    Guardian Dentistry Partners Expands into New York State with Iconic Dentist Partner

    Five practices are located in and around New York City

    MIAMI – December 9, 2021 – A significant milestone was marked this week as Guardian Dentistry Partners (GDP), already with partnerships in seven states, announced a new partnership with Dr. Marc Liechtung, an internationally respected dentist entrepreneur with five practices located in the New York City area. The partnership marks GDP’s first entry into “The Big Apple.”

    Dr. Liechtung, a renowned lecturer/author and inventor of the “Snap-On-Smile” multi-purpose restorative dentistry procedure that has changed thousands of lives across the country, received his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1986. His entire career has been in the New York City area, and he has built multiple successful dental practices there over the past 35 years.

    “My nearly 50 colleagues are teammates, not staff,” said Dr. Liechtung about his operating philosophy. “All of our success comes down to communication, hard work and respect for each other,” he added. “This is how we have built some of the best practices in New York City.”

    As for partnering with Guardian, Dr. Liechtung noted that GDP has a “like-mindedness” to himself. “What I really love about Guardian is that nobody there is ever taking a flier. They’re all experienced, very smart people. I’m very excited about this partnership and so is my team.”

    Dr. Liechtung added, “With Guardian betting big on New York and on our local team, we can now expand throughout the boroughs and state and welcome more dental entrepreneur partners into our burgeoning New York partnership. For me, it’s all about ensuring our doctors and partners are valued at the highest level and that their legacy is honored. I can’t wait to see what Guardian and we do to build a doctor-focused group in New York.”

    Guardian’s Northeast Market Managing Partner, Justin Deutsch, who is partnering with Dr. Liechtung to build the New York market, concurred. 

    “Dr. Liechtung is one of the most successful, respected dentists in New York City, really in the country,” said Deutsch. “His reputation and leadership throughout New York, in addition to his successful practices, is truly an amazing way for us to enter the state of New York.”
