A Smarter Approach To Dentistry

At DentalOne Partners, our mission is clear: to change the dental space by supporting smart, technologically advanced practices, where doctors are free to focus on patient care without the administrative headaches of running a practice.

About us

The Power Of Partnership.

When practices are supported in genuine partnership, exciting new possibilities arise: Overhead is reduced. Processes are streamlined. Purchasing power and efficiencies are increased. And doctors are free to devote more time to patient care.

In 1981, we set out to help doctors enhance their capabilities, grow their practices, and operate more efficiently by leveraging the power of partnership. Our commitment to becoming the largest Dental Healthcare Provider in the U.S. will enable us to create even greater opportunities in the years ahead — and better support the doctors and patients we serve.

Best of all, there’s no pressure or interference; I still maintain clinical control of my practice.”
