Cleveland based dentist owned group hits milestones

Almost forty years ago on November 23, 1977, John Hudec, founder of Hudec Dental started with a single office in Cleveland.  Hudec Dental’s sole purpose was to serve the City of Cleveland. Since that time, they opened offices in a variety of cities serving different demographics. In an effort to serve new communities, Hudec Dental recently acquired two practices on the west side of Cleveland.

The first practice was acquired in December 2016 from Dr. Dennis Kempf in Elyria. Dr. Kempf practiced for over 30 years. His four team members remain the same and will continue serving their patients with Dr. Richard Kun. Dr. Kun joins the practice with over 10 years of dental experience.

Hudec Dental has grown through both acquisition and de novo locations.  Back in 2011 Hudec acquired three former Allcare locations and patient records from another four defunct Allcare offices.  In early January 2011 Allcare Dental & Dentures, a New York based dental group closed all 58 of its locations across 13 states.  Allcare had 38 locations just in Ohio.

Although Hudec Dental continues to grow, one aspect remains the same, their core values. Since day one, their priority has been centered on serving patients and improving the quality of their lives. They have instilled this into each of their 20 locations.  Hudec Dental is the only dental group born and bred in Cleveland, Ohio. They truly care about the City of Cleveland and work daily to help improve the health of their patients. Their Relax & Smile philosophy was created to highlight the patient’s experience. Hudec Dental recognizes one’s anxiety to visit the dentist therefore they try to aid this fear by talking the patient through their visit.
