Testimonials from our members

Learning opportunities for both dentists and teams

"Smile Source is much more than a buying group. They’re here to help me succeed, and for me, the greatest benefit is the comradery.

I get to speak with some of the best dentists in the country as we help each other succeed as independent dentists focused on our patients. We’re in this together."
Dr. Dean Hutto

"In my region, we have four meetings a year where our local members get together, and we do something called Peer Mastermind. We select an issue to discuss and help solve problems for members. And I don't know any other group that does something like that.

I've met some of the best dentists through this organization who are willing to share best practices. We all learn from each other's mistakes, and to me, that's more valuable than anything else."
Dr. Holly Ellis

"Participating in The Exchange for the past two years has been a rejuvenating experience for our office.

It has reignited the passion among our staff , inspiring a collective commitment to making our office the best it can be. The valuable insights and connections gained during this event have contributed immensely to our continuous improvement and dedication to excellence."
Dr. Arnold Peace, DMD

"The Smile Source Exchange has year after year, been one of the best CE meetings that I've attended, not just from a clinical education aspect, but the managerial and motivational speakers as well.

It is appropriate to bring your staff and assist them in their development as well as job satisfaction. "
Ted Reese, DDS, MAGD, NMD
Indianapolis Dentistry
"Through the Smile Source Facebook Group, a discussion on office overhead and practice profitability prompted me to reconsider my accountant. While he was competent, I felt the need for more comprehensive support. Connecting with a fellow Smile Source doctor led me to a new accounting firm, a decision that proved invaluable during the COVID shutdowns.

I credit my ability to navigate those challenging times to my new accountant. It all began with the shared best practices of like-minded colleagues, driven by a shared goal of ensuring the survival and success of independent dentistry."
