DENTAL WEST ASSOCIATES MERGES WITH SMILES DENTAL, BECOMES SMILES DENTAL WEST SALEM

DENTAL WEST ASSOCIATES, A SALEM, OR DENTIST, AND SMILES DENTAL, ALSO A SALEM, OR DENTIST, MERGED OFFICES IN ORDER TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE COMFORTABLE, HIGH-QUALITY DENTAL SERVICES TO THEIR PATIENTS.

Smiles Dental recently announced that it has merged with dental care provider Dental West Associates, another dental practice located just across the parking lot in Salem, OR. The two offices joined forces on June 16 in a merge that will offer patients additional benefits, such as extended business hours and a broader range of dental services and a total of four doctors to treat and serve our patients.

With the merge, Dental West Associates’ Dr. Raleigh Pioch, will be able to focus his energy on treating patients, which is his passion and desire. The Smiles Dental professional team will oversee the day to day office operations and administrative functions within the practice and continue with the same clinical team in the combined office.

As the two offices combine within the Dental West location, patients can expect to receive the same care they have come to trust under a new name: Smiles Dental West Salem. Both practices are merging doctors and staff members in a partnership the CEO of Smiles Dental, Dr. Jeromy Dixson, says will provide the best benefit to all patients.

“Dental West Associates and Dr. Pioch share our mission of ultimate service, superior performance and positive impact, and we are excited to have such a truly exceptional team join the Smiles family. Combining our existing Salem office into the Dental West facility will provide patients in Salem improved service with more convenient hours while being treated with compassion and care,” says Dr. Dixson.

Dr. Pioch is also excited about the merger, saying, “Smiles Dental is a quality focused group practice, and I am pleased to be joining their team. By joining Smiles Dental I am able to concentrate on treating my patients, while they take care of the operational side of the business. Very little will change for my current patients – just a new name.”

According to Smiles Dental, recent trends show that many individual dentists are opting to join dental groups in order to simplify their routine operations. This gives the doctors freedom to focus solely on patient care, while the daily administrative processes are attended to by trained staff members.
