Dental Depot is a different kind of DSO. For more than 45 years, we’ve been providing our patients with superior care at an affordable price, and we do it while staying true to our mission of being consistent, familiar, and friendly stalwarts of the communities we serve.
Unlike other group dental practices, Dental Depot is truly doctor-owned, consisting of individual offices that are led by experienced doctors with a passion for patients. We build, own, and operate all of our own locations, then give our providers the opportunity to buy into those practices, giving them all the benefits of a large-scale company without the layers of bureaucracy and administrative hassle. What’s more, many of our offices are owned by multiple doctors, encouraging a collaborative learning environment that makes us all better. Here’s more on our ownership opportunities.
Dental Depot’s supportive and collaborative work environment is designed to help everyone at every level enjoy the kind of professional success and satisfaction that comes when you love your job. It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting out or seeking to advance your career, Dental Depot is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and make a meaningful impact in the field of dentistry.
At Dental Depot, we understand that reaching your fullest potential takes more than just hard work; it takes smart, caring leadership and the shared investment of a team. Our unique business model of partner-owned and operated practices allows everyone–from our doctors and hygienists to our office and professional support staff–the autonomy, flexibility, and opportunity to focus and flourish. At Dental Depot, we make it our mission to enrich the professional experiences of our employees so they can enrich the lives of our patients, whether that’s through continuing education, cutting-edge technology, community engagement, or all of the above.
At Dental Depot, being doctor-owned means dentists have access to unparalleled support and autonomy. A robust patient base gives you the freedom to practice without quotas and at your own pace in state-of-the-art facilities with innovative treatment technology, all while working alongside multiple doctors with years of experience and a variety of expertise. Instead of relying on large teams of specialists, Dental Depot provides multiple layers of peer support to help our dentists grow in the capacities and capabilities that interest them. Through individually tailored mentorship programs, one-on-one guidance, and more than 100 hours of continuing education, Dental Depot both challenges and encourages our dentists and doctors to develop professionally and personally.
Dr. Glenn Ashmore built the first Dental Depot in Oklahoma City in 1978 with a vision of educating his patients and empowering his doctors. More than four decades later, Dr. Ashmore is still practicing, and, under his leadership and guidance, Dental Depot has grown to more than 30 locations, all of which are owned and operated by doctors who are deeply committed to providing compassionate, common-sense care to the communities they serve.
With two pathways to ownership, Dental Depot offers dentists a unique “middle ground” between the stress of a solo practice and the red tape or assignment rotations of a big corporation. Not only can you practice in a way that makes sense for you and your patients, but you also gain routine access to world-class technology, subject matter experts, and professional support, allowing you to deliver better products, better care, and better outcomes.
An Associate Partnership is a path to ownership with a buy-in incentive. A typical associate partner will have between 2 and 5 years with Dental Depot but may not yet have the financial backing to become a partner-owner.
A Partner Ownership is a partner-centric structure in a doctor-owned and operated company. Typical partner owners will have 5 or more years with Dental Depot or will have entered an accelerated alternative to the associate partner path.
At Dental Depot, we believe “work-life balance” isn’t just a catchy phrase—it’s an absolute necessity for healthy careers and healthy doctor-patient relationships. When we take care of our doctors, we also take care of our patients, allowing us to build a real community and not just a business.

Dental Depot began in Oklahoma City in 1978 with a vision of delivering high-quality, common-sense dental care with a personal approach and at an affordable price. While our company has since expanded beyond that first original office building, we’ve never outgrown what makes us special–investing in the people around us. After more than 45 years of staying true to our founder’s passion for family-owned, -operated, and -oriented service, our roots have only grown deeper and stronger.
