Dentsply GAC, Pride Institute form orthodontic partnership

Dentsply GAC International and Pride Institute have formalized a strategic partnership to provide a suite of practice management solutions tailored to the orthodontic market.

The programs are designed around practice management solutions created by Pride Institute exclusively for Dentsply GAC customers. These tools are customized to meet the unique needs of the orthodontist as a business owner and leader, the companies noted.

"Practice management isn't always a priority, but it's almost always profitable," said John Kringel, director of marketing for Dentsply GAC, in a press release. "This partnership offers a unique approach to practice management for any practice. Working together, we have made engaging with a consultant affordable and approachable and created a progression to get started with a variety of options to suit any practice need."

Orthodontists will find a range of practice management solutions from which to choose, from an initial practice assessment with custom findings for immediate impact to a full spectrum of services.

"It is clear in this economic climate that orthodontists need to work smarter than ever before," said Lou Shuman, DMD, an orthodontist and president of Pride Institute. "Pride and GAC have spent months putting together a customized practice management approach focusing on leadership and growth solutions that will do just that."

In addition to the strategic partnership, which provides for ongoing development of additional practice management tools, education, and individual practice management consultation, Pride becomes a preferred partner in Dentsply GAC's United Orthodontic Buying Group (UOBG). As a preferred partner, Pride is offering UOBG members preferential pricing and value-adds, including a complimentary practice opportunity assessment.
