Who We Are
Guardian Dentistry Partners (GDP) was founded by a group of passionate dentists and a family office in 2018.
From the start, our unique partner-driven model ignited fast and immediate growth. Our very first partnerships started in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Texas, and Virginia. We were fortunate that our amazing quality partners attracted other passionate, like-minded entrepreneurs.
We have a saying at Guardian Dentistry Partners, “Great Partners beget Great Partners.” That simple focus has led to us doubling in size each year since inception. Though our growth has skyrocketed, that has never been our focus. Our sole concern is preserving our great culture, cultivating each relationship, and partnering with top-tier entrepreneurs who share similar values. From the beginning, Guardian’s values have been a driving force for everything we say, think, and, more importantly, do.
Each partner is a meaningful stakeholder and has a “genius” to share with the organization, leading to another expression you often hear at GDP, “Learn from the Best and Share with the Rest.” While we’ve grown to more than 148 partners and 164 practices in 11 states, and our partners are like-minded in what they value, it’s the individuality of each partner that makes the network unstoppable.
