Local Orthodontist Acquires Five New Clinics, Making His The Largest Individually Owned Orthodontic Practice In The Country

JONESBORO, Ark., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ben Burris DDS, MDS recently acquired Arkansas Orthodontics.  With a combined ten locations, his Braces By Burris and Arkansas Orthodontics brands service almost half of Arkansas, making Burris' the largest individually owned orthodontic practice in the US.  Burris says he will maintain the Arkansas Orthodontics tradition of providing affordable access to care while emphasizing excellent treatment and customer service.

"Arkansas Orthodontics is a great business and that's why we feel fortunate to have the practices. The doctors and team are fabulous people and we look forward to working with them to continue raising the bar for northwest Arkansas," said Ben Burris.

"Everyone deserves a great smile and our model delivers great care, a fun atmosphere, convenient locations and financing that makes braces accessible for every child.  Who can argue with that? It's good to do good while doing good and we are excited to share our model with as many people as possible," continued Burris.

He also administers the ProDentist and ProOrtho study groups throughout North America, where today's most forward-thinking dentists and specialists meet and learn about the business of running a practice from one another. 

Burris and his wife, Bridget, also created the model for and founded the first chapter of Smile for a Lifetime Foundation -- the largest provider of pro bono orthodontic treatment in North America. In 2012 alone, Smile for a Lifetime awarded more than 1,000 Orthodontic Scholarships to children in desperate need.
