Tralongo Signs Expansion Agreement with New York Dentist

National dental practice acquisition firm partners with Dr. Shay Markovitch to help expand practices across New York

SUNRISE, Fla. (April 12, 2017)Tralongo LLC, a Florida-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, signed an official partnership with Shay Markovitch, DMD. The agreement will assist Markovitch in creating and growing a network of dental practices across New York.

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

Dr. Markovitch brings 20 years of experience in dentistry, having graduated from Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, Romania, in 1997. He later practiced in Israel for seven years before moving to the United States. Wanting to specialize in cosmetic dentistry, he enrolled in Eastman Dental Center in Rochester, NY. In 2012, he purchased his first practice, Westchester Smile Design in Yonkers and in 2015 he bought Buchanan Dental Arts in Buchanan, NY. Markovitch practices with his wife Lori Markovitch, DDS, whom he met while attending dental school in Romania. They are co-owners of both practices and are members of the American Dental Association.

As a Tralongo partner, Markovitch hopes to expand his network with at least eight acquisitions in the next eight years in order to reach more patients in New York.

“I wanted to grow my practices, but I needed help with managing them,” Markovitch said. “I started to read about Tralongo and found it made sense for me to partner with them. They will put a system into my operations, which will help me better control my offices and I will maximize my profit. I’m excited to work with Tralongo because I’m looking at the future, knowing what I want to achieve and now I have the help to accomplish it.”

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