Jefferson Dental Clinics marks 50 years in business

Texan provider of dental services attributes success to commitment to providing high-quality, affordable, culturally-relevant dental care for 5 decades

Dallas, Texas

Dallas, TX, Aug. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DALLAS, TX August 10, 2017 - Jefferson Dental Care, a leading dental service organization, marks a half-century of business success in Texas, with a rapidly expanding network of 58 dental offices in Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. The practice recently interchanged ownership in April from LA-based private equity firm Black Canyon Capital to Brentwood Associates.

When Jefferson Dental Care opened in 1967, it took a then unprecedented focus on Hispanic and traditionally underserved communities through a value proposition to provide high-quality culturally-relevant, affordable dental care in a patient-centric environment. This value proposition was and still is unique for an ever-evolving multicultural demographic.  

Jefferson serves more than 200,000 patients annually with a uniquely competitive low pricing schedule, coupled with an in-house Discount Plan and Price Match Promise, all which reduce the financial barriers that prevent many families from seeking care.

Jefferson Dental Care is restating its half-a-century of investment in oral health, through the development of educational and motivational programs that empower and inspire the underserved across Texas. In March, the provider launched a scholarship program to afford young scholars the opportunity to enroll in the National Hispanic Institute, to serve the future leadership needs of the global Hispanic community.

Continuing the reaffirmation of a five-decade long commitment to the Latino community, Jefferson has also launched #EstamosContigo, in partnership with Telemundo, to empower and inform families through a town hall streamed via Facebook Live on May 24 featuring a panel of civil rights activists and celebrity thought-leaders to discuss immigration laws; and an online community on, a site which connects Latinos to resources, a curated collection of stories from Latino influencers, and reengages the Spanish-speaking population that is often overlooked due to barriers in language and access.

Furthermore, the Jefferson Cares Community Wellness Program annually reaches thousands of families at more than 500 events, more than 150 schools and non-profits, and provides upwards of tens of thousands of free dental kits to individuals, children, families and nonprofits.

“We take special pride to ensure our teams deliver the comprehensive dental care, individualized attention and multilingual dental education that our patients deserve,” says Dr. Townsend, Regional Dental Director. “We hire and train the best through our very own Jefferson University, and continue to create benchmarks for industry standards.”

The 50-year commitment to quality care spans both inside and outside the dental offices. Modern state-of-the-art facilities feature the latest in new technology, plus a sleek clinic design with a mini-café bar, and fun, comfortable play and treatment rooms for children.

“We are the difference and change makers in the community. That was our promise 50 years ago, and that is our promise moving into the next 50. We will continue to impact our patients through the high-quality, affordable care that they have grown to expect from Jefferson, and we uphold our position as a legacy-brand for tens of thousands of households across Texas,” says Christopher Strong, Chief Executive Officer of Jefferson Dental.
