Innovative Doctor-Centric Governance Model Drives Tripling of Platform Growth at Allied OMS

Doctors cite the platform’s doctor-majority board composition and proprietary
Power Through Partnership™ System as key factors in joining one of the fastest-growing MSOs for oral and maxillofacial surgery practices.

Southlake, Texas (September 19, 2023) –  Allied OMS is the only doctor-governed MSO for top-tier OMS practices. Since its formation in 2020 by DuneGlass Capital and founding practices Fort Worth Oral Surgery in Texas and Evergreen Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Colorado, the platform has added 30 independent practices, growing to 65 doctors in 12 states across the US in just three years.

Brian Hamilton, Allied OMS’s Chief Development Officer, said that partnerships ticked up significantly in 2022 and 2023 as the platform cemented its reputation for attracting the nation’s leading practices to its doctor-centric management structure, and its immediate impact on financial performance. The platform doubled in revenue and EBITDA, and on average, new practices experienced a 20% increase in profitability after joining the network. Mr. Hamilton added, “Our rapid growth is a direct result of our Power Through PartnershipTM System. Our doctors get an ally with the expertise to seamlessly manage all the financial and administrative functions that drive better economics, better EBITDA, and longer-term profitability, so they can stay focused on best-in-class patient outcomes.”

Allied OMS is owned by the doctors in the network and governed by the industry’s only doctor-majority board. The board is comprised of six doctors, including Jonathon Jundt, DDS, MD, FACS, and Chief of Surgery at Evergreen Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, who also serves as the platform’s Chief Medical Officer. The board is anchored by parent company DuneGlass Capital founders Dan Hosler and Ryan Graham, who serve as Allied OMS’s CEO and COO, respectively. Together they bring more than 30 years of senior healthcare private equity and investment strategy expertise, guiding the platform’s practice management and growth strategy, and managing the executive leadership team in key functional roles including HR, Finance and Accounting, Marketing, Operations, and Data Optimization. The result is greater negotiating power, more equitable contracts, and immediate efficiencies that optimize practice value and drive scalable growth. Doctors remain in control of clinical decision-making and patient care and gain access to cutting-edge best practices from like-minded doctors committed to the highest safety and quality standards. In addition to the 75% doctor-majority board, 100% of Allied OMS’s Management Committees are chaired by doctors in the network.

Jonathon Jundt, DDS, MD, FACS, Allied founder, and Chief Medical Officer, says Allied OMS doctors are empowered to stay at the forefront of technological advances and innovation in patient care.

CEO Dan Hosler attributes their exponential growth in a highly competitive environment to the appeal of the founding vision: a doctor-centric governance and decision-making body backed by unparalleled private equity and operating expertise, saying, “The persistent trend toward consolidation in OMS created a need for a partnership that was not focused solely on size. Our system goes beyond traditional private equity by ensuring the interests of all stakeholders are aligned, providing doctors with better economics at multiple intervals, and creating transparency in all facets of the business model.”

COO Ryan Graham adds, “Our promise is that whether you have just graduated, or have been practicing for decades, this partnership will provide greater fulfillment for you as a surgeon and an industry leader.”

Ryan Graham, COO and founder of Allied OMS, notes that surgeons at every stage of their career will benefit from Allied’s Power Through Partnership™ System.

As part of ongoing development efforts, the Allied OMS Board holds regular events for residents and associates, connecting them with experienced doctors in leadership positions at Allied OMS and in the OMS field. New joiners to the platform cite this access and opportunity to learn from and collaborate with leading surgeons across the network as another core differentiator, and a significant reason for choosing Allied OMS over other networks.

Founding doctor, board member, and Recruitment Committee Chair David Kostohryz, DDS, MD, believes that “This level of engagement and collaboration appeals to the forward-looking doctors we want as our partners. Our model teaches both new and established doctors to be shareholders in the business, and to be purposefully involved in shaping the future of our specialty.” Dr. Kostohryz practices at Fort Worth Oral Surgery and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Allied OMS has quickly risen to prominence in a crowded field of long-established DSOs across the US. In August, Allied OMS was recognized by Becker’s Dental + DSO Review in their 2023 list of DSOs to Know, a competitive national ranking of DSOs and MSOs in dental and oral and maxillofacial surgery.

“We are especially pleased by the broader industry’s response to a governance model that emphasizes quality standards and patient safety,” says Dr. Jundt. ”Our doctors are empowered to stay at the forefront of technological advances and innovation in patient care – including AI and data-based decision making – and our emphasis on sharing our knowledge and best practices benefits the entire field, ensuring a strong pipeline of next-generation surgeons and doctors.”
