Since its founding in 1978 by Dr. Glenn Ashmore as a private practice, Dental Depot has remained a family-owned and operated dental practice. Although we have grown over the years, we remain dedicated to preserving our ties to the communities we live and work in, and to treating your family as a part of our own.
Dental Depot was first introduced to the Phoenix Metro Area in 2008 when Dr. Jason Arthurs, a former Dental Depot dentist in Oklahoma, moved to Arizona and became a Dental Depot Partner. It took only 4 more years until Dr. Arthurs opened his second Dental Depot in the Phoenix Metro in 2012.
After seeing the success of the first Phoenix offices, it didnt take long for Dr. Glenn to make the decision to expand in Arizona as well, opening his first Phoenix Metro location in Surprise in 2020,with more locations to come!
Our goal is to provide every patient adults and children alike with the high-quality, affordable dental care they need and deserve. At every Dental Depot location you will experience a clean and relaxing office, friendly staff and highly trained, compassionate doctors, assistants and hygienists. With Dental Depot, you can always count on receiving a common sense approach to your dental needs, and the information required to make an informed decision about your own care.
But Dental Depots commitment to the communities we serve extends beyond our walls. We offer a wide range of community support including: a free dental educational program for area schools; non-profit, educational and community sponsorships; holiday parades and other community events. We feel the biggest reward is the realization that weve made a significant change in someones life and we hope to continue to grow as an integral part of your life and community!
The original cottage-style dental practice was very different from the Dental Depots we know and love today. At the height of Oklahoma Citys Oil Boom, and with office space in short supply, Dr. Glenn decided to convert a residential duplex into his first office. The original office was located in the historic Linwood neighborhood at Northwest 23rd Street and Drexel Blvd., which latter came to be home to todays Central OKC location.
Train memorabilia and antiques lined the walls and exterior of the original building, similar to how they do today, complete with a working model train that ran along the wall through the patient operatories. Over the years, these unique features have become synonymous with the name Dental Depot, and its fun and comfortable atmosphere.
Then, in 2001, disaster struck. An electrical fire destroyed much of the internal structure of the office and led to a complete rebuild from the ground up. It was then that the classic 19th century train station architecture was utilized to create the iconic dental depot look. Mustart-yellow slatted exteriors, clay-red roofs, and the lofty clock-tower were all a part of this reconstruction. Whether it is a train running from room to room, or an amazing collection of train memorabilia, there is always something interesting to capture your attention.
Dental depots presence in the Linwood community has been mutually beneficial. Many beautification efforts in the form of new lamp posts, benches, and seasonal landscaping of road medians have been a direct result of the offices presence and community outreach. These efforts have resulted in accolades by the OKC Beautiful organization, a Keep America Beautiful affiliate.

I 'm probably not much different than most men and ladies that absolutely dread going to the dentist. I was recommended to Dental Depot by my son 's girlfriend, Katrina. The staff at Dental Depot was so accommodating assisting me with the my visits. Katrina, is a dedicated professional regarding dental hygiene and easy on the eyes. In fact, she is regarded as the best of the best amongst dental hygienist. Her knowledge is not just with hygiene but with anything related to dental health. She also teaches & is a guest lecturer regarding anything related to dental health. Dr. Arthurs is truly a gifted artist with his experience as a dentist. I needed a complete root canal + a partial root canal in which I lost the crown at some point of time previously. He was extremely gentle and concerned about how I was feeling during the procedure. Also, another member of the staff was Martin. At Dental Depot, Martin has a giant personality within his slender 5 '5' frame. Martin treated me like royalty and as if I was part of his family. I 'm ever so grateful to have had a fantastic experience at Dental Depot. I have already recommended one of my colleagues from work. They are in a class of there own with the excellent service that I received from the staff.
I had a dental emergency as a first time patient. Dr. Arthurs & his staff immediately put me at ease & made the visit enjoyable! They genuinely care about their patients as if they were family, & you will love them too.
