Simon Orthodontic Centers Merges with OSOF and DSOF


Kendall and Coral Way Locations’ will add General and Specialty Dental services to 30-year Orthodontic practices

Miami — November 15, 2016 – Simon Orthodontic Centers with locations in Kendall and Coral Way will now be
Orthodontic Specialists of Florida (OSOF), and Dental Specialists of Florida (DSOF), and continue providing State-of-the-Art Orthodontic care, while adding General and Specialty Dental services, emergency care and the convenience of comprehensive family care, to each location.

“Dr. Simon was an industry pioneer who focused on patient care, so adding the most qualified Dentists and Dental professionals to join the Orthodontic care teams is a great benefit to new and existing patients who want both services under one roof,” said Alan Shoopak, D.M.D., OSOF and DSOF’s founder and practitioner.

Simon Orthodontics was founded by Dr. Simon in 1978, and for six years operated alongside OSOF’s 30-year old statewide group. OSOF recently launched DSOF in order to add Dentistry to its 33 Orthodontic offices throughout the State. The launch of DSOF will make OSOF and DSOF the largest privately held Orthodontic and Dental practice in the Southeastern United States.

Alan Shoopak, D.M.D., graduated from Tufts School of Dental Medicine in Boston in 1982. After earning his Orthodontic Certificate and founding OSOF in 1984, he became the first Orthodontist to advertise “Affordable Braces” listing the exact prices for braces, something the group still does today. He is also the creator of Shoo Goo™ Dental Relief Gel — a powerful, safe, all-natural, preservative-free, easily absorbed, plant and essential oil-based gel that works fast to fight oral aches, discomfort and inflammation, made in the USA.
