Tralongo Signs Expansion Agreement with Arizona Dentist

National dental practice acquisition firm partners with Dr. Stacey Layman to help expand practices across Arizona

SUNRISE, Fla. (May 18, 2017)Tralongo LLC, a Florida-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, signed an official partnership with Stacey Layman, DDS, D-ABDSM. The agreement will assist Dr. Layman in creating and growing a network of dental practices across Arizona.

“Dr. Layman is a wonderful addition to our constantly growing family of alliance partners,” said Dr. Ken Tralongo, Tralongo’s founder and CEO. “Our mission is to help dentists take their knowledge of dentistry and apply it to their entrepreneurial objectives. With our support of the acquisition process, Dr. Layman will be well on her way to expanding her network of dental offices and patient care across the Arizona.”

Dr. Layman received her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas ‑ Austin and her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Baylor College of Dentistry in 2003. After moving to Arizona with her husband and three children, she purchased Modern Family Dentistry in Glendale in 2004. As one of two dentists in the state who are board certified dental sleep medicine specialists, she also owns Arizona Sleep Solutions. Dr. Layman is the team dentist for the Seattle Mariners baseball team and the dentist on call for Sonoran Living Live, which airs on the ABC affiliate in Phoenix. Dr. Layman also lectures and conducts seminars on dentistry and sleep apnea solutions. She is a member of several organizations, including the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the Arizona Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry and the Academy of Clinical Sleep Disorders Disciplines.

As a Tralongo partner, Dr. Layman hopes to expand her network with 10 acquisitions in the next 10 years in order to reach more patients in Arizona.

“I want to pursue treating more sleep apnea patients, so I’ve partnered with Tralongo to help manage my dental practice,” Dr. Layman said. “With Tralongo’s help, I’d like to build a huge dental service organization, which will allow me to further develop my sleep practice as well. Basically, Tralongo is helping me build two businesses at one time. Tralongo will be most helpful with implementing systems and reducing overhead throughout the process.”

The firm partners with entrepreneurial oral healthcare providers, like Dr. Layman, who are looking to grow their businesses by acquiring and operating multiple practices—taking professionals out of the chair and into management and ownership.
