DALLAS, Oct. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beacon Oral Specialists, a portfolio company of Blue Sea Capital, announced today that it has entered into a strategic agreement with Midland Oral Surgery and Implant Centers, expanding Beacon's footprint into the Midwest with this five-surgeon, three-location practice in Chicago. 

Drs. Carlos G. Pagni, Aaron G. Tucke, V. Bill Hajiharis, Faisal A. Khan and Gilbert T. Guajardo practice the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery in the southwest Chicagoland communities of Frankfurt, Tinley Park, and Oak Lawn. Founded more than 50 years ago, Midland Oral Surgery specializes in dental implants, bone grafting, and wisdom tooth extraction while also bringing exceptional surgical skills to the management of hard and soft tissues of the facial region at large. 

"In Beacon Oral Specialists, we found a like-minded partner with the highly experienced team to not only lift administrative duties, allowing us to more fully concentrate on our patients, but to also help us expand in our market," said Dr. Hajiharis. "We share Beacon's priorities of best-in-class patient care and are aligned on goals for the future of our specialty. We're confident our best days are ahead."

With this partnership, its ninth such affiliation in 2022, Beacon grows its oral surgery network to include 21 market-leading oral surgery practices and more than 100 clinicians in nine states and key MSAs in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Southwest, Pacific Northwest, Midwest, and Northern and Southern California. 

"We are delighted to partner with these distinguished surgeons at Midland," said Mike Friguletto, Beacon's CEO. "They are very well regarded by their peers in the region for having built a contemporary practice and for providing great care to their community. Together, we look forward to building upon their foundation to expand their exceptional service in greater Chicagoland and beyond."
