Tralongo Signs Expansion Agreement with Tennessee Dentist

National dental practice acquisition firm partners with Dr. Kristen Conner to expand practices across Southern Tennessee

ATLANTA – March. 29, 2016 – Tralongo, LLC, an Atlanta-based firm specializing in dental practice acquisitions, signed an official partnership with Dr. Kristen Conner. The agreement will assist Dr. Conner in creating and growing a network of dental practices across Southern Tennessee.

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of Dr. Conner to our constantly growing roster of alliance partners,” said Dr. Ken Tralongo, Tralongo’s founder and CEO. “Her awards and accolades show that she puts the utmost care and precision into her work, and her patients agree. We look forward to assisting Dr. Conner in creating and growing her ideal dental network.”

Dr. Conner graduated from the University of Louisville School Of Dentistry in 2005. Upon receiving her degree, she opened her own practice, Signature Smiles, located just outside Chattanooga. Signature Smiles has been the recipient of Chattanooga’s “Best of the Best” award for the last four years. The practice has also been a prominent participant in the annual “Dentistry from the Heart” event in the area, opening its doors and providing dental care to low-income families who need it most.

Dr. Conner is currently a member of several local and national dental organizations, including the American Dental Association, Chattanooga Area Dental Society, Tennessee Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Orthodontic Society and International Association of Comprehensive Aesthetics.

As a Tralongo partner, Dr. Conner hopes to grow her network in Southern Tennessee by acquiring at least one new practice every year.

“I have always dreamed of expanding my practice but lacked the knowledge and resources to do so,” said Dr. Conner. “When I did my research, I found that Tralongo specialized in helping dentist grow their networks by taking care of the operations side and helping put an infrastructure together that allows them to focus on what they do best. I am very excited to begin working with them, and I cannot wait to see how far I can take my practice.”

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.

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.
