Tralongo Signs Expansion Agreement with Southern California Dentist

National dental practice acquisition firm partners with Dr. James Gorman to expand practices across Southern California  

ATLANTA – March. 29, 2016 – Tralongo, LLC, an Atlanta-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, signed an official partnership with dentist Dr. James Gorman. The agreement will assist Dr. Gorman in creating and growing a network of dental practices in the Southern California area.

“Dr. Gorman is a fantastic addition to our constantly growing roster of alliance partners,” said Dr. Ken Tralongo, Tralongo’s founder and CEO. “He has shown his dedication to providing the highest quality of care to his patients for over three decades, and we look forward to assisting Dr. Gorman in creating a growing dental network across Southern California.”

Dr. Gorman graduated from Emory University’s School of Dentistry in 1985. Upon receiving his degree, he spent the next 20 years practicing in both Greater and Midtown Atlanta before making the move to California in 2013. He has trained with the world’s foremost experts in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry and was awarded the Psi Omega Dental Fraternity Outstanding Achievement Award. Additionally, he earned Emory University’s Preventive Dentistry Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Community.

Dr. Gorman has also served a number of high-profile patients, including supermodels seen in national magazines like Glamour, GQ, and People, as well as on TV programs such as “Good Morning America” and shows featured on MTV. He was also selected to be the team dentist for the Professional Women’s Soccer League team, the Atlanta Beat.

Dr. Gorman is currently a member of several local and national dental organizations, including the American Dental Association, California Dental Association and San Fernando Valley Dental Association. He is also a graduate of the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Cosmetic Dental Studies and is a certified provider for Invisalign® Clear Aligners.

As a Tralongo partner, Dr. Gorman hopes to establish his network in the Southern California region by acquiring 10 new practices within the next 10 years. Tralongo 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 and helps maintain operational support throughout to maximize profits.

“After 30 years of working and operating a private practice, I felt it was time for me to expand into corporate dentistry,” said Dr. Gorman. “However, I realized I could not do it alone, and I needed someone to help take over the operations side and assist with managing overhead. I had heard of Tralongo and knew they have a track record of successfully helping dentists acquire new practices, so the partnership just made sense to me.”

Tralongo is comprised of a team of dental, marketing, financial and business professionals. The firm partners with entrepreneurial dentists who are looking to grow their businesses by acquiring and operating multiple practices—taking professionals out of the chair and into management and ownership.
