and the Best Place to Get Care
Focus on patients
United Dental Partners is committed to be the Best Place to Give Care and the Best Place to Get Care. We provide all non-clinical services for our doctors, so our doctors are able to focus on providing the best quality care for their patients. By putting patients first and doing what’s right for the patient, our practices continue to grow and thrive.
Our organization, led by two dentists, ensures the focus remains on providing the best care for the patient.
Providing all non-clinical services
In today’s rapidly changing dental environment, dentists face many external challenges to running a practice.
New government and insurance regulations coupled with evolving reimbursement models put continual pressure on their practices to increase productivity in order to meet the raising costs associated with delivering this care. Additionally, the practical logistics of running a business such as marketing, billing, human resources, and operations take many hours outside clinical care.
High quality, efficient care
United Dental Partners was formed to provide dentists a path to deliver the highest quality patient care in the most efficient and effective way possible.
Centralized business functions such as advanced marketing, human capital management, regulatory compliance, billing and credentialing, and information technology support reflect United Dental Partners’ commitment to building best-in-class comprehensive dental practices.
WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
A team-oriented environment where we believe the best idea wins, irrespective of where it was originated.
We do what is right for the patient – even when no one is looking.
Relationships matter to us as we strive for excellence in everything we do.
At United Dental Partners, our core values guide all the decisions we make. What this means to our dentists and our clinical teams is a dental service organization that is the Best Place to Give Care and the Best Place to Get Care.
