Tralongo LLC Signs Development Agreement with Dentist in Johns Creek, Georgia

ATLANTA, Ga.—November 25th, 2014— Tralongo LLC,  an Atlanta-based firm that specializes in dental practice acquisitions, announced today it has entered a development agreement with Dr. Shawn A. Walls, founder of Shawn A. Walls General and Cosmetic Dentistry, to assist with the acquisition of at least five dental practices by 2020. The agreement will serve Metro Atlanta’s northeast communities, including Johns Creek and surrounding areas.

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. and is expected to reach $60 million in revenues by end of 2014.

Originally from Dallas Texas, Dr. Walls moved to Atlanta 25 years ago. He opened his private practice in 1989, after competing his General Practice Residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. He graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas in 1988.

Dr. Walls’ practice provides a wide scope of services and procedures, including general and cosmetic dentistry, endodontics, tooth restoration and dental implants.

“Johns Creek is a very strong market, where dental practices are generally healthy,” said Dr. Walls. “The prospect of growth in this area is very good and we are confident of the success of our expansion plan.”

According to Money Magazine, Johns Creek is one of the highest-earning cities in the United States.

“I knew if I wanted to reach my professional goals, I needed to pursue an acquisition strategy, rather than just focus on increasing revenue within my practice,” added Dr. Walls. “Working with an organization like Tralongo, and having their guidance and support, makes perfect sense to me. They help me reach my goals while reducing the risk of  mistakes.”

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.
