How it all began
Having a vision of a network of doctor owned and operated dental practices, Dr. Roberts opened the first practice dedicated to fulfilling this mission in 2002. While the name Kids Dental Brands wouldn't come around for another almost 20 years, the concept was hatched.
As we opened our first clinics in Arizona, we were fiercely determined to provide patient-centric dentistry, with decisions on care driven by the child's needs not by balance sheets and bankers.
We believed then and still do today, that every kid, regardless of family income, deserves quality dentistry in a fun, upbeat environment. This philosophy grew into a business plan that fulfilled a need in the community and proved the doubters of this inclusive, patient- centric model wrong. Dr. Roberts continued to find likeminded individuals that were committed to this mission, and he formed a team that helped him figure out how to achieve aggressive, yet smart growth the whole while staying true to our core values.
There have been many difficult decisions over the years: where to grow, what is the right way to grow, what processes to use, and how to get better at serving the families we are lucky to call patients. Fortunately, having a true understanding and unwavering commitment to our mission, provides a clear beacon to guide us.

Growth is Simply a Byproduct of Our Mission
With 48 offices, we are one of the country's largest Medicaid children-focuses dental provider networks. In the past year we saw almost 600,000 dental patient and orthodontic visits.
However, our daily mission is not about growth or the scale of the organization – growth is just a byproduct of our core purpose, values and our relentless goodwill to do everything we can for the children we strive to serve.
We always return to our core purpose, remembering each one of us has unique gifts and talents we employ in our service to others. It is in this sharing of spirit that we reach the ultimate goal of realizing our common bonds as we take the next step together toward our future.
