    Guardian Dentistry Promotes VP of Partnership Development

    Guardian Grows a Leader from Within

    MIAMI – August 11, 2022 – Guardian Dentistry Partners (GDP) today announced the promotion of Max Van Vliet to Vice President of Partnership Development.

    Max, a native from Indiana, has been in various partnership development roles at Guardian Dentistry Partners for two years. Having built relationships with dentists and industry leaders, Max has made a significant impact on Guardian’s ability to build momentum in the dental industry. 

    “Max has been a cornerstone in enabling Guardian’s lightning-like growth and partnership affiliation velocity over the past two years. His leadership, his hardworking ethic and his contributions have been pivotal” said Mark Censoprano, President of Guardian Dentistry Partners. 

    Van Vliet’s role as VP of Partnership Development will be to work closely with potential doctor partners to help them pursue their partnership goals and dreams – whether that is to focus on dentistry and abdicate the administrative side of their practice to Guardian, to partner to develop and achieve specific growth plans for their practice, to grow through more locations, or to work on a succession and transition plan, Max will solve for whatever need the partner may have.

    “I am grateful and excited for this expanded role within Guardian. The success and growth of our partnerships over the past two years has truly been facilitated by the outstanding quality of our support team, our amazing and supportive partners, and our uniquely pure business model dedicated to 100% supporting the goals and dreams of each of our dental partners,” said Van Vliet.

    Prior to Guardian Dentistry, Van Vliet was at Guardian’s family office partner, NKP, as part of their health care group, focused on dentistry, primary care, and cardiology. Prior to that, he worked at Comvest Partners and Bank of America Merrill Lynch in various private equity and investment banking roles, respectively.
