Patrick O’Rourke Named CEO of TruBlu Dental Network
TruBlu Dental Management is pleased to announce the appointment of Patrick O’Rourke as the CEO of TruBlu Dental Network, LLC, an affiliate of TruBlu Dental Management, Inc. TruBlu Dental Network, LLC, is focused on establishing the largest network of technology-forward dental practices in the United States and securing network agreements with the leading dental insurance providers, enabling independent dental practices to achieve fuller and fairer value for the exceptional dentistry they provide. O’Rourke is responsible for rolling out TruBlu Dental Network on a state-by-state basis. In this capacity, he will report to Alex Sadusky, the CEO of TruBlu Dental Management, Inc.
As a national public speaker, O’Rourke educates dentists on how dental managed care participation impacts up to 50 percent of practice revenue, the importance of diligent contract management, and how to develop criteria specific to a patient acquisition strategy for choosing the best carrier business partners.
“I could not be more excited to have Patrick on the team, both personally and professionally,” Sadusky said. “His commitment to the preservation of private practice dentistry, deep industry expertise, and easygoing and approachable style makes him a wonderful partner and I am thrilled to have him on the senior leadership team as he will help TruBlu continue to ramp up its offerings heading into 2023.”
Members of the TruBlu Dental Network will be able to benefit from his decades of experience as an insurance industry insider in multiple facets: dental network build-out, operations management, dental plan design, and executive leadership. O’Rourke will continue his role as founding partner/CEO of Practice Quotient, a company he founded in 2014. Practice Quotient specializes in dental insurance PPO network contract analytics and reimbursement guidance, representing the dental provider on an individual basis. Practice Quotient increases dental practice revenue by negotiating higher reimbursements from PPO fee schedules.
The primary objective of his firm’s projects is to protect the overall long-term business value of its clients by creating win-win business partnerships with the payor community. “When I met the TruBlu Team and learned about their mission to preserve independent dentistry and level the playing field for independent dentists, I felt moved to be a part of the mission,” O’Rourke said. “Independent dentists are at a distinct disadvantage with larger Dental Service Organizations from a resource and size standpoint when it comes to securing equitable discounts in exchange for network participation with insurance companies. The opportunity to contribute and lead the way towards making a difference for business owners like myself is exciting. The TruBlu Dental Network launched in August 2022, and I look forward to working with our carrier partners who appreciate a high caliber quality of care in California.”
TruBlu Dental Network is hosting two webinars on September 29th and October 6th
