Kevin Cumbus

Co-Founder, Partner & President, Tusk Partners


Kevin Cumbus is the Co-Founder, Partner and President of TUSK Partners. TUSK Partners helps entrepreneurs START, GROW and SELL their DSO or Group Practice through Sell-Side Advisory Services, Capital Solutions and Strategic Consulting. Since 2016, TUSK has consulted with over 150 Group Practice & DSO clients with over 1,200 locations and over $1 Billion in Collections. Kevin is the Managing Partner for all M&A efforts at TUSK.

After spending the first half of his career on Wall Street in finance and investment banking, Kevin has spent the last 15 years of his career in the business of dentistry. He began his dental career at the McGill & Hill Group where he valued and sold over 120 dental practices.

He then joined Affordable Dentures (AD) in an Operations roles where he opened 11 de nova locations and aided in the acquisition of 9 locations. Over the course of his career at AD, he had P&L responsibility for $101MM of revenue.

In 2015, Kevin built his own dental practice, MUNDO Dentistry, a 100% bi-lingual 9 operatory dental practice. Although this practice was a financial success (collecting over $1.3MM in its first full fiscal year), the knowledge he gained through the process is more valuable than any financial gain through the practice. By starting and operating a dental practice, Kevin learned firsthand the challenges, risks and rewards of practice ownership and management. Kevin sold this business in 2018.
