Dentist Entrepreneur Organization acquires 2 businesses

Austin, Texas-based Dentist Entrepreneur Organization, a group that supports dental leaders on the journey from a practice to a self-managing organization, has acquired both Traction for Dental and JoyFull People, according to a Nov. 3 news release.

Traction for Dental is the only certified EOS implementation business focused solely on multi-location dental companies. Its sister company, JoyFull People, offers 24/7 online curriculum for finding, managing and growing dental teams.

"Many of our fastest growing member businesses were already working with Traction for Dental, and many more were preparing to," said Jacob Puhl, CEO of the DEO. "We serve the same unique market in two totally symbiotic ways, so growing into one company was inevitable and exciting."

The acquisition of Traction for Dental will immediately result in the formation of the DEO coaching and implementation unit, of which Josey Sewell, co-founder of Traction for Dental, will be CEO.

"Now, more than any other time in history, dentistry is seeing how valuable its teams really are," said Eric Roman, DDS, co-founder of JoyFull People. Dr. Roman will be responsible for developing the DEO product through training and leadership development.
