Be a part of something special

We have a simple vision: to celebrate specialty dentistry, ensure every community has access to specialty care, and deliver extraordinary experiences our patients will rave about.

About us

Discover your path to exceptional specialty dentistry

We represent a close-knit community of hometown pediatric dentists and orthodontists committed to creating exceptional patient experiences each and every time. Specialty Smile Partners supports the business aspects of each practice, allowing our doctors’ full attention to remain with their patients (and not with managing HR, marketing, IT and more).

Associate doctors

Whether you’re looking to join an organization committed to patient-centered care or dream of owning your own practice one day, Specialty Smile Partners can help you achieve your personal and professional goals, no matter your path.

Happier doctors mean happier patients

Specialty Smile Partners practices deliver exceptional dental experiences in hometowns near you.

When I began my partnership with Specialty Smile Partners, one of the things I valued most was the emphasis on doctor-centric practice; SSP enables the provider to deliver care in the exact way they want. The SSP team has provided me with any tools or systems I request to treat patients in the way I am comfortable with. To this day, I feel a great sense of autonomy in my daily practice, and I credit that to the doctor-oriented stance that the company upholds.
