Dental Associates was founded in 1973 by Dr. John Gonis. In 2009, Dr. Tom Manos purchased the company and remains the owner today. The premier dental practice is headquartered in Milwaukee and has 10 locations across Wisconsin with a total staff of 769, including 90 dentists. Dental Associates provides complete family dental services for clients ranging in age from tiny tots to senior citizens. They are committed to providing excellent, affordable, personalized, and accessible care. Dental Associates currently performs over 990,000 procedures annually and over 500,000 patient visits across their locations.
In July of 2012, Tom was interested in buying the real estate of all the Dental Associates locations. With the help of multiple SBA 504 loans provided by WBD and financing from MB Financial Bank, N.A., he was able to purchase 9 of the 10 locations. These purchases helped create 6 jobs, supporting economic development in multiple Wisconsin communities.
