USOSM Experiences Significant Growth Despite Covid-19 Economic Disruption

Specialty management services company U.S. Oral Surgery Management (USOSM) has experienced remarkable growth this past six months, despite the widespread economic disruptions caused by COVID-19.

OSOSM exclusively serves premier oral and maxillofacial surgeons. There are approximately 7,500 oral surgeons practicing in the U.S., and 94% of them operate independently. The oral surgery market is a $14 billion industry.

“When our company was founded just a few short years ago, none of us could have accurately foreseen the depth and breadth of a worldwide pandemic like COVID-19; but thankfully, we have outstanding surgeon partners, and a talented, motivated team, who have all worked hard and sacrificed to help our company and our partner practices to not only survive but to thrive during this tumultuous time.” – Richard Hall, President and CEO, USOSM

Another contributor to the DSO’s substantial growth may be economic concerns fueled by COVID-19.

Completing six new partnerships since October of 2020, the new partnerships include 11 locations in four states – Georgia, Oklahoma, Louisiana and South Carolina. And the specialty DSO is not done yet. During the next few months, they plan to announce new agreements in Florida.

The Thurston Group and RiverGlade Capital formed USOSM in late 2017. The Thurston Group also has an investment in Smiles Dental, a dental support organization in the Pacific Northwest.

Since its inception, USOSM has formed partnerships with approximately 31+ practices. Headquartered in Irving, Texas, USOSM has partner practices spanning nine states: Texas, Colorado, Georgia, Tennessee, Minnesota, Alabama, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and now South Carolina, adding Atlantic Oral Surgery and Implant Center just last week as the first official partner in the state.

The company vision is “to be the oral surgery management company most admired for its people, partnership model and performance.”

To ensure good patient outcomes guide their decision-making, USOSM requires surgeon representation in their governance through active participation on their Clinical Governance Board. The Clinical Governance Board provides a voice in the management of a broad range of network activities including, clinical quality standards, compliance assessments, and professional development through continuing education programs and study clubs.
