Tralongo Signs Expansion Agreement with Georgia Dentist


National dental practice acquisition firm partners with Dr. Hetesh Ranchod to help expand practices across Georgia

SUNRISE, Fla. (July xx, 2017)Tralongo, a Florida-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, signed an official partnership with Hetesh Ranchod, DDS. The agreement will assist Ranchod in growing a network of dental practices throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area.

“Dr. Ranchod 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. Ranchod will be well on his way to expanding his network of dental offices and patient care across Georgia.”

Dr. Ranchod was born in South Africa and received his doctor of dental surgery degree from the University of Tennessee. In 1998, he opened his first practice, Marietta Family Dental Solutions, as a solo practitioner in Marietta, Ga. His practice offers a wide range of services, from general dentistry to more specialized treatments for conditions such as sleep apnea. Dr. Ranchod has had remarkable success treating orofacial pain and is also committed to researching oral cancer. The many awards and accolades he has received include recognition for participation in the Cracked Tooth Registry at the National Dental Practice-Based Research Network and research in oral cancer through the University of Alabama. He is a member of several organizations, including the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, Academy of Clinical Sleep Disorders Disciplines, International Association of Orthodontics and American Academy of Orofacial Pain.

As a Tralongo partner, Dr. Ranchod hopes to develop a network of offices through four acquisitions in the next four years.

“Tralongo has a roadmap for managing practices as an absentee owner,” Dr. Ranchod said. “My goal is to treat patients experiencing chronic craniofacial and orofacial pain and to practice dental sleep medicine. Owning multiple practices will allow me to do that because I will be able to help a larger group of patients.”

The firm partners with entrepreneurial oral healthcare providers, like Dr. Ranchod, 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, administrative, and management support throughout to maximize profits
