The Inc. 5000 annual list of America’s fastest-growing privately held companies for 2018 has been released and there are 26 dental companies on the list this year. Out of those 26, 16 are dental care providers with a mix of DSOs, single location dental practices, and dental group practices. We included not only dental support organizations and dental group practices on our abbreviated list, but other dental related companies that dental groups and DSOs may partner with for services and/or products.
This highly anticipated list ranks companies by overall revenue growth over a three-year period. No company on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list has grown by less than 50 percent over the past three years. To make the even more exclusive Inc. 500 list this year, a company had to grow by more than 1,000 percent.
