    Guardian Dentistry Partners Expands into Sixth State

    Rapidly growing network adds Florida to dental family

    MIAMI – September 29, 2020 – Less than one month after announcing a new partnership in North Carolina, Guardian Dentistry Partners today announced the addition of the state of Florida to its swiftly expanding network of partnerships across the United States.

    Guardian’s first Florida-based partnerships are with Aberdeen Dentistry, located in Boynton Beach, and Gardens Dental Care from Palm Beach Gardens. Both practices are thriving in their respective South Florida communities and are led by innovative, talented and experienced dentists.

    “Our partnership with Guardian allows us to maintain our boutique-style private practice,” said Dr. Hillary Krawatsky, who has led Aberdeen Dentistry since 2009. “We have such a homelike practice and really take pride in focusing on the whole patient; healthy mouth and healthy body, as I like to say.”

    Dr. Krawatsky, who also has a background in nutrition and biochemistry, noted that her practice offers not only comprehensive dental services, but also health screenings and nutritional counseling. “We feel we are having a real impact on our community’s overall health,” she added. “With Guardian as our new partner, these services will be even more enhanced.”

    Dr. David Yates, who has been practicing dentistry for more than 30 years, acquired Gardens Dental Care in 2011 and has grown the practice tenfold since then. “Guardian was such a good fit for us,” said Dr. Yates. “The brand that we have built, the patient care…none of that will change with this partnership. We’re so excited to join the Guardian network.”

    “We’re always looking to improve our patients’ experiences with us,” added Dr. Yates. “When we made the choice to go with Guardian, it was not just a business decision. We wanted a partner who understands us, who supports our growth and who will be at our side every step of the way.”

    Dr. Hisham Barakat, recently named Chief Clinical Officer for Guardian Dentistry Partners, echoed the new partners’ sentiments. “Aberdeen Dentistry and Gardens Dental Care are perfect partners for us,” said Dr. Barakat. “They are strong, independent practices with bright futures ahead of them. We’re really looking forward to helping them achieve ever more success.”

    Already partnered with dental practices in five other states, Guardian Dentistry Partners is a Dental Partnership Network that focuses its mission on support. With Guardian, dental practices and groups are preserving their special cultures while protecting their futures; Guardian functions as the practice’s partner not proprietor.
