Is Midwest Dental a viable transition option?

Most often, when you think of multi-location group practices, “Metro” and “Park” come to mind. However, Metro and Park have now combined (as American Dental Partners affiliates) and have 57 practices. Midwest Dental, out of Mondovi, Wisconsin has 67 practices (42 in Wisconsin, 10 in Minnesota, 9 in Illinois, 4 in Iowa and 2 in Colorado).

I recently talked to Sean Epp, the Managing Director of Development* for Midwest. Midwest Dental’s business model is different than the other conglomerates because it’s based largely on one- and two-man practices. They see their model as a traditional practice.

For some dentists, Midwest Dental can be a viable transition option. They often employ the selling Doctor so it’s a possibility if you want to sell your practice but still would like to work for a while. Since the big merger a while back there hasn’t been a lot of news out of Park and Metro Dental. They still maintain separate websites. At one time I thought we’d see a diaspora of Doctors and patients but we haven’t seen that happen.

’til next time…
