Dental Whale Signs Partnership Agreement with Texas Dentist

National Dental Practice Services Firm Partners with Central Texas Dentist to Expand and Support Practices in the Region

SUNRISE, Fla. (March 23, 2018) – Dental Whale, a firm specializing in dental practice support services, signed an official partnership with Dr. Richard Leung, DDS. The agreement will help Dr. Leung create and grow a network of dental practices across Central Texas.

As a Dental Whale partner, Dr. Leung plans to expand his network with five to ten acquisitions to reach more patients in the Greater Austin area. Dr. Leung 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’m an entrepreneur by nature but trained in dentistry. I’ve always envisioned myself opening multiple practices to provide world class dentistry to the community,” Dr. Leung said. “Our goal is to improve the lives of our community by providing comfortable, efficient and quality dentistry in a unique environment at each location. Dental Whale will help us achieve this by providing the support and infrastructure that private dentists didn’t have access to in the past. We will gain corporate-level advantages to grow big while allowing us to stay small and locally-owned. It’s the best of both worlds.”

Dr. Leung earned his bachelor’s degree in business from the University of California – Riverside in 1999 and his DDS from New York University in 2009. He is a member of the American Orthodontic Society, the International Association for Orthodontics and the Academy of General Dentistry. He opened his first successful practice in 2012 in Temple, Texas, and has since launched a second. His offices are highly involved in the surrounding community. Each year, they sponsor college scholarships for three local students. They hold an annual Project Smile giveaway, in which residents can enter for a chance to win a free dental makeover. They also partner with charitable organizations, such as Food for Families and Toys for Tots.

“Dr. Leung 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 offering of support services, Dr. Leung will be well on his way to expanding his group of dental practices and patient care across the state of Texas.”

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

  • Front and Back Office Functions – Inbound & outbound call centers, scheduling, confirmations, insurance verification, billing and claims, patient AR, accounting, IT support
