Dr. Kevin Chapman Transitions to DSO SIMKO Specialty Dental

I wish I had a team like Specialty Smile Partners in my life 20 years ago. They have helped me do a better job, because I can focus on just orthodontics. My practice is affiliated with Specialty Smile Partners, but I’m still Chapman Orthodontics. It’s great being able to do what I’ve always done through the years. Only now, I’m doing it better!

Dr. Scott Smith Transitions to DSO SIMKO Specialty Dental

The transition experience with Specialty Smile Partners has been seamless. Anxiety will always come with change, but I can truly say that the people at Specialty Smile Partners, under the guidance of Drs. Kristo and Spitz, have been the difference maker. I haven’t thought of this process as selling—my experience has been one of partnership. And when it came to who I would partner with to continue and evolve my business, it was critical they shared my values. Specialty Smile Partners' focus on supporting extraordinary patient experiences made this a simple decision for me and my team.
