Being Independent Doesn't Have to Mean Going It Alone

Whether you’re fresh out of residency looking to forge ahead in your career or an established orthodontist running a highly successful practice, we understand the allure of staying independent—even as our industry rapidly consolidates.

We understand the challenges, too. Heavy administrative burdens, poor work/life balance, the significant costs to launch a practice or continue to grow one that’s already successful… these are just a few of the reasons so many orthodontists consider joining an OSO.

At Smile Doctors, we’ve cracked the code on balancing independence vs. affiliation. Let us show you how our best-of-both-worlds approach can help you achieve success—however you define it.
