Thinking of transitioning your practice, or looking for a growth partner?

We offer a variety of customized partnership solutions and can be the perfect fit for owner dentists with a variety of career goals and/or life scenarios. Great Lakes Dental Partners is the partner of choice for owner dentists who want to:

  • Alleviate practice management headaches and get back to focusing on treating patients
  • Secure the value of their nest egg through a practice transition while either continuing to treat patients for several years or retiring in the near term
  • Ensure the long-term success of their office by bringing on a partner to create efficiencies and support ongoing operations
  • Be part of an exciting growth company in the industry and form part of our leadership or growth and development teams
  • Join up and become a shareholder (via our equity program) in the Midwest’s fastest growing Dental Support Organization

We creatively structure our affiliations based on which of these scenarios may apply.

The Integration Process: What to Expect

Our process when pursuing a partnership is fast, efficient, professional, and typically takes 45-60 days from start to finish. During the process, you can expect an unwavering sensitivity toward confidentiality, excellent communication to keep you informed at all stages of the process, and a fair valuation which we stand behind.

When integrating with your practice, we will take great care of your employees, and can often offer them improved benefits and career growth opportunities. We focus on maintaining what is special about your practice, while supporting the practice with GLDP’s best-in-class operations support.

Great Lakes Dental Partners provided us with an opportunity to access a lot of support we did not have. The team at GLDP are top-notch and genuinely care.”

Dr. Robert J. Behrend, Valparaiso Family Dentistry

While we had many options for a future partner, we chose Great Lakes Dental Partners because they share our mission to provide excellent dental care, and given their Midwest focus and roots, they are best-positioned to provide superior operational practice support to our clinical teams.”
