North Carolina practice files for bankruptcy, closes amid pandemic

A North Carolina dental practice with about 13,000 existing patients has filed for Chapter 7 liquidation amid the pandemic, according to The Business Journals.

Wake Forest (N.C.) Smiles closed Sept. 6 after 13 years of business, according to practice owner Jane Quintana, DMD. In an online letter to her patients, Dr. Quintana said she "made the tough decision to retire from Wake Forest Smiles and close my dental practice."

The dentist cited pandemic-related difficulties and said she plans to spend more time with her family.
