Park Dental Announces Separation From Its Administrative Service Provider
Date:3/3/2008

MINNEAPOLIS, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Park Dental, a Twin Cities area group dental practice that has been a mainstay in the Minnesota Dental community for 40-years, announced today that it has completed a deal under which it is separating its practice from its Boston, Massachusetts-based administrative services provider, American Dental Partners, Inc.

Following a month long trial in late 2007, a Hennepin County, Minnesota jury sided with the dentists, awarding the doctor group more than $130 million, including $88 million in compensatory damages and $42 million in punitive damages.

Once the settlement is fully implemented, Park Dental, the
