Tralongo Signs Expansion Agreement with Minnesota Dentist

National dental practice acquisition firm partners with Dr. Dan Larscheid to help expand practices across Minnesota

SUNRISE, Fla. (XXX 2017)Tralongo, LLC, a Florida-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, signed an official partnership with Dr. Dan Larscheid, DDS. The agreement will assist Larscheid in creating and growing a network of dental practices across Minnesota.

“Dr. Larscheid 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. Larscheid will be well on his way to expanding his network of dental offices and patient care across the Minnesota area.”

Larscheid practiced dentistry in Minnesota and Colorado after receiving his doctorate of dental surgery degree from the University of Minnesota’s School of Dentistry. While in Colorado, he owned five offices before relocating to Duluth, Minnesota, where he purchased Woodland Family Dental in 2014 and continued his quest of developing a network of dental practices in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. When he took over the practice in Duluth, it was seeing only three new patients a month. Since then, however, Larscheid grew that number to 30 new patients a month and increased revenue by nearly 80 percent.

He is a member and a fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, as well as a member of the American Dental Association and the Minnesota Dental Association. With a desire to help children at home and abroad, Woodland Family Dental has sponsored different charitable events in the area, including the Krazy Kids Fun Run in Superior, Wisconsin. Larscheid and his staff also traveled to Belize to help children living in an orphanage last summer.

As a Tralongo partner, Larscheid hopes to provide dental services to more people, especially those who fear dental procedures. He plans on doing this by acquiring more dental offices in the region.

“I’ve been on a quest to own multiple offices since moving back from Colorado,” he said, adding, “I’ve been doing sedation dentistry for many years now, and I want to rehabilitate people of their fears of dentistry across the Midwest using dental sedation while also providing affordable quality general dental care. Using Tralongo’s systems for the back office would make it easy to scale my business. It’s all about scalability.”

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

  • 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
