Our Mantra

It's who we are.

We are revolutionizing dental care for underserved markets by innovating entrepreneurial partners to create an amazing doctor, staff, and patient experience. Listen to Emmet Scott, CEO of Community Dental Partners, as he shares the vision of CDP's mantra, how it has evolved over the years, and why we are committed to supporting those we serve.

The Clinical Constitution.

We are revolutionizing the dental industry by providing a patient-centered mindset to create amazing practice experiences.

#

Patient-
Centered

We understand that patients are more likely to conveniently complete their treatment when all oral health care needs can be provided by the same provider at the same practice.

We understand that the willingness of a doctor to complete the diagnosed treatment plan within the same day of the initial appointment is directly correlated to the patient’s probability of receiving care.

We understand that as we expand our hours and days of availability, we meet the needs of parents' and patients' busy schedules for after school and work-hour needs.

Personal
Development

We understand that in order to meet the increasing comprehensive care needs of patients, we must continually improve our clinical capability.

We understand that the effectiveness of a doctor is directly correlated to the capabilities of the team. We continually expanded our emotional intelligence and communication skills to better lead our teams.

We understand that our patients live with an inherent fear of coming to the dentist and also lack knowledge around the importance of oral health. We seek to bridge these gaps.

Our Story

From our past we create a bright future.

1,330,825+ Healthy Smiles

Celebrating a decade of opening the first smile magic. When the first one opened in Denton, TX there was only one location with 19 employees. Ten years laters, there are about 700 employed across the state and seeing over 250,000 patients at the supported offices with now 14 Smile Magic offices across the Texas.

Expanding Our Reach

CDP continues fueling DeNovo growth and expanding the model we created to give dentists more opportunities to keep giving the dental care to the community.

Commitment to Serve the Underserved

Community Dental Partners expands to rural towns adding a new brand “Family Smiles” continuing the support for associate doctors to succeed as they continue to take care of smiles while we take care of the rest.

Doctor Lead. Team Supported.

Community Dental Partners is a DSO that was founded in 2012, it provides a platform that was designed by dentists for dentists to allow them to focus on the dentistry while receiving centralize support services such as billing, compliance, scheduling, etc. As more locations opened we needed more team members to be able to support the associate doctors with the necessary resources for them to succeed. CDP helps both new and established practices maintain patient experience and the business of operating.

A Humble Beginning with Big Aspirations

Smile Magic was founded by Dr. Chad Evans in 2010 with the support of his best friend Emmet Scott. The two have been lifelong friends since the age of two. Smile Magic started as an idea from a dream that Chad had to serve underserved children. With oral health often being taken for granted, both Evans and Scott agree that reinforcing its importance is crucial, especially at a young age.
