4 dental-medical MSOs to know

Several organizations supporting dental and medical organizations have launched in recent years as consolidation efforts continue in the healthcare industry. 

Additionally, some of these organizations have invested in opening medical-dental integrated offices to advance integrated care. 

Here are four medical-dental MSOs to know:

PDS Health (Henderson, Nev.)

Pacific Dental Services recently transformed into PDS Health, a comprehensive healthcare support organization, and is building on its origins as a dental support organization to improve patient care and further advance dental-medical integration. 

PDS previously accomplished milestones in dental-medical integration, including the implementation of Epic across all of its dental practices. It also opened multiple co-located dental and medical practices in Las Vegas and entered a joint venture with MemorialCare to open co-located oral health and primary care practices in California. 

PDS Health supports more than 4,600 clinicians across nearly 1,000 practices in 24 states, the release said.
