We Are a DOO

Dr. Larson & Patient

We are not a DSO; We are a DOO.

One letter makes a world of difference.

KDB differentiates itself as a Doctor Owned and Operated (DOO) organization. We prioritize clinical excellence and patient experience above all. Our dental offices are guided by the leadership and decisions of practicing dentists.

This approach contrasts with the more common Dental Service Organization (DSO) model, which is often owned and heavily influenced by non-clinical corporate entities such as private equity.

Our DOO model, launched by Dr. Brad Roberts in 2000, focuses on organic growth and creating professional development opportunities within the organization. By offering paths to ownership and leadership for our dentists, KDB fosters a unique environment where dentists are not just employees but become stakeholders and decision-makers.

One letter may seem insignificant, but we feel it makes all the difference in the world.
