Corporate Director of Human Resources

US Oral Surgery Management

Dallas, Texas



The Rottman Group has been retained to find a Corporate Director of Human Resources, reporting to the Vice President of Human Resources for US Oral Surgery Management (  


US Oral Surgery Management has an outstanding, accomplished executive leadership team.  They have exceeded their development goals and continue to expand.  They also have a PE partner with significant successful history in the provider sector. 


This person will support the VP of Human Resources by leading and managing the human resource department, allowing the VP to focus on the practice integration, corporate strategy, and relationship with the executive leadership and private equity partnership. 




We are in another high growth phase in the physician practice management or shared services organization industry. With new SSOs emerging regularly, there are key factors to consider in making a choice to be a part of one. 

  • Is this the first time for either the executive leadership or the private equity backers to work in a physician practice model?

    • There are many trying to be in the physician SSO business, both as financial backers and as executive leaders. There are very unique dynamics and absolutely a learning curve for those who don’t have extensive experience in the physician space. You don’t want to suffer through either’s learning curve. 

    • USOSM’s executive leadership and private equity partners both have extensive success and experience.

  • How crowded is this specific space?

    • Is this a mature sector? How many other suitors is this physician or group hearing from? 

    • USOSM is the first in the oral surgery space. As a result, you’re able to benefit from the first-mover advantage vs. being part of a crowded sector. 


There are approximately 7,500 oral surgeons in the United States. It is a very fragmented market with 94% or all US oral surgeons operating independently. The oral and maxillofacial surgery market today is approximately $9 billion with an additional $5 billion in dental implant services. 




The initial USOSM platform was formed in November 2017 by RiverGlade Capital and the

Thurston Group through the combination of two oral surgery groups in Austin and Dallas.

The Thurston Group ( and RiverGlade Capital

( both have successful experience working in the practice

management sector across different specialties. 

The initial two anchor practices consisted of 18 physicians in 17 locations. The response has

been very positive and USOSM has already grown to 20 groups consisting of 74 physicians,

operating in 56 locations. There are multiple other groups in the development pipeline in a

multi-state area. They anticipate to continue to add approximately 12 groups per year via

acquisition. Along with this would be the addition of another 10-12 physicians per year via recruitment. 

Another very important thing to point out about USOSM is that before the integration of practices, a full leadership team and infrastructure had been developed. They are not in a “fake it till you make it” mode or mentality. This is a very well thought out, well put together operation you can be proud to represent with confidence of competence. There will also be great key physician support for this person.
