About Us

Founded in 2003 by two pediatric dentists with just three Denver locations, Lone Peak Dental Group has grown to over 65 offices across 15 states: Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Maryland, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and Washington. Some of our practices are located in areas specifically designed to treat underserved populations. Many of our patients appreciate the geography we’ve selected as they would otherwise have to travel quite far for dental care.

With a strategy of both de novo and affiliations, our pediatric specialty DPO believes in the tradition of community-based dental care. Each of our practices succeed in their mission is to leave no patient untreated regardless of their ability to pay.

Unlike most dental service organizations, Lone Peak is a DPO – Dental Partnership Organization. We foster a team-oriented culture using an owner-doctor model. This model provides true equity participation at the local level. Our partners have a direct impact on their personal success and share in that success. While not all doctors are owners, all our doctors appreciate the clinical autonomy, mentorship opportunities and the back-office support we provide. Our partners are able to be selective with incoming providers into their practices, ensuring their philosophy and brand message remains true. And the associate doctors have opportunities to become future partners within our organization.
