What Avail Clients Are Saying (Full Testimonial)…
I recently acquired the services of Darren Shanahan at Avail Dental Exit Advisory Services Inc. to complete the sale of my dental office. Darren’s knowledge of the dental market in Alberta was an asset to determining the fair market valuation of my office that was agreeable to the buyers. Darren’s experience and skills in closing was invaluable to completing the deal that usually involves the landlord, accountants, lawyers, buyers, and the sellers.

What I usually tell people is that if you want true perspective on the value of your clinic based on numbers and real bank experience, Darren is your man. He has an understanding of what the bank is looking for and that’s the real value of your clinic. He is very well known here in Calgary and in Alberta and thus has a lot of motivated buyers and sellers at his disposal.

Darren and his company were top notch professionals when it came to selling my practise. The evaluation was very thorough and completed in a timely manner. The experience was very personable and I was treated like more then just a client. Darren wanted me to be rewarded for my 29 years of building a practise, and to get top dollar for my hard work and growing of the practise. Darren was caring and supportive in the negotiations of the practise to achieve a smooth transition. He continues to communicate with me as I transitioned from an owner to an associate. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their practise!

I would highly recommend Darren Shanahan and Avail to any dentist looking to sell or buy a practice. I had a great experience in both cases. Darren was knowledgeable, communicative and very helpful. Thank you Darren for making my transitions as easy and straight forward as possible.
~ Dr. Erin Ellis
I had used a competitor to initially sell my practice. After a year and really very little interest, I decided to follow up on a recommendation to meet with Darren Shanahan. Immediately I knew I was working with the right guy! Darren was very personable, engaging, and knowledgeable about the buying and selling of dental practices. He quickly brought only interested and qualified buyers, which was most appreciated. In addition, once the purchaser was serious, he made every step of the process simple. I was able to confidently leave every aspect of the deal in his hands. Darren did a lot of running around getting signatures and taking care of the small stuff removing all the stress from me. He had a way of making both parties comfortable and confident that the process was working and that it was a win/win. Selling your business is a huge endeavour. Having a guy like Darren in your court, priceless. I couldn’t have done it without him, and I couldn’t recommend him more highly.

I have had the fortunate opportunity to buy and also sell with the expert guidance of Mr Darren Shanahan. The details in mediating between buyer and seller was always handled with the utmost care and discreetness. Mr Shanahan’s vast wealth of contacts and knowledge of the dental industry in Calgary is also truly amazing. I greatly appreciate the honesty and directness of his guidance, as well as his acumen for placing a fair market value for both buyer and seller. There is truly no one better in Calgary to guide a successful practice transition.

I can’t say enough about Darren and Yvette what great people, they genuinely care about their clients.
I purchased my practice from Avail in 2018, Darren was amazing. Being that this was my first practice I required more support than most buyers might. Darren was always there to guide me. He connected us with leading industry specialists that excelled our knowledge and understanding of the business side of owning a practice.
I would highly recommend Avail to anyone looking for trusted dental advice.
