SmileCare offers a full range of family dental care, including general dentistry, hygiene and specialty care, such as orthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, periodontics, endodontics, and pedodontics.

The addition of the SmileCare practices makes Tampa-based Coast Dental the fifth largest provider of dental practice support in the U.S. with 182 affiliated practices and 2,200 employees.  Prior to the acquisition, Coast Dental, with its professional associations, was the leading dental provider in the Southeast with 125 affiliated practices in Florida and Georgia.

We are excited about the opportunity this gives our affiliated dental practices to deliver a better experience to a broader base of patients."

Adam Diasti, DDS, Coast Dental's Founder, and President of Coast Dental PA, said, "Coast Dental brings a successful track record of business management, practice support and innovation that will enhance the quality of care delivered to SmileCare patients."
