Southern Dental Alliance is located in the Atlanta suburb of Kenessaw, Georgia.  Their philosophy is that managing an office or trying to negotiate good deals on supplies isn’t a good use of rigorous medical training.  SDA wants dentists to focus on working with patients, while they take caree of the rest.  They strive to keep the integrity of the local practice, not to transform a practice into a cookie-cutter copy or something else. SDA is currently managing 32 dental practices across multiple brands in Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina.  Southern Dental Alliance’s dental brands include:
