Leading Regional Dental Services Organization Seeks to Expand Footprint as it Celebrates 20th Anniversary
Simply Beautiful Smiles has named veteran executive Tim North as CEO, as the leading regional dental services organization seeks to expand its geographic footprint and dental offerings with the acquisition of additional top dental practices.
Founded 20 years ago by Dr. Louis D’Angelo, Simply Beautiful Smiles has been a trailblazer in elevating the dentistry experience for both patients and practitioners through a culturally oriented organization that is patient-centric, doctor-focused and staff-driven. With more than 25 locations, the company is now the Delaware Valley’s largest dental provider, serving Central and Southern New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, and Northern Delaware.
North joins from Aspen Dental, where he served as Senior Vice President of Operations and was instrumental in leading the company through an extraordinary period of growth and success. During his tenure, he helped propel the company to seven consecutive years of record revenue and profit as it added more than 500 new locations.
"Simply Beautiful Smiles stands apart in the dental industry as an organization where the best doctors come to do their best work and where patients come to receive exceptional, compassionate care," said D’Angelo, who will continue to serve as Chairman and Chief Dental Officer of the company. "In addition to bringing an impressive operational track record, Tim is passionate about our unique model within the DSO industry and believes wholeheartedly in the SBS philosophy that everyone deserves a beautiful smile. As we look to embark on a strategic growth agenda and enter an exciting new chapter, he will be a tremendous asset to the company."
"Access to quality, affordable dental care remains a critical need across our country," said North. "Since its inception, Simply Beautiful Smiles has been focused on not only meeting that need, but also on raising the bar by creating an operational structure that attracts the industry’s top practitioners with an environment that makes it easier to devote their energies to doing what they do best – treat patients.
"Having successfully expanded its family of practices by staying true to its founding values, Simply Beautiful Smiles is well-positioned to expand its geographic footprint and specialty services offerings," North added. "I am delighted for the opportunity to work with Lou and the outstanding senior management team now in place to help lead the way on this exciting journey."
Prior to Aspen Dental, North served as Senior Vice President of North American Operations for Papa Johns’ Inc. and, before that, General Manager of the Northeast for Yum! Brands, Inc. Earlier in his career, he held management position at Kinko’s, Universal Studios Hollywood, and PepsiCo, following distinguished service as a Lt Commander in the United States Navy. A graduate of Siena College, North earned a master’s degree from the US Naval War College and an MBA from Providence College.
