Affordable Dentures & Implants – Why Work With Us?

Take Control of Your Career

Just imagine the lives we can change together...

About Us:

We were born in North Carolina in 1975, general dentist George Edwards noticed a trend of underserved patients who greatly needed tooth replacement care. With that, the first practice was established.

Since then, the affiliated network of Affordable Dentures & Implants affiliated practices has steadily grown from coast to coast - delivering "A Smile For Everyone" through consistent, knowledgeable care in extractions, dentures, and implants at competitive prices. 

Explore exciting career opportunities!

Success Through Support:

Throughout the years, a key driver of our expansion (now 280+ affiliated practice locations...and counting!) has been Affordable Care, a dental support organization that equips affiliated practice owners to meet their ever-growing patient needs. Affordable Care provides lab and business services through a nationwide network of on-site dental laboratories and extensive nonclinical support.
