Dental Care Alliance Welcomes Clinical Innovator to Team
Sarasota, FL – Dental Care Alliance (DCA) is delighted to announce the addition of Bryan Laskin, DDS, to its forward-thinking leadership team. Leveraging his demonstrated passion for elevating healthcare through teamwork and technology, Dr. Laskin will lead Clinical Innovations, drive continuous improvement and affect meaningful change across the DSO’s growing network of dental practices.
In late 2018, Lake Minnetonka Dental and Four Seasons Dental, two leading practices in the state of Minnesota led by Dr. Laskin and his impressive team of dental professionals, joined Dental Care Alliance.
Dr. Laskin will continue to practice and remain involved in the pioneering company he founded, Operability, which developed myriad dental game-changing technologies including the communication suite OperaDDS, as well as the first system to virtually reduce dental pain and anxiety, OperaVR. He serves as counsel for the most innovative dental companies in the world and enjoys bringing others’ transformational ideas to the world of dentistry.

This consistent drive to try new things, and to learn from them, empowers our teams to improve and innovate,” shared Chief Revenue Officer, James Nick. “Having a leader focused on driving innovation, with the energy and experience of Dr. Laskin, is a tremendous differentiator for DCA, and aligns perfectly with our mission, vision and values.”
Dr. Laskin graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and is an active member of the American Dental Association, Minnesota Dental Association and Minneapolis District Dental Society. He also hosts the widely acclaimed podcast, The Operatory.
“DCA’s impressive legacy is due, in large part, to the high-caliber talent inside our affiliated practices.

Being a sole practitioner for 17 years with multiple locations in different cities was a wonderful opportunity and experience for me. I absolutely loved every minute of it. During those 17 years, I thought I had seen everything, and overcome pretty much every challenge imaginable, but who could have imagined COVID-19 and the economic struggles we are all facing in 2020?
Having DCA as a business partner during this unprecedented tragedy has provided a wealth of support, expertise and team work I could never have experienced as a sole practitioner. During this difficult time, DCA has shown tremendous support to staff, has leveraged powerful supply chain support, answered every call and offered the depth of experience only a seasoned DSO can offer.
Myself and my entire team deeply appreciate all DCA has done and continues to do as we all work to come out of this struggle together. It is a pleasure to work with the professionals at all levels of DCA and we note the sincere and genuine leadership. I am happy to have somewhere to turn for solutions I could not possibly offer on my own as a single proprietor.
