Our Background

With over 50 years of combined experience in oral surgery private practice start-ups and management, our team is dedicated to providing top-notch services. 

"We've successfully launched 15 oral surgery practices across the United States and have offered invaluable management advice to over 20 established practices."

One of the founding members, Craig M. Leffingwell, DMD, has brought a wealth of expertise to the table. As a retired oral surgeon and ABOMS Diplomat, he established his own private practice in Portsmouth, NH in 1986. After retiring early for medical reasons, he transitioned into consulting established practices in 2000 and founded OMS Practice Solutions LLC in 2005 with Dr. Daniel De Tolla.

Daniel De Tolla, DDS, MD and Dave Pak, DMD, MD, two founding members of Smart Choice are experienced oral surgeons and ABOMS Diplomats. They have experience opening dental practices in a number of states and recognize the importance of having the ability to focus on great patient care while running successful practices. Their combined expertise and wealth of knowledge in this niche field of starting, managing and practicing is what makes us the Smart Choice.

Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, we forged ahead and successfully launched three new oral surgery practices in New England during its first year.

We’re proud to continue our mission of providing exceptional care and support to the oral surgery community.
