Founded by Dentists
InterDent was founded over 30 years ago by a group of dentists who realized that they could better focus on patient care if they retained business professionals to provide administrative and business support. Today, under the brands “Gentle Dental” and “SmileKeepers,” InterDent provides business services to approximately 200 practices in eight states including Arizona, California, Hawaii, Kansas, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon and Washington.
Our mission is to provide the best business support to our affiliated practices in order for them to deliver quality clinical services and achieve the high levels of oral health and patient satisfaction that their patients deserve.
As pioneers in the field of Dental Service Organizations, InterDent’s success flows from decades of experience supporting affiliated dental practices and their patients. Currently InterDent:
- Provides business support services to nearly 200 affiliated practices
- Is affiliated with more than 475 dentists
- Coordinates more than one million patient visits annually
- Supports trusted brands including: Gentle Dental, SmileKeepers, Capitol Dental and Blue Oak
As a leading Dental Service Organization, InterDent provides a large network of resources, including experienced non-clinical office staff and corporate support services such as:
- Education & training coordination
- Management information and reporting systems
- Expert support services including but not limited to accounting, marketing, call center, IT, and revenue cycle management
- National vendor contracts yielding tangible economies of scale for supplies, equipment, laboratory services and information systems

Committed to Patient Satisfaction
At InterDent, we are committed to service excellence for patients during all interactions with our affiliated dentists. We strive to make sure patients are well informed, help them schedule their care, coordinate payments, and ensure that they remain delighted with their decision to place their oral health in the hands of their chosen dentists.
Notice: InterDent provides non-clinical business support services to independently owned dental practices and their licensed health care professionals, each of which is solely responsible for the diagnosis, treatment and delivery of oral health care services to their patients. All clinical services are provided by licensed personnel employed by or otherwise contracted with independent professional practices. InterDent does not practice dentistry or employ licensed professionals to provide patient care.
