I have a multipart request as follows:


I have had two distinct changes in ownership and brand of my business in the last 6 years and need to update across all Google platforms (GMB, Maps, Search).


My current and accurate business name is "Duo Orthodontics". It is a three location orthodontic practice at the following blocations:

(a) 2295 Parklake Drive, Suite 250  Atlanta, Ga 30345  770-939-1280   (primary location)

(b) 3380 Old Jefferson Hwy   Athens, Ga  30607

(c) 2468 Windy Hill Rd, Suite 400  Marietta, Ga 30067


This business has in the past been located at 2167 Northlake Parkway, Suite 102  Tucker, Ga 30084 and has been known by the names "bcorthocare", "Brazilbraces", "drs Barfield, Chrzan, and Associates, Tucker Orthodontic Associates", and "Tucker Orthodontic associates, drs Gordon Barfield DDS and Maria Lewis DMD", at any of the above locations.


I have recently changed the name of the business at two of the locations successfully, but not the third yet.


Currently I can see a listing on maps for the address 2167 Northlake Parkway which needs to be completely deleted. I also have GMB and maps listings for "Tucker Orthodontic Associates", as well as "Brazilbraces" which need to be merged with the new company "Duo Orthodontics" in hopes of preserving the few reviews attached to them (we would expect after merge to see approximately 37 reviews).


The primary and correct URL for the main location is:



I would greatly appreciate any help forthcoming in deleting the old business location listing, as well as merging the duplicate listings to straemline how my business presents on Google.


Thank You

Hi @gordon b


I am going to list what I found, so it can all be seen on page:


Duo Orthodontics:


Verified: 2295 Parkelake Dr


Verified: 3380 Old Jefferson



Tucker Orthodontics:


Duplicate Verified : 2295 Parkelake Dr ( Need to regain Ownership )



Unclaimed Maps Pages:

( Mark as Closed )


2167 Northlake


501 Sparta Rd


Second: 501 Sparta rd


1406 Belleview ( Already marked as closed )



Now that we have everything listed ( did I miss any ).


The one at 2167  (  ) can either be Marked as closed or you can contact business support to ask that it be marked as Moved to the nearest Verified business page.


Business Support:


This Duplicate Verified Page:


Did the previous business give you the login details ?  If not you need to request admin / ownership of the page.


Once you have been given access, then delete the page and ask business support to mark it as Moved into the verified 2295 Parklake Dr page.


To request ownership, follow this guide:
