Halle Capital Management (“Halle”), a New York-based growth equity investment firm, today announced it has made a new investment in Planet Smile Partners (“PSP”), a new pediatric dental services organization and orthodontics (“DSO”).
PSP provides clinicians with a range of administrative services, alleviating the burden on providers who have to manage many tedious aspects of their practice, and allowing clinicians to focus on delivering world-class oral health services to their patients. .
In conjunction with Halle’s investment, PSP will initially partner with a group of New York-based dental practices currently known as Dentistry for Children Westchester (“DFC Westchester”). Dr Gary Heitzler, founder of DFC Westchester, will be the CEO of Planet Smile Partners and be responsible for scaling its platform and leading its strategic business initiatives.
“I am delighted to partner with a DSO that shares the values on which DFC Westchester was built,” said Dr. Heitzler. “Planet Smile Partners has a cutting edge team and we look forward to working closely with like-minded dental practices to help them better serve their communities. “
“We are proud to invest in PSP’s strong, culture-driven leadership team,” said JP Gutfreund, Managing Partner of Halle Capital Management. “Dr. Heitzler and his team are committed to providing exceptional clinical care to children in our served communities and to supporting our practitioners with a full range of services and tools to facilitate their work. We look forward to a long and successful partnership. “
Planet Smile Partners intends to continue to partner with pediatric and orthodontic practices in the North East to become a leading regional DSO.
