Tralongo Signs Expansion Agreement with Virginia Dentist
National dental practice acquisition firm partners with Dr. Bell to expand practices across Northern Virginia
ATLANTA – July 27, 2016 – Tralongo, LLC, an Atlanta-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, signed an official partnership with Dr. Alonzo Bell, DDS. The agreement will assist Dr. Bell in creating and growing a network of dental practices across Northern Virginia.
“Dr. Bell is a wonderful addition to our constantly growing roster of alliance partners,” said Dr. Ken Tralongo, the firm’s founder and CEO. “He has shown he is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to his patients for the last 30 years while always ensuring they have the best experience possible. We look forward to assisting Dr. Bell as he follows his dreams of growing his dental network.”
Dr. Bell received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Northwestern University in 1982. Shortly thereafter, he opened his first practice where he has specialized in general, cosmetic and restorative dentistry, since 1985. Dr. Bell has also completed hundreds of hours of continuing education courses in the area of sleep apnea therapy, helping patients manage breathing, snoring, and daily fatigue by providing them with custom oral sleep appliances.
Dr. Bell is currently a member of several local and national dental organizations, including the American Dental Association, Northern Virginia Dental Society, and the Virginia Dental Association. In addition, he participates in the Virginia Dental Association Foundation’s Mission of Mercy (MOM) projects where he volunteers his time, practice and dental staff to provide underserved areas of Virginia with dental care.
“As an alliance partner, my hope is to acquire five practices in the next five years,” said Dr. Bell. “I have been looking to expand my practice for some time now, and I was impressed with Tralongo’s systematic approach that helps ensure that every new additional practice I add to my network will be identical to the last. I’m looking forward to growing professionally while stepping away from the chair to focus more on family and travel.”
Tralongo operates via a five-step process that trains partners, helps them find the right dental practices to acquire, assists in obtaining the appropriate financing, works with them during the transition from old to new ownership and helps maintain operational support throughout to maximize profits.
Tralongo is comprised of a team of dental, marketing, financial and business professionals. The firm partners with entrepreneurial dentists who are looking to grow their businesses by acquiring and operating multiple practices—taking professionals out of the chair and into management and ownership.
