Dr. Benjamin Bowman
Dr. Benjamin Bowman graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry in 2007. After completing an associateship for a private practice, Dr. Bowman spent four years as a doctor for two different DSO’s. This time taught him the value of processes, systems and leadership. He also saw doctors in these groups crave ownership, but without a clear long term path to accomplish their goals. While attending multiple DSO conferences, speakers consistently devalued dentists due to their lack of business understanding and vision for the future. He realized the market was in need of a dentist that not only possessed excellent technical skills, but strong business skills. He believed a person who possessed both skills would create an environment and partnership model that enabled other dentists to reach their clinical, financial, and business goals. In 2012, Dr. Bowman purchased his practice from his DSO, bought a second practice and opened a de novo clinic. In 2018, with 13 locations, Dr. Bowman formed Enhance Dental with a goal of becoming the premier partnership group for dentists. Enhance Dental allows doctors to be clinicians and maintain ownership in the practice while mitigating the stress of business management. Enhance brings corporate buying power, structure and support to the dentist while also supporting the doctor through regular training and mentorship. This model has been embraced by dentists and since 2018 has grown to 38 practices across three states. Through their minority ownership stake and corporate support, Enhance doctors are able to realize their aspirations and a fulfilling career.
