Thoughts from Affiliated Dentists on Partnering with Benevis
“The Benevis team has been most supportive and responsive as our staff has made its transition from a private solo practice to members of the Benevis family.”
—Dr. Lynn Shaw, Practice Owner
“What I like best about Benevis is that I am able to run my practice exactly the way I always have.”
—Dr. Martin Diamond, Practice Owner
Affiliating with Benevis has lifted so much of the day to day stress off of my shoulders. It's nice working with people who really care about you—not just the well being of the practice, but of you as well. I can truly say dentistry is fun again!
—Dr. Derrick Hampton, Practice owner
Affiliation with Benevis has been very beneficial to me as a practitioner and practice owner. Having them as a partner, has allowed me to focus 100% of my time and attention to getting the clinical outcomes my patients deserve and building the skills of my associates without the additional burden of management, entrepreneurial risk, legal liabilities and human resources demands that took up so much of my time. Now, I work a schedule where I have more time with the family and can take advantage of more opportunities for personal development.
—Dr. David Vieth, Practice owner
Working with Benevis has really changed the way I felt about being a practice owner. After years of working in my own practice it was refreshing to leave behind dealing with accountants, attorneys, paying bills, and managing every aspect of the office. In Benevis, I found a real partner with access to capital and expertise in the specific areas of practice management where I didn’t want to dedicate my time. As their partner, I’m now the owner of numerous practices where I can focus on being the best clinician, working directly with my associates, and making sure that my patients have the very best dental experience possible.
—Dr. Dale Mayfield, Practice owner
