Dental365, a chain of dental urgent care clinics affiliated with CityMD in and around New York City, has gone on a holiday shopping spree and plans to open five recently acquired locations early in 2018. Like traditional, physician-based urgent care, Dental365’s model is based on greater convenience on a walk-in basis, with many locations open 7 days a week, often with evening hours. The company says it sees an average of 1,400 new patients monthly in the 14 locations it already owns. It’s not alone in expanding this segment of the market, either; other companies, like ImmediaDent, are also capitalizing on consumers’ expectations for convenience and service that has been modelled in medicine by urgent care.
