Founded in 2011 by David Janash, DMD, Underbite is a New York City-based dental management group. The company’s transparent, dentist-focused model provides practices of all sizes with centralized tools and resources to help them grow and thrive.
Combining personalized strategies and a distinctly New York ethos with the same tactics used by much larger DSOs, Underbite Management offers a comprehensive slate of services and solutions designed to protect practices from the seismic shifts happening in the dental industry.
Underbite Management’s strategy is diverse. They have been involved in acquisitions, chart mergers, office expansions, and even office sublets. Underbite has taken offices that are simple “bread and butter” general practices and turned them into efficient, multi-specialty dental centers with a significant increase in with a focus on case acceptance. In a “vertical city” with residents and visitors from around the world where space is at a premium, it is critical to be a 360-degree solution for patients, offering the basics as well as complex high-tech and cutting-edge procedures and philosophies.
Underbite Management is particular about the “bones” of each practice they work with. The team has to be great and share core values, and the patient and procedure mix has to have potential and a willingness to grow and improve. They look for areas to combat inefficiency and opportunities to expand the repertoire of services offered, while keeping a careful watch to ensure the facility and team aren’t overwhelmed.
A six-operatory practice collecting $1.6M a year increased to $2.4M a year by making small, strategic changes using Underbite Management’s network of providers, resources and services. The value of the practice raised from $1.25M to an estimated $2.1M in a few short weeks.
A mature five-operatory partnership collecting $950K per year goes awry when one partner becomes disabled. After finding a buyer, the landlord informs them that their lease will not be renewed. Underbite merges the charts of this practice into one of their offices and a strategic plan is put into place. The remaining partner now generates over $1.6M, has all his headaches eliminated, and is taking home a significantly higher income.
