NEW YORK, Jan. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Firmament Group ("Firmament"), a leading provider of tailored debt and equity capital solutions to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), announced today an investment in GPS Dental, LLC ("GPS" or the "Company"), a Jonesboro, Arkansas-based dental services organization (DSO) that manages seventeen dental practices across Arkansas, Indiana, and Tennessee.
GPS is led by experienced DSO operators, Dr. Hunter Smith and Dr. William Little, who co-founded the Company in 2015. Firmament's investment will support GPS' growth strategy of building and acquiring dental practices in the Southern and Midwestern United States.

The Firmament team has deep experience in dental and healthcare services, and their support will allow us to more predictably and efficiently grow our business through new acquisitions and continued internal improvements."
Firmament's Lauren Steel commented, "We are proud to partner with GPS, as we believe strongly in management's customized approach to practice management. Their proven model of supporting each team in optimizing the business side of a dental practice, while allowing medical professionals to focus on the work they love performing, has made GPS a highly regarded brand in the dental community. We look forward to continued growth over time, as GPS expands and deepens its footprint in the region."
