Our History

Benevis was founded (originally named NCDR, LLC) in 2002 to provide non-clinical support services to dentist offices in Georgia. Over the years we grew and expanded our service offering. In 2004, we created our award-winning DentaPro dental practice management system for large groups. In 2010, we acquired DPMS, Inc. further expending our non-clinical support abilities. In 2014, we officially changed our name to Benevis to better reflect the company’s mission to improve access to dentistry by providing the highest quality non-clinical practices services to some of the nation’s leading dental practices.
