Chicagoland Smile Group, announced the addition of Downtown Dental to its network of partner practices. Founded by general dentist Dr. Roshan Parikh, Chicagoland Smile Group, a portfolio company of Shore Capital Partners, provides practice management services to its affiliated locations, enabling dentists and dental specialists to focus on delivering the absolute best care and to collaborate with other practitioners across the network to better serve patients. Chicagoland Smile Group is Chicago’s local dental support organization.
The newly formed partnership with Downtown Dental, located at 25 East Washington Street in Chicago, brings Chicagoland Smile Group’s clinic count to 13, all accessible within 15 miles of anywhere in the Chicago area. The organization’s rapid expansion over the past year is attributable to its comprehensive practice support systems, patient-centric approach, and flexible partnership opportunities.
“We chose to join Chicagoland Smile Group because they share our commitment to excellence. We had other options, but Chicagoland was the obvious choice, given their focus on patient care, clinical support, and growth in the Chicago market,” said Dr. Viren Patel, Downtown Dental’s founder and managing dentist. Dr. Patel will be an equity holder and a key member of Chicagoland’s executive leadership team, where he will serve as Vice President of Clinical Development.
“Downtown Dental is an exciting addition to our practice network,” said Roger Murray, CEO of Chicagoland Smile Group. “This affiliation expands the Chicagoland network in downtown Chicago, with an impressive office in the Loop and one of the leading dental teams in the area. We look forward to growing further as we identify additional dental practice partnership opportunities throughout Chicago and the surrounding area.”
Earlier this year Chicagoland added Manus Dental and its four practice locations to its platform. That partnership followed three other practice affiliations: Metro Square Dental Associates and Deerpath Dental Specialists, both in Vernon Hills, in December of 2016, and Oradent Associates, in Chicago’s Lincolnwood neighborhood, in March 2017.
