What Our Clients Say About Us
I wish there were 10 stars because I would give Todd and Sheryl 11. I never imagined that working through the transition and retirement process could be so pleasant. That happened because of Todd and Sheryl Garfinkel who so patiently and completely worked through the many steps necessary for something like this to happen. I almost wish we could do it again as I feel as though I met 2 new people whose friendship I now cherish. They could not have been more thorough and pleasant to work with. For any dentist contemplating retirement or bringing on an associate, I would recommend that they look no further because they won’t find any more knowledgeable or friendly professionals to work with. Thanks Todd and Sheryl.
—Dr. Philip T.
Todd and Sheryl Garfinkel were a top notch team from the start to the completion of transitioning my dental practice. They were knowledgeable in all facets of the process, including the emotional component! Todd was transparent, accessible, and personable in every interaction. He alway had my best interests at the forefront. Sheryl was patient, efficient, and diligent assembling needed records and documentation.
In this specialized field, Todd and Sheryl have my highest regards as two consummate professionals. I recommend them without hesitation.

I was referred to ddsmatch through a friend of mine who had also used their services. Prior to signing the contract with Todd and Sheryl I had been with another broker for one year with no success in selling my practice.
What I liked about Todd and Sheryl is their professionalism, the fact that they are very resourceful and knowledgeable in the field. Selling a practice can be just as stressful and overwhelming as building a new practice, but Todd and Sheryl made my experience and the transition very pleasant and easy, especially with the strict criteria of having a very short transitional period that I had put forth. Throughout the whole process Todd and Sheryl were always very available, even when they were out of town. Another thing that’s worth mentioning is that I never felt pressured to do anything that I didn’t want to do.
I highly recommend ddsmatch to any dentist or dental specialist who wants to sell or slowly phase out of his/her practice.
—Dr. Shadi S.
Dear Sheryl and Todd, I was very pleased with the entire experience of selling my practice through your company, from the very beginning of meeting you to the very end of signing the contract. I was explained the initial agreement in clear terms, and I was never pressured to do anything I did not feel comfortable with. All of the terms in the agreement were met in full and I did not spend additional money or faced hidden costs. When you introduced me to potential buyers, you had my best interests in mind and again I did not feel that you were pressuring me into something I didn’t feel comfortable with. I was also very pleased with your professional referrals. When you found the right person to purchase my business, you developed a draft of the sale together with the attorney that you also recommended and you helped me during the negotiations and reviews of the draft of the final agreement. All in all, the transition of the business ownership was handled very smoothly and professionally. I felt that I was well-supported throughout the whole deal.
—Dr. Nina A.
Todd and Sheryl spent a considerable amount of time interacting with the lawyers and buyer through the processes of negotiating the letter of intent and purchase agreement and executing the final settlement. Nothing fell through the cracks as they were attuned to all the details and a timely resolution of outstanding matters. They are very experienced and handled the sale in a logical, comprehensive manner. I was quite impressed with the professionalism of Todd and Sheryl and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
—Dr. Michael R.
I used Todd and Sheryl Garfinkel of DDSMatch for the sale of my practice. They were able to find a buyer through his access to an extensive network of contacts. Once the potential buyer was found, his exceptional focus, facilitation, and communication throughout the entire process for both me and the buyer proved to be invaluable. After using several brokers without success there is no question that Todd and Sheryl were the key.
—Dr. Marc F.
I am so happy with Todd & Sheryl Garfinkel and ddsmatch. I have spent years trying to find quality dentists to join our group. It has been hit or miss and very time consuming. They were both very attentive and brought me great candidates within days of engaging their services. They understand the process and are very professional and easy to work with. I only wish I had met them sooner.
—Dr. Debbie T.
Dear Todd and Sheryl, The intricacies involved in selling my practice were monumental and you managed the process beautifully. Your network of legal, financial and accounting professionals necessary to bring completion to the sale cut right through what could have been a multitude of more decisions I would have to make. Everyone worked seamlessly in partnership and I can’t thank you enough for putting together such a high-quality team. Stepping away from 34-years of practicing dentistry (29-years in my own practice) was more of an emotional rollercoaster than I anticipated. You both were there to support me, at all hours of the day, with sage advice and wisdom gained from your experiences with other retiring dentists. Your personal level of service is rarely found in today’s business world. Once I signed a contract with ddsmatch I was amazed at how quickly the sale process moved ahead. The timing was exactly right for me and it is my wholehearted pleasure to recommend you to others contemplating retiring or purchasing a practice.
—Dr. Joseph P.
My experience with ddamatch has been such a positive experience. The journey of a practice transition can be extremely exciting, but it can also be immensely stressful and overwhelming. In my situation, the transition wasn’t your typical path, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic being thrown into the formula.
Despite the circumstances . . . Todd and Sheryl truly helped me navigate through it all. With so many questions and anxious moments, they were readily available and always presented thoughtful and positive responses that encouraged me to see the transition through. They were extremely knowledgeable about every step of the transition, and . . . they utilized every resource they had to deliver timely answers without losing momentum.
I feel I was working with good friends. Better yet, it felt like family. Because from day one, which I vividly remember being a scary moment for me, I felt cared for.
If my colleagues or other doctors that I meet in life are prepared for a transition, I will emphatically share that ddsmatch is the best way to go. Thank you Todd and Sheryl.
