Marquee Dental Partners Affiliates with Shabo Smile Dental Studio

Nashville, Tenn. and Chattanooga, Tenn. – Nov. 13, 2018 – Marquee Dental Partners, a leading dental support organization, today announced the affiliation with Shabo Smile Dental Studio in Chattanooga. Marquee now has 16 dental practices in Tennessee, bringing total operations to 28 practices in the states of Tennessee, Alabama and Kentucky.

Founded by Dr. Drew Shabo, DDS, nearly twenty years ago, Shabo Smile Dental Studio serves individuals and families in the Tennessee Valley and Northern Georgia. The practice offers a complete range of general dentistry services, including dental hygiene, full mouth rehabilitation, crowns and bridges. Given Dr. Shabo’s specialized training in cosmetic and implant dentistry, he and his highly trained staff provide advanced services such as smile design, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening and Invisalign.

“We could not be more impressed with the outstanding dental practice that Dr. Shabo and his team have built over the last two decades,” stated Fred Ward, CEO of Marquee Dental. “One of the things that excites us the most is that while Marquee has a strong base of operations in Middle Tennessee, partnering with Dr. Shabo enables us to enter a new market and meet the needs of more patients within the Southeastern part of the state.”

“We know that patients are incredibly pleased with the professional, comprehensive services provided by Shabo Smile Dental Studio. By handling the business aspects of the practice and administrative paperwork, Marquee Dental will free the time of Dr. Shabo and his team to focus on patient care,” said Ward.

According to Dr. Shabo, “Partnering with Marquee Dental will provide management support for our busy practice and allow us to take our services to the next level. Having a beautiful smile has been a lifelong dream for many of our patients. Marquee will help us ensure that even more patients receive the smiles of their dreams more easily and more affordably.”

Marquee Dental has grown rapidly since its formation in 2015 and partners with practices through acquisitions and through de novo development. In addition to the Shabo practice in Chattanooga, Marquee’s operations within the greater Nashville area include Embassy Dental (7 locations), Mid TN Dentistry (5 locations), Nashville Family Dentistry (Nolensville), TN Dental Specialists (Franklin) and Winfree and Craig (Hermitage).
