The former Small Smiles in Greenville, SC operates as under Pleasantburg Drive Health Center, PC. The North Charleston South Carolina Small Smiles operates under Rivers Avenue Dental Health Center, PC. All of the above listed Professional Corporations were registered on July 30, 2014 with Dan Spears as the Registered Agent.
Moving over to Georgia, Daniel Spears is still listed as an officer of the former Small Smiles of Savannah, GA which is now operating as Savahhah Smiles Youth Dentistry, PC. with the princial office as 4746 Wehunt Trail SE, Smyrna, GA. with Todd Bjur, DDS as CFO and CEO.
Two new PC’s were filed in January 2016 at the South Carolina Secretary of State: Wesmark Dental Health Center, PC in Sumter, SC and 45 Wesmark, LLC; the Registered Agent for both of these corporation is also Dan Spears.
Below is the record on Dr. Proctor at the South Carolina Dental Board. He is not listed as having a licenses in North Carolina, but does appear in the College of Diplomats of the American Board Of Pediatric Dentistry.(ABPD), as does the former Chief Dental Officer of Small Smiles, Dr. Steven Adair. The ABPD should not be confused with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). Amazingly, Dr. Proctor was issued a South Carolina dental license just days prior to the creation of all the professional corporation registered to Dan Spears; 16 days to be exact.
The address for Dr. Proctor in North Carolina, according to the ABPD website is 1056 Meadowlands Trl NW and although it can be found associated with “Clinton Children’s Dentistry” the address is that of a home, not a dental clinic, and Clinton is Clinton, New Jersey.
According to the New Jersey Dental Board website, Dr. Proctor was issued a dental licenses there in 1983 and at one time had a couple of clinics.
Getting back to Dr. Todd Bjur, DDS, a long time Small Smiles dentist—as is Daniel Spears—according to the Georgia Secretary of State website, Dr. Bjur and Dr. Terrence VanDiver are officers in the other former Small Smiles clinics in Georgia, as is a company, Paranet Corporation Services, Inc.
Oh, and according to the 2016 annual reports, the prinicpal office address for the other Georgia clinics is 401 Church Street, Suite 2210, Nashville, TN 37219.
Clearly, folks in Nashville are still involved and the new corporation structure is meant to continue the confusion.
