Salt Dental Collective, a dental partnership organization focused on pediatric dentistry and orthodontics in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Arizona and California and a portfolio company of Latticework Capital Management, has added Dylan Bates as its new chief executive officer.

Bates has experience in leadership roles in multi-site healthcare. Most notably, he was part of the scaling of ATI Physical Therapy from its original single location to over 800 locations at the time of his exit in 2018. Bates has been an active Salt board member since its inception in 2019. He has also served as an active board member for several other organizations, including Southern Vet Partners and Therapy Partners Group.

“Dylan’s experience in multi-site healthcare combined with his proven ability to build and lead world class teams will be instrumental for Salt’s continued momentum and success,” comments Steve Neumann, managing partner and founder of Latticework Capital Management. “His knowledge, insights, and relationships make him the ideal person to execute the path forward and accelerate our growth both in our existing markets as well as our entry into new markets.”
