Our Team

William Mauthe III, DDS

Owner and Chief Dental Officer

Dr. Mauthe believes that a trusting dentist-patient relationship is the basis of any successful dental practice.  Patient care is at its best when your neighborhood dentist knows you and takes a genuine interest in your well-being.  As the costs of education and technology continue to increase, the dream of a dentist owning his or her practice is getting more difficult to realize.  Dr. Mauthe is committed to preserving this relationship and this dream for a new generation of patients and dentists.

A number of trends in dentistry are concerning to Dr. Mauthe:  government regulation, insurance intrusion, costly technology and the expansion of faceless “chain-store” dentistry.  Given the expenses and regulatory hurdles that exist for young dentists, Dr. Mauthe saw the need for an attractive alternative to starting a practice, traditional associateship, or corporate dentistry.  With experience in dental practice acquisitions he decided to acquire the practices of retiring dentists and offer partial ownership to the very best associates who would lead their teams in a way that preserves private-practice dentistry and the integrity of the practice.

Dr. Mauthe knows dentistry and the marketplace for dental practices .  He and the Modern Dental Care team know how hard a dentist has worked to build a practice and can offer not only an agreeable price but a transition built around the dentist’s terms.  A full-time dentist, Dr. Mauthe also mentors the doctors of Modern Dental Care to achieve clinical excellence.  A degree in business, finance and management from Indiana University followed by a dental education at Marquette University give him a unique perspective and skill set.
