Imagen Dental Partners Expands into its Eighth State with the Addition of Two California Practices, Announces Plans for Continued Expansion in 2022

Imagen Dental Partners


Imagen Dental Partners, one of the fastest-growing DPOs in the country, has expanded into its eighth state, California, welcoming Scripps Rock Dental and Schaffer Dental Excellence. In addition, California practices will benefit from the expert mentorship of Dr. Shivi Gupta and Dr. Tony Hatch, Imagen’s new Clinical Leaders for California.

Imagen DPO®, a Dental Partnership Organization, is a collective of high-performing, technology-forward dental practices. It provides business and education support to independent dentists, enabling them to deliver superior patient care while fostering practice growth and creating long-term wealth. Imagen’s partner dentists retain full clinical autonomy, share their expertise with other partners, and benefit from their practice’s growth and the success of the entire community. Emphasizing technology and mastery of advanced clinical skills, Imagen is at the forefront of true partnership, born from the desire to support doctors performing dentistry at the highest standards.

“We’re delighted to welcome two practices operating at the top of their game to join us at Imagen, enabling us to expand into our eighth state,” says Andrew Jones, Chief Development Officer at Imagen. “With our expansion, we also announce California Clinical Leaders, Dr. Tony Hatch, and Dr. Shivi Gupta, who will mentor and support practices throughout Southern California.”

Many DSOs and DPOs focus on short-term profitability, intending to sell the practice group in a quick flip. Imagen DPO® has a long-term ownership structure with no institutional capital, offering a higher level of alignment with their dentist partners both financially and clinically. Along with robust business support, Imagen provides access to the industry’s most extensive offering of education and mentoring opportunities by Spear Education and CDOCS, enabling dentists to learn from leading educators to expand their skills and elevate their practice teams.

“We are excited to benefit from Imagen’s business management expertise and educational offerings, allowing us to focus on doing what we love—providing the best care to our patients,” says Dr. Shivi Gupta, Imagen Clinical Leader for California. “Imagen has created something unique, and Dr. Hatch and I are thrilled to be the first California practice to join the team. We look forward to continuing to make clinical decisions for our patients and practice while joining a network of like-minded dentists.”

Imagen will continue its rapid expansion throughout 2021 into 2022, including plans to partner with practices in Texas, Ohio, Florida, Michigan, Western Kentucky and Northern Indiana. As a collective of partner doctors working together to raise clinical standards across the country, Imagen offers a unique opportunity for qualified practice owners to accelerate their growth and wealth creation potential.
