Dental Care Alliance (DCA) is regarded as one of the largest, most supportive, and forward-thinking dental support organizations (DSOs) in the industry. That reputation begins with its patient-focused front-line office staff and exceptional providers who give so much to advance the practice of dentistry and provide exceptional patient care; and is supported by its service-minded Support Center team members.

With more than 400 offices in 23 states, Dental Care Alliance is poised for enduring and intentional growth in its mission to support likeminded practices and providers, to reach more patients in need. Paramount to these efforts is an aligned leadership team with shared goals to build on the success achieved over the last three decades. To that end, DCA is pleased to announce its next phase of leaders to drive anticipated and continued growth.

James Nick, who previously served as Chief Revenue Officer, has been named Chief Operating Officer for DCA. Nick will oversee multiple support functions that help ensure growth for DCA’s allied practices, including operations, marketing, analytics, and insurance contracting and management.

James joined Dental Care Alliance in March 2018. Prior to DCA, he was Director of Specialty Products at Humana.

During this time, James oversaw significant growth in both provider network scope and dental product profitability. James had been with Humana for nearly 12 years with responsibilities spanning pricing, analytics, market management, underwriting, network development, and strategy during that time.
