Dr. Scott Leune graduated from UT Health Science Center School of Dentistry in 2005. His career began with three start-up dental practices in San Antonio which quickly grew to 80 staff members, 10 dentists and a centralized call center all under the vision and management of Dr. Leune, who was practicing a mere 4 days per month.

In 2011, within only a two-month span, Dr. Leune opened 7 more practices in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. And, such began the making of a very successful dental support organization.

Dr. Leune is the founder of Breakaway Practice, a practice management company which has consulted and helped develop 120 de novos. In addition, the company helps operate 1,000 dental practices through scheduling, insurance, billing, marketing and I.T. services. Recently, Dr. Leune co-founded Dental Whale, an innovative dental company which is implementing a new category of group private practice ownership and management. Some of Dental Whale’s subsidiary companies include the largest dental repair franchise in North America, a successful handpiece repair company, a dental marketing company, a dental practice brokerage firm, a 100-practice DSO, a seminars company, a dental consulting firm and a dental back office services company.
