Why Dental365 has targeted Pennsylvania for expansion

New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Dental365 has been active in their expansion throughout Pennsylvania since making their first addition in the state in 2023.

The company first entered Pennsylvania with the acquisition of the six-location group practice in September 2023. In January, Dental365 brought in another group with six locations. 

Dental365 is continuing to be active in the state, adding a 13th Pennsylvania practice in April.   

Entering Pennsylvania was a "logical step" for Dental365, based on proximity to the company's New York headquarters. 

"It's a really diverse state. It has some concentrated urban areas and there are many rural [areas] where there's a lot of need, and it's just filled with hardworking, good people," Robert Kolts, DDS, senior vice president of clinical affairs at Premier Care Dental Management, the parent company of Dental365, told Becker's earlier this year. "It's an area where it's not overly saturated with dental support organizations and there's a need for increased access to providers."

The DSO is looking to ride the momentum it has built in Pennsylvania and is looking to strengthen its position in the state. 

"We are looking at probably another 10 additional practices [in Pennsylvania] that we're evaluating specifically," said Dr. Kolts. "We're looking really to repeat what we've done in other areas, which is to build an ecosystem."

Dental365 has been successful in building an ecosystem in other states in the Northeast, supporting more than 100 total practices across New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island in addition to Pennsylvania.
