Proven DSO Executive Heads Back to Florida

Founded in 1997 as Gentle Dental Group, Sage Dental Management has recently appointed Thomas Marler as president and CEO. Sage Dental has almost doubled its number of locations in the last three years and currently supports 62+ offices throughout Florida and Georgia. Marler will work at the company’s support center and headquarters in Boca Raton and plans to grow the dental support organization throughout Florida and Georgia.

Marler most recently served as president and CEO at Dental One, Inc., which operates 163 dental offices in 13 states. He joined Dental One in 2015.

DentalOne was founded in Dallas, Texas in 1996 and in 2011 DentalCare Partners and Dental One, Inc. merged to create DentalOne Partners. In 2016 DentalOne Partners expanded its portfolio of companies and services by launching two new companies, SmileLogix and CareForward offering dental supplies, consumables, equipment and discount dental programs to independent and national providers, practices and patients. In June 2017, DentalOne Partners and its affiliated DentalWorks practices were named No. 8 on Glassdoor’s list of “25 Hot Companies to Apply to Today.”

Prior to Dental One, Inc., Marler led Intelident Solutions, which owned the dental support organizations of Coast Dental Services and SmileCare, as well as related enterprises DDS Lab and DentistRx. While at Intelident Solutions, Marler was responsible for 186 affiliated dental practices in Florida, Georgia, and California. During his tenure, he led the company to nearly double the number of dental practices, increased revenues by more than 260%, and substantially improved earnings. He is also a member of the ADSO‘s Executive Committee.

Before entering the dental services industry, Marler spent 18 years in the telecommunications industry, holding multiple leadership roles with companies such as Verizon Wireless and Pacific Bell. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree from Harvard University and his MBA from Dartmouth College – Tuck School of Business.
