PepperPointe Partnerships was founded in Lexington, Ky. by a group of innovative orthodontists who realized changing dynamics in the dental industry and wanted to create a model to preserve the legacy of doctor-owned practices and help protect the future of dentistry. Over the past 25 years their practice, White, Greer & Maggard Orthodontics, has grown to 20 offices and one retail location. PepperPointe Partnerships was founded in 2017 to support that growth and centralize non-clinical functions while creating efficiencies for future growth. 

Today, PepperPointe Partnerships supports more than 90 office locations, including pediatric dentistry, orthodontics, and general dentistry, with 85 partner doctors and more than 700 team members. 

Our innovative approach leverages the strengths and culture of doctor-owned dental practices for greater success. Our professionally managed services empower and support doctors to focus on what they were trained, and love, to do: provide excellent patient care and build long-lasting relationships and connections.

What We Can Do Together

Maintain Doctor Ownership

We believe it is vital to the health of the practice and patients to provide continuity of care and a strong commitment through doctor ownership. When doctor-owned practices also receive support through our professionally managed services, it creates an unparalleled synergy and opportunity for growth. Practice ownership minimizes turnover, leverages the experience and knowledge of the doctor and their staff, and enhances their short-term and long-term financial benefits.

Join a Collaborative Doctor Network

The PepperPointe model creates a collaborative network of dental practitioners that is healthy and supportive, rather than isolating and competitive. Together, we’re able to achieve greater efficiencies and more comprehensive administrative benefits and share valuable best practices. We believe we have the strategy, team, infrastructure, and model to make a significant and decisive step toward saving the dental industry from a potentially dire future. We protect the patients, staff, and legacy of the local doctor-owned practices.

Create a Strategic Exit Strategy

We provide a strategic plan where the ownership of the doctor’s practice is intentionally and systematically transitioned to a new doctor at a point in time of the current doctor-owner’s choosing. The process also includes the opportunity for the transitioning doctor’s development through experience, mentorships and support to ensure a smooth and healthy transition where the practice’s excellent service to the patients and community is maintained, and the legacy and reputation is preserved.

Receive Value-Added Managed Services

We are committed to strategically supporting doctors with opportunities to grow their practice and optimize efficiencies, removing the headaches from their day-to-day operations. Our doctors continue to maintain control in all treatment decisions, and they have the support of an experienced team to help ensure their success and their future.
