Private equity firm invests in Ohio DSO

Mentor, Ohio-based Empire Dental Arts announced Jan. 6 that it had received an investment from private equity firm Evolution Capital Partners.

With the funding, Empire Dental Arts plans to expand throughout Northeast Ohio. Empire Dental Arts markets itself as a dental partnership organization that provides centralized administrative services to affiliated practices.

The dental service organization was founded in 2017 by D. Todd Russell, DDS.

"Partnering with Evolution will enable the next phase of our expansion plan," said Dr. Russell, who also serves as the chief clinical officer of Empire Dental Arts. "We are excited about the opportunity to establish a small-scale, patient-focused dental partnership organization in Northeast Ohio, starting with our existing four practices through which we have validated our operational best practices."
