founding apex dental partners

After graduating dental school, Dr. Layla Lohmann started her career at a large, national DSO. She loved the support of a well-run business which allowed her the opportunity to focus on patient care without the burdens of independent practice ownership. However, the overly regimented protocols, and short-term patient relationships didn’t align with what she wanted for her career.

 As Dr. Lohmann was encountering the challenges of group practice, David, Matt and herself began to conceptualize a better way.

That’s when they developed the concept we now refer to as Private Practice Reimagined®

What Does PRIVATE PRACTICE REIMAGINED® Mean?

Our Private Practice Reimagined® model sets us apart as a partnership of like-minded dentists, supported by clinical and business professionals who share a common mission to improve the lives of our patients and the communities we serve.

IS APEX the RIGHT PARTNER FOR YOU?

We call ourselves Apex Dental Partners because we aren’t like other DSOs. We are a PARTNERSHIP of like-minded dentists, supported by clinical and business professionals who share a common mission to improve the lives of our patients and the communities we serve.

We view each practice in our network as a member of the Apex Family.

Expanding your leadership potential

“I’d rather spend my time mastering the skills I do well, than working on getting better at things I can only aspire to do at a mediocre level. There are some guys out there that are great at the business side of things, but I learned that the biggest thing holding me back was myself.”

Dr. Bernard Avendanio, Apex Partner since 2027

Financial security & profit sharing

“I was considering many DSOs at the time, but honestly, I wasn’t very impressed until I found Apex. The whole interaction with Apex felt very genuine. It was clear we shared the same values, I admired their unique approach to private practice, and I loved their doctor-focused culture.”

Clinical Autonomy

“Apex has helped me realize my potential to do things I wasn’t comfortable doing before. I’ve still got a little tread left on the tires! I wasn’t ready to give up. When something new comes along, that’s what keeps you going.”
