INGLEWOOD, Calif. (July 26, 2016) – InterDent Service Corporation (InterDent), one of the nation’s leading Dental Support Organizations (DSO), has hit the 200th location benchmark with the opening of a new Gentle Dental office in Placentia, California. A provider of non-clinical, business support services to independent group dental practices, InterDent supports the following brands: Gentle Dental, Dedicated Dental, Capitol Dental, Smile Keepers and Blue Oak.
Gentle Dental, a group of independent dental practices operating under the Gentle Dental brand, is the largest brand supported by InterDent with 168 locations throughout the Western United States. Gentle Dental-affiliated providers offer comprehensive general and specialty dental services, including pediatric, orthodontic and emergency dentistry. With InterDent’s non-clinical business support services provided to all Gentle Dental-affiliated locations, the dentists and hygienists are able to focus on providing optimal patient care.
Gentle Dental has built its reputation by opening new locations and affiliating with dentists throughout the Western United States who prefer to focus their attention on patients rather than the business aspects of their practices. The Gentle Dental brand continues to grow as the demand for consistent, high-quality and cost-friendly dentistry rises.
“Achieving this milestone is evidence that the industry is changing, and that our business model is the future of dentistry,” said InterDent’s Chief Clinical Officer Dr. Jeffrey Sulitzer. “Because we have a multi-site, centrally-supported business model, we are able to offer more flexibility when it comes to scheduling appointments and payment options. Plus, since we typically have multiple affiliated locations in each of the markets we serve, patients have access to a greater selection of licensed and experienced dentists, hygienists and specialists.”
As part of a multi-site, full-service network of independent dental practices, the dentists affiliated with InterDent supported practices have formed a clinical advisory board that provides the opportunity for professional interaction, ensuring that best practices are identified and guidance is provided to local teams. As part of this powerful “network” of dental practices, patients can expect to receive consistently high-quality treatments from a carefully selected staff of dental professionals who listen closely to them and shape services around their needs. Concurrently, dentists and hygienists benefit from long-term training, increased job opportunities, and a progressive career path with clinical and management tracks to suit their ambitions.
