Tralongo Signs Expansion Agreement with California Dentist


National dental practice acquisition firm partners with Dr. Carolyn Baldiviez to help expand practices across California

SUNRISE, Fla. (December 7th, 2017)Tralongo, LLC, a Florida-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, signed an official partnership with Dr. Carolyn Baldiviez, DDS. The agreement will help Dr. Baldiviez create and grow a network of dental practices across California’s Central Coast.

“Dr. Baldiviez is a wonderful addition to our constantly growing family of alliance partners,” said Dr. Ken Tralongo, Tralongo’s founder and CEO. “Tralongo is eager to help dentists with an eye on providing dental services to their entire communities while also helping them achieve their entrepreneurial goals. We are excited to help Dr. Baldiviez build a network of dental offices so that she can reach as many patients as possible in California.”

Dr. Baldiviez formed her first practice in 1996 after graduating from Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor of Science in biology and University of the Pacific Dental School with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery. She spent the next three decades building her successful practice in Santa Maria, Ca., and raising her son and daughter. She’s always had a commitment to local health and education – she serves on the Marian Regional Medical Center Community Board and the St. Joseph High School Consultative Board. She’s also a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association and the Central Coast Dental Society.

As a Tralongo partner, Baldiviez hopes to expand her network with a goal of one acquisition each year in order to reach more patients in the Central Coast region.

“Tralongo is giving me the chance to get out of the chair and have some more freedom in my life, while still participating in the world of dentistry,” Baldiviez said. “I’ve worked with practice management services before, but Tralongo has the whole package to get your practice to the ultimate place. They’re giving you an opportunity in your career that you wouldn’t have otherwise. I highly recommend attending Discovery Day. They’re honest, and they let you decide what’s best for you and your practice.”

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

Tralongo is comprised of a team of dental, marketing, financial and business professionals and 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
  • Helps maintain operational support throughout to maximize profits.
