#1 Ranked Healthcare Provider on Comparably’s Top 100 Happiest Employees List

Smile Brands Inc. has been named one of the happiest companies in the US by workplace culture and compensation monitoring site, Comparably. Smile Brands, a leading dental support organization with nearly 440 affiliated practices across 18 states, has a deeply rooted culture founded in the company’s mission to deliver Smiles for Everyone®. The Happiness Award is the latest in a series of accolades the company has received in recognition of its efforts to create and sustain a positive workplace culture.

Co-founder and CEO, Steven C. Bilt has a 96 percent approval rating on Comparably and has been named a Glassdoor Employees Choice Top CEO for the past two years.

“For a company named Smile Brands to receive a Happiness Award might seem like the most natural thing in the world,” explains Bilt. “But, in reality, it’s not that easy. Delivering a consistently outstanding patient experience across over 400 locations 52 weeks a year is only possible when employees and affiliated providers feel engaged, supported and motivated by the company’s mission.”

Comparably’s Happiest Employees Awards are derived from ratings provided by employees that have anonymously rated their companies on Comparably.com between September 12, 2018 and September 12, 2019. A combination of compensation, work-life balance, perks and benefits, and overall culture scores, are used to determine employee happiness.

“Happiness at work is an important metric that should be used when determining who we want to work for and how we want to work,” said Comparably CEO Jason Nazar. “Providing your workforce with a positive environment, clear goals they can be invested in, and a comprehensive compensation package is a winning formula for the top-rated companies on our Happiest Employees list.”

Smile Brands is the highest ranking healthcare provider to receive the Happiness Employees award and the only dental support organization to be named.
