THE COMPANY WE KEEP
Lead the Industry With Leadership
The Experience Delivering The EXPERIENCE
The FLOSS team was carefully put together to create and curate A NEW Experience in Dentistry. Although knowledge of dentistry must be at the core of this group’s mind-spring, a strong business savvy is also required to grow the mission on a grand scale. Carefully growing a strong brand vision leveraging the corporate franchise model in a whole new way requires a team with knowledge and experience in all of that. The small group of executives leading FLOSS has what it takes.
Dr. Michael Tran
Dr. Michael Tran grew up in Sugar Land, TX and attended Texas Tech University where he earned dual Bachelor degrees in business management and Spanish. Dr. Tran also obtained his MBA degree from Texas before he went on to complete his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at Howard University in Washington, DC. Returning back home, he completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
Always focused on creating and delivering a new experience in dentistry and being fully prepared to do so, Dr. Tran is a member of numerous dental associations including the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Texas Dental Association, and Houston Dental Society. With a true commitment to advanced education, he actively participates in study clubs and continuing education courses ensuring he is leading the FLOSS mission well informed.
When Dr. Tran isn’t practicing dentistry on a FLOSS level, he enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. Dr. Tran loves to travel, explore new restaurants and is always exploring every way he can do more to stay fit.
DR. MINESH PATEL
Dr. Minesh Patel is a native Texan who was born and raised in Houston. He is the numbers guy, and keeps us all on track as we work to achieve the FLOSS vision every day. He attended college at Texas A&M University in College Station and earned a degree in Management-Small Business & Entrepreneurship. After his time at Texas A&M, he went on to obtain his D.D.S. from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas. When Dr. Patel moved back home to Houston chose to join FLOSS.
Aside from being a dentist and FLOSS owner, Dr. Patel has a wife, two daughters, two dogs, and enjoys spending time with his family. He enjoys traveling and watching sporting events, and is always up for a new restaurant. Dr. Patel strives to build both a professional and personal relationship with every one of his patients. He brings another perspective on creating the experience and image we all strive to create at FLOSS.
Damien A. Morales
Damien Morales grew up slightly north of the other FLOSS executives in Dallas, Texas and graduated from the University of North Texas. He’s our resident torch bearer for the brand, and does an excellent job of making great handoffs of the FLOSS brand to those new franchisees who choose to carry the torch next.
He offers a distinct depth of experience that allows him to select and onboard franchisors that he predicts will make positive contributions to the growing FLOSS network. As a seasoned professional with industry leaders like FLOSS Dental, Golds Gym International Franchising Corporation and Images 4 Kids Franchising Corporation, his knowledge is leveraged to help guide FLOSS Franchise Development. He also serves his county as a non-paid public official as the Parks District Commissioner.
FLOSS has leveraged his new ideas, perspectives, specialized franchise development and operational techniques that have been previously proven successful to profitably grow the franchise business. When Damien isn’t helping us fly FLOSS, he also enjoys using his private pilot’s license to fly around the country. Any other time he is spending time with his two daughters keeping them from growing up too fast.
