Why DecisionOne?

DecisionOne is the brainchild of two brothers born and raised in Chicago.  After finishing dental school at Creighton, Dr. Mike Acierno went into private practice and Dr. AJ Acierno took the route of corporate dentistry.  They saw the benefits and downfalls of both types of dentistry and knew there had to be a way to take the best of both worlds and forge a new path in the field of dentistry.

The result?  DecisionOne Dental Partners.  At DecisionOne Dental, we truly believe we are changing the way dentistry is done to improve lives.  We truly see ourselves as your advocate.  This means we're taking things back to the basics and focusing on what matters the most - what's best for our patients and our team members.

With DecisionOne, you're part of something more.  You're not an employee, you're a team member.  Even bigger than that, you're family.  If this sounds like what you've been looking for, contact us to join our alliance.

By blending the values of a solo practitioner office with the business concepts of a large group practice, DecisionOne has formed a tested and proven partnership model that will lead dentistry into the new age while putting patients first.

On May 3, 2017 our CEO Dr. Alan J. Acierno was given the opportunity to speak on the subject of Shifting Paradigms at North Park University's TEDx event.  His topic was "Healthcare Has Lost Its Soul."  Learn more about the event here


When we founded DecisionOne Dental Partners, we had no idea how the world of dentistry would change.  With an increase in overhead, lower reimbursement, the emphasis on insurance, and growing complexities in business, dentists are losing sight of what's most important - the patient.

At DecisionOne, we still value the autonomy that dentists can create in their individual practices and the relationships they enjoy with their patients and families.  We focus on maintaining what you, our professionals, have built and work to help make it become even better.  Whether you're just graduating, are ready to retire, or simply want to focus more on your patients, our solution allows dentists to decide on a customized career strategy that works for them.  It's a strategy that yields very competitive compensation without paying hefty commissions.

If this sounds like what you've been looking for, please join our alliance as we change the way dentistry is done to improve lives.
