for all your help with my recent dental practice sale.  I am sure that your expert knowledge, short response times and your availability during the week, and even at weekends did much to speed up the transaction.  I am still a bit shell shocked at how quickly it all went through.

I think we could not have done better with the final purchaser as he is exactly the sort of person who I hoped would take on a practice I have spent most of my career building up.

Judith Denning

2016

Lily Head Practice Sales recently marketed and sold my dental practice.  Lily herself is very professional and knowledgeable about the dental market. Most importantly she understands that each practice is unique, and excels in matching her clients with the right purchaser.  Lily and her team were wonderful providing support along all the different stages of the sale.  I do not hesitate to recommend their services to any dental practice owner who wishes to sell their practice, now or in the future.

Dr Barinder Dhinsa

Helen Cheskin was fantastic in helping us buy our dental practice. Helen was friendly, transparent, informed, professional and always able to deal promptly with any queries we had.  It was clear that Helen had also earned a very high level of trust form the vendor of the dental practice I purchased.  We have no hesitation in recommending that anyone who wishes to buy a dental practice should register with Lily Head Practice Sales

John Grant

Goodman Grant, Dental Lawyers

The view of one of our expert colleagues in the Practice Transaction Process.

“Lily and her team are a combination of boundless energy and genuine care for their clients. Lily combines her unique personal touch with a deep and intimate knowledge of the dental practice sales market.

I know of no one who works harder on their client’s behalf or who does more to help both sellers and buyers achieve their ambitions.

They are a pleasure to work with.”

Dr Shiranth Fernando, Rochester

2012

Dear Lily, I am writing to thank you for helping me to sell my dental practice. If it was not for your guidance and good humour, I very much doubt that it would have gone through so quickly. I particularly appreciate the fact that you were always contactable 24/7 and ready to help.

Dr Liz Fiddaman, Zebon Copse Dental, Hampshire

October 2012

Dear Lily, thank you for introducing my buyer. You found the right person for me and my patients. Everything’s wrapped up neatly and I’m sure I’ll sleep well tonight. The service you gave was personal and, as Richard did, I would recommend you to my colleagues.

Matthew Jones, Portland DP, Southampton

2012

Lily got me through the complexities of selling my Practice, keeping me calm along the way – whatever time I emailed her with yet another question a reply came back within minutes. Lily has also access to many contacts needed to help the process through and she was very good at liaising between both sets of solicitors. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Dani Mancuso

‘’Words cannot express the gratitude I have for the service you provide in helping me to find my dream practice.

I was impressed that you were there for me at my convenience and able to solve all issues very promptly. Your personalized service and advice made this transaction a comfortable and pleasant experience.
We know without a doubt that you were meant to be in our paths to find the right practice, with a dream team and an amazing principal that generously put himself in a position to stay on post to guide us to the same prospect and bright professional future.
If someone were to ask me to recommend a practice seller, hands down we would recommend you ten times over.
Thanks for all your help!!!!
Dani Mancuso.’’

Bill Whateley

Dolphins Dental, Torquay

Earlier this year, I asked Lily to handle the sale of my practice because I felt, as the owner of a smaller agency, she would better understand the ups and downs of a small business. She undertook the task with great enthusiasm and good humour, being very professional in her approach. In the event she opened up prospects that had previously been hidden and found a buyer. When the process became over-encumbered with detail and slowed down, she ably stepped in and moved it along. I have been delighted with her service and am more than happy to recommend her to my colleagues.

Dr Dipen Patel

April 2011

A big thankyou to Lily!
Lily was a major catalyst in the recent purchase of my practice and was great at sorting things out to get the deal done! Without her help there was no way the deal would have been concluded She’s always there for help/advice and a pleasure to talk to. Her professionalisn is second to none. Shes never too busy to talk to you and chase things up when required! I would like to thank her for her kindness and for all she has done for me. I couldnt recommend anyone better than Lily at her job!!

Dr Wineetha Perera LDSRCS (Edin)

Dental Surgeon Vendor

Dear Lily I am so relieved that the process of selling my dental practice was successfully concluded yesterday, and wish to acknowledge that this was due, in a major way to your personal involvement on a day to day basis, ensuring that all the essential communication was maintained at all times between all parties involved in the sale and purchase. I am very impressed by your exemplary service and have no hesitation in recommending your agency to any colleagues contemplating the sale of their practice. Thank you for your professionalism and friendly manner shown throughout the process.

Dr S Malhan & Dr Y Solanki

We have known Lily for some years now through the Dental industry and we have had the pleasure of her talent when we have wished to sell or purchase dental practices. Lily has always been discreet and trustworthy while attending to our business needs. We have no hesitation in using Lily in the future to continue doing business.

Mark Santa-Olalla

Gordons Law

I have worked with Lily, Helen and the team on a number of transactions over the years both on behalf of the sellers and buyers.  As a solicitor in the sale process I have a different perspective to dentists who are themselves selling and buying.  My role is to co-ordinate a number of different processes and individuals to conclude the transaction as quickly as possible and in a fully professional manner.  Lily and Helen with whom I normally deal have always been very proactive in working towards this goal.  They facilitate negotiations between the parties and their advisors that cannot be undertaken by the solicitor because of his professional role on behalf of one or other of the parties. To that extent they provide a vital link to assist transactions that have stalled and help them over the line.  It is always a pleasure doing business with the Lily Head sales team.
