Dental Support Groups
We are a us based investment firm that is looking to speak with someone that has created or run a dental support group of 10+ practices. Likely this would be a ceo, coo of dso. Or on the non-operations side if you have private equity or investment experience investing in dental support platforms.
A few things we would like to understand are:
a) is the dso industry still attractive for new dso formations, or has the opportunity passed?
B) when it comes to exit valuation multiples, it appears that there are tiers, with multiples increasing as ebitda increases. What are these tiers?
C) what is the best location in the continental us to begin and develop a new dso?
D) help with understanding and navigating the laws and how a dso structures dental practice acquisitions in differ, and how to navigate the state of kansas’ laws would be a huge plus+25 Other Responses

topic and prompt
the american academy of pediatrics is calling for secondary schools to push back their start times by an hour or more to at least 8:30 a.M. The move would better align teens’ natural sleep patterns, which make it hard for them to fall asleep before 11 p.M., with school schedules, said the group, the nation’s largest organization of doctors who care for children.
The litany of woes linked to a lack of sleep is long, going well beyond teenagers dozing off during first period or loading up on caffeinated drinks to stay awake. Along with suffering academic performance, sleep-deprived teens are more likely to have car accidents and to struggle with mental health issues including depression, and with weight gain, according to a policy statement published in the journal pediatrics.
By the time they are in sixth grade, most american students are already falling short in the sleep department. Just 41 percent get the recommended 8.5 to 9.5 hours a night, according to a national sleep foundation poll. The statistics get worse as they get older, with 13 percent of high school students getting the amount of rest they need, the poll found.
