Community Dental Partners (CDP) is led by a mixed team of dental and business veterans working together to solve the needs of today’s
modern dental professionals. Community Dental Partners was designed for dentists by dentists who recognized the need to partner with
responsible business experts. CDP’s leadership team is comprised of some of the most respected authorities in the industry working together to enhance the lives of their dentist partners.

an unlikely partnership

Sometimes combinations that seem unlikely on the surface have yielded some of the most surprising and successful partnerships. Simon and Garfunkel. Wilber and Orville. Peanut butter and chocolate. With Community Dental Partners we’ve combined a thoroughly compassionate and clinically focused dentist with a thoroughly passionate and accomplished business guy, and it turns out it was a pretty good idea. It’s a good thing too, since they’ve been friends since they were two years old.

Chad Evans and Emmet Scott first built Smile Magic, a $20MM private dental practice headquartered in Denton, Texas. Since then, they have helped several leading dental practices across the United States to retain their individuality and freedom while leveraging best-of-breed resources for all aspects of a dental business.

Motto: “Together we’re stronger”

Dr. Chad Evans is CDO, co-founder, and owner of Smile Magic Dentistry and Braces™ – an extraordinary and enjoyable dental experience for kids and their families – Smile Magic. Dr. Evans was born in Mississippi, and raised in Southern NV. He began working in the dental industry at the age of eleven when he went to work in his father’s dental lab. At 19, Dr. Evans left home for Santiago Chile where he would spend two years on a service mission for his church, working with the Chilean people. This experience gave Dr. Evans a deep love of serving people in need and an appreciation for other cultures. As an added benefit, he became fluent in Spanish. Upon his return from Chile, Dr Evans attended Creighton Dental School, graduating in 2005. He has been married for 15 years to his wonderful wife Mackenzie, and has 7 children, ages thirteen and under. Dr. Evans loves working with children, and chose to start a dental business that focuses on serving the needs of families in an exciting and fun way. The inspiration for Smile Magic and its unique approach to caring for families, especially those in need, is a culmination of Dr. Evans’ experiences in Chile, time working in his fathers dental lab, input from his own children, and loving to see kids smile. When not working, he enjoys family time, aviation, off road racing, metal fabrication, Constitutional studies, camping, and adventures.
