Dental Whale’s Entrepreneur Program Helps Michigan Orthodontist Acquire General Dentistry Practices

Support Services Program Prepares Dr. Randy Shaw for Continued Expansion

SUNRISE, Fla. (July 13, 2018)Dental Whale, a firm specializing in dental practice support services, partnered with Dr. Randy Shaw, DDS, to provide support he needed to add general dentistry practices to his network of orthodontic practices across Michigan. Dr. Shaw utilized Dental Whale’s acquisitions assistance and support services to take a more entrepreneurial role to better manage his five practices.

“While practicing orthodontics for the last 30 years, I have been working to acquire orthodontics practices,” said Dr. Shaw. “However, these offices were just too few and far between. I knew general dentistry offices would be more available and beneficial for my expansion. Dental Whale helped me understand the financial viability of acquisitions and helped me structure new practices.”

Dental Whale partners with entrepreneurial dentists, like Dr. Shaw, who want to grow their businesses by acquiring and operating multiple practices — taking professionals out of the chair and into management and ownership. Dr. Shaw has leaned on Dental Whale services for the onboarding process, monitoring key performance indicators and strategies to increase production and profits.

“Dental Whale was the support center that I needed to shift my focus to growth,” Dr. Shaw said. “The services were crucial as I learned about general dentistry and the startup processes for those practices. Dental Whale helps measure success and shows where I could be improving. I always strive for efficiency at each practice. I’m comfortable with the stability of my current practices and want to continue expanding. With the help of Dental Whale, I plan to have 20 practices.”

Dental Whale offers customizable outsourcing options for dentists including:

  • Front and back office operations
  • Marketing and lead generation
  • Seminars and workshops
  • Dental practice acquisition
  • De novo specific support
  • On-demand repairs and services

“More dentists are hearing about this smarter way to do business,” Dr. 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, dentists have everything they need to make their goals a reality.”
