Top dental support organization taps cloud-tech pioneer to boost revenues and improve patient care

tab32, the dental industry's #1 cloud-based, full-service technology platform, today announced a new partnership with Specialty Dental Brands (SDB), a leading dental support organization (DSO), to accelerate operational efficiency, patient communication and revenue growth for its rapidly growing network of 90+ dental practices.

Based out of Nashville, Tenn., SDB serves a network of children's dental, orthodontic, endodontic, and oral surgery specialists, delivering exceptional business support that enables dental practices to lower overhead, boost revenues, and stay focused on delivering best-in-class patient care. Today, about a fifth of dental practices rely on DSOs to streamline their business operations, and trade insiders expect the proportion of DSO-affiliated practices to rise to almost two-thirds by 2025.


But while DSOs can unlock value and efficiency for dental practices, and promote best practices that improve quality of care for patients, new technologies and data tools are needed to consolidate and accelerate those gains. Old-school, on premise, single server record-keeping and management systems, often requiring a mishmash of third-party vendors, can't keep pace with SDB's rapid growth and growing portfolio of multi-specialty dental practices, so the DSO turned to cloud innovator tab32 to deliver the full-service dental tech stack needed to coordinate operations and unlock data insights at scale.

Designed from the ground up to bring best-in-class cloud services to dental practices and DSOs, tab32's platform turns dental providers' disorganized "data lakes" into self-organizing data warehouses, with uniformly formatted and consistently categorized patient records and business data. With standardized and synchronized data and technology across all of its 90+ locations, SDB can now use cutting-edge AI and business intelligence tools to surface new insights, unlock new efficiencies, and help practices identify smarter and more effective ways to serve patients.

"We knew we needed to level up our data and practice management capabilities, and we quickly found that tab32 was the only cloud provider capable of delivering Open Data Access to drive actionable business insights for dental practices," said Michael Schwartz, CEO of Specialty Dental Brands. "The tab32 system is future-proof and cloud-based — exactly what we need in order to scale and grow while empowering our doctors to provide patients with exceptional care."

"Specialty Dental Brands is a tech-driven, forward-thinking DSO, and we're excited to be supporting their mission," said Kiltesh Patel, CEO and co-founder at tab32. "We built tab32 to not only solve dental practices' existing challenges, but to give them the forward-looking tools they need to support AI-enabled decision-making and revenue growth. We look forward to growing alongside SDB as they expand across the United States."

tab32 will exhibit at Dykema's 2021 Definitive Conference for Dental Service Organizations, held at the Gaylord Rockies Resort in Denver, Colorado, from July 28th to 30th. Visit tab32 at booth 72, where senior leaders are looking forward to connecting with top DSOs from across the country.
