Dr. Scott Blackman Appointed Chief Orthodontic Officer Of Southern Orthodontic Partners

We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone for Southern Orthodontic Partners as we appoint our first Chief Orthodontic Officer, Dr. Scott Blackman. Dr. Blackman is a Founding Partner of SOP, and has been a significant influence and key contributor to the platform since day one. Dr. Blackman’s passion for advancing orthodontic care aligns perfectly with our mission to provide the highest quality of clinical care and service to our patients. The addition of this role marks a new chapter in our commitment to excellence and leadership in orthodontic care.

This position as Chief Orthodontic Officer represents the “doctor voice” of SOP on a variety of internal forums, including our Annual Leadership Summit and All Partner Meetings. Dr. Blackman will play an integral role as an advocate in creating doctor alignment and developing practice leadership. As a Board Doctor and Doctor Advisory Committee Member of SOP, Dr. Blackman has already served in an important position for decision making among SOP Doctors and Central Team Support leaders.

Dr. Blackman has proven his leadership success as owner of Reflections Orthodontics, one of the platform’s two founding practices. Reflections Ortho has consistently been one of SOP’s top performing practices, and the team has been recognized with the “Exceptional Team Award” at the 2022 Leadership Summit for their demonstration of a people-first culture.

“I am looking forward to stepping into this role to work collaboratively with our Central Team Support to provide the best possible support to our great doctors across the platform.  As a young and growing company, Southern Orthodontic Partners has already become a leading organization for our specialty.  In partnership and working together, we can make such a positive impact for our patients, our communities, our company, and ultimately, for orthodontics.” – Dr. Scott Blackman

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Scott Blackman! We look forward to the valuable contributions he will bring to the platform in 2024 and beyond.
