DSO ‘Pioneering a New Culture in Dentistry’ Grows Stronger with Addition of 17 Practices

North American Dental Group (NADG) has welcomed 17 new dental offices across six states since the start of the fall 2020 season. NADG now supports more than 240 dental practices and nearly 500 full-time dentists across 15 states and 29 regional markets.

The dental group, which says it is ‘pioneering a new culture in dentistry,’ was one of the first organizations to jump in to help the dental industry at the beginning of the pandemic by creating COVID-19 Resources for Dental Professionals.  One of their practices in New Castle, PA was the first in Pennsylvania to administer COVID-19 diagnostic and antibody tests to patients. Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the DSO was cofounded by Ken Cooper and Dr. Andrew Matta in 2008.

“Our culture is derived by the action of thousands with one unified goal, to change dentistry.” – Ken Cooper, Founding Partner & CEO

The 17 newly affiliated practices, which employ over 30 doctors, represent partnerships with six different dental groups, including:

“We are honored to have earned the trust of these dental groups especially during a pandemic that has challenged all facets of the dental industry and business operations. We are committed to providing the administrative services these practice teams need so that they can focus on what matters most, the delivery of best-in-class oral health care to every patient at every visit.” – Ken Cooper, CEO & Co-founder

NADG also welcomed the following principals from these new groups into servant leadership roles at NADG as Group Founders, lending their clinical expertise to other supported doctors at affiliated practices:

  • Dr. Douglas Voiers at Aura Smile Dental
  • Dr. Christopher Campus at Sorrento Dental Care, Aggie Dental Center and Bright Downtown Dental Arts
  • Dr. David Snodgrass and Dr. John King at Snodgrass-King Dental
  • Dr. Brian Gaudreault at Southeast Orthodontics
  • Dr. Bart Silverman at BWS Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

“Relieving administrative burdens to allow these excellent groups to focus on clinical care is important, but we are equally honored to help these group founders expand their vision in their respective markets,” Cooper said. “NADG is the leading affiliation and support platform for emerging group founders and we are grateful for the opportunity to support these incredible entrepreneurs and visionaries.”

It is a hospital approach to dentistry with a focus on collaboration.
