Tralongo Signs Expansion Agreement with Missouri Dentist

National dental practice acquisition firm partners with Dr. Seth Wasson to help expand practices across St. Louis

SUNRISE, Fla. (Oct. 2, 2017)Tralongo LLC, a Florida-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, signed an official partnership with Seth Wasson, DMD. The agreement will assist Wasson in creating and growing a network of dental practices across the St. Louis area.

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

Wasson received his doctor of dental medicine degree from the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in 2001. Since 2006, he has been practicing at Brentwood Dental Group in Brentwood, Missouri, specializing in Invisalign treatment. He is a member of the American Association of Cosmetic Orthodontics. Wasson has taken mission trips to Nicaragua and Jamaica, where he performed extractions for a segment of the population who have never experienced dental care before. Wasson became interested in working with Tralongo after hearing David Lopez, entrepreneur with the firm, speak at a dental conference last summer. He attended Discovery Day in August and recently completed training.

As a Tralongo partner, Wasson hopes to develop his network with 10 acquisitions in the next 10 years in order to reach more patients in Missouri.

“The leadership of Ken and David appealed to me, especially Ken’s background in practice acquisitions and David’s track record of success with anything he touches. I like the business model they have created and that I will be able to retain a degree of ownership after the sale of the practices. But first, Tralongo will be helpful in identifying the right practices to purchase and providing support services to help them grow.”

The firm partners with entrepreneurial oral healthcare providers, like Wasson, 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
