Tralongo Signs Expansion Agreement with Pennsylvania Oral Surgeon


National dental practice acquisition firm partners with Dr. Alex Balaci to help expand practices across Pennsylvania

SUNRISE, Fla. (March 15, 2017)Tralongo LLC, a Florida-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, signed its first official partnership in the state of Pennsylvania with Dr. Alex Balaci. The agreement will assist Balaci in creating and growing a network of dental practices across Pennsylvania.

“We are excited to be entering a new market with Dr. Balaci,” said Dr. Ken Tralongo, Tralongo’s founder and CEO. “Not only are we continuing to grow at a rapid rate, but this further solidifies the fact that our proven systems can be adapted to any market, regardless of size. With our support of the acquisition process, Dr. Balaci will be well on his way to expanding his network of dental offices and patient care across Pennsylvania.”

Dr. Balaci brings 26 years of experience in oral and maxillofacial surgery. In 1991, he went into private practice after receiving his doctor of dental medicine degree from Farleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey and completing a residency program of oral and maxillofacial surgery at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York. Balaci is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He is a member of several organizations, including the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the American Dental Association, the Pennsylvania Dental Association, the Lebanon County Dental Society and others.

Balaci is the founder and owner of Balaci Oral & Facial Surgery in Lebanon, Pa., where he specializes in all forms of oral surgery, including placing dental implants. He also owns and manages a large dental practice he purchased two and a half years ago.

As a Tralongo partner, Balaci hopes to expand his network with at least 10 acquisitions in the next ten years in order to reach more patients in Pennsylvania.

“Tralongo’s protocol really fits into what I’ve done,” Balaci said. “I’ve already purchased a dental practice, and I want to continue purchasing more. However, I quickly realized how difficult it was to manage and maintain my clinical practice at the same time. Tralongo’s assistance will be a great asset. They’ll help me manage my dental practice so I can expand my own oral surgeon practice, and at the same time, get the benefits of expanding my network.”

The firm partners with entrepreneurial oral healthcare providers, like Balaci, 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 support throughout to maximize profits
