Legacy Dental Group Acquires Chattanooga Family Dentistry

  • Wednesday, November 1, 2023

Legacy Dental Group, a leading dental service organization, announced that it has completed its acquisition of Chattanooga Family Dentistry. This is the fourth acquisition since the company was founded. Headquartered in Chattanooga, the company plans to operate throughout East Tennessee.

“Chattanooga Family Dentistry has built a solid reputation over several years in our area. We share common values including a patient-first philosophy,” said Dr. Charles Ankar, Legacy Dental partner. “We look forward to building on their foundation within the community.”

Legacy Dental Group’s purpose is "to change the face of dentistry in with a mission to provide a path for doctors who want to focus on their patients and a staff focused on opportunities to learn and grow," it was stated.

"Chattanooga Family Dentistry will continue to provide high-quality care and a ‘wow’ experience our patients are accustomed to receiving,” said Dr. Andrew Lunn. “It’s been a great honor for me to serve this community for the last 25 years. With Legacy Dental Group, I will continue to practice and serve patients while utilizing Legacy’s support, experience and new technologies.”

“Once we acquire a practice, we utilize systems that allow doctors to focus more on patient care. We look for practices where the focus is on the patient and staff. Our systems are there to assist and provide ways to improve operations for the doctor, the staff and patients,” said Dr. Parag Soni, Legacy Dental Group, partner.

“We understand that for sellers, the transition is filled with many emotions. Our goal is to make the process as smooth and comfortable as possible,” said partner Shalin Tejani.

“Each acquisition is handled with personal care and attention to detail, ensuring it is a win-win for both parties,” it was stated.

Gina Mount, Legacy Dental’s vice president of operations, said, “I love leading a group of highly motivated employees. From our doctors to our hygienists to our support staff, the focus is to provide the highest quality care for our patients in a relaxed and fun environment.”

Legacy Dental Group was founded by Dr. Ankar, Dr. Soni, Shalin Tejani and Matt Hullander.
