Guest Bio

Hunter Smith DDS is a 28-year-old general dentist in Jonesboro, Arkansas. He graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in 2014. Soon after, Dr. Smith bought his first practice. After successful management and system changes increased that already successful first practice by 46% profitability in just 1 year, Dr. Smith grew to enjoy learning about the business of practice ownership and ways to improve clinical, business, staff, and patient relations. Building upon the early success, Dr. Smith joined up with a long-time best friend and fellow dental school graduate, Will Little, to form Southern Dental Group in October of 2015. Since forming SDG, Drs. Little and Smith have acquired an additional 5 locations in the last 18 months.
