A new kind of DPO for entrepreneurial dentists

Our mission is to empower entrepreneurial dentists by placing practice equity ahead of private equity, leading to greater patient focus and exceptional long-term returns.


We exist to help you succeed

At Accelerate Dental, we know that every dentist has two goals in mind: to take care of their patients and build a successful practice. You want to give your patients an amazing experience, run your business efficiently, and create a solid financial foundation. And partnering with a dental partnership organization can help you get there. 

Unfortunately, traditional DSOs aren’t focused on entrepreneurial dentists; instead, they focus on buying older, more established firms. This can be frustrating for dentists who are actively striving to expand their practices and don’t want to give up most of their equity.

We believe that dentists should have support without having to sacrifice autonomy. We understand that you want to stay in control of your practice while investing in its future. That’s why we created a DPO for entrepreneurial dentists. It’s pretty simple, really. You invest in other thriving practices while maintaining majority ownership of your own, and we provide you with business services and support.
