Great Lakes Dental Partners Continues to Expand its Midwest Reach with Third Indiana Affiliation

CHICAGO, October 27, 2022 – Great Lakes Dental Partners (“GLDP”) is excited to announce the addition of Rochester Dental Center in Indiana to its network of affiliated practices, growing its reach in the Midwest.

GLDP, a Shore Capital Partners portfolio company, provides practice management services to 35+ partner locations. GLDP provides best-in-class support in operations, recruiting, technology, marketing, and collaboration among clinicians.

Rochester Dental Center was founded in 2000 by David Barts, DDS, and later acquired by his daughter, Caitlin Rich, DDS. For more than 20 years, Rochester Dental Center has provided area residents with multi-specialty dental care while supporting local community causes. “It’s important to me to partner with a DSO that will provide me with the resources and support needed to take my father’s vision for Rochester Dental to the next level, says Dr. Caitlin Rich.

“Rochester Dental has a rich history and is well rooted in the community,” said Jeff McCall, CEO of Great Lakes Dental Partners. This is another great partnership in Indiana, and we’ll continue to look for similarly impressive partners that embody our mission and values of extraordinary dental care, community, and servant leadership,” said Jeff McCall on the new affiliation and the company’s plans for expansion.

GLDP is actively seeking dental office partnerships in the Midwest and is backed by Shore Capital Partners.  Ideal affiliation opportunities include owner doctors who want to partner with functional experts to grow their practices.
