Inglewood, CA.

Rod and Matt will also retain their titles and roles as Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, respectively, of the company.

Since their appointment last year to Executive Vice Chairmen, Rod and Matt have worked tirelessly to strengthen the business, refocus its strategy, improve doctor retention, and to champion both clinical and compliance initiatives.  To that end, they developed a robust strategic plan and led the construction of a new framework for the company’s growth, as it continues to support its affiliated practices in providing unparalleled quality dental care. The cornerstones of that foundation involve hiring, retaining, and investing in the best people in the dental industry who share a collective vision.  That vision is to create a leading clinically-driven, patient-centric organization, while continuously improving the culture and making the organization the best place to work.

From a growth and innovation perspective, Rod and Matt envisioned and launched the Regional Clinical Leadership (RCD 2.0) infrastructure initiative, the Marketing and Salesforce CRM initiatives, the reinvestment campaign in practices and processes, and Pediatric and Ortho expansion.  In line with InterDent’s goal to be a state-of-the-art organization, Rod and Matt implemented a new HRIS system and accelerated the rollout of additional digital equipment and technology enhancements to affiliated practices. Further, the company has made significant additional commitments to and investments in new practice openings and relocations, mobile and tele-dentistry, and integrated co-location healthcare facilities, all of which improve access to quality dental care for the communities we serve.

Growth has always been a priority of the company, and over the past year, Rod and Matt have focused the company and its management team on a commitment to attracting more patients to InterDent’s practice network. They continue to realize that vision by leveraging and integrating capabilities across the organization.

“With the support of our talented Executive Leadership Team and all our outstanding team members, Rod and Matt are ideally placed to lead the company through the next chapter of its development,” says Jason Wilson, Managing Director of Prospect Capital Management and Chairman of InterDent’s Board. “We thank Rod and Matt for their leadership and wish them success in these new roles.”
