Today, Inc. revealed that PepperPointe Partnerships is No. 3,072 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. In PepperPointe’s first appearance on the list, they ranked 173 in health services, 24 in Kentucky, and fourth in their hometown of Lexington.

The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“It is an honor to be recognized for such a distinguished achievement,” said PepperPointe Partnerships CEO and President, Dr. Greg White. “We are so grateful to our doctor partners for their continued support and their dedication towards protecting personalized care. This milestone is just the beginning for PepperPointe, it solidifies us as one of the largest and fastest-growing DSOs and most importantly, strengthens our ability to further our mission.”

PepperPointe Partnerships is the only doctor-owned, doctor-controlled dental service organization (DSO) of its size. This unique DSO facilitates the formation of completely doctor-owned and doctor-led pediatric dental and orthodontic Group Practices that are supported by PepperPointe. The organization was founded on the belief that true doctor ownership — at all levels of the organization — ensures long-term continuity of care for the patient. This important distinction preserves the legacy of doctor-owned practices and in doing so, protects the continuity of patient care for generations.

The Inc. 5000 list honors the fastest-growing private companies based on their growth and development over a three-year period. The companies on the list have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19.

“The past few weeks have been remarkable for PepperPointe, not only due to our debut on the Inc. 5000 list but as we celebrated the expansion into our first market outside the state of Kentucky, with the addition of eight orthodontic and pediatric practices in New York,” said Dr. White. “This year has consisted of many firsts for us but we’re most proud of what the growth and lasting impact will have on our patients and communities.”

PepperPointe will continue its successful growth while serving nearly 100 doctors owners, 1,000 team members, and providing quality care to over 275,000 patients.
