Freedom Dental Partners is an aligned dental support group of more than 350 dental practices in 42 states with $65m EBITDA. It is headquartered in Montclair, New Jersey.

Avi Weisfogel is the co-founder of the International Academy of Sleep and Freedom Dental Partners. While practicing clinical dentistry, Avi bought five practices and sold all of them at a hefty profit. Additionally, he built a multi-state empire of practices dedicated to the treatment of sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy.

As part of the transaction, dntl bar will consolidate its operations into its flagship location in Chelsea while retaining its founder, Ben Elchami, and the four current dentists.

“The elite caliber of our dentists, hygienists, and technology will provide an optimal patient experience through this transition,” said Dr. Steven Albert who led the negotiations for Freedom Dental Partners. “Dntl Bar is the home of thousands of patients, and we look forward to delivering exceptional care to each and every one.”
