Southern Illinois dentist enters into deal with Tralongo to expand business
Dr. Laney Schuman, who has been providing dentistry to Madison County residents for two decades, has entered into a partnership agreement with Atlanta-based Tralongo LLC, a dental-practice acquisition business, to further enhance her growing practice in Southern Illinois.
The Tralongo team consists of dental, marketing, financial and business experts who collaborate with dentists wishing to focus more on business by acquiring and operating multiple practices.
“Dr. Schuman is yet another excellent addition to our constantly expanding roster of alliance partners,” founder and CEO Dr. Ken Tralongo said. “She is a staple in the communities she serves and provides exceptional dental care while being committed to providing her patients with a friendly and pleasant environment. We certainly look forward to helping Dr. Schuman grow her practice and achieve her career goals.”
Having built her practice over the past decade, Schuman, who graduated from Southern Illinois University’s School of Dental Medicine, hopes to reach more patients in the Metro-East region and greater St. Louis area.
“I have been thinking about stepping away from the chair and focusing more on running a business for some time now,” Schuman said. “Tralongo can provide me with a proven system … as I move forward on this new career path. Tralongo’s vast experience in acquiring practices is exactly the missing piece I need to help me grow my network quickly and effectively, while allowing me to become more involved in my community.”
Schuman belongs to numerous professional organizations, including the American Dental Association and the Illinois State Dental Society.
