About Dr. Schmalz:
His South Dakota Favs:
“As an Aspen Dental practice owner, I am supported in all areas of the business, allowing me to better focus on my patients. Together with Aspen Dental Management, Inc., we’re able to accomplish so much more than if I was on my own, worrying about all the administrative minutiae throughout the day.”
Dr. Krista Johnson
Owner, Aspen Dental, Fargo, ND
About Dr. Johnson:
Her North Dakota Favs:
The cost of living throughout North Dakota and South Dakota hovers around the national average, meaning your income can cover all of your bills while still leaving you with disposable income to enjoy life outside of work.
Across North and South Dakota, there are three Aspen Dental practice owners – Dr. Schmalz, Dr. Johnson and Dr. Woodhull – who are great mentors, clinicians and leaders, and are open to partnership opportunities with the right person. There are also four offices that are classified as a Large Group Practice (LGP) meaning they aren’t currently owned by a practice owner. With more than 700 offices across 38 states, there are plenty of ownership opportunities for dentists in the Dakotas as well as across the Aspen network.
Rapid City—You’ll have a wonderful mentor with Dr. Schmalz who has been extremely successful in Rapid City. Dr. Schmalz is open to a student loan reimbursement package for the right candidate.
The Dakotas offer plenty of outdoor fun: skiing, hiking, hunting, camping, and more.
