A Look at our Journey so Far


The Early Years

Starting in 1969 as Semantodontics, SmartPractice was formed as a new “idea” company that has since developed into a leader in “people-oriented” services and products for the progressive growing practice. Since the early days of Semantodontics, health care professionals began realizing, with ever-increasing importance, the need to establish mutually beneficial relationships with their patients. These relationships are necessary for the professional to facilitate a lasting behavioral change in the patient, resulting in better health and greater longevity. Motivating a lasting change requires effective communication. Semantodontics was created out of the need to build these relationships.
