Maria Melone
Caber Hill Advisors
Maria G. Melone is a leading M&A advisor in healthcare, with deep knowledge of the dental industry. Her mission is to help both individual businesses and multisite groups navigate the complex landscape of capital or strategic transactions.

Maria has extensive transactional knowledge and brings a wide breadth of skills to the table—particularly in valuation. As a Certified Valuation Analyst, she is an expert in helping clients understand what their business is worth. She determines value based on tangibles like equipment, actual cash flow, and profitability. But she also understands that a more complete picture of a business’s value includes much more, including variables like business climate, market demand, staff retention, customer base, payer base, and competition.

Detail-oriented and team-focused, Maria is a confident, effective negotiator with a strong track record of helping clients close transactions and achieve the best possible outcomes.

Prior to joining Caber Hill Advisors, Maria worked in corporate development for American Dental Partners Inc. During her 10 years with the company, she managed lead generation, valuation, legal-document negotiation, and integration. She also developed a deep understanding of multisite healthcare businesses that informs her insight into the intangible aspects of valuations. Maria founded MORR Dental Solutions in 2012 to provide an investment banking perspective to solo practitioner dentists looking to transition their practices, as well as fill a gap in service for emerging dental group practices. Maria has touched well over 500 dental transactions in her career.

Maria holds a B.A. in economics from Gettysburg College and a Master of Science in accountancy from Bentley College. She received her CPA license in 1998 and became a Certified Valuation Analyst in 2014. Maria is currently on the board of directors of Splice Histology Inc. and serves as the board audit chair for the nonprofit Boston Center for the Arts.

Outside of work, Maria enjoys giving of her time and talent to a variety of non-profits, playing soccer & pickleball, and creating feasts for friends and family.
