Tampa, FL – DentalWorks USA has been acquired by Bindley Capital Partners and Brian Bell, the former CEO of ForeSight Medical.
Based in Tampa, DentalWorks USA is the nation’s leader in managing the care and cost of dental and complex maxillofacial injuries for the workers’ compensation industry. Bell has joined DentalWorks’ executive leadership team.
“DentalWorks sets the industry’s highest standards for managing complex dental injures and related trauma,” said DentalWorks CEO Greg Cressman. “We strive to do the very best for our loyal customers and recognize the strategic value of joining forces with leaders who have the depth of workers’ comp experience and the resources that Brian and Bindley Capital bring. This acquisition strengthens our capabilities and propels our expansion into additional highly specialized, outcomes-focused service offerings.”
Bell has 19 years of experience as a workers’ compensation executive with expertise in ancillary healthcare services. He co-founded ForeSight Medical and oversaw its growth into a preeminent surgical management company before its sale to Paradigm Outcomes in 2017. He continued as its CEO and a Paradigm Executive Team member through the enterprise purchase of Paradigm by OMERS.
“We’re very excited to be working with Brian again,” said Tom Salentine, President of Bindley Capital Partners, which backed ForeSight Medical in early 2013. “It was an outstanding experience working with Brian and the team at ForeSight. We are all very enthusiastic about joining DentalWorks and are so impressed with what Greg and his team have built. We are looking forward to helping continue the great work they’ve done.”
Prior to ForeSight, Bell held positions at workers’ compensation focused companies that specialized in managing pharmaceutical, physical therapy, home health, and related ancillary medical services and equipment.
“DentalWorks has a great reputation as a high-performing, customer-centric company that serves the specialized needs of injured workers in a field where skilled and willing providers are very hard to find,” Bell said. “This company is highly skilled at providing clinically driven, outcomes-oriented offerings. I am excited about helping develop the next generation of specialized solutions for the growing list of customers that count on DentalWorks every day.”
