“At Apex Physics Partners, we believe it is best to first ‘go slow’ to later ‘go fast.’ Having established a solid company foundation with my search fund partner, Keith, we were ready to GO FAST! And that’s why we selected Blue Sea Capital as our partner of choice. Their servant leadership approach and capacity to support transformational growth are second to none.”

“Partnering with Blue Sea Capital has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. The Blue Sea team rolled up their sleeves and helped ‘our little company’ become a dominant force in the dental lab industry. With their natural strengths, outside resources and passion for making good companies great, Blue Sea Capital is more than just an investor, more than friends. They’re family.”

“When we set out to find a strategic partner, we weren’t just looking for capital. We were looking for someone who shared our passion to think big. Value-added and transformational, Blue Sea Capital proved to be the perfect partner to take DECA Dental to the next level. With more offices in Texas than any other DSO and an expanding national footprint, we are quickly becoming the Starbucks of dentistry.”
