InTandem Capital Partners, LLC (“InTandem Capital” or the “firm”), a healthcare services-focused private equity firm, announced that it has formed beBright (the “company”), a doctor-owned, doctor-led collaboration of several of the industry’s leading pediatric dentistry and orthodontic practices. Born from the desire to integrate patient care and practice operations across two complementary dental specialties, five foundational practices have combined to deliver a new standard in patient care and redefine the norm in dental care for patients, parents, and doctors alike.

Based in Minnetonka, Minnesota, beBright streamlines and integrates the dental experience for children and their parents by providing unified and coordinated care to address the evolving dental care needs of patients throughout their pediatric, adolescent, and adult lives. With seventeen initial offices across Minnesota, Nebraska, and Tennessee, beBright offers comprehensive dental and orthodontic services with a focus on providing expert care in a comfortable and caring environment. The Company aims to raise the bar for the pediatric dental and orthodontic experience of future generations by relentlessly pursuing best-in-class and affordable care.

“Of the many values we hold as sacrosanct in our physician partnerships, shared strategic vision, equal economic footing, and the importance of clinical leadership are among the most important,” said Brad Coppens, Senior Managing Director of InTandem Capital. beBright embodies these values in ways that we could not find in the current provider landscape. We are thrilled to introduce a new approach to the dental market by putting the patient experience first. We are thrilled to introduce Dr. Bobbi Augustyn, one of Minnesota’s most highly regarded pediatric dentists and the former owner of Camp Smile, as the Chief Executive Officer of beBright, and honored to work again with Dr. David Rallis, one of the nation’s leading oral surgeons and the CEO of Paradigm Oral Health, as the Chairman of beBright. The growing professional team at beBright and the exceptional and ambitious pediatric dentists and orthodontists across our company make us proud and excited for the Company’s bright future.”

“I am beyond excited to work closely with the InTandem team to create a new standard of integrated, convenient dual specialty oral care for our patients and their families,” said Dr. Bobbi Augustyn, DDS, Chief Executive Officer of beBright. “The firm’s deep operating and investment expertise, and prior success in building unique, doctor-owned and doctor-led organizations will be invaluable as we aim to expand beBright’s footprint throughout the country via strategic organic and inorganic growth initiatives. Importantly, InTandem also shares our vision for the future of pediatric dentistry and orthodontic services – improving patient outcomes, delivering convenient and unique patient experiences, and providing doctors with a liberating combination of unwavering clinical independence, peer collaboration, and practice administrative and expansion support. We are thrilled to partner with doctors across the country who share our vision and ambition.”
