Park Dental Doctor Group Settles Litigation With Service Provider
Date:12/27/2007

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The dental group that operates the Park Dental and Dental Specialists clinics in Minnesota announced today that it has settled litigation with its administrative service provider, American Dental Partners, Inc. (ADPI) and ADPI's Minnesota subsidiary, PDHC, Ltd.

On December 14, 2007, a Hennepin County Minnesota jury awarded the dental group, known as PDG, P.A., and Dental Specialists of Minnesota, P.A., more than $130 million -- $88 million in compensatory damages and $42 million in punitive damages.

On December 26, the parties reached a settlement agreement. Under the settlement, which is contingent on approval by ADP's lenders, the Park Dental doctor group will take back ownership of most of the 31 Park Dental and Dental Specialists clinic spaces that had been owned by the service provider. The dental group is very pleased with the settlement, according to PDG President Dr. John Gulon.

"Under the agreement we reached with ADP, Park Dental and The Dental Specialists doctors will continue to practice in their current locations and PDG, P.A. will continue to do business under the Park Dental name," Gulon stated. At a few locations, Park Dental will be relocating to new c
