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. A recent report published in The National Law Journal and Verdict Search identified this verdict No. 11 on the list of the Top 100 largest jury verdicts nationally in 2007.

Following the verdict, the parties entered into negotiations that ultimately led to a settlement agreement signed on February 29, under which the Park Dental doctor group took back rights to 25 of the 31 Park Dental and Dental Specialist clinic spaces in the Twin Cities area. Once the settlement is fully implemented, Park Dental, the
