Founded by Dentists

InterDent was founded over 30 years ago by a group of dentists who realized that they could improve patient care if they retained business professionals to provide administrative and business support. Today, under the brands Gentle Dental, SmileKeepers, Blue Oak Dental, and Capitol Dental, InterDent provides comprehensive dental support and administrative services to approximately 175 practices employing more than 400 dentists across eight states: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Kansas, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Washington.
