Dental Whale Signs Partnership Agreement with Indiana Dentist 

National Dental Practice Services Firm Partners with Indianapolis Dentist to Grow a Network of Practices in the Area 

SUNRISE, Fla. (April 17, 2018) – Dental Whale, a firm specializing in dental practice support services, signed an official partnership with Dr. Santiago Ocampo, DDS. The agreement will help Dr. Ocampo create and grow a network of dental practices in central Indiana.  

As a Dental Whale partner, Dr. Ocampo hopes to expand his network with 10 acquisitions to reach more patients in the Indianapolis area. Dr. Ocampo can draw from the many services Dental Whale’s subsidiary companies provide to achieve his goals. The subsidiary companies include:  

  • the largest dental repair franchise in North America  
  • dental marketing company 
  • dental practice brokerage firm  
  • national dental group practice  
  • dental mergers and acquisitions consulting company  
  • dental de novo consulting company  
  • dental IT company  
  • dental group purchasing organization 
  • dental back office services company 

“I want to make a real impact on my community,” Dr. Ocampo said. “With a network of practices, I’ll be able to provide more consistent patient care and minimize outsourcing to specialty practices. Dental Whale offers everything dentists need to provide excellent service to patients and accomplish their entrepreneurial goals. Many dentists don’t know about the logistical and administrative sides of their businesses, so I plan on leveraging Dental Whale’s services to do what I love as a dentist while reaching my financial objectives – and at some point, have a nice retirement plan.” 

Dr. Ocampo earned his dental degree in 1991 from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia. He moved to the U.S. in 2004 and settled in Massachusetts, where he worked at a community health center. In 2010, he was accepted to the School of Dentistry at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. There, he earned advanced degrees in both prosthodontics and periodontics. He now teaches undergraduate courses at the university and is looking to open his own network of practices. He is a member of the American College of Prosthodontics, the American Academy of Periodontics, the American Dental Association and the Indiana Dental Society.  

“Dr. Ocampo is a wonderful addition to our constantly growing family of dentist entrepreneurs,” Dental Whale co-founder Dr. Scott Leune said. “Our mission is to help dentists take their knowledge of dentistry and apply it to their entrepreneurial objectives. With our acquisition process, de novo program and support services, Dr. Ocampo will be well on his way to expanding his group of dental practices and patient care in Indiana.” 

Dental Whale partners with entrepreneurial dentists, like Dr. Ocampo, who want to grow their businesses by acquiring and operating multiple practices — taking professionals out of the chair and into management and ownership.  

Dental Whale offers the following customizable outsourcing options for dentists: 

  • Front and Back Office Functions – Inbound & outbound call centers, scheduling, confirmations, insurance verification, billing and claims, patient AR, accounting,  IT support 
  • Marketing & Lead Generation – Website design, digital marketing strategies, social media and reputation management, direct mail, email drip campaigns 
  • Seminars & Workshops – Practice management education for dentists, building & growing successful startups, and clinical continuing education 
  • Dental Practice Acquisition – Financing, merger & acquisition consulting, assistance with the transition process and ongoing support for operation of multiple practices 
  • De Novo Specific Support – Demographic analysis, negotiations, design and construction management services  
  • On-Demand Repairs and Services – For all dental equipment repairs and service (including handpieces) plus ability to loan or purchase new equipment
