Marquee Dental Partners, a leading dental support organization, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of five practices in the state of Alabama. Marquee Dental has entered into an affiliation agreement with Save-On Dental, a multi-specialty dental practice with locations in Arab, Foley, Millbrook, Pelham and Saraland. By providing dentists with both the support and the clinical autonomy they need to succeed, Marquee enables them to focus their attention on providing the best oral healthcare services possible.
“We are pleased to partner with Save-On Dental, which has built an outstanding reputation providing comprehensive dental services in the state of Alabama for many years,” said Marquee Dental CEO James Usdan. “We are extremely impressed with the commitment of the Save-On Dental team and their expansion into additional cities over the years, as well as their dedication to providing high value services to the community.”
“Acquiring the business end of the Save-On Dental practice through this affiliation further expands Marquee Dental’s footprint in the Mid-South and marks our second major acquisition in the state of Alabama,” said Usdan. “We now have a significant base of operations in Alabama, including the recently completed acquisition of practices in Florence and Huntsville.”
From a patient perspective, the transition will be seamless. Save-On Dental Co-founder Dr. John Denton will continue to be actively involved in the practice. Marquee Dental places heavy emphasis on dentists’ clinical autonomy and will leave in-place Save-On Dental’s dentists and staff.
“Marquee Dental will support our mission of providing affordable, comprehensive dental care to the communities we serve,” said Dr. Denton. “Marquee’s support will reduce the administrative burden of the practice, enabling us to continue focusing our time on providing quality care for patients using the most advanced procedures and technologies.”
Marquee Dental has added 16 practices in three states since the company’s launch in 2015. Marquee affiliates with dental offices and practice groups with a history of providing high quality care, initially focusing in the Mid-South on growth markets including Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama.
The experienced Marquee Dental team includes CEO James Usdan, COO Christy Englehart, Chief Dental Officer Dr. Steve Hecklin, CFO Luke Lamphron and VP of Business Development/Chief Development Officer Nathan Cox. Usdan is a seasoned leader who has served as CEO of three public companies and five private equity-backed firms, including having led or been a board member of four dental service companies.
