Tralongo LLC Signs Agreement to Expand in Maryland and Virginia

National dental practice acquisition firm enters all-new development agreement with Dr. Peter Kwon to gain new offices

ATLANTA, Ga. – March 24, 2015 – Tralongo LLC, an Atlanta-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, announced today an all-new development agreement with Montgomery County, Maryland dentist, Dr. Peter Kwon. Under the terms of agreement, Tralongo will assist Dr. Kwon in obtaining multiple dental practices throughout Maryland and into parts of Virginia, including the District of Columbia, marking the firm’s first partnership for the area.

“We are looking forward to helping Dr. Kwon reach the next level of his dentistry career through practice ownership,” said Dr. Ken Tralongo, founder and CEO, Tralongo LLC. “The dental industry in both Maryland and Virginia is highly regarded, with a total of more than 10,000 licensed dentists. Dr. Kwon is in a prime position for successful growth through the management of these practices and we hope to help him acquire up to 10 or more of them in the next few years.”

Operating out of his Bethesda, Maryland practice since 2007, Dr. Kwon received his dental degree from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in Baltimore. Shortly after, he completed his residency program in advanced education in general dentistry at the University of Maryland and became certified in the state, as well as with Invisalign clear braces. In addition to practicing a full range of dental treatments, Dr. Kwon specializes in cosmetic practices such as veneers, whitening, all-porcelain crowns and tooth color fillings, and is an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry and Korean American Dental Association. After his initial discovery of Tralongo in 2014, Dr. Kwon met with Chris Forneris, the firm’s vice president of business development, to become an alliance partner with a goal of expanding his enthusiasm for dentistry through the acquisition of multiple practices throughout Maryland and Virginia.

“My long-term goal as a dentist and as a Tralongo partner is to have the ability to focus on my close-knit patients while I grow my business,” said Dr. Kwon. “My practice is family oriented and I want to be able to maintain that close connection, while also expanding. Working with Tralongo, I can accomplish just that through practice management that will allow me to continue practicing clinically, but at a pace I choose.”
