About Us

Independent dentistry has never been more complex – but it’s also never had more potential. With all the advances in treatments, products and practice resources, the name of the game is knowing where to go for answers. And who to trust.

Unified Smiles vision is to offer unparalleled support services for independent dentists, helping them thrive in an increasingly competitive environment. Our industry experience and range of service offerings promote effective practice management and growth. We help support dentists throughout all phases of the practice lifecycle by providing exceptional operations management, educational opportunities, and cost savings and revenue enhancement opportunities. These offerings provide dentists with superior business management, and more time to focus on delivering outstanding patient care. This results in increased revenue, profitability, and the ability to create the desired work-life balance. Our goal is to support entrepreneurial dentists in achieving a lifetime of independent practice success.
