It gives me pleasure to give credit and accolades to my friend, Roy Fruehauf, for his work and attention to the sale of my dental practice and my dental office building.

The task was a much greater challenge than I imagined, but Roy’s experience and guidance helped the process go smoothly.  What seemed like an impossibility, was soon over and we were closing escrow and shaking hands.

Through it all, I found that Roy became a friend, while staying on point with the business of seeing the process through to the end.

I can highly, without reservation, recommend Mr. Roy Fruehauf for your consulting and broker needs.

It is with much gratitude that I write this letter of endorsement for Roy Fruehauf of DDSMATCH. He efficiently orchestrated the sale of my general dental practice. The circumstances precipitating my decision to sell were based on an acute shoulder injury requiring surgery. I learned post-surgery that my recovery and return to practice would take six to twelve months. After forty-three years in practice, it was time for me to retire.

To retain the value of the practice, time was of the essence. Roy guided me through the process to acquire a Business Valuation. He found me a buyer who fit my requirements for experience, practice philosophy, personality, and character. Though totally committed to represent me, Roy assisted the buyer to move things as quickly as possible. He helped open an escrow account and was liaison between the escrow officer and lending agent. He also ensured timely and proper communication between attorneys representing me and the buyer.

Roy was masterful at quarterbacking the entire process in a timely manner. Without hesitation, I would endorse Roy Fruehauf in brokering the sale of your dental practice.

It has been my pleasure to be acquainted with Roy Fruehauf since 2015.

A great business will succeed by partnering with its customers in their successes, and no one better exemplifies this philosophy than Roy.   Roy understands that he can do well only when his customer does well, and he is determined to do everything he can to help his customers succeed.

Roy also understands the mind of a dentist.  He has been in the dental industry for decades.  He knows our history, he knows our concerns, our strengths, our weaknesses, our vulnerabilities.  Roy not only knows business, but he also knows the dental business. 

Roy does his work the way a good doctor would:  Before recommending a course of action, Roy is careful to hear the “patient’s” symptoms, concerns, and history, then gather data about the practice, then reach an assessment.  Then and only then, does he recommend a course of action.

As my career nears a close and I anticipate my own practice transition, I’m certain that Roy’s technical knowledge of dentistry, as well as his leadership ability and his unquestioned integrity, will serve his practice transition clients well.

It gives us great pleasure to recommend Roy Fruehauf. Roy was attentive and hardworking when it came to looking for a buyer for our periodontal practice.

Due to our individual circumstances of needing to find a buyer quickly he worked with us tirelessly in contacting a list of periodontists we thought might be interested in a well-established practice. He was professional, thorough, and accurate, while keeping in close contact with prospective buyers.  He made himself available evenings and weekends for questions and phone calls.

Due to his diligence, he was able to finalize the sale of the practice 2-3 weeks earlier than the closing date that was originally proposed.  Roy was able to accomplish this because of his continuous follow-up with the attorneys (purchase agreement paperwork), escrow company, with us (sellers) and the buyer. He stayed on top of all requests generated from the buyer in a timely manner, and was able to provide all the data and reports for the sale to become finalized.

I highly recommend Roy Fruehauf of if you are looking for the services of a dental broker who will get the job done.

Respectfully yours,

Dr Ralph Vandersloot & Dr. Lucille Guastella

“Thanks to all the endless help from Roy, I am thrilled to say that we are now officially retired!”

My wife & I chose Roy because of his experience with practice sales and his warm genuine personality.  He listened to our needs and always considered our best interests.  

When we found our ‘DDS Match’, Roy guided us through the funding and transition process.   He was available and responsive.   We are thrilled with our new Dentist owner, which makes stepping away from our practice even more satisfying.

We highly recommend using a specialist like Roy for your practice sale / transition.

Roy Fruehauf at DDSmatch was a pleasure to work with for the sale of my dental practice in Roseville, California. In the dynamically changing environment of dentistry, the decision to sell a dental practice comes with excitement, fears, and concerns with finding the proper buyer to fulfill one’s personal transition goal and legacy. It is certainly not a one size fits all negotiation from either party. It can be costly and time consuming without the guidance of a talented broker to procure the appropriate collection of buyers.

The next level of frustrations are the steps to Final Sale. Roy and his company provided a thorough certified practice valuation, and from there forward, Roy took the reins and helped to secure a lender for the buyer and walked me through each phase of the selling process.  He counseled me on when to hold off on including attorneys to avoid unnecessary charges and took charge of communicating with the buyer and their attorney.

Roy was kind and compassionate during the entire process and kept negotiations moving forward in a timely fashion. He made an overwhelming process as seamless as possible!

Thank you for everything Roy!
