We were a “D” before we became a DSO.

Smile One is a Dental Service Organization with the heart of a Dentist, because we were created by a dentist, not a corporation. Everything we do is carefully designed to simplify your practice, increase face-to-face time with your patients, and free your schedule to do what you do best.

Darren Riopelle has over 20 years experience operating multi-specialty practices. His vision for Smile One was to create a DSO that embraced technology and industry best practices, without losing sight of the personal interaction with each patient. Smile One offers multiple engagement opportunities to help dentists simplify their operations and grow their practices.

Affiliate Practices

Our success comes from working together.

At Smile One Services, our affiliate network includes a group of unique, multi-specialty practices. As our network grows, we are committed to providing the resources, support, and culture each practice needs for success. We value growth that is healthy for the practice, the team, and their patients.


You care for the toothaches. We’ll remove the headaches.

You didn’t earn a dental degree in order to manage an office or fight with insurance companies. Smile One can help you focus more on your patients while optimizing—and even growing—your practice. We’ll deal with the PPOs, HMOs, and payroll so you have more time for patient care.

Whether you’re just starting your career, thinking about retirement, or somewhere in-between, the support services at Smile One are designed to help you meet your goals.
