COO, CENTRAL ATLANTIC REGION
Christy Englehart brings 30 years of dental experience to her role as Chief Operating Officer for the Central Atlantic Region. She returned to Smile Brands in March 2017 as Regional Vice President for the East and has now expanded her responsibilities to oversee operations in Texas, Arkansas, Florida, Tennessee, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana.
Christy has spent 17 years with Smile Brands plus seven as Chief Operating Officer for two regional dental support organizations: Sage Dental (formerly Gentle Dental of Florida) and Marquee Dental Partners. She began her career as a dental assistant in her hometown of West Plains, Missouri. After moving to Austin, Texas, Christy joined a group practice, which shortly thereafter was acquired by Castle Dental Centers, Inc.
Christy held successive roles with increasing responsibility that continued after Smile Brands acquired Castle, eventually being promoted to Vice President of Operations for Houston. In 2007, Christy received Smile Brands’ highest honor, the President’s Award, for her exceptional performance and embodiment of the organization’s Smiles for Everyone® mission.
Christy has accumulated deep and broad experience throughout her career, but the most valuable skill she brings to Smile Brands is her ability to build, align, integrate and empower teams to achieve a common goal.
