Paul & Rob

In the fourth episode of The Dental Amigos’ fifth season, “Assembling a Group Practice,” Rob and Paul discuss key differences between growing a DSO “de novo” (as a start-up) and by acquiring existing practices.

They dive into pros and cons of both strategies, such as how branding is often more consistent in a DSO that grows its practice “de novo” and how a DSO acquiring existing practices benefits from having an existing patient database. Then, the Amigos discuss external factors, like the economy and region, that may factor into a DSO’s decision as to whether to pursue a “de novo” or acquisition approach.
