  • Brady Smith is a general dentist with “one foot in and one foot out” of a DSO franchise called Comfort Dental.
  • Brady has been at Comfort Dental for over 12 years now, joining right out of dental school to pay down $300,000 in student loan debt. Since then, he’s built three practices in locations ranging from a little town (Pueblo, Colorado) to a city (Vancouver, Washington).
  • After building two of those three Comfort Dental practices from scratch, Brady decided he has what it takes to open a PPO practice with a fellow dentist called “Tooth Docs.”
  • Outside of dentistry, however, Brady is passionate about doing charitable work with the organization he founded a few years ago called “HALO Dental Network” which provides free dental care to underserved populations throughout the country.
  • HALO is an acronym for “Helping And Leading Others.”
  • Brady also hosts a podcast called “Drilled with Dr. Brady.” The co-host, Lowell-George Granath, is a founding partner and the Executive Director of HALO Dental Network.
