WOODBRIDGE, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 2, 2018--Light Wave Dental Management (“Light Wave”), a portfolio company of Alpine Investors V SBIC, LP and its affiliates (together, “Alpine”), announces the affiliation of Blue Ridge Dental Group, McMillan Sedation Dentistry, Yorkshire Family Dentistry and Hayes Family Dentistry. With these partnerships, Light Wave, a dental support organization for top-tier dental practices, now provides management services to 20 locations throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Founded in 2010 and a staple in its communities, Blue Ridge Dental Group has grown to seven locations and 10 doctors in and around Roanoke, VA. Blue Ridge is led by Dr. Greg Harvey, who joins Light Wave’s management team as the Regional Director for Southwest Virginia. “All of us at Blue Ridge Dental Group have taken pride in serving the patients of the Roanoke area for many years,” said Dr. Greg Harvey. “We are now very excited to partner with Light Wave Dental as we look to expand our positive impact in Roanoke and its surrounding communities.”

As a leading cosmetic dentistry practice in Burke, VA, McMillan Sedation Dentistry has a compassionate focus on providing patients with comprehensive dental care. “After 33 years of providing comprehensive general, cosmetic, implant, and sedation dentistry to the Northern Virginia area as a total solutions provider, I am excited to announce my new partnership with Light Wave Dental, a leader in the dental support field,” said Dr. Alex McMillan IV. “This partnership will allow my team and I the opportunity of continuing to provide the same patient care and comfort-focused dentistry that we always have, with the added benefit of Light Wave’s significant resources.” Dr. Alex McMillan IV has more than three decades of advanced training in cosmetic and implant dentistry and is among a very small number of dentists that are Licensed and Certified to perform IV Sedation in office.
