Spear Education buys Pride Institute

September 06, 2018 Scottsdale, Ariz. — Dental continuing education provider Spear Education acquired Pride Institute, a California-based industry authority, according to a Sept. 4 news release.

"Pride Institute is one of the most respected names in practice management," said Spear President Rezwan Manji in the release. "Their approach to dental consulting aligns perfectly with Spear's philosophy and Practice Solutions consulting model. We are excited to incorporate Pride Institute's decades of knowledge and expertise to help our clients and their teams achieve their practice goals."

Dr. Jim Pride, a longtime advocate for increased education to help dentists balance the clinical and business demands of their practices, founded the Pride Institute in 1974 to deliver information and counsel in every aspect of practice management.
"When Dr. Pride passed away in 2004, we made a promise that we would carry on his legacy, utilizing new models and new methods to create success. It has been 14 years and all of us at Pride Institute continue to pursue that vision," said Amy Morgan, Pride's CEO, in the release. "We are excited to join Spear Education and take Dr. Pride's vision to the next level."

With its campus and headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, Spear was founded in 2007 and is a provider of multiplatform continuing education and practice growth resources for dental professionals.
