Southern Orthodontic Partners Recently Announced Expansion Into Chicago

Southern Orthodontic Partners (“SOP”) recently announced its expansion into the Greater Chicago, Illinois Area. This move marks a new chapter for the platform as it broadens SOP’s territory further into Northern markets.

SOP has entered Chicago in partnership with Dr. William Petty and Dr. Kathryn Bielik of Petty & Bielik Orthodontics, based in Oak Lawn, IL. The team is regarded as some of the most well-established and trusted orthodontic specialists in Chicago’s southwest suburbs, with over 50 years of combined experience between the doctors.

“I’m so thrilled to be partnering with SOP as they help support the future growth and longevity of Petty & Bielik Orthodontics,” shared Dr. Kathryn Bielik. “SOP has an amazing team dedicated to excellence in their organization and our practice. They have gone to great lengths to introduce us to key leaders and to make sure that our practice is a synergistic fit for the SOP platform.”

“Joining Southern Orthodontic Partners was an easy decision,” Dr. Petty included. “Working with people who are highly motivated to provide results that can be life-changing in many ways for our patients, staff, and ourselves is terrifically rewarding!”

This partnership represents a significant milestone in SOP’s expansion to new strategic markets. The platform has its sights set on adding more partners in the Greater Chicago area throughout 2024. Shore Capital Partners, SOP’s private equity sponsor, is based in Downtown Chicago.

As SOP continues to grow, the organization remains committed to its mission to impact the orthodontic profession through a partnership of clinical and service excellence with the country’s leading doctors. Throughout 2023, Southern Orthodontic Partners added 13 new practices in 8 states across the United States. Moving into the New Year, the SOP geographic footprint now includes 48 orthodontic practices with 85 locations across 13 states.
