“Phil Kolodynski was very efficient. He gathered information so that he could provide a valuation range, which was surprisingly attractive at almost double what I had thought it would be worth. Dental Elite put a presentation together and already had a list of buyer clients in mind. Within a couple of weeks, we had four viewings, followed by three offers – one of which we accepted. Dental Elite provided a lot of support throughout the entire process, and after completion. This helped to ensure that I received the full payment. I would definitely recommend Dental Elite to others. If you’re considering selling, get a valuation with them – it may make your mind up for you about whether to proceed!"
Jonny Swift
“We chose Dental Elite after we initially had the practice on sale with another agent who had overvalued the practice. I worked with Phil Kolodynski then Carl Wetton. They were both highly professional and helped guide us through the sales process.”
Stephen Potter
“Dental Elite were so professional, knew their numbers and had dealt with similar sales situations like mine before. They filled me with confidence. They also had the invaluable experience and contacts needed for a smooth process. It was an amazing experience. Phil Kolodynski immediately understood my requirements and was always at the end of the phone, day or night, weekend or even on holiday! I was very happy with the deal he achieved. If you’re thinking of selling, don’t think twice – use Dental Elite!”
Pujan Soni
“I worked with Phil Kolodynski, and it was a superb experience. I accepted the offer as the terms were fair and the buyer plans for future growth. I chose Dental Elite over other agencies because they offered me good advice, were on-hand at every step of the way and helped me gain the best price for the sale. There was also no pressure to sell. It was a smooth, stress-free transaction!”

Combined with running large practices and her financial acumen Julie has the perfect transferable skills for a Dental Broker at Dental Elite.
“I have tried to sell my practice before and never really liked how other brokers approached me as a client, but when I spoke with Julie Randle I had a gut feeling that she was the right person to sell my practice. Dental Elite found me the right buyer who would approach dentistry the way I do. Selling your practice can be a very stressful process and I absolutely relied on Julie, especially when there were major renegotiations. I can’t praise Dental Elite highly enough, right from initial valuation to doing viewings and through to completion they were absolutely excellent. I would heartily recommend Dental Elite to others.”
Mike Elrich
"We chose Dental Elite over other companies due to the team being approachable, knowledgeable and caring. Julie Randle was our initial and main point of contact throughout the process; from creating the package, liaising with potential buyers, and updating us through the early stages. Carl Wetton assisted us during the latter stages, from a financial point, which proved effective and very worthwhile for us. Another big bonus was that in the last few days before completion, Julie reviewed the figures and, due to an increase in EBITDA, successfully added another 8% on to the agreed price! We would highly recommend Dental Elite to other practices who are considering a sale."
Amy Hill
“My situation was slightly different, but I found Julie Randle to be extremely professional, helpful and sympathetic to my circumstances. Helen Craine and Lottie McBean were also efficient and effective at progressing the sale forward, as well as keeping me informed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dental Elite’s services for their efficiency, empathy, competency and professionalism.”

Michelle Bates
“Dental Elite handled the sale of my practice superbly from even before the sale went live. I was guided through every step and stage including the process of changing the NHS contract. They found me a really friendly couple to buy the practice, suggested a superb team of lawyers. All the while making sure momentum was kept up. I would highly recommend Phil, Carl and their team to organise the sale of any practice.”
