• Who We Are

    We are committed to helping our Partners create the practices of their dreams.

    Founded in 2018, Guardian Dentistry Partners isn’t your typical, corporatized dental support organization (DSO). We’re different. And it starts with how we started...we’re founded by a group of passionate dentists and a family office.

    That means we have a long-term focus on doing what’s right for each of our practices and for our organization, as we’re not driven by the same rules of your typical, private-equity backed DSO.

    There’s also another big philosophical point that makes Guardian Dentistry Partners different, and it’s why we refer to our organization as a DPN, or Dental Partnership Network. We don’t view ourselves as simply a hired-hand who just provides you with the usual “support." We’re all-in as your partner, caring as much about your practice as you do, and our network of partners are all-in in supporting each other every step of the way. Feels a lot like a family (or really, really close friends).

    We don’t believe that we exist to just aggregate and support dental practices for some self-serving, investment-driven reason. Instead, we’re working to bring together purpose-driven, like-minded Partners and professionals to create a truly unique Partnership experience. We all share in the success together. We wouldn’t want it any other way.

    Hence, the Guardian Dentistry Partners difference:

    A world-class culture

    A network of shared ideas and growth

    A leading suite of business services

    A fully transparent, shoulder-to-shoulder economic success model

    Our Support Team

    The people that make up Guardian Dentistry Partners are driven by the idea that caring more goes a long way.
