YOUR PRACTICE. YOUR PATIENTS.
NO STRINGS ATTACHED.
Being an p4dental partner means staying in control of your practice while enjoying the benefits you’d find at a larger group. From additional services to equipment to staffing—we’re in it to make the lives of dentists easier. Why? We’re dentists too.
We focus on the business – You focus on
being the very best Dentist
We partner with dentists to provide them with the best management services to allow them to be the best clinician. Through our experience in business, we also help clinicians maximize their wealth creation for retirement.
WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT OUR PROFESSION
WITH ALL THAT PAPER-PUSHING, YOU MAY AS WELL HAVE GOTTEN A BUSINESS DEGREE.
You didn’t become a dentist to be a glorified administrator – so why are you forced to do the work of an accountant, marketer, recruiter, IT professional, and compliance expert?
You could get some support from a dental service organization (DSO), but then your practice would be controlled by an out-of-touch suit in a boardroom.
That’s why p4 Dental created a third option: joining our dental partnership organization (DPO). Our supportive community of dentists takes the admin work off your plate while leaving you in complete control of your practice.
Will You Be Next?
From our formularies for the best in supply pricing to IT support and protection, our team offers you the backing you need so you can focus on what you love, dentistry.
Wealth & Retirement
Our goal isn’t to just help with operational support, we want to give you the tools and resources so you can make more money by working smarter and not harder.
Keep caring for patients the way you want, and as a partner, we will provide you with a team of dedicated professionals to help with the ins and outs of the financials of your practice.

HOW THE p4 DENTAL
WE BECOME PARTNERS
Just like any dating period, we take our time getting to know one another. As part of the process, you receive your practice valuation at fair market value. If it looks like we’ll both win through partnership, we “put a ring on it,” which means that p4 acquires a part of your practice, giving you the support you need to grow without losing control.
YOUR PRACTICE RUNS BETTER
As a partner, you take advantage of centralized services to incorporate best practices and improve your practice’s profitability. With more time on your hands and more accessible profits, your quality of life starts to improve right away.
YOU GROW YOUR BRAND
Use p4dental capital, resources, and relationships to grow your local brand. You’ll have what you need to build or buy offices and grow at your own pace.
AND MAKE MORE MONEY
l more of your remaining equity at a higher valuation the next time p4dental recapitalizes. Valuations for group practices of our size range from 10x-14x earnings (EBITDA) and everyone’s equity is valued the same. Private equity sponsors traditionally recapitalize every five years.

How We Support Dentists Like You
Testimonials from our Partners
“I have seen all aspects of the “Practice of Dentistry” as well as the “Business of Dentistry” in my forty year career. I have owned practices, bought and sold them, merged them, managed and led them. I now have the opportunity to complete my life in dentistry by being a part of the P4D team. The practice I had recently been associating with was purchased by P4D in January of 2019. With their ownership, management and resources we have had the reins taken off of our office and off of us as doctors. Our practice has always emphasized quality dentistry to our patients but now the quality of management resources available with P4D matches our services to our community. We have been able to flourish beyond our past accomplishments. They have streamlined our operations and simplified decision making from the top down and the bottom up. We are very grateful to everyone at P4D for what they have done for us. This will truly be a very “Servant Oriented” relationship for all of us that will benefit the members of our community which we serve.”
“Being a P4D dentist is great! I can focus on what is important to me, providing the highest quality dental care for my patients. P4D works behind the scenes providing the office backbone, HR support, continuing education, and systems to run smoothly. They are working with the most current equipment and supplies and are able to focus on what matters most -diagnosing and providing excellent dental care for our patients!”
“Choosing to transition your practice is one of the biggest decisions most doctors will make and I could not be more pleased with my choice of Partnerships for Dentists for my practice. Their team has the expertise, care, and vision to allow the perfect transition tailored to meet your needs. I looked at several companies before choosing Partnerships for Dentists and from the first time we met they showed me how they were there to serve my practice and my patients in the way that I had always dreamed. They have exemplified what it means to practice servant leadership and they will do the same for you.”
“Selling my practice to P4D and Dr. Ramirez has been an excellent decision. I have 6 more years until retirement and I LOVE working as a dentist 10 days per month with NONE of the headaches of managing the practice. P4D, Andy and Keith treated me well as the practice seller, and they have treated me well as an employee also.“
“Earlier this year, our team at Heritage Dental abruptly and surprisingly discovered we were about to undergo some major changes. We had been acquired by P4D. As expected, I was overtaken by the fear of the unknown. Thus far, the transition has been so much smoother than I have ever anticipated. Fortunately, our practice had very successful systems already in place, but the knowledge and guidance provided Dr. Kerbel and Pam Draper have not only enhanced these systems but have taken them to next level. Unlike other organizations, the priority for P4D is providing quality care with the dentist keeping clinical autonomy. This is a Win-Win for all involved but most of all for our patients. We are now using high quality products and top- notch dental labs that make our job so much easier and much more efficient. Having practiced dentistry for over 22 years, I can honestly say that this is the happiest I have been for many years. I am proud to say I am part of the P4D team!!”
“Partnering with P4D makes dentistry more enjoyable. They run the daily management of the business that is crucial for the success of a dental practice which allows me to be focused on patient care. Together as partners, we are able to make the practice thrive in all aspects.”
OUR PROFESSION SHOULD BE RUN BY DENTISTS, NOT CORPORATIONS.
