MONARCH DENTAL EXPANDS INTO OKLAHOMA CITY MARKET
SMILE BRANDS TO OPEN TWO MONARCH DENTAL OFFICES IN 2011
06/28/2011 • Irvine, Calif.,— Smile Brands Inc., the nation’s leading provider of business support services to dental groups in the United States, is pleased to announce its expansion into Oklahoma in the Oklahoma City market. Monarch Dental, an affiliated brand of Smile Brands Inc., will open an office at Yukon Village in Yukon, OK on July 8th and at University Town Center in Norman, OK on July 22nd.
The expansion into the Oklahoma City market continues the growth and mission of Smile Brands Inc. – to provide “Smiles for Everyone!”® by bringing quality, affordable dental care to local neighborhoods. Smile Brands believes that Oklahoma City, the largest city in the state of Oklahoma with an MSA population of 1,200,000 and relatively low ratio of dentists per capita is a market where the company’s model can offer significant benefits to dentists, hygienists and ultimately to patients.
“Smile Brands has been continuously increasing its nationwide presence based on demand from providers and patients, and we are very excited to be expanding into the state of Oklahoma," says Steve Bilt, CEO of Smile Brands Inc. “The Oklahoma City area offers a whole new region for the expansion of Smile Brands, and we look forward to bringing the best possible service to this market.”
To help celebrate the launch of the Monarch Dental offices in the Oklahoma City market, Smile Brands will be a title sponsor of the OKC Million, the city’s effort to “go on a diet” and lose a million pounds, which will include a booth at OKC Million events and other benefits. Additionally, the company will drive a park clean-up project throughout the Oklahoma City market in an effort to help “beautify” the area while “beautifying” the community members through dental work.
Smile Brands’ patient-centered care model continues to set them apart as an industry leader throughout the United States. By the end of 2010, Smile Brands included a total of 329 affiliated dental offices nationwide, and the company will add 35 more offices by the end of 2011.
