Tralongo Signs Expansion Agreement with Colorado Dentist

National dental practice acquisition firm partners with
Dr. Edward Ruvins to help expand practices across Northern Colorado

SUNRISE, Fla. (Jan. 17, 2017)Tralongo, LLC, a Florida-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, signed an official partnership with Dr. Edward Ruvins, DDS. The agreement will assist Ruvins in creating and growing a network of dental practices across the Denver-Aurora Metropolitan area.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Ruvins into our constantly growing family of strategic alliance partners,” said Dr. Ken Tralongo, the company’s founder and CEO. “He has shown that he is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to his patients while putting a high premium on patient satisfaction. We look forward to assisting Dr. Ruvins as he creates a dynamic dental network across the state of Colorado.”
Doctor Ruvins received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from New York University in 1995. Upon graduation, he completed his residency at the Columbia University School of Medicine and Dentistry affiliated St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York City. An accomplished scholar, Dr. Ruvins received his Master of Science Degree in Oral Implantology from the J.W. Goethe University in Germany, Master of Business Administration degree from The George Washington University, and Master of Science in Corporate Finance from The London School of Business and Finance. In 1997, he opened his current practice, Spectrum Dental Group in Denver, Colorado, specializing in reconstructive and implant dentistry and providing care for patients with special needs. He is currently a member of several national dental organizations, including the Academy of Osseointegration, American Academy of Impant Dentistry, Special Care Dentistry Association, American Academy of Facial Esthetics and National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts.

As a Tralongo partner, Ruvins hopes to expand his network with up to 12 acquisitions within the next ten years in order to reach more patients in Denver and its surrounding areas.

“Not only was I interested in working with Tralongo because they will help me grow my practice, but I was also really impressed with their ability to lay out a clear, well-defined exit strategy,” said Ruvins. “It’s a great company for likeminded-dentists who are looking to grow quickly the right way and set themselves up for success down the line.”

Tralongo partners with entrepreneurial dentists, like Ruvins, who are looking to growing a network of dental practices by acquiring and operating multiple practices—taking doctors 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.
