• Become A Partner

    We’re your Partner, not proprietor, and we're bothered by the notion that Partnership has to mean sacrifice.

    Not with us. It’s time for a new way forward.

    Our Model

    You’ve built a successful business, a culture to be proud of, and a team you consider family. But where do you go from here? Growth is on your mind but it's not without the challenge of access to capital or balancing the responsibilities of entrepreneurship with your chair-side time.

    Do you sell to a ballooning corporation and have a boss for the first time?

    Do you seek investors and the inherent imbalance between your contributions and their growth?

    Maybe you seek friends and family investment and be subject to calls from loved ones on how their money is doing?

    Or, do you have a conversation with us and learn how we’re reinventing what it means to be a Partner? The beauty of our model is that there isn’t just one. With us you can:

    Partner and lead your practice.

    You’ve built a great practice. Let’s work together to keep it that way. In our joint venture model, we can step in to manage the business functions that may overwhelm you all while maintaining the team and culture you hold near and dear. We’re here to take your practice to the next level.

    Partner and build a group practice.

    Have a group of practices and are looking to add fuel to the fire. We’ve been looking for you, too. Let’s join forces, expand your footprint, and give you the tools you need to build a regional business. Our partnership model and suite of services guarantee you’ll be a major player in our industry.

    Want to sell your practice and solely focus on dentistry? Sure thing. Want to partner your business and find a leadership role with us? Absolutely. Looking to scale your success regionally? We can help with that.

    Ready to Talk?

    Balance is the strength of our foundation.

    Joining Guardian Dentistry Partners means having an ownership stake which enables you to share equally in the growth of the network. Our doctors are our equity partners, empowered with tremendous upside. We are your co-pilot on this journey. You decide the destination, we’ll support you along the way.

    We believe family businesses are best served by other family businesses.

    Our founders are a group of passionate dentists and a family office dedicated to serving our team with integrity and transparency.

    Being family-owned means that your culture matters, and we are here to preserve it.

    Our promise to our Partners is to forge a path to success together. We’ll do this by committing to:

    Financial Transparency

    Personalized Partnership Evolution

    Thoughtful Transitions

    Proportionate Wealth Creation

    Support Services
