Everyone. Our entire culture is designed to promote WIN-WIN relationships by treating people with respect and pursuing business process excellence that makes it easier to provide great patient care.
At Smile Brands, we believe culture matters. We believe that happier teams lead to happier patients, and we’ve got the happiest team in the dental industry.

Smile Brands provides comprehensive business support services through exclusive long term agreements with affiliate dental groups. Our supported dentists spend more time caring for their patients and less time on the administrative, marketing, and the financial aspects of operating a dental practice. We were founded in 1998 by a management team that included co-founder and CEO Steve Bilt and CFO Brad Schmidt. Through acquisitions and the opening of new dental offices, Smile Brands has become a dominant player in the dental space with a rapidly growing number of affiliated practices across 30 states. The primary equity sponsor of Smile Brands is Gryphon Investors, a leading private equity investment firm focused on investing in physician-centric healthcare businesses.
