Testimonials


Margaret Shaw, DDS

Ovilla Family Dentistry

“Sharmyn came along at the perfect time in my dental career and helped me take my practice to the next level. We bought the building that my practice is in and ramped it up with Sharmyn’s help! We are a fee-for-service practice so she showed us how to maximize that model without having to sign up for any insurance plans. There is no way my practice would be what it is today without Sharmyn. I am very grateful for all of her help!”

Jonathan C Clemetson, DDS P.A.

Personalized Dentistry

I was introduced to Sharmyn by referral (one of the best and most complementary ways i think to find resources). I was very pleased with the pleasant and upbeat approach of the company. When they came to my practice I finally knew what it is was like to relax and watch the (overdue and well needed) systems they put in place take my practice in a direction that I have always wanted it to go.

“I would recommend Sharmyn to anyone especially if they have never run a business before – it will help you to sleep better at night – it did for me.

Schubert Sapian, DDS

Essential Dental Care

“When I started a practice from scratch there were so many problems to fix. I’m so glad that Sharmyn and her team were there to help. They are professionals and are experts at what they do. They are very thorough and won’t stop until they produce good results. I trust them and highly recommend them to anyone!”  


Bryan Carmichael, DDS

Watauga Dental Center

“I’ve been a dentist for 11 years now, and have worked at over 40 offices before settling on one and becoming an owner. During that time period, I’ve come across some extremely successful offices and saw how they operated.”

“Since then, I’ve stumbled upon Sharmyn with Wingspan Transitions and have worked with her for 2.5 years as an associate, as well as an owner.  I must say, the same principles and operations she has implemented for the practice I purchased are the same principles and operations I’ve seen in place at every single one of the extremely successful offices I have come across. In fact, in the 2.5 years that we’ve worked together, I don’t think we’ve ever disagreed on the right approach forward. We have more than doubled the production numbers for the practice I purchased, with her guidance. She comes HIGHLY recommended!”

Lorena P. Scott, DDS

Toyota Family Health Center

“Sharmyn is reliable and result oriented. She came into my life as a consultant many years ago and remains in my life as a good friend. I highly recommend her.

Jeff Jenkins, DDS

Smiles of Fort Worth

“I cannot say enough about how much Sharmyn has helped me over the years. She started as a coach for myself and my staff. After I decided to make a career change, I mentioned to Sharmyn that I needed to sell my 2 offices and she found the buyers in about 4 weeks.  Sharmyn was there every step of the way to facilitate the process and get the closing done as soon as possible. She even stayed on as a consultant for the new owners to help with the transition for the staff.  Sharmyn was incredible through the whole process.”  


John McNeff, DDS

Watauga Dental Center

In 2009, my practice was dependent on HMO/DMO insurance companies. Sharmyns management of the change to a fee for service practice made the transition seamless. Her knowledge of how dental offices operate and function made it possible to expand the business to the point of needing an associate dentist.

 “When I wanted to retire, I asked Sharmyn if she knew anyone who could help. Sharmyn responded, Of course, I do transitions also. Her knowledge and experience allowed for an easier turnover of the associate dentist to a potential buyer. Then she guided the team to expand the business in the direction needed for the new owner. When the banks stretched the eventual sale date several months past my formal retirement, Sharmyn managed my interests in my absence. I would highly recommend Sharmyn Long Olivares.
