Who We Are
In 2002, our founding dentists envisioned a company that could provide needed dental care to often underserved communities, while helping dentists manage the day-to-day administrative burdens of operating a dental office.
In 2004, we created our award-winning DentaPro dental practice management system for large groups. In 2010, we acquired DPMS, Inc. further expanding 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.
Over the years, we have grown to over 2 million patient visits per year and expanded our service offerings to become an industry leader in providing non-clinical, business support services to dental practices in 17 states.
