DSO Grows with the Goal of Preserving their Practices’ Spirit and Legacy

In August 2017, GDN announced CORDENTAL Group’s first affiliation in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Since then they have been adding affiliations across the Mid-Atlantic, Midwestern, and Southeastern United States.

The Cincinnati-based emerging DSO has now affiliated with two more practices, bringing its total number of affliated practices to nine. One affiliation is in their home state of Ohio. The other supports their goal to achieve market density within the geographic areas they support; it is their third affiliated practice in the Norfolk/Hampton Roads/Tidewater market.

Utilizing their C.O.R. Affiliate Strategy™ , the practices will retain their same name, same location and the same team. CORDENTAL’s goal is to continue the practices’ legacy.

The C.O.R. Affiliate Strategy:

Legacy – uphold all that defines the practice and its success; build upon practices’ traditions to strengthen culture, team and brand.

Flexibility – the individuality of practices and the desires and needs of each owner is valued. The practices’ wants are structured into the affiliation so that it benefits everyone.

Clinical Expertise – recognize practices’ skills and abilities, preserving clinical autonomy.

Work/Life Balance – appreciating what has been invested to reach this point, a work/life balance plan is implemented.

Security – options for capitalizing on the value of the practice by providing a fair value, compensation and financial security.

The Ohio affiliation is with Marc Sirkin, DDS and Derrick Kruger in Blue Ash (Cincinnati), Ohio. The practice was established in 1969 by Dr. Harvey Harris, who retired in 2017. Drs. Sirkin and Kruger both joined Dr. Harvey Harris’s practice in 1988 after graduating from The Ohio State University’s College of Dentistry. They are members of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association, and Cincinnati Dental Association. In addition to general dentistry, the practice provides pedodontic and orthodontic specialty services.

“We are very excited to expand our footprint into Ohio, and specifically CORDENTAL’s home base of Cincinnati. Drs. Sirkin & Kruger bring amazing energy and enthusiasm to our family of companies and we couldn’t be happier to have them as a part of our team.” – Steven Jones, Co-Founder and CDO of CORDENTAL

Dr. Sirkin commented, “Partnering with CORDENTAL allows us to focus all our attention on the best quality patient care without the constant interruptions that are inevitable when running a business.”  Dr. Kruger added, “I look forward to a wonderful new chapter with our partnership with CORDENTAL Group and feel that the future and stability of the practice is in a very sound and positive place.”

Supporting their goal to continue growing within their existing markets, CORDENTAL has also affiliated with Michael D. Turck, DDS. He is a retired Captain from the U.S. Navy and has been providing dental care to the Chesapeake, VA area since 2010. He is a graduate of Indiana School of Dentistry, completed a Prosthodontic Residency at the National Naval Dental School and is Board Certified as a Diplomate with the American Board of Prosthodontics. Dr. Turck is a member of the American Dental Association, American College of Prosthodontics, Tidewater Dental Association, Seaboard Dental Study Club, and the Virginia Dental Association.

“The affiliation with CORDENTAL will provide the team more resources so that we can continue providing the highest level of care to our patients. We are excited to be part of the CORDENTAL family of practices and can only see upside with this affiliation for my team and my patients.” – Dr. Turck
