Nashville, Tenn. – Aug. 28, 2018 – Marquee Dental Partners, a leading dental support organization, today announced the affiliation with a ninth practice in the state of Alabama, bringing Marquee’s total operations to 27 dental practices in the states of Tennessee, Alabama and Kentucky.

Founded by Carl A. Humphries, DMD, PC, more than 30 years ago in Arab, Alabama, the practice provides general dentistry services to individuals and families throughout the greater Huntsville area. By offering dentists both the support and clinical autonomy they need to succeed, Marquee Dental enables them to focus their attention on providing the best oral healthcare services possible.

“Dr. Carl Humphries and his team have built an outstanding practice that has been well respected in the community for decades, and we are happy that they are joining Marquee. Partnering with Dr. Humphries strengthens the Marquee clinical team even more and enables us to meet the needs of more patients,” stated Marquee Dental CEO Fred Ward.

“We know that patients have come to appreciate the relaxed, friendly and professional environment provided by Dr. Humphries and his staff. We are pleased to bring our efficiencies and systems to free their time for patients,” said Ward. “Without the administrative and management responsibilities, Dr. Humphries will have more time to focus on the strong patient relationships that built this great practice in his name. We look forward to helping support and grow the practice even more.”

According to Dr. Humphries, “Our partnership with Marquee Dental is founded on trust and common values. We have a mutual commitment to serve the dental needs of all patients. For the first time since I graduated from dental school, and with Marquee’s support, I can focus solely on providing great dental care. The team at Marquee gives me the autonomy to practice as I always have, and their support throughout the transition with my team and me has been outstanding.”
