Something Better

Co-founder Dr. Peter Kelly started his career for a large dental corporation before opening his own private practice.

He learned two valuable lessons:

  • Large corporate dentistry is bottom-line driven. It's less about giving dentists clinical autonomy and more about increasing production numbers.

  • Private practice gives you autonomy, but it’s a struggle to balance business and life goals.

Dr. Kelly envisioned a world where dentists have a better option:

  • Focus on being great clinicians.
  • Build wealth.
  • Have the business support for success.

To achieve this dream, he partnered with an MBA, Matt Robinson, to create Operation Dental.
