Progressive Dental (PD) is among 50 Florida companies expected to show significant growth in coming years. PD was selected from more than 500 candidates for Florida Companies to Watch, a statewide program managed by economic development group GrowFL, in connection with the Edward Lowe Foundation. “These stand-out companies are all led by entrepreneurs, and have demonstrated their capacity and intent to grow,” said Dr. Tom O’Neal, executive director of GrowFL. “They all have critical intellectual property or a niche position that gives them a competitive edge in their markets.”

Progressive Dental is a dental marketing and practice growth firm focused on developing clinicians, their staff and their practices in order to connect them with patients in need of quality care. PD’s business model, competitive market position and community involvement were among several key factors that put the company in the running for this honor.

“This is a strong group of companies that deserve this special recognition given annually to the state's top second stage companies,” said Dr. O’Neal. Second-stage companies are defined as those with six to 150 full-time employees and between $750,000 and $100 million in annual revenue. GrowFL is a program that promotes start-up businesses and focuses exclusively on second-stage Florida companies.

Enhancing dental professionals’ web presence, social media campaigns and print media is just the beginning. PD’s CEO, Bart Knellinger, leads the fastest growing continuing education (CE) course in the dental industry, Catalyst. The company has also received numerous accolades including securing a firm ranking in the Inc. 500 list for two consecutive years, and the Inc. 5,000 list in 2016, while also ranking fifth among the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s 50 fastest growing companies in the Tampa Bay area.

Each year, PD’s objective is to continue to further improve alongside the ever-evolving dental industry to offer the latest, innovative and effective marketing techniques that expand dental practices and offer cutting-edge care.
