NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Marquee Dental Partners, a rapidly growing dental support organization, today announced the completion of its third acquisition. Marquee Dental has entered into an affiliation agreement with Winfree and Denton Cosmetic and General Dentistry, a multi-specialty dental practice located in Hermitage, Tennessee, just outside of Nashville. By providing dentists with both the support and the clinical autonomy they need to succeed, Marquee enables them to focus their attention on providing the best oral healthcare services possible.
“Winfree and Denton Cosmetic and General Dentistry has built a tremendous reputation of providing high quality, comprehensive dental services in the Nashville area for more than 30 years,” said Marquee Dental CEO James Usdan. “We are honored to partner with a practice as highly regarded as Winfree and Denton. We are especially impressed with the practice’s outstanding patient and staff loyalty during past three decades.”
“Acquiring the business end of the Winfree and Denton practice through this affiliation marks Marquee Dental’s second major acquisition in the Nashville area and further expands the company’s footprint in the Mid-South,” said Usdan. “We now have significant operations in the Nashville market, including the acquisition of a seven-office Nashville dental practice that Marquee completed in the fourth quarter of 2015.”
From the patient perspective, the transition will be seamless. Marquee Dental, which places heavy emphasis on dentists’ clinical autonomy, will leave in-place Winfree and Denton’s practice and staff. Dr. Terry Winfree, DDS, and Dr. Greg Denton, DDS, will continue to remain actively involved in the practice.
“Marquee Dental will support our practice’s mission of providing the highest quality cosmetic and general dentistry to families in the Nashville area,” said Dr. Terry Winfree, DDS. “By handling the administrative aspects of the practice, Marquee will enable us to focus on caring for patients using the most advanced technologies and procedures available in the industry today.”
Marquee Dental plans to continue the rapid growth of its practice roster during 2016. In addition to eight practices in the Nashville market, Marquee also added a Paducah, Kentucky practice in late 2015. Marquee Dental will affiliate with dental offices and practice groups in growth markets with a history of providing high quality care, initially focusing in the Mid-South on markets including Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama.
Marquee Dental CEO James Usdan is a seasoned leader who has served as CEO of three public companies and five private equity-backed firms, including having led or been a board member of four dental service companies. Joining Usdan are COO Christy Englehart, Chief Dental Officer Dr. Steve Hecklin, CFO Luke Lamphron and VP of Business Development/Chief Development Officer Nathan Cox.
