Company

We are a growing organization supporting dental practices around 9 states, predominantly focusing on pediatric dentistry with some general and orthodontics in the mix as well. We are currently in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Mississippi.

Established in 2015, we started with 3 offices and through constant diligence and commitment, now have up to 55 offices with a solid growth plan in place. We don’t have a particular number we are trying to reach but rather are focusing and looking to grow the right way – something we pride ourselves on! We are striving to change the DSO landscape and be different than many of the DSOs out there and in the process truly put a “dent” in dentistry. In addition, we pride ourselves on our mission statement and core values which govern our practice model. We are very culture driven and we are looking for providers who fit our cultural model. In essence, we consider ourselves a dental family and extend that warm reception to our communities. We refer to our patients as “guests,” and support exceptional clinical care. We are looking for a dedicated and motivated provider to join our team who is comfortable treating both children and young adults.
