Dentize Me! Another dental “franchise” unleashed on the unsuspecting public or a con man at play?


Meet, Nathan Nead of Maple Valley, Washington.  He’s one busy man! He's into a whole lot of internet businesses. And honestly, not very good at it, since he doesn’t even change the website design, just slaps another name on it.  Kinda like scraping the name off the door and putting up another one.  In the past he’s represented himself to be an Insurance Exchange, Energy Retailer (Enron?), Digital Signage, Pressure Washer, IRA and 401K Manager, and today he’s selling $25k pieces of a corporate dentistry franchise called Dentize. The insurance exchange thing got him into a bit of trouble with the Kansas Insurance Commissioner.  Here Offers Dental Franchise Information for New Investors

03/31/2012 // Seattle, Washington , United States // // is proud to announce that it is offering dental franchise information to potential new investors. This information, conveniently located on its website gives a comprehensive overview on investment, returns, and other details to candidates who are interested in becoming franchise owners.

Dentize offers investors the unique chance to gain a fully managed dental franchise with absentee ownership that has the potential to generate increased annual profits up to 40 to 60 percent more within five years. Dentize believes that it offers a good opportunity to get involved with a dental franchise without having the limitations of traditional business ownership. According to the American Dental Association, the dental industry is one of the most stable in the country and has a historical success rate of 98 percent. What sets Dentize’s offer apart from traditional franchises is that it requires little human resource expenditure and no investment in inventory or dental facilities.

The capital investment in this model requires $200,000 with the possibility to make payments in $25,000 increments. Dentize works with a select network of successful dentists who work out of facilities that are often at capacity and attract viable patients who value oral health care and possess the financial means to receive quality dental services. The patients’ payments are then divided between the franchise owner and the dentist who provided the services. The franchise owner may choose to operate the day-to-day business with limited responsibilities or leave it in the hands of an authorized management institution. Professional management services bank on a five year track record of success and will organize all of the activities related to the business and ensure the continued attraction of customers.

“We work with a select group of people who have proven to be a success in their respective fields,” said Ryan Ray, VP of Marketing. “Therefore, we offer our potential investors a fantastic business opportunity with all of the pieces already put in place to give the business the best chance of growth and profitability.”

Ideal candidates for Dentize Franchise Owners include individuals who have experience as business or franchise owners or those seeking to build their own first opportunities in either. Successful executives who wish to replace or increase their income, self directed IRA owners who want to recover recent market losses, dental practitioners who are looking for an alternative to working with an associate dentist, among others are also considered to be viable candidates for the opportunity.

********************************** was founded by a group of business and dental professionals who specialize in marketing, dentistry, and business finance. Since establishing its franchise model five years prior, Dentize has been working actively with investors, dentists, and business professionals to maintain a standard quality of service across the board.

Upon further investigation it appears Nathan Nead has tried other scams. He tried another Internet business called My HIX Insurance Exchange and the State of Kansas ordered him to stop representing himself to be a “state-sponsored” insurance exchange since he was not authorized.
