PepperPointe Partnerships has expanded outside of Kentucky for the first time, partnering with orthodontists and pediatric dentists in the New York market.
PepperPointe Partnerships announced an expansion into New York with the addition of eight orthodontic and pediatric dental practices, 10 doctor partners, and 20 office locations.
The expansion marks the first group of practices supported by PepperPointe outside the state of Kentucky.
The added locations bring PepperPointe’s total to 110 locations, served by nearly 1,000 team members and serving 275,000 patients in Kentucky and New York.
“We are so excited to welcome these new practices with like-minded and courageous doctors into our organization and humbled by what this means for the patients and communities they serve,” said Greg White, DMD, PepperPointe chief executive officer and president. “From cost savings to our collaborative doctor network to creating ownership opportunities for associate doctors, we have experienced tremendous success and growth to date. ”
PepperPointe Partnerships is a doctor-owned, doctor-controlled dental service organization (DSO). The DSO facilitates the formation of completely doctor-owned and doctor-led pediatric dental and orthodontic group practices that are supported by PepperPointe.
The key features of the model include maintaining autonomy and preserving the heart and soul of each individual practice, while improving growth and synergy.
The New York Group Practice includes Carl L. DiVita, DDS, of Catania Orthodontics, J. Bradley Ecker, DDS, Pediatric Dentistry, of Gleason Orthodontics, More than a Smile Orthodontics, Rivoli and Rivoli Orthodontics, Orthodontists’ Associates of Western New York, and Owl Orthodontics.
“At PepperPointe, we believe the quality of care a doctor-owner provides to a practice, community, and their patients is unmatched,” said Julie Booher, PepperPointe Partnerships chief strategy officer. “Our model provides generational continuity of care by doctors who own the practices and own the management company for those practices. That growth and lasting impact are so much more important than the number of locations we support.”
