Duplicate Addresses Solo Practitioner with DBA. Both verified. How do I keep both business names.

I will be getting an associate endodontist or someone will buy my business within a few years. I do not want to stop having a DBA business name and a Peter D. Cancellier, DDS name. All of my reviews are at Peter D. Cancellier, DDS. The practice website is EndodonticsofOC.com. Facebook is Endodontics of Orange County @EndodonticsofOC. Twitter is @EndoOfOC. 

 

Should I call google at 844-491-9665 and find out whether I can give each a store code? and if not, ask them to merge the names? They separated the names years ago. Is there another way to fix the situation without deleting one name?

Here are the two addresses. Yes they should have the same phone number, but I bought the practice and added a better phone number so I gave one to each business name. And the they are in the same office but the google map locations are different.

@Helmut Geissler

 

Please coach me on my best choice between joining the Business listings to Endodontics of Orange County: Peter D. Cancellier, DDS or remove the Endodontics of Orange County listing.

 

If I remove Endodontics of Orange County listing, will their associated Google + and Google Maps pages be automatically removed?

 

If choosing the Peter D. Cancellier, DDS listing alone is the way to go, in order to resolve Endodontics of Orange County listing, I should choose Remove Listing on the Google my Business page, correct?

 

Thank you,

Hey @Peter C

 

do you refer tho the two listings as shown up here?:

Deleting either of both from your dahsboard will not remove them fron Goolge.

I recommend getting in touch with GMB support via one of these options and ask for help in getting both merged:

You can call also Google My Business here.

Google called me one day after I completed the form linked to @Helmut Geissler item You can call also Google My Business here.

 

They said it is fine to keep both certified listings. I asked whether the duplicate address and resolve address items on the To Do list would go away or affect my listing position. She said it did not have an effect on the listing position, but didn't confirm whether the issue would ever leave my To Do list.
