ORANGE, Calif., Jan. 2, 2019 Premier Dental Holdings, Inc., parent of Western Dental Services, has completed the purchase of EyeMax Vision Plan, a Knox-Keene licensed specialized health care service plan for vision.

EyeMax recently completed the build-out of its network and obtained regulatory approvals. The plan has a statewide license to operate in California and an attractive contracted network of more than 1,200 individual and group vision care providers, 90 percent of whom are located in close proximity to Western Dental Offices. The network also includes multiple vision laboratories.

“Our strategy is to offer vision as a value-added product with our group and individual dental plans,” said Daniel D. Crowley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Western Dental. “Vision plans can be offered on a standalone basis or with our individual dental plans to patients at the time of service in our offices. Individual vision plans will also be available online, and group vision coverage will be offered to organizations alongside our dental plans.”
Mr. Crowley added: “This is a very complementary strategic addition to our firm that will provide patients with convenient vision benefit options while opening a highly synergistic new pathway for our firm to grow.”

The transaction closed Dec. 31, 2018. Terms were not disclosed.
