The affiliation will provide administrative support and services
Smile Brands, one of the nation’s leading dental support organizations (DSO), is pleased to announce its new affiliate partnership with G’s Dental Studio in Cedar Park and Leander, TX.
Dr. Aleksandar Gavrilov and Hristina Kiprovska-Gavrilov founded G’s Dental Studio in Cedar Park in 2011 with the goal of helping patients of all ages enjoy the benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile. They opened the Leander location in 2016 to expand their patient reach in the area and currently lead a team of 14 across both locations. Together, the teams deliver general dentistry, preventive and restorative care, specialty care, cosmetic dentistry, and emergency services.
Having worked at a Castle Dental years ago, Dr. Alex Gavrilov was familiar with the Smile Brands’ culture and operational support. “When we were looking to affiliate with a DSO, Smile Brands was a clear choice,” said Dr. Gavrilov. “The partnership with Smile Brands will allow us to expand our hygiene and perio care while maintaining our current culture,” said Dr. Gavrilov.
Smile Brands will provide administrative support and services to the practices including purchasing, payroll, accounting, IT, billing, facilities management, and marketing. The businesses will continue to operate under the G’s Dental Studio name and the existing staff will remain with the offices.
“We are thrilled to welcome back Dr. Alex Gavrilov and partner with Dr. Hristina Kiprovska-Gavrilov, and their teams,” said Steve Bilt, Smile Brands co-founder, and CEO. “We look forward to helping G’s Dental Studio improve their purchasing power and streamline administration in 2022.”
