“The formation of Park Dental Partners will strengthen the culture and brands of our successful group practices and enable our expansion to serve more patients in more communities throughout the region. We believe this new structure will be highly impactful in the industry, allowing doctors to remain in control of clinical practices while also retaining control over the governance of Park Dental Partners,” says Swenson.
