Gen4 Dental Partners, a Thurston Group portfolio company based in Tempe, AZ, announced the acquisition of Bay Area Dental, a multi-location dental practice in the San Francisco, CA, bay area.
Founded and led by Joseph Field, DDS, FAAID, FICOI, FAGD, DABOI/ID, the group includes two locations in Los Altos, plus practices in Mountain View and Cupertino, CA. The addition expands the fast-growing Gen4 Dental Partners platform, which has 46+ locations in markets in Arizona, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Utah, Texas, Minnesota, and now California.
“Bay Area Dental is one of the elite implant, orthodontic, and cosmetic dentistry practices on the West Coast,” enthused Gen4 Dental Partners Chief Executive Officer Lamonte Jensen. “We’re looking forward to working with Dr. Field and his team. They will be terrific partners.”
Dr. Field said Bay Area Dental’s 16 dentists are committed to cutting-edge dental technology, such as CBCT 3D imaging, laser-assisted tissue regeneration, Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) enhanced healing for implants, IV sedation, veneers, and 3D printing of crowns and bridges. But it’s not just about technology for technology’s sake.
“Patient care is the cornerstone of our practice,” Dr. Field said. “We are dedicated to providing the highest quality care that focuses on the patient experience, meticulously and individually designed for each patient.”
“Gen4 seemed a natural fit for us,” he added. “Their vision of all-star doctors collaborating to elevate patient-centric dentistry resonates with us, and their top-tier back-office support will free us to expand our premier-quality dental care to even more patients. We’re looking forward to growing together.”
