A Collaborative Model for the Future
Founded in 2018 with a vision of creating a collaborative model for the future, Resolute Dental Partners has capitalized on the deep history of our dental practices spanning over fifty years in Connecticut communities. Health care has changed dramatically in the 21st century, and as we have seen the contraction of medicine and dentistry into larger corporate models, the personalized care that patients seek and desire has commonly suffered. In addition, dentists have frequently lost their ability to sustain an independent practice, lost their clinical autonomy, and have been faced with the new complexities of insurance, finance, labor law, and the pressures of competing with big business.
Resolute was built on a belief that there is a better way to serve our dentists, our team members, and most importantly, our patients. We feel that being “doctor-owned” is a critical factor in maintaining our commitment to the delivery of optimal patient care within the communities in which we work and live. Our collaborative model allows us to share resources, technology, clinical intellect, and experiences throughout our organization. This synergy builds a vibrant atmosphere of personal growth for all of our doctors and team members and allows us to put our patients first at all decision points. We believe that the result is the creation of a sustainable dental community that will navigate the ever-changing tides of dentistry, while never compromising our beliefs, vision, and values. This is the legacy of Resolute.
