Tralongo LLC Signs Development Agreement With Tampa-Bay Area Dentist

ATLANTA, Ga.—July 28th, 2014Tralongo LLC, an Atlanta-based firm that specializes in dental practice acquisitions, today announced it has signed a development agreement with Dr. Sean Gassett of Apollo Beach, Florida. Under the agreement, Tralongo LLC will assist with the acquisition of at least 10 dental practices over the next 10 years in the Tampa-Bay area, which includes the cities of Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tampa.

With more than 90 years of combined experience in dental management and acquisitions, Tralongo LLC partners with entrepreneurial dentists who are looking to grow their businesses by acquiring and operating multiple practices. The firm which developed a proven system to identify, operate and increase profits in dental offices, has been rapidly growing across the U.S.

Born in Daytona Beach and raised in Gainesville, Gassett currently owns Apollo Beach Dental, a full-service family practice located southeast of Tampa. The practice provides a wide scope of services, including cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry and dental implants.
“The Tampa-Bay area is a bustling market that offers many opportunities to thrive,” said Gassett. “Day by day, the local economy is getting stronger. Population is on the rise, leading to an increase in construction and new home sales. Employment and consumer confidence are also climbing.  I feel this is the right time to get out of the chair and move forward with expansion plans.”

Created in 2013, Tralongo LLC’s five-step process consists of providing partners with a training course, finding the right dental practices to acquire, obtaining the appropriate financing, assisting with the transition from the old ownership to the new owner and working with the dentists to continue operating the new offices to maximize the profit. Tralongo LLC also provides partners with access to its methods, support system and economies of scale.
“We are excited to partner with Dr. Gassett,” said Dr. Ken Tralongo, CEO Tralongo LLC. “He has built a well-respected practice that provides exceptional customer service and high-quality dental care. He knows the market inside out and understands what it takes to operate a successful practice. We welcome him to the Tralongo team.”

“I am thrilled to have partnered with such a great firm,” added Gassett. “It is the perfect match. After all, we both have a common goal of finding new opportunities for growth while focusing on solid business practices.”
