there is nothings to guide you.
It's not possible (and not intended) to make profile page as business page.
Create just a new business page through business.google.com/create

Could you clarify what you mean by desired G+ name? Are you referring to a custom URI that you have accepted for your Google+ profile, that ought to represent a person rather than a thing (such as a business)? As Helmut G mentioned, there is unfortunately no way to convert a Google+ profile to a Google+ page.

Hi @Dubai Smile D,

I understand your frustration. This is very common where a user creates a personal profile and then wishes to have the same +vanityURL as the URL for the business page. 

 

This is not possible, as there can only be one Vanity URL. 

 

Your only option at this point is to create a Local Business page at business.google.com and create a vanity URL that is +DubaiSmile{add extra letters or numbers}

Hello @wasaweb

 

The  Business page of @Dubai Smile D got already a custom URL

Thanks @Helmut Geissler.

 

I am slightly confused by the initial post, since https://plus.google.com/+SmileArtDentalClinicDubai is a verified local Google+ page, which raises the following two questions: 1) what is the profile page that @Dubai Smile D is referring to; and 2) what is the desired G+ name that @Dubai Smile D wishes to transfer.

 

If I understand the situation correctly, then @Dubai Smile D wishes to transfer the custom URI on https://plus.google.com/+DubaiSmileDentalClinic to https://plus.google.com/+SmileArtDentalClinicDubai? In such instance, and as far as I am aware, there is no way to swap around custom URIs as far as Google+ is concerned, though would it make sense to contact Google My Business (https://support.google.com/business/contactflow)?
